I can see the Landfill from my front door. On a good day? I can smell it too.
The Waste Management Landfill or ‘dirty diaper mountain’, as my kids refer to it, is growing daily.
My family enjoys summers at the Penn Warner Club, where we fish and camp in warmer months. In recent years we have found these activities less enjoyable as the air in Tullytown is thick and uneasy to breathe. All thanks to the Waste Management Landfill.

One lucky person will win this prize valued at $353.00. A perfect way to start the holiday season.
Last year, My Express Oil awarded the prize to three recipients. Bobbi Velez from Croydon recalls winning last year’s contest, “It’s was great, we were out of oil and it was perfect timing. We didn’t have the money at that time to purchase fuel.”Velez explained that she lives on a social security check, once a month, and it was not due to arrive for another week. The 100 gallons of FREE oil, really saved us!”

As Community Manager for Levittown Comfort, I am proud to be a part of a bigger network at Mingl Social-providing social media for small businesses. Mingl Social is comprised of a network of small, local businesses engaging and interacting on various social media channels.
Their latest venture with Streamline Payroll allows small businesses to meet in real time and enjoy a fun, relaxed Friday night event they call Celebrity Business Bartender Networking Happy Hour. Each week, a different business has a turn at bartending, collecting “tips” for their chosen charity, and raffling off their company swag as door prizes. The first happy hour was sponsored my myexpressoil.com. and this week’s sponsor was Streamline Payroll.
The week leading up to the event is surrounded by social media buzz, press releases and loads of local hype. The blog post, following the event is shared on varying websites, blogs, and social media pages. Along with pictures, captions, and comments on the good time had by all.
We all know that picture taking at parties and outings has changed thanks to Facebook.Once you are photographed, you are sure to be tagged. Imagine having your business tagged in every photo and shared across many channels. It’s a revolutionary way of marketing.

Snow days off from school are always a welcome treat.
Who can resist an unexpected day off from the daily routine, completely stuck in the house?
It’s the perfect excuse to stay in pajamas, build a fire, bake cookies, and prepare a home cooked meal.
I enjoy snow days so much more now that my kids are able to climb into snow gear, gloves, hats, boots all on their own. They even know how to take it all off by themselves. I stand in the doorway, wait for the basket to be filled with wet clothes, and cart them all off to the dryer, to get them nice and toasty for their next venture out into the blizzard. It’s a small price to pay for an hour of quiet as they play in the snow covered yard.
I have fond memories of snow days back in the 70′s: lying in bed, listening to he crackle of WBCB, patiently waiting for our school to be announced as closed for the day. We would wait as they announced the name of every school, knowing ours would be next, excited that we could roll over and go back to sleep, yet we never did- as we were so excited to have a day off, to play outside in the white stuff.
Now, school closing alerts can be text-ed direct to parents cell phones, or found scrolling underneath the morning news, even accessed on a school website.
It’s just not the same.
But the excited feeling, of having an entire day to build igloos, and eat icicles ,it’s exactly the same as I remember.
And? even nicer viewed from a warm house.
That was exactly what my children envisioned yesterday, after predictions of 2 to 4 inches of snow filled their heads. Yet, much to their surprise, they awoke Thursday morning to business as usual. No snow day, no day off. Off to school you go.
They’ve got some nerve. After 5 unexpected Hurricane days, the last thing they needed was to stay home again!
