Backyard news, TGIF edition, 09.26.08

* Isn’t this pushing the season a bit? Earlier this week while walking my dog, Buddy, I spotted a glowing jack-o-lantern on the porch of a home in the Whisper Wood townhome community located off of Wenrich Street.

* Linglestown blogger Kim has posted tips on frugal living, a timely topic given all the fuss and muss about our nation’s economy.

Like Kim, I’m a big fan of living the simple life. Here’s a sample of my musings on the topic.

* Judy Hirsch, the Democratic candidate for state Senate who is challenging longtime officeholder Jeffrey Piccola, has a TV ad.

* Get to know Jesse Rawls Jr., the new principal at CD East High, by reading a profile penned by Patriot-News beat reporter T.W. Burger.

I like a lot of your 2003 thoughts and Kim's suggestions, Bill but I'd go one step further: cut the cable cord completely. We're one of the few in our neighborhood without cable (and haven't for 15 years). Sure, it's tough when asked "did you see that game on ESPN last night?" We actually have a "no TV" day on Tuesdays, which forces our 10 and 12 year olds to look for books or games
when homework is done. Our TV world has actually expanded recently, as DTV has brought us Weatherplus, MyTV21, RTN27, and WITF-HD (and better reception). Life is good, cable-free.
