Some Friday Comments

Rain will it never end?  My yard is a mud hole.

I stopped by Mason Dixon Auction today to look at what is for sale tonight.  As you know he lets people preview the items starting at noon, auction starts at 4 PM and furniture is sold at 9:30.  There is this really large bell there tonight which looks interesting.

Their website is at

As everyone in town has noticed the Boulevard Beer/ Cheers convenience store has a name change to Corner Market.
When the weather permits, I have been leaning toward walking the railroad tracks for my morning walks
work has been going at the water wells
Well 3A is be worked on
Well 3A is 143 feet deep, which puts it in the Columbia aquifer. This well can draw 750 GPM. 
You may remember it from this post I did in 2007 on the water plant

We are currently using Well 2A which is 205 feet deep which puts it in the Manokin Aquifer. It can pump 1,000 GPM.

I see where Gordy's Pub ( GP of Seaford, LLC) has applied for a taproom and Sunday license.  If anyone wants to object, and I don't know why you would since they have been there a while now, you can file your protest with the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commissioner.

A Tom Carper Message

Excerpts from Tom Carper "Carper Connection"

Every year, members of Congress nominate young men and women for the opportunity to be appointed for acceptance into the Air Force Academy, the Merchant Marine Academy, the Military Academy and the Naval Academy. Students accepted into these programs are given a unique opportunity to obtain an excellent education, serve their country and gain valuable leadership skills that will guide them in their future.

Knowing the impact military service had on my life, I take this opportunity very seriously. As a former Naval Flight Officer and retired U.S. Navy Captain, I appreciate how the benefits of military and public service shape one's future. Although I didn’t have the honor of attending a service academy, I learned the value of combining an education with military service while I was in the ROTC program at The Ohio State University.

The application process to be one of my nominees for appointment to a U.S. Service Academy opens TODAY, March 15, 2015. The application deadline is October 15th, 2015.

I urge young Delawareans to consider this option and consider applying to multiple service academies. Interested students can access the online application by visiting my website here. For more information regarding the application process, contact Laura Wisler, my Kent County director, at (302)-674-3308 or


WW2 Soviet In Navy Uniform

The Man did a lot of accessorizing on his outfit

Soviet partisan dressed in his navy uniform. It’s interesting because during WW2 lots of Soviet sailors fought on the land (most probably due to Germans destroying their ships in the beginning of the war) and they proudly worn their hat and uniform everywhere. Most of Soviet Navy uniforms were black, so when Germans first saw the sailors charging them, they called them “Black Death
