did you see there's a new sports bar opening at Broad and Parrish? Looks pretty nice.

I just past Girard Ave the other day. I was suprised to see so many boarded homes. SAD. However, with the economy the way it is, you are getting free housing. This will be an experience in urban living for both of you. Learn how to keep safe and be aware of your surroundings at all times. This is a life lesson because once we move to the suburbs, we tend to forget that there is danger everywhere and we must keep our loveones close. With that being said, I had a Flat tire on saturday. This was on Lancaster ave. Not too far from Girard Ave, I am a 40 year old female, somewhat street smartbut still scared of certain sitiuations. I was attending a conference at a hospital near the area and had a 2 hour drive home. well, I walked sevreal blocks to the fix a flat and basically was at the mercy of a young man who worked at the fix -a-flat who had already closed 10 minutes ago. Both him and his wife who had arrived with 3 school age boys were very kind to me. The young man assured me that he would not leave me stranded there and would find a way to to get me home. I get choke up everytime I think about it. They helped me get the flat fixed at another fix a flat about 5 minutes away. I did not know where I was going so I followed them in my noisy minivan. They even showed me how to get to the turnpike by chaperoning me there. I will never forget this kind act. So with that being said , never judge the book by its cover. There are many good people livng in what we may not consider to be good neighborhoods.
