Tuesday, August 31, 2010........

Crazy (busy) day starting in Denver Pennsylvania, traveling to Gap Pennsylvania, on to Berks County, and winding up in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

It's amazing just how much road construction is going on in this Country. Major highways, small towns, and back roads. It's called "hurry up - and wait"! The interesting part of this statement is that if you jump off the highways and take the detours; you're usually rewarded with a view of the countryside, you would never see otherwise.

...... just a few pictures of the countryside.........

Daniel Boone Homestead

Daniel Boone Homestead

Still trying to upload some pictures.......

The view from my office window.......

You never know where a "sales call" will present itself.

In case you don't recognize this park; it's the Daniel Boone Homestead, off of Route 422 in Birdsboro, Pennsylvania. I stopped there today on my lunch break to have a look and was quite impressed. I have passed the signs since the early 90's and never took the time to check it out.

While taking some pictures; I came upon a gentleman that turned out to be the Head Groundskeeper and we had a very good conversation about history, and then of course we discussed products used at this park.

If anyone is looking for a "Diamond in the Rough"; this is the place! There is approximately 170 acres in this area, that contain over four miles of hiking trails. There are picnic areas, camping areas and a shooting range for re-enactors. Weekends have the houses and barns open for viewing, and the grounds are immaculate.

* Many people think that Daniel Boone died at the Alamo, but that was Davey Crockett.

* The Homestead was a hiding place of a number of copies of the Declaration of Independence, and served as a meeting place for our Founding Father's while it was being discussed and formulated.

The view from my office window.......

Sorry; I'm still test-driving this puppy! I meant for this picture to be in the last grouping.

The view from my office window.......

The view from my office window.......

I would like to thank Mary Koch for the inspiration on this blog. While posting a few picture from the Delaware Water Gap this past week; Mary commented that the pictures were a lot nicer then the "view from her office window". I'm lucky enough to travel throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania as part of my job, and her words just inspired me this week to take pictures and post them on this blog.

I tend to get caught up in way too much "political crap" which does nothing but get me really upset. I hope this blog becomes a relaxing diversion.

Thanks to my son Zach for telling me what a "blog" actually is, and what you can do with it.
Thanks to my daughter Sarah for allowing me to copy her fantastic ideas that she incorporates in her blog.
...... and thanks to my company PBI Gordon Corporation for the opportunities to work for a 100% Employee-Owned Company, that allows he to travel the Tri-State area.
