Living in the Lehigh Valley is wonderful – Just try not to breathe too much ..

    Some community leaders, land developers and various businesses love to promote the Lehigh Valley with an envious eye on new financial wealth but at what price. Well, the price too often is a lowering of the “Quality of Life” in the valley for all of us. With increased industrial development and population growth comes the other side of the coin – more traffic congestion, increased crime, higher cost of living and the latest negative result of this expansion - “poor air quality”.

    Yes, the American Lung Association has graded Lehigh and Northampton counties with a grade of “F” in air quality. The measure of soot pollution is the cause for the “F” grade. It seems that the residents of the Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton area are breathing unhealthy levels of ozone and particle pollution. We now have the distinction of being the 3rd. worst metropolitan area in Pennsylvania behind Philadelphia and Pittsburg.

    So next time you read a story in the newspaper about a new company moving its operations to the area or a new shopping mall being built stop for a moment and think about the downside, how it impacts you and your family and who is making money off of this expansion.

"Staycation" or "Stay-cation" however you spell it - will be more popular this Summer ...

    A "staycation", also spelled "stay-cation", is a relatively new term for the period of time in which an individual or family stays at home and relaxes. The term also describes international travelers who may decide to vacation in their own country and take day trips to area attractions. Staycations really became popular in the United States during the recent financial crisis years.

    So with the continued poor economy and the rise in gasoline prices it seems likely that many people will discover the appeal of a staycation. One great idea is to take a bus trip and get away.....

Bus Trips and Charter Tours
    Bus companies in the lehigh valley and surrounding area offer some great day trips and charter tours to exciting cities and locations in the northeast. Take a trip to Baltimore's Inner Harbor, or travel to Washington DC our beautiful capital. You might want to take a trip to the "Big Apple", New York City to take in a Broadway show or perhaps the Christmas show at Radio City. Take a trip to lower Manhattan and tour the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The kids would enjoy a bus trip to the Philadelphia Zoo and Adventure Aquarium.

Pain at the Gas Pump – Are you thinking Economy Car yet ?

    The American consumer is so reactionary. Gasoline prices are really rising again and guess what else is rising. You got it – interest in fuel-efficient cars. Some recent national online surveys have revealed that approximately 60% of automobile shoppers would seriously consider buying a more fuel-efficient car. The average price of self-service regular unleaded gas is around $3.80, which is about .95 cents higher than a year ago.

On May 2008, Jacy and her parents were driving home after her graduation from Muhlenberg College in Allentown. It was a route that they had driven countless times during Jacy’s four years there. On this day, however, the Good family was in an accident caused by a distracted driver that resulted in a head on collision with a tractor trailer. Jacy’s parents were killed and Jacy was severely injured. Jacy has also shared her important message on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

Tax the "Rich" - Don't worry about Spending too much ...

    Based on the Forbes report released in March 2011, the United States has 413 billionaires with a total net worth of $1,500 billion.

    If you liquated and confiscated every single dollor from every one of the 413 billionaires in America you would get $1.5 trillion dollars. That’s not taxing them – that’s totally confiscating ALL their wealth.

    Now Compare that amount to America’s $14.3 trillion dollar debt and you see how ridiculous the argument is that “If only we tax the ‘Rich’ more our debt problems would improve greatly”.

    While more tax dollars would fractionally help, the real problem is spending trillions more than we take in through revenue from taxes. So since we can't tax our way to revenue & spending parity, I guess we'll have to rein in spending.

    Remember the big deal that the Democrats & Republicans made about saving $38 Billion in budget cuts. These politicans are not serious in controlling spending. Standard & Poor's just recently downgraded the outlook for the United States to negative.

    Can you spend 14 times you income in your household without going bankrupt ?

    Forget about the Future burden on our kids and grandchildren. At the current rate of spending WE are going to experience the financial collapse in America from this debt, not our kids – just kiss your money goodbye.

Who really wants "LOW Gas Prices" for you and me? Think about this …

    1st. - a Federal Tax of 18.4 cents per gallon is collected in all states in addition to any state or local taxes on gasoline sales. That’s your Federal, state and local officials taking your hard earned money right at the pump. I am sure that the government will spend our money wisely.

    2nd. - The “inflated cost” for a barrel of oil from the Middle East, which in turn “inflates” the cost of gasoline at the pump, is nothing less than a “Added Tax” on each an every American’s income. If the “cost is inflated” then that means it is an “added cost” over-and-above what the cost should be – I call that an “added tax”.

    3rd. - Every commodity on the plant is affected by “Supply” and “Demand”. Supply and demand is perhaps one of the most fundamental concepts of economics and it is the backbone of any market economy.

Price is a reflection of supply and demand. If demand for gasoline for example exceeds supply then the Price of gas goes UP. If the supply of gasoline exceeds the demand ( a glut of gas )then the Price of gas will go Down.

Now with these supply and demand principles in mind let me ask you a few simple question.

- Why are we then not producing all the gasoline (Supply) that we can in America?

- Why is our government still preventing drilling from resuming in the Gulf after all the oil rigs have been certified safe? Did you know that Seven ( 7 ) oil drilling plateforms in the Gulf have left and gone to Brazil. (This reduces our Supply)

- Why is our government preventing more offshore oil development? (Again Reducing our Supply)

- Why in general then is our government preventing America from increasing its oil (Gasoline Supply)?

You tell me – Who is really looking out for you and me at the gas pump?

Did you see this …. a Date has been set for the “End of America”

    The IMF better know as the International Monetary Fund has forecast that
the end of the “Age of America,” will happen in 2016. Yes, the IMF predicts that China’s economy will overtake and surpass the United States in 2016. The reason that they believe this will happen is because of America’s inability to get its fiscal house in order.

   I don’t know – do you think it’s that little pesky problem of the $14 Trillion dollar debt that we have ? No, it can’t be that. What’s wrong with the government “spending” $14 Trillion dollars more then the “revenue” that they take in.

Fed Chairman Bernanke believes Inflation is not a big deal - I guess he doesn't drive a car or shop for food ..

    For months now, FED chairman Bernanke and his supporters have downplayed the recent increase in U.S. inflation. He said that overall consumer price increases reflected spikes in oil and other commodities that were unlikely to last.

    Bernanke and the Fed officials when commenting on the subdued rise in inflation prefer to look at the so-called "Core Inflation", which excludes Energy and Food Prices.

    Now that really makes good sense - exclude Gas & Food - the two most necessary commodities that every American needs every single day and then determine the inflation index and tell Americans that "Inflation is not that bad".

    He obviously things we are the dumbest people on the planet or maybe, just perhaps he is not the right economist for the job of Federal Reserve Chairman ?

What are the biggest Dangers to your Pet this summer ?

    On warm summer days the temperature inside a parked car can reach up to 120 degrees in minutes, even if a window is open slightly. If you leave your dog or cat in the car while you run some errands, you are putting your pet at risk of potential brain damage or heatstroke.

    Hot cars are just one danger animals face when the weather gets warm. Certain animals, just like humans, are prone to sunburn and skin cancer. The Humane Society of the United States advises that pets with light-colored noses or light-colored fur on their ears should have those parts protected with sunscreen in order to keep them safe.

Does your Pet need to lose weight ?

Many pets are above their ideal weight and the majority of research shows that being overweight can shorten the lives of our precious pets.

The causes of weight gain can be overfeeding, feeding too many table scraps and treats, lack of exercise, and age (older, less active pets are prone to weight gain).

Weight loss will improve your pet’s appearance and health as well as his enjoyment and length of life:

• Feed a low-calorie high-fiber food formulated for weight reduction.
• Divide the total amount of food to be fed each day into 3 or 4 smaller meals.
• Exercise your pet regularly if recommended by your veterinarian.

*** Always check with your Veterinarian about feeding and weight control for your pet.

Attention ALL Shoppers - More price increases on some products that Every one of us use - I mean Every one...

    Procter & Gamble Co. reported on Monday, April 25, 2011, that it raised U.S. list prices for Pampers diapers, Charmin toilet paper and Bounty paper towels. The product increases were necessary due to rising costs for pulp, oil and gas.

    The Cincinnati-based consumer products maker informed retailers of increases last week. Retailers throughout the country will have to decide how much of the price increases to pass along to the consumer.

    P&G said list prices for Pampers are up 7 % on average, Pampers are up 3 %, and Charmin and Bounty products are up 5 %. P&G said that the price for Luvs, which is a lower-priced diaper brand, would remain unchanged.

    More bad news for consumers was reported by paper products rival Kimberly-Clark Corp. who said on Monday that it will also raise prices, after reporting a first-quarter net income decrease of 9 % due to rising costs.

What are Crabfries? Are they Crabs? Are they Fries? What are they – Dorney Park knows ...

    Dorney Park will be the first location in the Lehigh Valley for the Philadelphia crab house and sports bar and its famous Crabfries. I have had had them several times and they are great.

    This weekend Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom will open and introduce the Lehigh Valley to 2 Chickie's & Pete's locations inside their theme park.

    Across from the Sea Dragon ride in the center of the park you will be able to sit in a covered area of approximately 100 seats and enjoy a select menu, including Crabfries, cheese steaks, fried shrimp and beer. At another location near the whirlpool in Wildwater Kingdom you will be able to get Crabfries and chicken cutlets.

    Now to the answer to the question - What are Crabfries? Chickie's & Pete's Crabfries are scallop-cut french fries seasoned with seafood spices and served with a secret white three-blend cheese sauce. And boy they are good. But I already said that.

    Chickie's & Pete's is a 30-year-old Philadelphia brand, which includes the original at Robbins Ave, south Philadelphia, Bordentown, Egg Harbor, Parx Casino, Philadelphia International Airport, Roosevelt Blvd, at the shore boardwalks and amusement parks.

General Motors ready to reclaim the title of “World's Largest Automaker” from Toyota

    Toyota Motor Corp. is about to lose its position as the world's top-selling automaker Toyota reported a wooping 62 % drop in production in Japan in March 2011. We all know the reasons why - parts supply crunch following the earthquake and tsunami.

    Toyota report that its domestic production in March 2011 was approximately 129,400 vehicles. That number of vehicles is the lowest since 1976, when Toyota first began maintaining production figures.

   In 2010, Toyota led world automakers with sales of 8.4 million vehicles. The bad March numbers means that General Motors should be able to reclaim the title of “World's Largest Automaker” again. GM lost that distinsion to Toyota in 2008. Toyota reported that it would not get its global car production back to normal until November or December 2011.

   Toyota's global production in March dropped 30 % year-on-year to approximately 542,400 vehicles, while its sales in Japan tumbled 45 % for the month. Other automakers in Japan did not do very well either in March.

   Honda Motor Co. reported its domestic production in March plunged 63 % with worldwide production falling 19%. Nissan Motor Co. reported production in Japan droping 52%.

Bed and Breakfast getaways - Shop the World's Largest Selection of B&B's

Bed and Breakfast Suggestions
• When planning to stay at a B&B it is almost essential to make reservations ahead. This is especially important on weekends and holidays.

• The time you call for the reservation is the best time to make your travel needs, accommodation interests and breakfast desires clear. Allergies to down pillows, a need for extra blankets, or beds for very tall people should be discussed at that time. Inform your host or reservation service of specific health problems, concerns about stairs or special dietary needs.

• It’s a good idea to ask your hosts in advance for sightseeing ideas, restaurants etc. They are usually aware of the best around! Let them know the types of hobbies, sports, or food you enjoy, and you’ll be surprised how helpful a host can be!

   The Philadelphia Phillies have one of the most devoted fan bases in baseball. On April 20, 2011 the Phillies recorded the 147th. consecutive sellout overall. The Phillies right now have the best attendance record in baseball by a nice margin.

    According to ESPN, the Phillies and Yankees have drawn over 50,000 home fans more than any other teams in baseball. Philadelphia however has an edge over the Yankees in average attendance, since the Yankees have not sold out all of their games. Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park has over 45,400 fans a night, while Yankee Stadium only gets over 41,600.

Travel Tip - Luggage Indentification made easy - Spot your bag, get it & start your vacation

    Forget the ribbons or tape around the handles of your luggage, many other people have the same idea. Let's face it ribbons and tape are hard to pick out. Here is an identification tip I would like you to try. It has worked wonderfully for us on many trips. Purchased a stencil and a small can of stencil paint from your local hardware store and stencil every piece of your luggage with the same design. On our last cruise, our luggage stood out from all the others. The chance that anyone else will have the exact same design in the exact same colors is very remote.

Is anyone up for a New Hiking Trial – How about Manhattan ? …

Is anyone up for a New Hiking Trial – How about Manhattan Island ? …

Yes that’s right – a relatively new hiking trial on Manhattan Island. A few years back there was this elevated railway in the old Meatpacking district on the island. Well those crafty New Yorker’s turned it into a park. The trail runs for approximately 1 ½ miles from Gansevoort street to to West 34th Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues. The “High Line” offers great views of the Hudson River ship traffic, New Jersey and the Chelsea district with its boutiques, galleries and wonderful cafes. You really must walk the plank walkways through the lush greenery in the Washington Grasslands of the park.

You can best access “High Line” via any of these entrances:
· Gansevoort Street
· 14th Street (elevator access)
· 16th Street (elevator access)
· 18th Street
· 20th Street

U.S. reserves of natural gas are now estimated at 2,074 trillion cubic feet, the energy equivalent of 345 billion barrels of oil

    Methanol, processed from natural gas, is an alcohol, much like ethanol. Methanol unlike ethanol needs no extensive lands for cultivation, no distillation, no transportation and is far more environmentally friendly. Any car that can burn gasoline with 15 % ethanol can burn gasoline with 15 % methanol.

    So why don't we using Methanol and become more energy independent from imported oil. The answer is lobbyists - the farm lobby has successfully blocked methanol from the markets for decades by lobbying both Democrats and Republicans.

    Methanol has been field tested with studies on California highways conducted over a period of 25 years and 200 million miles and has proven its superiority over ethanol on the road. Even today 60 service stations in California still supply methanol to satisfied customers. Why haven't we heard about Methanol superiority over ethanol from Washington DC and the national news media.

    The Methanol story gets even better. Methanol can substitute for ethanol, because it has the same characteristics. Distribution of Methanol costs less because there is a network of natural gas pipelines already servicing most of the United States. Conversion plants can generate methanol close to local markets at half the price of ethanol’s transportation as well.

    Large reserves of the U.S. shale gas means that we can expect a 100-year supply of cheaper fuel. U.S. reserves of natural gas are now estimated at 2,074 trillion cubic feet, the energy equivalent of 345 billion barrels of oil. That is more than 10 times our current petroleum reserves.

So next time the political candidates tell you they want America to be energy independent ask them why we aren't aggressively switching to Methanol not ethanol

McDonald's 1st National Hiring Day – Economic Boost or PR stunt?

    McDonald's, the world's largest hamburger chain held its 1st “National Hiring Day” on Tuesday April 19. The result was a strong showing of job seekers. Thousands of applicants showed up at restaurants nationwide to apply for jobs. The company planed on hiring 50,000 new workers in one day, and boost its staff by about 7 %.

    McDonald's publicized the event as a boost to an economy where more than 13 million Americans are looking for work. Some industry experts believed that McDonald's also needed to enhance its image as an employer. Some of those pesky industry experts can be so suspicious.

    McDonald's and other fast-food chains were once considered an entry point into the work force for teenagers. Now they appear to be turning into an employer of more adults due in part to the recession. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average age of a fast-food worker is approximately 29 yrs old, up from 22 in 2000.

    McDonald's did not specify what proportion of the 50,000 new jobs would be full-time, or what they would pay. About 90 % of McDonald's restaurants are owned by franchisees. McDonald’s does not control what franchisees offer in wages or benefits. Most McDonald’s franchisees pay more than minimum wage, which currently is $7.25-an-hour nationally.

    McDonald's said that about 75 % of employees at company-owned restaurants are part-time, averaging 18 hours a week. Restaurant employees tend to stay on average 17 months. Salaried managers for company-owned restaurants can make approximately $32,000 to $50,000 annually.

    Although the 50,000 jobs for the 1st “National Hiring Day” are new jobs, McDonald's usually staffs up for summer season anyway, and it's constantly gaining and losing employees. It added 50,000 new workers in April last year without a “National Hiring Day”.

FAA air traffic controller watches movie while working - Is it time to clean house ?...

    An air traffic controller has been suspended for watching a movie when he was supposed to be monitoring aircraft. More embarrassment for the Federal Aviation Administration following at least 5 cases of controllers sleeping on the job.

    In this latest incident, the controller was watching a movie on a DVD player early Sunday morning while on duty at a regional radar center in Oberlin, Ohio, near Cleveland. In all, the FAA has suspended 9 controllers and supervisors since late March. Nearly all the incidents occurred during overnight shifts when traffic is light and people naturally have trouble staying awake.

      1. Many People travel at night ... tell them that traffic is light so the air traffic controllers do not need to be as alert.
      2. Did you ever work "night shift"? I did, you still have to put in your 8 hrs, and you do not earn extra "sleep time" just because it's dark outside.

    Top officials from the FAA the air traffic controllers' union just kicked off a cross-country tour of air traffic control facilities on Monday.

      1. Maybe instead of a "tour of facilities" the general public would be better served with resignations of top officials and firings in the union.

      2. With Unemployment still at record highs and the many very qualified people looking for work perhaps our "Wasteful Congress" (Democrats & Republicans alike) can us some of that "stimulus pork project money" to hire and train people willing to work, do their job and Oh yes, stay awake in the process.
