Here is something to ponder… how does one survive during a Great Depression?  Well listen to someone who did…  As you can tell, it was a lot slower time back then….. something I think we can all look forward to….

But below is a recipe which was carried on You Tube, for the dish pasta and peas….

Of course, the pleasure is in the telling….. as those who stick through the end will discover……

And then again, we will be happy just to have work, as this next episode describes… Oh the choice’s we’ll make……

Another very important meeting will take place I am told, on September 5th, (that is this Friday) on Vance Neck Road….just north of Odessa.

This is a public (not political) meeting, although I am sure politicos will be on the sideline…

The venue is at the Crossroads Presbyterian Church… on Vance Neck Road…

How to Get to the

How to Get to Crossroads Presbyterian Church

Like Sussex County, this tiny meeting may determine our quality of life over the next century… At stake, is whether Delawareans want their lower New Castle County to become the next overgrown Bear, or whether they want a different rate of growth, one complete with all the advantages, but lacking all the headaches……

Elections are serious business. They determine the course of our future. What needs to happen at this venue on Friday night at 7:00….is that enough citizens show up, so that it will be equivocally clear that the “GO SLOW, GROW RIGHT” coalition is truly a powerful force to be reckoned with…. Everyone living in New Castle County (how I wish that were possible) needs to be at that location just to find out which politicians are on their side, and which are bought out by the developers…..

They then need to vote those stools out of office.

This should be a must=attend for anyone concerned with the quality of life of where they live…. You have always complained… so now, and here, is a chance to make your stand….

Which way are we going? You will decide……..

In light of the Paul Clark news today, and after listening to Nancy’s coverage of how developers are subverting our county government, it became obvious to me that we need to slow things down.

Tom Gorden did it when he came into office.

I think one of the two candidates needs to come out for a moratorium against all new development.

After all, it is the same argument which worked for Charter Schools.

Ban new development for one year…

Why not?

It is the public’s way of stopping development in its tracks until we decide exactly what we want to do….  A moratorium allows us to dictate the timetable, not developers who according to Nancy’s post have cheated, lied, obfuscated their way through our county government, so that individual officials think they have no other choice under law, but to award developers rights and exemptions….

Our County President is in bed with developers.  If it is not out already, it will be.

Call on County Council to vote for a one year moratorium so that we can undo the damage which has most recently been done….

Think about it.
