Morning report. Repeat of a previous blog regarding ARRIGO history. A note about what our ancestors needed to do to not be who they were. Thomas was really a Sal. We are here in Rochester for Bill’s celebration of life sipping on some wine from Sicily. Telling stories about aunt Bessie being an Ignacia. Frank Thomas was originally called Chee-chee by uncle Peppino. Then there was the talk about Joel, Patsy and Cheech where they would make the annual trip […]
Of course he’s there for golf, do you think he’d be there to run in the BIX 7. He’s following his arrow and keeping his Important Quadrant strong by recreating this weekend on the course. If the weather in your home area is bad today, log on and follow him on the live leaderboard. Here is Ryan’ Profile. https://www.bluegolf.com/a/#/players/player/rpankiewicz
Elle,Crosby and Phoebe set out to check on the current status of the Allegheny River along Seybertown Road this morning 20 July 2021. Here is what they have to report and video and photo. If you haven’t been watching Allegheny Outfitters upriver regarding emergency rescues or Kinzua gauges you may want to start following both areas. It appears this crazy rain event that started last Monday really added a lot of moisture to the watershed. Based on what I’ve been […]
All types of things are coming down the Allegheny today due to the high water that has been flowing. This tree actually made LESLIE think of the Loch Ness Monster. What do you think? Today has been a full day of dock work: pull it in and pull it in more with some aid to the neighbors as the river keeps rising. Today was a great day for futsal in the gym. Coach Dave. After the first week of futsal […]
Heat dome in the west, hurricanes in the gulf, rivers rising with the northeast rains. Say what you may about science but here’s a picture. Guess which one is Mondays versus Wednesday if you live in Pittsburgh you know. Duke even received a mouth full of water jumping and not realizing how deep the short became with all the leaves.

Hello American Football Fans: If you are counting down until the start of Pittsburgh Steeler training camp at Heinz Field, instead of St. Vincent College for the 2nd year in a row–to minimize Covid-19 exposure risk–you probably were not following the real football competition this sumner. The biggest all European football tournament was pushed from 2020 to this summer due to the pandemic. The tournament final will be played this Sunday 11 July 2021 at 15:00 EDT in Wembley Stadium. […]
One of the discussions on the water this weekend was about keeping our bodies in motion. My current challenges are likely a result of many years playing the sport I love and lifting the iron in the gym. My maintenance and strength routine has been pretty consistent since college. What can we do to get more people moving? This was a unique feature on CBS This Morning. What do you do to move each day? What inspires you to exercise? […]
Here’s a little Fourth of July photo dump. We hopefully have pulled a new generation of river rats into Knee boarding and tubing. Phoebe and Crosby are still good with just trails. They are not yet ready to swim as sisters, Phoebe tried the life jacket and an assisted doggie paddle, but didn’t enjoy the muck. This time they were able to explore the Phillipston portion of the Armstrong trail.
