Posted by Dan Golden on April 13, 2020 in No Category
Mitigation has been in the news for the past month or so. We managed to mitigate the isolation of an Easter Sunday without a family gathering thanks to the wonders of modern technology, namely, something called Portal. Portal is a device made by Facebook that allows you to have visual/audio contact with people who have their own Portal, much as you do on Facetime, only better. It’s a bit like Facetime on steroids.

The Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys For Tots program is looking for more than a few good men and women to help with the Montgomery County/Glenside campaign. Toys For Tots coordinator Guy Vogel, in presenting a plaque to Horsham Council in appreciation for its support of the campaign, told council at Wednesday night’s meeting that this might be the last year for the local Toys For Tots effort. Vogel said he has health issues that make it difficult for him to put in the time and effort required by the year-ar... read more

My new listing at 124 Clayton Road, Hatboro, PA 19040 just went on the market. I am hosting an open house on Sunday afternoon from 1-4 p.m. Stop by and check it out. It is on nearly one-third of an acre and located in the desirable Oak Hill neighborhood of Horsham Township and listed at $359,000. Its central air conditioning and heating systems were installed in 2017 making utilities extremely reasonable. You can walk to the elementary and middle school and it's close to shopping, the Pennsylvania Turnpike and the ... read more
