Title: Philly News (3-11-16)

Long delay between emails but I am always saving good articles so I will share...

Although the weather in Philly has been crazy nice, the mountains out west are still in full winter mode, with good storms.  If anyone has interest in getting on a plane with me out to the western mountains, please let me know as  I am hoping for two more trips before the season ends.  Just had a solid Tahoe storm last weekend and looking at next week as well as some April skiing.

On a personal note, anyone who has not had a stress test when they reach 40, I highly recommend it.  I had one over a year ago that led to me getting a much needed stent.  I had my first nuclear stress test last month.  This article I just read could motivate you.

In terms of sports....I agree with Troy Aikman that we gave up on Chip one season too soon although I am happpy that Byron Maxwell is no longer with us.

For those thinking about summer already, I thought this video on opening a beer can was a worthy watch.

One of my highlights for the past month was seeing Bruce play in town.  A nice review for those that missed it.

And in terms of what will be a great project for the city of Philadelphia - one that will move center city from Rittenhouse to 30th Street Station - here is a great project - one similar to what they did with the Hudson rail yards in NYC.  - Mark
