Sunday Daily Times Letter To The Editor

It's been quite a while since I have purchased a Sunday Daily Times and today I decided to treat myself.  I quit buying all newspapers when I lost my job several years back and had to cut corners.  Now that I have a fairly secure job, I thought it was time to enjoy the Sunday paper.  Boy, what a shock.  After I took out the 2 pounds of advertisements, I had a few pages of nothing left.  What a disappointment.  I can remember years back when I could sit for 2 hours reading the paper on Sunday morning.  Now I could probably finish it in 2 minutes.  That's my last purchase of a Sunday paper.

Its Another Beautiful Day On DelMarVa

Take advantage of this absolutely beautiful day by getting outdoors and enjoying the Eastern Shore. They still have that Beer Festival thing going on at Pemberton Park from 12:30 to 6:00, or so. I can tell you it was packed yesterday and I expect to see the same thing today.

This is their 2nd Annual event adding much needed income to the County through local restaurant and hotel revenue/taxes. I was looking at our calendar of events and there's only one event up there for today. That's unusual.

Have a great day Folks.
