Tuesday Comments Sept 16

No election in Delmar Delaware, even President Obama shed a tear

True -  the only people who filed for the office of Mayor and two councilmen were the present  incumbents--- Mike Houlihan, Mary Lee Pase and Greg Smith.  All are good people but it would help to have some new ideals from new people.

It is indeed a shame the apathy of holding public office continues in our town.
Well on to other things, the Lower Delmarva Genealogical Society has as it's September speaker Joesph diCarlo see the blub below;

Digital Photo Restoration and Preservation

The Lower Delmarva Genealogical Society is proud to present

Joseph DiCarlo

Mr. DiCarlo will speak on “Digital Photo Restoration and Preservation.”  Mr. DiCarlo of DiCarlo Digital Copy Center and Graphic studio has handled more photo image capturing and digital preservation and restoration projects than anywhere else in the region.

Digitally preserving & restoring historical and family photography is of great importance to the next generation. Many families have already lost troves of photographic material to fires, floods and poor storage. Some photos are salvageable but physical preservation is very costly. Digital preservation is typically a more cost effective way to capture, restore, reproduce & share photographs. We will discuss everything from image scanning to digitally fixing and restoring images to reproduction and digital dissemination.

This event is open to the public and is free.


Wednesday night at 7 PM September 24th at the Edward H. Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture at Salisbury University - Wayne and Powell Street Unit #190
I recently finished reading "The Madonnas of Leningrad" by Debra Dean.  An interesting book.  Combined the battle for Leningrad in 1941 with a survivor of it who now has alzheimer. 
and of course this upcoming wekend is Delmar Heritage days


I am involved in a general cleanup of my backyard.  I had a couple trees cut by Keith D'Armi of D'Armi Tree Service ( 410-546-1342)

and a lot of roots removed by Jeff Workman of Jeffrey's Loader Service ( 302-853-5869)

very reasonable and I recommend both of them.
