Sorry that the Diary's been pretty quiet all week. Too much to do before the holidays. But I've been around town a lot at night this week, and I have to say, we've got some great looking light displays in our neighborhoods. I think my favorite is the 2 blocks of Locust Street between Brown and Logan, up near Rittenhouse. Nearly every house in that stretch is decorated. Go check them out.
Not too many events this week. Enjoy the ones this weekend, then have a
great Christmas/ Hanukkah/Kwanzaa, all of which are happening this
Friday, between 4 and 6 pm, Montco OIC (Arch and
Basin Sts.) will have a public Toys for Tots day for families who need
help this holiday season. The toys are mostly for infants to 8 years. If
you know a family in Montgomery County (must be residents) who may not
have a Christmas this year, have them stop by THIS FRIDAY between 4-6
pm. More info at http://bit.ly/Toys-For-Tots-Day or email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 610-279-9700.
beginning at 10:30 am at Zachary's BBQ (1709 Markley Street), Feed The
Burbs will present "Introduction to Permaculture and Soil Building
Workshop." Although winter is just starting, now is the perfect time to
start thinking about spring planting. One guaranteed benefit for your
garden is to focus on building rich soil. Help us lay the foundation for
a great garden while learning the tips and tricks to building healthy
soil, with no digging necessary. Sponsored by Zachary's BBQ, http://www.zacharysbbq.com/.

One last item: I'll be singing with Colonial Revelers at Valley Forge Park tonight between 6 and 8 in the visitor center. It's the anniversary of the Continental Army's arrival at Valley Forge and lots of family activities are planned. Come out and bring your kids.
