So much for that…

The MPower Health and Wellness Expo you see mentioned in the next post below has been cancelled. With high winds forecasted as part of tomorrow’s anticipated nor’easter, it was deemed too dangerous to raise a tent.


Who needs sun? Come have some healthy fun!

Come out to the Mercy Eastwick Wellness Center (2821 Island Avenue in SW Philadelphia) between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday for the MPower Yourself Health and Wellness Expo,┬ápresented by Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital, Mercy Health System of Southeastern Pennsylvania, NBC10, ESPN Radio 950 and Power99. Get free health screenings, attend free workshops on important health issues, meet some of your favorite media personalities and have a fun day with the whole family. Best of all, it’s all free, from the parking to the screenings to the workshops to the giveaways.

The event will take place under a tent, so it will happen rain or shine on Saturday.

Wilkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome!

So, here goes nothing. I have done blogging for work and now am going to give it a whirl in my personal life. We’ll see how this goes.

After growing up near Princeton, New Jersey, attending Boston University and working for 4 1/2 years for both of Trenton’s two daily newspapers, I have changed careers and homes and love both. I work in marketing communications for Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital, a small community hospital in Philadelphia’s Delaware County suburbs. I am also going for my master’s in Communication Management at Temple and do some freelance writing, so I am fairly busy.

Come here for my thoughts on news, politics, sports, and whatever else I want to write about.
