Welcome Weavers Way!
Good news in the ‘hood’

After five long months without, Chestnut Hill now knows it will again have a full-service grocery store.

Weavers Way, the Mt. Airy grocery cooperative, has just purchased the former Caruso’s location and is gearing up to bring a full-service market back to Chestnut Hill.

The Hill had been reeling for the last five months without a big grocer. Several local markets, most notably Top of the Hill Market and Deli and Jonathan Best, did a great job of stepping up, expanding their hours (in Jonathan Best’s case) and expanding their inventory.


On the shores of the memory banks

The world of the Internet is not only stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine.

I was minding my own business yesterday, editing and fact-checking the novel I’ve recently “finished,” when I noticed I may have committed two anachronisms.

 The one first appeared in reference to a country flea market filled with very odd people. The narrator says, “This is where Twin Peaks meets Deliverance.” A funny line, if you ask me, almost Jim-Harrisian in its mordant incisiveness. However, the story is set in 1985 and Twin Peaks did not come on television until 1990. (Deliverance was 1972). I substituted The Twilight Zone for Twin Peaks. It’s okay, but I’m still searching.
