Rain & outdoor festivals just don't mix - Rain hits Allentown Fair & ArtsQuest both ...

    The Allentown Fair had a nice start but a soggy finish in 2011. The fair ended early because of the rainstorms. The overall week for the fair was a winner for fair goers and fair organizers both. The fair was forced to close 2 1/2 hours early Monday night. The estimates had the fair's overall attendance down about 50 to 60 thousand this year compared to 2010.

    Approximately 200 people or so were hardy enough to watch the final day’s concerts of ArtsQuest SteelJam festival on a very rainy Monday Labor Day. It was a wet close out to a 4-day festival in Bethlehem.

Lehigh Valley is starting to feel like Mt. Waialeale in Hawaii with ALL this rain ...

I know the wettest place in the USA is Mount Waialeale on the island of Kauai in Hawaii but it sure is feeling like it here in the valley with all this rain lately.

Sure, Mount Waialeale has averaged more than 460 inches of rain over the last 32 years and it had a record 683 inches back in 1982 but does anybody live on that mountain. Yes, the Mount Waialeale summit is considered one of the rainiest spots on earth but I am beginning to think that the Lehigh Valley is moving up to number two.

State workers 4-day work week experiment is over for this western state ..

    In 2008 former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman launched the "4 day / 10 hour workweek″ Monday through Thursday for thousands of state employees. The goal was to improve efficiency, reduce overhead costs and conserve energy. This was the first-in-the-nation four-day workweek for state workers. Well, its now over - history.

    Lawmakers in Utah have now scratched the experiment. They say that it has not saved as much money as hoped and residents were complaining about not having access to services on Fridays.

How many Hosts does it take to replace Jerry Lewis on Muscular Dystrophy Telethon? ..

The answer is 4.

Yes, MDA has assembled a group of 4 lightweights to work the grueling 6 hours. You have got to be kidding? Replacing Jerry Lewis are Nigel Lythgoe, Nancy O'Dell, Alison Sweeney, and Jann Carl. Hey MDA, I thought the idea was to raise money to fight the disease - like the Billions of Dollars that Jerry raised over 45 years.

The 46th Annual MDA Labor Day Telethon will be on the air just 6 hours. It will be on the air Sunday from 6 p.m. to midnight. YES, it will not be the grueling 21 1/2-hour endurance contest that Jerry Lewis did for 45 years. That is just one reason why Jerry Lewis the comedian, actor, movie star, singer, writer, producer, and director is a true Hollywood Legend.
