Right on Chime

The Wanamaker Tower at St. James School Rings True After Tuneup

    Right on Chime
    After 110 years, the Wanamaker Bell Tower in the St. James church graveyard still needs some major repairs - but at least its chimes are back in tune. David Kasievich, Head of St. James School, led an effort in May to restore the chimes as the first part of a larger restoration of the Tower and mausoleum.

Town Watch Round Up

Roberta Ginsberg's got the skinny on the crew helping East Falls stay safe and clean.

    Town Watch Round Up
    The East Falls Town Watch discourages crime by keeping the neighborhood as free of graffiti, trash, outed lights, bandit signs, abandoned vehicles, and panhandlers as possible. By taking turns patrolling, members identify troubled spots that could use some repair and TLC.

On the Road to Healthy Pets

Vetter Mobile Pet Care comes to NW Philly with high hopes (and a little trepidation). 

    On the Road to Healthy Pets
    I consider myself somewhat brave. I will kill a spider on the ceiling. I will go down into the basement when the light is burned out. I even watched the movie "It" while I was alone. But, I am currently dealing with an issue that is testing my courage and I am worried that I might not be so brave after all.

This Old Barn

A charming piece of East Falls history gets a facelift as we dig into the property's storied past. 

    This Old Barn
    This historic barn on JeffU's campus goes "topless" for the next few weeks as it undergoes $300k+ in upgrades, including repointed walls, new rafters, and a new roof. The barn will still need further improvements before it's fully restored, but this first phase is a big step towards preserving this unique structure from the early 19th century.

Buddhist Blessings on the Falls Bridge

Imagine all the people, sharing all the world. 

    Buddhist Blessings on the Falls Bridge
    The colorful flags seen recently on the Falls Bridge aren't mere decoration, but an ancient Buddhist tradition for invoking peace, compassion and harmony. While associated today with Tibetan Buddhists, the practice of printing prayers on cloth flags has its roots in India.

Of memories and moving on: how our fathers continue to inspire us even after they've gone. 

    Fatherless Father's Day
    (Original post 6/5/18 on authorlarrybenjamin.blogspot.com) I remember the accident as if it was yesterday. I had been living in Washington, D.C. for three years. That particular morning, a Saturday, I was running late for work. It was a gray, wet morning at the edge of Winter.

I brought in a stuffed animal dog, "Penelope," and all the kids brought in their own stuffies to work with.

    The Problem with "Great Schools"
    by Ali McKay If you have young kids or use Redfin, you've probably seen the school ratings from GreatSchools. Our school is rated a "4". That's out of 10. When I was in school, forty percent is not a grade that I or my parents would have been happy with.
