Sunday Comments

This must be the weekend for yard sales as they are up and down old RT 13 (Bi-State Blvd)

The first Delmar Artisan's Street Fair came off on Saturday.  It was small but had a steady stream of people wandering thru.

The Twitchy Smithy (Thomas Adkins) was there with a display of knives etc.  I have bought from him before, but he didn't have anything on the table that was in my price range. 
He also sharpen knives for about $2 a knife so with Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up maybe it is time for you to break down and get those kitchen knives sharpened so you can carve the roast beast.  His phone number is 410-749-9369.  He is out at 31309 Dagsboro Rd Delmar MD.

The Bread lady from the Wilde Hare in Princess Anne was here.  I bought a couple loafs of bread and a cinnamon roll.  I buy a lot from Wal-Mart and Walmart requires their suppliers to cut cost each year.  Eventually all the cost cutting that can be done in packaging etc is done and they have to start going to reducing the quality of their product, including bread and cinnamon buns.  It was a great change to eat a cinnamon bun that had not been reduced in quality. Great tasting. and with a dollar cup of hot chocolate from another vender I was a happy person

These great Tee shirts were made by the Ladies at the Peddlers four.

They have them in their shop should you be interested in not waiting until the next Artisan street Fair in November.

and the Caboose was open and members of the Delmar Historical Society were on hand to talk about it.

I do not understand the school shootings.  When I went to school you never heard of such a thing and all the boys had pen knives in their pockets and some had hunting rifles in their cars that parked at the school.  I think some shootings they publicize on TV are just the outcome of arguments and have nothing to do with a mass shooting.  Certainly TV coverage seem to encourage this sort of thing. 

A Delmar Maryland Commissioner meeting is coming up tomorrow night.  Looking at it there may be a carnival coming to Delmar  Dreamland amusements

There is a slight change in color to the trees around Delmar as Autumn advances on.

The Trees around the Police station were cut down this week

On Saturday October 17th from 10 AM to 4 PM The Edward H. Nabb Research Center at Salisbury University will hold a family history open house.  October is family history Month and the Nabb Center will have a full staff on hand to help and guide you in developing your family tree
On October 30th at 2 pm the Delmar Public Library at 38481 Sussex Highway will have  a
Delaware Humanities Forum program called Vietnam Mailbag.  The Speaker will be  Nancy E. Lynch

When American troops in Vietnam answered the call to correspond with a young reporter four decades ago, they could not have envisioned the enduring relevancy of their war letters or the rich legacy their words, photographs and memorabilia would leave to succeeding generations. Ms. Lynch discusses and reads selected war letters from her book, Vietnam Mailbag, Voices From the War: 1968-1972, based on her popular newspaper column, “Nancy’s Vietnam Mailbag.” She is accompanied by Vietnam veteran Rick Lovekin, a Huey helicopter door gunner, Cobra crew chief and frequent letter writer to Nancy, who shows slides from Vietnam set to 1960s music

Under state regulations promulgated in May 2014, all food establishments permitted by the Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) were required to have a certified food protection manager on staff.

 The regulation created an unintentional hardship for charitable and fraternal organizations that typically operate with volunteers.  Signed by Gov. Jack Markell, Senate Bill 89 exempts such organizations from the DHSS mandate.

State Sen. Bruce Ennis, D-Smyrna, the prime sponsor of the bipartisan bill, said at least seven other states have a similar exemption on the books, including: Florida, Indiana, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, and Utah.  

Sen. Ennis added that no fire company in The First State has been involved with a public health mishap related to food preparation in more than 35 years.

Joining Sen. Ennis as sponsors on the bill were State Reps. Rich Collins, R-Millsboro; Tim Dukes, R-Laurel; Ron Gray, R-Selbyville; and Dave Wilson, R-Cedar Creek Hundred.    

State Reps. Jeff Spiegelman, R-Clayton; and Bobby Outten, R-Harrington, were among the bill's co-sponsors. 
The measure cleared the General Assembly without a dissenting vote.
