Thumbs Down

To the couple in the sports car at the fast food restaurant in Quakertown on September 1. I accidentally hit your car door when I lost my grip on my door. You should be embarrassed by the way you immediately reacted, including cursing in front of my 16 year old daughter, for something that was clearly an accident. I should have called the police. People like you make me lose faith in humanity. 

Thumbs Up

I want to personally thank the person that found and returned my chain bracelet on Friday September 9th at Applebee’s in Quakertown. It meant a lot. Happy to see there are still honest and kind people around. Bless you!

Thumbs Up

A big thank you to the nice young man who drove his truck across the highway to stop my runaway rollator. He was kind enough to bring it back to me in my driveway. I am on oxygen and have trouble walking, so there was no way I could have retrieved it. It is good to know that we still have nice people in this world. God bless.  

 

 

 

Thumbs Down

We have a hoarder living in our community. He has trash bins, but in the years he has lived there they have never been out by the curb for pick up. You can see in the one window of the house, that isn’t covered up, that it is full of boxes, bags and who knows what. Complaints to the township were fruitless with them saying they can’t do anything unless it becomes a problem on the outside of the house. Keep in mind there are 8 foot tall weeds in the front flower bed but they don’t see that as a problem. 

Thumbs Up

To KC and JK who surprised my husband and I at a Telford pizza restaurant by paying for our dinner. That was so very sweet of you!

Thumbs Down

To the people that litter along the rail trail. This includes dog poop bags. Take your trash with you or dispose of it properly. 

Thumbs Down

To me for losing my temper. I apologize to the woman that cut me off by Aldi’s in Quakertown the previous Wednesday. There was no need for me to shout an obscenity at you. Your turn signal was on and you started to turn but changed your mind, right in front of me. You were wrong but I was more so. That outburst was uncalled for, rude, and hurtful. Again, I am sorry for it. I promise I will be a better person in the future. 

Thumbs Up

Thank you to the kind, honest person who turned in my wallet at Walmart. I was in a dead panic trying to retrace my steps. My whole life stuff was in there. It was all returned (plus gift cards inside). You were an angel and my savior that day!

The Officers and Members of the Dublin Volunteer Fire Company would like to express our thanks for the community’s support for our recent Fire Company Fair and Annual Drive. 

Thumbs Up

To the Good Samaritan who found my phone on Route 309 and took it to my father’s assisted living facility in Quakertown. I don’t know who you are, but you are an angel! Your actions helped me to retrieve my mother’s last voice message (she passed away in July). Thank you!

Thumbs Down

To the owners of a black cat that roams around Farmers Lane, Sellersville. Please keep it at home.

Coopersburg Historical Society would like to thank everyone who visited our yard sale and museum Open House on July 30. We met many new friends and enjoyed talking to all of you. It was fun to learn new stories about our history. Thank you also to Penny Power for printing the ads for this and our other events!

Thumbs Up

Thanks to the kind folks who stopped along Oakhurst Drive last Friday when I got my feet tangled in the English ivy vines and could not get up after trying to pull weeds and fell.

Thumbs Down

To the driver of the SUV on Tollgate Road on August 4th who had to pass a biker, giving only 2 inches. Your side mirror almost hit me and almost ran me into a ditch. Please share the road. You scared the heck out of me.

To the gentleman who paid for mine and my mother’s breakfasts at JP’s Diner on August 4. Thank you!

Thumbs Up

I would like to give a huge “Thumbs-Up” to all of the First Responders, Firefighters, Police, EMT’s, Paramedics and anyone else who has a connection with an emergency situation. To all of you that brave all sorts of weather to help put out fires, rescue people trapped in their vehicle or rush to someone’s home to give them medical attention I am so very grateful. You are out in the pouring rain, freezing cold, and now in high heat and humid temps doing your job. Most of you are paid but some of you (firefighters) are volunteers. The dedication you give to the community is appreciated beyond measure.

Thumbs Up

To Drew and Chris
at Redner’s for taking my water
and groceries to my car
during my recovery from cancer
and never taking a tip.
Thank you,
Sheila

Thumbs Down

To the teenager
who drove 65MPH
on State Road in Sellersville
at 5:30am on Monday.
You nearly caused two
accidents.
First one you cut me off
when you were too close and
second you nearly rear
ended someone else
in front of you.
There’s no need
for that behavior.
Slow down!

Thumbs Up

To the person
who found my Ford car keys
on your front lawn
(near 113 & Callowhill Road).
Thank you so much.
I have been looking
for them at work and home.
Your kindness shows there’s still
some good people around.

 

 

Thumbs Down

To the person who disparaged the
“Thank you’s for buying a meal”.
ln my opinion your attitude
ls one of the reasons our
world is in it’s current downfall.
What is wrong with kindness?
Charity? Loving others?
What a thing to complain about!
I think you could
use some TLC yourself.
Let me know how we can
make your world a brighter place.

Thumbs Down

To the person who
put a Thumbs Down to people
thanking people for paying
for their meals.
I don’t believe anyone is begging
for a free meal.
People do this out of the
kindness of their hearts.
Something you obviously don’t have.
We can never have to much
kindness in this world!
You should try being kind
“just because” sometime.

Thumbs Down

Thumbs Down to me
for my rude and reactive
behavior on July 1gth.
I got upset with a woman
in a supermarket parking lot
in Perkasie. I reacted inappropriately,
yelling at her from my car and
getting into a loud argument with her.
My behavior was unnecessary.
I handled the situation badly.
This isn’t how I act or
who I want to be.
l’m really sorry to this woman
and anyone else who might
have overheard us.

Thumbs Up

To the fisherman
at Lake Nockamixon
on the evening of July 15,
for saving our daughter
from drowning when she
fell off her paddle board.
We are sorry we didn’t get
your name. Thank you
and many blessings
to you and your family,
for using your boat to
go save her.

Thumbs Down

To the person who doesn’t understand
why someone would thank someone
for paying for their meal.
Um, what?
As someone who has been out
to eat with my family
(with every intention of paying)
and went to pay, only to be surprised
by the waitress saying someone
already covered my bill.
I have to say I’m confused by your
Thumbs Down.
It’s an ovenruhelming feeling
that someone would be so generous.
I have also been one to pay
for the person behind me
in a drive-through.
It isn’t that I think they are in the
drive through with
no intention of paying for themselves
(because why would anyone do that),
it’s paying it forward for acts of
kindness I have experienced myself.
I can’t believe that
I have to explain this to someone.
When a stranger
(or someone you know)
randomly pays for your meal while you
were out, they are being friendly
and are probably not even
doing it for a thank you
(most try to remain anonymous),
but you want to be able to thank
someone, so some people go to the
Penny Power.
Then, possibly, the stranger can know
what their generosity meant to them
and was appreciated.
Does that clear it up for you?

Thumbs Down

Thank you to the nice lady
who paid for me and my
great granddaughte/s lunch,
at Bang Bang Hibachi
in Quakertown.
God bless you.

Thumbs Down

To the
inconsiderate dirtbag
who found my debit card
and decided to go on a
spending spree instead of returning
it to my bank.

Thumbs Down

To the person or persons
that stole my emergency gear
toolboxes from my boat.
You stole my ability
to help other boaters.
Please return the toolboxes intact.
No one’s backyard is
safe anymore!

Thumbs Up

Big Thumbs Down
to the very insensitive person
complaining about generous people
paying for someone’s meal.
It’s nice to see some people
have a good heart,
unlike this Scrooge.

July 20th, 2022

 

Thumbs Down

To the people who thank others for buying their meal at a restaurant. Are the people standing outside with their tongues out begging for a free meal? If you go out to eat have money to pay for it. Next thing I will read is someone thanking someone for buying their gas. 

Thumbs Up

Thank you to our friends and neighbors for their continued support of Sellersville Fire Department activities. We had a successful carnival and look forward to seeing you all next year!

Thumbs Down

To the person who stole my purple leaf begonia from under my red maple tree. Lower Saucon area. Missing about a week ago. Please return it, no questions asked. 

Thumbs Down

To the person(s) who stole fishing rods and a table from the children’s fishing pond at Nockamixon State Park, on June 11 after a free children’s fishing tournament sponsored by Friends of Nockamixon State Park. Shame on you! Stealing is never acceptable!

Thumbs Up

To the nice young lady and her daughter sitting next to me at The Coop on Friday, June 24th. When the waiter told me you paid for my dinner I was stunned! Thank you so much from the old man with the beard. I’ll pay it forward!

June 22nd, 2022

 

Thumbs Up

Thank you to the nice gentleman in a black SUV who gave me 10 gallons of gas at a Souderton gas station on May 30th. Unbelievable!

Thumbs Down

To the dog owners who fail to pick up their dogs’ waste at Southern Lehigh Living Memorial Park. You must bring your own bags. Don’t ruin it for others.

Thumbs Up

A very large “Thumbs Up” to the man who helped a lady on April 26th at 3pm in Quakertown. She was walking out of a store, tripped and fell half way onto the road. As luck would have it, the man behind her was able to help her up, pick up her groceries which were on the ground, and walked with her to her car. 

Thumbs Down

To the person who mentioned a former employee’s name and the fact that she did not get the shot, so she was fired and now she will collect unemployment for the summer. This was not a private conversation and mentioned in front of another customer. It is not really this employee’s business to be talking about other former employees and telling customers about their personal choices. 

Thumbs Down

To the people who mow their lawns and blow the grass into the streets. Sometimes it is in very big globs and that does get washed into the sewer drains when it rains. Please take care of the mess you make.

 

 

Thumbs Up

Thumbs up to all the civic minded individuals, to the right and the left, democrat and republican, other parties, too, of all walks of life, who took the time to get involved in the primary election process. Now hat the primary is over, I’m looking forward to the roadside signs being promptly removed so all of us can appreciate this beautiful scenery our community has to offer. 

Thumbs Down

To the business that allows their staff to wear politically motivated clothing to serve the public. 

May 18th, 2022

 

Thumbs Up

To the Springfield Township Environmental Advisory council for all they do to make our community a better place to live. 

Thumbs Up

Thanks to the whole crew at Upper Saucon Fire Department for serving 18,000 people in Upper Saucon Township, day and night, rain or shine. It’s easy to forget the department are all volunteers responding 24 hours a day. As the expression goes “Easier said than done isn’t being said by the people getting it done!” I’m too old to volunteer now but I wish did when I younger.  John Lennon was right… life happens when you’re busy making other plans.

To the Quakertown students of the Varsity Football Team and Honor Society who volunteered to help set up and take down for the Quakertown Business Professional Women’s Paddle Raffle. You were a tremendous help! Thanks!

Thumbs Down

This week I noticed four flea markets and craft shows all being held on the same date- June 4th! I set up for one. Is it reasonable to ask why organizers can’t connect with each other to stagger dates? I doubt if customers will attend all our!

Thumbs Down

Pet peeves on drivers (How to cause an accident) Not turning on headlights at dawn and dusk and when it’s raining. Turning right when opposing traffic has a green left turn arrow. Yours is red! Riding my bumper when I don’t go over the speed limit. Richland Pike is not a speedway, it’s a rural road! With farms! Speed is 45MPH. Speeding in shopping centers and cutting drivers off at fast food lines. Signed: A Defensive Driver. 

Thumbs Up

To those responsible for fixing the many pot holes on Richlandtown Pike. Great job! Kudos!

Thumbs Down

To the person who stole my brother’s wallet when he passed away. Karma will bite you back one day!

Thumbs Down

To people who move to the woods and cut down trees to grow grass for horses. Before you buy a home, educate yourself about zoning! Resource protection has specific rules to follow regarding clear cutting. Protect the mere woods PA has left. Protect resource protection zoned properties and endangered flora and fauna.

Thumbs Up

To Sandy from Richlandtown for cleaning up the wooded area behind Giant on Mill Street over Easter weekend.
Mother Earth appreciates you!

Thumbs Up

To the kind gentleman who changed my tire at Wells Fargo Bank in Quakertown on a cold and rainy day.

April 20th, 2022

Thumbs Down

To the residents of Coopersburg who park their cars in front of other people’s houses. You are inconsiderate and ignorant. Park in front of your own house or move.

April 6th, 2022

Thumbs Up

To our Doug Tallamy disciples and the spring sprouts of their labors to transform their gardens with native plants to restore our native pollinators.

Thumbs Down

To the intersection of Chestnut Hill and Allentown Roads. You can hardly see cars coming when pulling out and I’ve seen one accident plus two vehicles get stuck in the ditch. Something must be done!

Thumbs Up

To all those who keep on keepin’ on. Always have love in your heart.

Thumbs Down

To those responsible for the upkeep of the dog park. How many times do we, as citizens of Perkasie, have to reach out for help with our dog park. It’s a mess to get in the big or small parks. We have to walk through mud and water. Shoes, clothing and dogs get full of mud. It is so bad many times the big dogs have to use the small dog side. All we get from you is “We are working on it”. All we ask is that you put mulch down so we can walk. All we hear is the trucks can’t get in, they will sink. Did you ever hear of a Bobcat? Why don’t you pick a day between 3pm and 3:30pm and our committee will meet with yours so we can solve this problem. Sincerely, Michael S. Crispino

Thumbs Up

To the gentleman who bought this 80+ year old a butterscotch sundae on Free Cone Day at DQ. I thank you! You made my day!

Thumbs Up

To the people at the traffic light at Front & Broad Streets who move over to the left far enough so that anyone that wants to make a right on red can. It does help to reduce some of the traffic build up, especially on the weekend. The light time being reduced has caused that problem.

Thumbs Up

To Quakertown Masonic Lodge #512 for giving the homeless a warm place to sleep with a meal during the colder months. It would be nice if other organizations would help by taking turns hosting different nights.

March 23rd, 2022

 

Thumbs Up

To all the people advocating for funding our public libraries. People turn to libraries for free access to information, entertainment, and welcoming community spaces. Internet access is a vital resource, but could never replace everything libraries offer.

Thank you Penny Power! Two-toned blue/yellow masthead shout out for Ukraine! Stolat Ukraine!

Thumbs Up

My sincere thank you to the gentleman at the local grocery store last week for acknowledging my service in the military during the mid-1940’s. Paying for my bill was a kind and generous gesture. This deed was a surprise
and reluctantly accepted. This gift was not only an honor to me, but received in awareness of your gratitude to all the other men and women who served our country. God bless you. A WWII Veteran

Thumbs Down

To the people who tie out their dog numerous times daily and allow him to bark non-stop! Please be considerate. The whole block is tired of listening to your yappy dog!

Thumbs Down

To all the people fighting and getting so upset about libraries getting funding. Does anyone even use the library anymore? Everything available at those libraries you can get on the internet. How about using the money for free internet instead?

Thumbs Up

A big shout out to the lady walking her child on 3rd & Callowhill Streets in Perkasie. Thank you for selflessly disposing of the multiple blue bags of doggie poop that had accumulated all over the bushes which were regularly thrown there by some uncaring person. The citizens of Perkasie applaud you!

Thumbs Up

To the young man who stopped and stayed with my 14-year old son while his father was having a seizure in front of Menlo Park on Saturday night, January 29th. He and I both appreciated you staying with him until the police arrived so he wasn’t alone. Very scary for a child to see and you were the only one who stopped as he waved for help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Thumbs Down

I cannot believe someone could be so naive to think a dumpster diver the last day of garbage pick-up before Christmas at 5am would think these people were picking up gifts for their ”precious children”. Get real! They were stealing money left for the collection people! They deserve extra at Christmas for their service. This has happened in my area, too.

January 26th, 2022

Thumbs Up

To the teachers in our school districts along with all employees in our schools. Your dedication to the children is greatly appreciated. With the different changes in our world these are the days when children need attention. These should be the best years of their lives.

Thumbs Up

To the young couple whom I met briefly in White Orchids Thai Restaurant in Center Valley. You made January 20th an early Valentine’s Day! Cupid was in rare form. They paid for my entire meal. What a truly fantastic couple you are! Thank you so much. I do promise to return your kindness by also being a Cupid and buying someone else a meal to make an average day a love-filled Valentine’s Day.

Thumbs Up

To everyone who takes pride in their job and does that little bit extra- especially those who work with the public this time of year!

Thumbs Up

To the kind and generous couple who paid for my dinner at Dan’s BBQ at Allentown Fairgrounds Market in late December. I was so totally overwhelmed by their thoughtfulness that I was speechless. Have a blessed 2022.

Thumbs Down

To the people that are being critical about the person who you are calling the Christmas Grinch. That person knew what those people were looking for under trash can lids- Cash. Not clothes or food for their children. That’s how people tip their trash collectors for Christmas, tape it on the underside of the lid. That’s what I did until it was stolen one year. Now I send it to the company with the drivers’ names on it. So before you are critical, learn the facts. There are thieves out there that will even steal at Christmas. Even if they are poor they should not be stealing.

January 19th, 2022

 

Thumbs Up

I had a lot on my mind last week and I absent-mindedly walked off from Walmart leaving my purse in the cart, realizing it when I got back to my car and went for my keys. I ran back into the store to Customer Service and thankfully, there was my purse behind the counter. A big, grateful ”Thumbs Up” to the honorable person who found it and turned it in totally intact. It’s nice to know that there are still honest andb decent people in the community.

Thumbs Up

To the person who gave a Thumbs Down to the Christmas Grinch! Way to call them out! I was thinking the same thing. Shame on people who don’t realize we live amongst many who are in need of assistance! I’m glad another person felt a sinking feeling knowing someone needed something on Christmas Eve. I’m glad you sent in such a large shaming response!

Thumbs Up

To everyone who takes pride in their job and does that little bit extra- especially those who work with the public this time of year!

Thumbs Up

To the Good Samaritan who stopped and helped me get my husband up when he fell. He’s okay. Thank you very much and God bless wonderful people like you. Mary

Thumbs Down

To the person or people who not only stole the cornerstone rock from St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church- Ridge Valley, but to steal the baby Jesus from our outdoor manger display? Really?!! Shame on you! Stealing from a church! Disgusting! God is watching!

Thumbs Up

Thumbs Up

To the young man and his daughter who I met briefly in the Weis Market in Dublin on December 26. They blessed me with a large sum of money. It’s so great to see God at work in this young family. I will pay it forward. Thanks again and may your family be richly blessed in 2022!

Thumbs Down

To the person who submitted the Thumbs Down on January 5th about the people in Pipersville lifting garbage can lids the last day of garbage pickup before Christmas. Shame on you! They were probably in a very poor financial situation. Scavenging for food, clothes and probably some kind of toy to give their children on Christmas morning. You’re a spoiled finger pointer, do you think they would choose that? I think not. Pride has no place when it comes to loving our children. They should be nominated for parents of the year. And you should be awarded the winner of the Biggest 2021 Christmas Grinch Award. Maybe someday, if you’re lucky, your heart will grow big, we must be our brothers keeper. Amen.

Thumbs Up

To all the high school marching bands and color guards who performed at the Cavalcade Championships at Hershey PA. Your dedication and commitment to music is great, especially in windy 40 degree weather. Also, thanks to the parents who support the bands with fundraising and the equipment. Your talent is greatly appreciated. Music brings happiness. Thank you. Pennridge Proud

Thumbs Down

To people who are being very inconsiderate and invading the privacy of others by using phones in bathrooms and locker rooms. Also to the woman who was having a parent/teacher video call in a locker room. People need to be more considerate of others, these are places cell phones should not be used.

October 20th, 2021

 

Thumbs Down

To whomever is responsible for the new pavement that was placed on Chestnut Hill Road between Limeport Pike and West Hopewell Road. The new pavement surface is far too irregular and should be scarified and repaved in the Spring at the contractor’s expense. It is really a shame how some people do not take pride in their work.

Thumbs Down

To the dog owners who leave the dog waste bag for someone else to clean up on the Rail Trail. And Two Thumbs Down to those who do not clean up at all. Shame on you!

To all the people who out of the kindness of their hearts and respect for the planet earth (our home) take bags on their walks and clean up trash along the way. Thank you for your caring and thoughtful consideration of others and our home, and giving of yourselves and your time.
Thank you so much!

A Big Thank You to the Haycock Fire Company. They came to my son’s birthday party on Saturday.
We appreciate it greatly!

Thumbs Up

A huge thumbs up to the New Hope Arts and Crafts Festival! Not only did you put on a fabulous show this past weekend, but you generously accepted the displaced artists, crafters, entertainers and food vendors from the unexpected cancelled Tinicum Arts Festival. Your collaboration and kindness is greatly appreciated by all concerned. Thank you from the Tinicum Civic Association.

September 29th, 2021

 

Thumbs Down

To neighbors who leave their dog outside, barking non-stop for hours on end, including in the middle of the night! Do you think your neighbors enjoy listening to your dog bark non-stop? Also, you should not leave your dog outside when you are not home, she’s barking non-stop then, too. Please be kind and keep your barking dog inside.

Thumbs Up

A Big Thumbs Up to the men who helped my husband when the door panel in his car caught fire. One of them put the fire out with water and disconnected the battery. Another man got my husband’s wheelchair out of the trunk and picked my husband up and put him in his wheelchair. Also, thanks to the staff of Country Place restaurant for helping to calm my husband down and providing a cool place for him to wait until I got there. You are all angels! Thank you and God bless you. Donna & Charlie

The Army Veteran & party want to thank a young man, his wife & son for paying for our meals on Saturday, August 28 at Country Place. Thank you! You are a great American!

Thumbs Up

To the Borough of Souderton for bringing back ”Concert Sundaes”. Thank you to Indian Valley Arts Foundation, and all other organizations and sponsors. The entertainment brought joy to the area communities.

Thumbs Down

To the person who trespassed and dumped two walkers and a disgusting used shower chair onto our back porch. You’re pathetic. Put your trash on your sidewalk. Also, it still had the elder’s name on it, which is a HIPAA violation!

Thumbs Up

A big Thumbs Up to our amazing local fire companies! We had our oil tank collapse on Friday the 13th and the response was nothing short of amazing! The fire companies of Quakertown, Richlandtown and our own Haycock Fire Company came on the scene quickly and well prepared. We are so grateful as it could have been so much worse. Volunteers rock!! Support your local fire company!

Gallantry is still alive. I was crossing with a cane in front of a pick-up truck who had stopped to let me pass. All of a sudden he jumped out of his truck and stuck his arm out and said “May I assist you to your car?” With a “God Bless You” he drove off with a smile. I also drove off with a smile. You know who you are Dan!

Thumbs Up

Thank you to the gentleman and the Pennridge policeman for helping us after our car wouldn’t start after our doctor visit. With all the unrest out there some goodness is still around. God Bless. Thanks again.

Thumbs Down

I travel Route 309 through Coopersburg at 5:45am and return at 4:15pm. I seem to be one of the very few drivers who do obey the posted speed limit through Coopersburg. Cars & trucks – Slow Down!!!

Thumbs Down

To the landlord for renting a space to people that made it a junkyard. It was nice before. I feel sorry for the lady that lives next to them. Her place is nice but has to see all the junk every day.

Thumbs Down

To the house with the obscene flag. America has always had political parties with opposing views but we don’t need to use vulgar words to express our opinion.

August 18th, 2021

 

Thumbs Down

To people who just walk out in front of vehicles at a crosswalk. There are signs that there is a crosswalk, but that does not mean that if you are not in the crosswalk area and a vehicle is 3 feet from the marked area that the driver is supposed to stop and you can just walk in front of the vehicles. You must be in the crosswalk and then the vehicles are supposed to follow the rules and stop for the pedestrians. This also goes for crosswalk areas in shopping centers and streets with crosswalks. For one woman pointing to the sign and stepping out into the crosswalk area near Target in Quakertown when I was just about 3 feet from the crosswalk and pointing to the sign that she saw and was hidden behind the trees still in the wrong because she was not in the crosswalk when I was approaching it.

Thumbs Up

To Jason Moffett for taking time to help me find a display case for historic Bibles and thanks to the case owner for donating it to our church.

Thumbs Down

To the property owners who do not trim their tree branches and bushes from hanging into the sidewalk areas where people walk. Also to the people who do not trim their tree branches from the road area where vehicles can get scratched up when driving by.

Thumbs Up

To homeowners who have trimmed their plants and trees or removed them at intersections so drivers can have better visibility when pulling onto the roads. That has made for a safer intersection.

Thank you to Bill at Lake Nockamixon State Park for doing a terrific job grooming the bike trails. They never looked better!!!

Thumbs Up

With so much hate filling our newspapers and air waves, I am so pleased to share some good news. I promised to repay the kindness of a couple who anonymously bought me a meal on July 3. I kept my promise and anonymously treated two people. Karma and ”paying it forward” are alive and well in Bucks County! Another most wonderful couple treated me to an excellent Sunday meal at Siam Restaurant, Buckingham PA. I was more than surprised when my server would not take my credit card, saying “No, the young couple you complimented paid for everything.” I again send warm thanks and a promise too. I will again return this kindness by anonymously treating another person to a terrific meal.

To the ”adult” who drives his dirt bike and ATV on a private road, completely ruining the recent stone work done on the Private Road. Look at the county tax parcel maps, not Google Maps for correct property lines. The stone lane is private. Google Maps is not a legal document!

To the Thumbs Up about our wonderful Quakertown Community which was published on July 14th. I could not have put it into words better than you. Let’s not all hide behind our computer screens to chat. We can all build or rebuild a new type of community in person. I think Quakertown is a perfect model of this!! Diversity, integrity, honesty, principles and sincerity come to my mind first. America needs more Quakertowns!!!

To the people who live in Hellertown who randomly set off illegal, commercial grade fireworks almost every weekend. Fireworks for July are meant to remind us of ”bombs bursting in air” which is exactly what they sound like to dogs, young children, and people trying to sleep for 3rd shift jobs.

Thank you to the Community of Trumbauersville for bringing back Community Day and to thank the people who pay for and put on all the fireworks for us. Thank you to the Trumbauersville Fire Company for being there for all of us.

To the kind person who paid for my bagels at the Dunkin’ Donuts in Souderton. Thank you so much! It will be paid forward.

Thumbs Down

To the person who parks her car in front of some other house on the street just to be rude. If you parked in front of your own house, your car would be in the shade. We have great people on this street, please don’t spoil it!

Thank you to the community of Quakertown. To all the churches that help the homeless when they call. For all the food pantries that feed the low income people in our community. Quakertown is a wonderful place to live. Our police keep us all safe and fire companies are there for us also. We have wonderful, caring people such as Kelle who has fed many people this past winter on her own.

To the fantastic family who bought my meal at Garden Buffet on July 3rd. Your kindness made my Saturday afternoon a Super Saturday! How blessed we are to have people such as you in our community. Thank you so much! “The Dude in the Lighted, Flashing Fedora”.

To all the neighborhood people who praise and those who gripe- where have you been? My weekly gossip has been bone dry for two weeks now! I need my funny threads back!
