Title: 31 Items (9-11-09) sponsored by AMERICAN MALE SALONS

Shore time is over and the amount of activities in town has immediately increased. 
Summer arrived with a rainy June and is leaving us with more rain and cold.  Only one nice day (Sat) over Labor Day weekend at the shore and this weekend seems to be a semi washout. 

Football is here and the Eagles could be 11-5 or 7-9…..and how will the Phillies do now that Lidge has been pulled for a while (finally)?   Maybe we could win some games if we can start putting together an offense again.  24 games to get it back on track.
Ski season is coming – will be sending out the trips next week (hint…..Lake Placid and Vail this year).

As always, please let me know if you are thinking of buying or selling a home…. - Mark

Sept. 13, TD Bank presents the car-free certified Bike Philly 2009, one of the most enticing cycling events to roll through Philly for the third year in a row. Thanks to The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, bikers can enjoy the sights of the Parkway, Strawberry Mansion, Overbrook, Narberth and even the Main Line on loops of 10, 20, 35 and 50 miles--the 10 and 20 miles loops being car-free. The chance to ride through Philly without the annoying (and sometimes dangerous) presence of cars is a rare one. This day of car-free, carefree biking supports the Bicycle Coalition's work to make bike riding better in Southeastern Pennsylvania, South Jersey and Delaware.

Broadband experts to address Philadelphia's digital future on Sept. 22
Join a discussion about local and national Internet policy on OneWebDay.
When: Tuesday, Sept. 22, 7 p.m.
Where: Connelly Auditorium (Terra Building, 8th Floor)
University of the Arts, 320 S. Broad Street
Philadelphia residents will have an opportunity to participate in a discussion about the future of local broadband access during a Sept. 22 policy panel. The event is being held at the University of the Arts as part of Philadelphia's inaugural OneWebDay celebration. The panel is the latest in a series of public events meant to encourage dialogue about the Nutter administration's promise to expand affordable and reliable Internet access to all Philadelphians. The event willbe held Tuesday, Sept. 22, at 320 South Broad Street in the Connelly Auditorium at 7 p.m.
Confirmed panelists include:
Allen Frank, Chief Information Officer for the City of Philadelphia
City Councilman Bill Green, vice chair of the Technology Committee
Todd Wolfson, co-founder of the Media Mobilizing Project
Derek Pew, chair of Boathouse Communication Partners
A representative from Clearwire has also been invited
Panelists will explore the question: "Philadelphia's broadband stimulus grant application is in to the Feds, so what now?" A citywide fiber infrastructure and expanded internet adoption programs could become reality. Conversely, if the Obama administration rejects Philadelphia's request for money, how can the "Digital Philadelphia" vision still be realized?

In addition to the broadband policy panel, local OneWebDay activities will include a week of volunteer technology service in Philadelphia Housing Authority developments. The initiative is intended to encourage long-term volunteerism by technologists. Check out the OWD Philadelphia website for more info: http://onewebdayphilly.wordpress.com/
