It’s been a little busy and stressful in the last two weeks, so there has not been a lot of writing on the blog. There hasn’t been much I wanted to write about nor was there time to write, so I sort of “paused” with a few exceptions. I’ve got some time off coming up so maybe that will help break the drought.
The discussion about putting a national park in Delaware is on again. One time the Cypress Swamp in Gumboro was suggested. Other times it’s been some of the beaches currently under the state’s control. Quite honestly I don’t see the point. Forty-nine other states have national parks, so what if Delaware doesn’t have one? One can only imagine the pain and suffering the federal government would impose on property owners bordering the national park, like how much fertilizer they could put on their lawn or what type of septic system they could have. The possibilities could be endless. With regard to this matter, Delaware doesn’t need to be a “me too!” state.
Our local Bonanzas closed up more than a year ago. I noticed that the Golden Corral in Seaford has now closed their doors. I have not heard why the restaurant has closed, but one can only wonder if it was run into the ground or if it just couldn’t make it in this current economic climate. From the road it appeared that the place was busy, but maybe appearances don’t mean much. Hopefully it is just a temporary thing and the doors will reopen soon.
Another personal item is worth noting here. I found out a little more than a week ago that I will be a grandfather. Well, I made my mother a grandmother at 41, so I get to enjoy the same.
Well, that’s about it for now.
