Decisions Are Made By Those Who Show Up

If you haven’t heard, it’s an election year. If you think there’s room for improvement in an area that means something to you and you think it might be time to get a little more involved in the political process, here are a few things that you should know: 1. To vote in Delaware and Pennsylvania, you must be registered before election days. In Delaware, there are FOUR ELECTION DAYS THIS YEAR. April 28th is the Presidential Primary. May 12th is School Board Elections. September 15th is the State Primary. November 3 is the General Election. In PA, two election days: the primary on 4/28, and the general on 11/3.

Random But Intentional

Buzz co-owner Jennifer’s car got broken into on Christmas Eve while she was out for a run; the thief made off with her adorable purse, her prescription glasses, and a few credit cards, drivers license, and checkbook.

Are they necessary? Are t

Soon

It’s finally February, after a January of funerals and birthdays - because that’s how it goes, isn’t it? The painted ponies go up and down. By the time this gets sent to the blogosphere, the Iowa Caucus will be caucusing and the Super Bowl will have superbowled and hopefully J Lo’s wardrobe didn’t malfunction and we can check off a few more boxes in the march to spring. It’s been in the 40s most days recently. Soon the daffodils will start to push through the mulch. They are so predictable that way. So are we. As the daffodils emerge, and then hyacinth and the tulips, we emerge too. We get our pedicures and swap out our boots for flats and flip flops and, like the rituals of religion, we can
