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!

We appreciate it greatly!

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.

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.

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

To the two wonderful men who picked me up as I lay in the rushing water in Sellersville. You took me to my car and stopped traffic so I could go across the street. Both of you were wonderful as was the lady who was with you.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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!!!

 

Thumbs Down

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.

Thumbs Up

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!

To the gentlemen who sat behind us at the Pennridge High School graduation on June 15th. I’ve never been seated near anyone so loud, rude, disrespectful and obnoxious. I was minutes away from letting you know how I felt about it when you thankfully left in the middle of the ceremony. Did they not teach you respect, honor and self control? From making fun of kids names as they were read, to talking loudly over all the speeches, to swearing, to making cross comments, it was an embarrassment to everyone who had to hear you. I’m sorry that you thought the class of 2021 ceremony was such a joke. It was my one and only child’s graduation and I would have like to have been able to hear it.
