Hello World

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Hello World .  After some difficulty in setting up this site I’m now beginning my first blog.   This week is one of preparing my syllabus for Cornerstones of Sustainability which I begin teaching at Penn State Great Valley Sept. 1.    I’m also preparing to go on the Rising Nation River Journey on the Delaware River with the Lenape Nation on Sat. July 31.  Stay tuned for updates.

Morning Bike Ride

Saturday, July 24th, 2010

This morning, knowing it would be close to 100 degrees later in the day, I headed for the Perkiomen Bike Trail, a beautiful trail that goes mostly alongside the Perkiomen Creek through wooded areas.    I started  toward Schwenksville about ten miles up the Creek, and went non stop until I reached a small restaurant in town.  There I paused for a blueberry pancake breakfast and began reading the book Slow Money by my friend Woody Tasch.   After a restful break I returned to the trail noticing a possible launch site for my kayak.     Soon I’ll take the water route for  a different view!
