Best Ribs Around

Friday, Jul 16, 2021
We love going to J.B. Dawson’s for their ribs and have really missed them during the pandemic. Every single time we’ve gotten the ribs their they’re always fall off the bone and taste great. Their options for sides aren’t really something I’m thrilled with but the cole slaw is good. The thing that that throws me off is they have three different price levels for them and even in the most expensive ones there’s not much I’m really thrilled with.

Fresh Strawberries

Sunday, Jun 6, 2021
One nice thing about living here in Lancaster County is sometimes you see stands selling fresh fruits or vegetables. There are still some farms around here that haven’t been sold out to development yet but I’m sure that’s only matter of time. There’s one stand on East Main Street that we typically get stuff from different times. I could be wrong but something is making me think they may be Amish.

First Rainbow Of The Year And It's A Double Rainbow

Monday, Apr 19, 2021
Molly just bitched at me saying I guess we won’t be going for a walk tonight because it’s raining. I looked outside and saw some blue to our north and said we’d be fine. I grabbed my tablet to come upstairs on the computer for a bit while we digest and relax a bit before going and noticed the sun was fully shining I thought I would go outside to see if there’s a rainbow because why not?

Fourth Double Rainbow of the year

Monday, Sep 2, 2019
Seems to be the theme of the year. Last year it was just rain every day and flooding but this year its been scattered thunderstorms and rainbows. September Second we had the typical passing storm of the year and sure enough timing and sun angle were right for another rainbow. Not only that but it was a double rainbow yet again. Fourth time this year that has happened. I don’t think I’ve seen four double rainbows in my life before this summer let alone in one few month period.

August Eighteenth, The Third Double Rainbow Of The Year

Sunday, Aug 18, 2019
We had a pretty good thunderstorm this evening. It really poured for a little bit and I think there may have even been some small hail mixed in. Being late in the evening the sun was pretty low and stayed out while it poured. I figured there might be a rainbow so of course went outside to check for one. There was indeed one and it was a very bright one at that and then the second outer one.

Another Double Rainbow, The Second One Within A Week

Thursday, Aug 8, 2019
We had scattered thunderstorms pop up today and while it didn’t rain much if at all here the storm was to our east and the sun was the right angle to give is a rainbow. I saw it out the window so I went to a nearby open area to see if I could see one. Sure enough there was not only one but a double rainbow. Another double rainbow over a field.

We Were Driving Home And Saw Another Rainbow

Tuesday, Aug 6, 2019
This photo shows a very bright rainbowWe saw a very bright rainbow while driving and just had to get a picture of it. A small shower popped up just to our south this evening and never produced anything for us. The cloud itself couldn’t have been very big at all and didn’t look like it was even producing rain. It was dumping rain for sure though. We were driving through the back streets taking a shortcut through Mount Joy when we saw this very bright rainbow.

Double Rainbow in Mount Joy

Saturday, Aug 3, 2019
Double rainbow someplace in Mount Joy PAHere’s a photo of a double rainbow over a street someplace in Mount Joy. We had some heavy rain then the sun came out while it was still raining so of course I thought to look for a rainbow. Not only was their a rainbow but there was a double rainbow! Haven’t seen one of those around here in a year or two if I am remembering correctly.

Earthquake Real Close To Home

Wow… I don’t know if it woke me up or I was awake but I heard a deep rumbling and thought that sounds like an earthquake. Well I got up and went on the computer and checked Millersville’s real time seismic data.. Something showed up.. So maybe it wasn’t my imagination. Checked USGS’s earthquake site and they showed a confirmed 3.3 earthquake just north of Mountville, pa Pretty cool! Here’s info for the [“Magnitude 3.

Chicken Pot Pie For Supper

Friday, Feb 23, 2007
We’re having chicken pot pie for supper today. Not the stuff you get in the store. The Amish kind with the home made noodles. If you’ve never had it you have to try it. It’s starting to smell good. I really do like Molly’s pot pie better than the store bought kind even though I like that too. It’s interesting how they are completely different things but have the same name.
