I had to pull this page back to the front. First we started with a paint job during the pandemic. It brightened up all of the old panelling and made those rainy days in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania a little warmer. Then in 2021 we added a little grilling space. Needless to say meeting virtually and communicating here saved several actual road trips. Here’s the scope all ceilings are 8′, all trim is to remain as is with exception where […]
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.

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.

We found a new water dog for our #rileysriverrat dog pound. Doc, Sarah and Aiden came up for a day on the Allegheny. There were some tubing cherries popped. We learned what decomposing leaves smell like when you step in them and why we need to swim in the river seaweed instead. Linds received a nice love bite from the water. The grill returned to full function with kale and beet greens sautéed, lamb & grass fed beef burgers, roasted […]
Current count is three! Thanks to this long Canada Day and United States Independence Day we all should be thinking of spending our work week during this holiday from our favorite places. Why would you want to drive to and from when your COVID mobility still exists? Take this week to learn a new skill and spend time with those you love. This is for the up and coming executive. It is better than the corner office as it comes […]
Wow! Another item on the to do list does not work right now, but this is one that should be fun and help teach our team how to phrase and tell a story. In understanding the history of this team and the sport of soccer in the Ford City and Kittanning communities we are still at the infant stage. now I know why having a Ford City on my college team was quite special. Being so new becomes a giant […]
