Title: 33 Items (9-17-10) sponsored by Sippin By The River

Getting back in to the city scene after another nice summer in Avalon.  Attended the Eagles home opener (I think we have a long year coming) and saw Lady Gaga this week.  Lots of good events coming up  - some are even free.

In need of a Quick Books expert - know anyone?

Looking for a spot in Graduate Hospital where one could open a good size bar - Any ideas?

What is this guy thinking and what kind of crap weed is this guy peddling ($1500 for a pound is way cheap)?

I will be getting out more info on this winter's ski trips.  But for those looking for some of the upcoming movie trailors, click here.

I almost forgot....went to the Red Bull Flutag (photos) over Labor Day weekend.  Was a fun day.  If you missed it, you did not miss all that much but it was definitely fun.  Do not think anyone made it more than 20 feet. Video

Did you know there was a naked bike ride in Philly?

Read this article on our convetion center and unions.  Interesting how the city works.

As always, please think about me if buying or selling a home.... - Mark

I am involved with the Lehigh Club of Philadelphia, a non-profit organization of Lehigh University alumni.  On Saturday, October 2nd, we are helping with various home improvement projects at the School House Lane Group Home for Girls, in Philadelphia, PA.  There are 12 female residents, ranging in age from 13-18.  One of our projects is to design a make-up area for the girls.  I am reaching out to see if anyone works for or knows of a cosmetics company or chain store (Walmart, Rite Aid, Target, etc.)  that may donate some items suitable for teens (such as lip glosses, blush, nail polish, etc.)  We are trying to assemble a bag for each resident so they can have their own new, make-up.  If you and/or your company may be willing to donate any cosmetic items for these girls, I have a letter that can be used for tax purposes from the Home.   Please contact me at joanngiangiulio@yahoo.com if you and/or your company would be willing to give something towards this project.  Thanks for your generosity!
