Parking and Snow Removal

The Winter season has just begun, and we ask that when you are parking your car, you do not park your car hanging over onto the sidewalk.  When the snow removal crew are cleaning the sidewalks they need to get to all parts of the sidewalk with their equipment.  Having the car hanging over onto the sidewalk makes it very difficult for them to do so and we do not want your car to incur any kind of damage from the cleaning.

 

SELLERSVILLE THEATER and THE WASHINGTON HOUSE

Since opening in 2002, Sellersville Theater has become a vital stop on the East Coast circuit for musicians and comedians. Specializing in an ambitious, eclectic mix of top name artists and great new talent, the delightful venue is renowned for its sound quality and intimate shows. Artists have included Emmylou Harris, Lisa Loeb, The Temptations, Roy Clark, Todd Rungren, Judy Collins and hundreds more. Located just off Route 309 between Montgomeryville and Quakertown, the theater sits next to the Washington House Restaurant, a Bucks County landmark offering casual fine dining.

 

GOOD READS FOR THE LONG WINTER DAYS!

There is nothing like a good book.    One that you can hold, smell, feel the pages and wrap your hands around.    With the popularity of reading on a Tablet, we have forgotten how good it feels about reading a book.     We are not saying that Tablets are a bad thing, it’s just different.   It’s like comparing a cup of freshly perked brewed coffee and one from a Keurig.   Both give you a great cup of coffee, but the experience is different.   Regardless of the way you like your coffee, a good book goes great with it on a cold winter’s day like today.

A good book is easy to find at Center Square Towers.    It’s one of the fun amenities we offer here.      We have a FREE lending library open 24/7 to our residents.     It is located on the first floor of the B- Tower catty corner from the Fitness Center.    It is stocked with many of the classics.   You will also find romance novels, biographies, and more.    It’s a fun space to relax in; especially on a snowy day.   If you like to do your reading on a tablet, our Library has FREE wifi available, too.

We enjoyed these books and think you will too.

My Sister’s Keeper – Author, Jodi Picoult 

Anna Fitzgerald’s older sister, Kate, suffers from acute promyelocytic leukemia, a blood and bone marrow cancer.  Anna was born as a savior sister specifically, so she could save Kate’s life.  At first it is successful, but the cancer continues to relapse throughout Kate’s life. Anna is usually willing to donate whatever Kate needs, but when she turns 13, she is told that she will have to donate one of her kidneys due to Kate’s kidney failure.  Both Kate and Anna require major surgery, but it is not guaranteed to work, as the stress of the operation may kill Kate anyway, and the loss of a kidney could have a serious impact on Anna’s life.  Anna petitions for medical emancipation with the help of lawyer Campbell Alexander, so she will be able to make her own decisions regarding her medical treatment and donation of her kidney.

 

Nineteen Minutes -Author, Jodi Picoult

The story begins on March 6, 2007 in the small town of Sterling, New Hampshire.  At the local high school, Sterling High, the story follows a routine day of students in classes, at the gym, and in the cafeteria. Suddenly, a loud bang is heard from the parking lot, which turns out to be a bomb set off in Matt Royston’s car. As the students are distracted by the noise, gunshots are fired.  When Patrick, the only detective on the Sterling police force, arrives at Sterling High, he searches the school to seek out the gunman, who is alleged to be a student.  After passing several dead and wounded victims, Patrick traps and arrests the shooter, Peter Houghton, in the locker room, where he finds two students, Josie Cormier and Matt Royston, lying on the floor surrounded in blood.  While Matt is dead, having been the only victim shot twice, Josie does not have any serious injuries, but only in shock: she cannot remember what happened.  The shooting kills ten people (nine students and one teacher) and wounds many other people.

 

No Easy Target – Author, Iris Johansen

Margaret Douglas has worked hard to put her painful past behind her.   Raised off the grid in an abusive home, her only escape was the nearby forest where she sought refuge whenever she sought refuge whenever she could.  There, in the peaceful woods, she discovered a strange gift: the ability to understand animals and to communicate with them.  And so those creatures became her only friends, her only joy during a desolate childhood.  Now Margaret wants nothing more than to live a quiet life, close to the animals and under the radar. But her abilities have not gone unnoticed and there are those who would use them for their own purposes.  Determined not to be a pawn in anyone’s game, every time someone gets too close, Margaret uproots her life and outruns them.  When John Lassiter breaks into Margaret’s apartment, she vanishes again, but Lassiter has good reason to be persistent. As a CIA operative, he owes his life to his men, one of whom is being held captive by an unrelenting enemy-an enemy who has set his sights on Margaret.  Which means that Lassiter must control her to use her as bait.  With danger in hot pursuit, Margaret finds herself matching wits with a man who refuses to stop or be stopped. Turning from the hunted to the hunter, Margaret must use everything she has ever learned to not only survive, but to defeat a great evil.  An to prove once and for all that she’s no easy target.

 

HAPPY EVERYTHING! The Back Story of a Holiday

Have you ever wondered about the back story of a particular Holiday?    With the biggest Holiday Season now behind us, we are looking at the calendars to see what holidays are coming up next.   So mark you Calendars for these upcoming holidays and enjoy the Celebration.

 Martin Luther King was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement.  He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using the tactics of nonviolence and civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs and inspired by the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi.

While the custom of sending cards, flowers, chocolates and other gifts originated in the UK, Valentine’s Day still remains connected with various regional customs in England.  In Norfolk, a character called “Jack” Valentine knocks on the rear door of houses leaving sweets and presents for children.  Although he was leaving treats, many children were scared of this mystical person.

Washington’s Birthday is a United States federal holiday celebrated on the third Monday of February in honor of George Washington, the first President of the United States, who was born on February 22, 1732.  It can occur on the 15th through the 21st of February. The day is also now widely known as Presidents’ Day and is often an occasion to honor the incumbent president and all persons who have served as president.

Commonly referred to as daylight savings time in speech and known as summer time in some countries, is the practice of advancing clocks during summer months so that evening daylight lasts longer, while sacrificing normal sunrise times.  Typically, regions that use daylight saving time adjust clocks forward on hour close to the start of spring and adjust them backward in the autumn to standard time.  George Hudson proposed the idea of daylight saving in 1895.  The German Empire and Austria-Hungary organized the first nationwide implementation, starting on April 30, 1916.

Or  otherwise known as Feast of Saint Patrick is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 of March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick the foremost patron saint of Ireland. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general.  Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks.

Spring  and “springtime” refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth.  Spring is the time when many plants begin to grow and flower.  Spring is one of the four conventional temperate season, following winter and preceding summer.  At the Spring equinox, days are approximately 12 hours long with day length increasing as the season progresses.
