Prior to the event, Keys is expected to will with volunteers at the West Philadelphia field office at 209 S. 52nd Street this afternoon. “As a mother and a daughter, I know there is too much at stake in the upcoming elections to sit on the sidelines. I’m excited for next week’s Women Vote summit to talk about issues that are important to me and my family,” said Alicia Keys. “In his

three years in office, President Obama has been an advocate for us since day one – from making health care more accessible and affordable to ensuring women can fight for equal pay for an equal day’s work. He has proven that he has the people in his heart! As a new mom, I am going to do everything I can to reelect the President because this election will determine where we go as a country and what kind of world my child will grow up in.” The summit is free and open to the public, individuals planning to attend are encouraged to RSVP here:





Daily Waffles From Joe Sbaraglia (The Waffleman) FRANCIS READ SCHOOL - An elementary school where we spent the school day. After school or in the evening, baseball, basketball and other games were played in its large schoolyard. In the summer, it was the site of the local Summer Play Ground

Program. This was four or so hours of fun and games – three days a week. GARBAGE - was not trash, ashes or dirt. Garbage was food scraps, vegetable peels, fruit rinds and kitchen waste. No coffee grounds, though.

The garbage was collected twice a week. It was stored in garbage cans used to hold it till collection day. Then it was taken to New Jersey, processed and used to feed the pigs on the many pig farms. This was the utmost in recycling. GAW-NA – Going to. For example: We are gaw-na go to da Vet.


GOOD-A-GHEENE - Cote ghino, a kind of Italian salami. For example: Never, ever put good-a-gheene in a hoagie. GRATED CHEESE - is liberally sprinkled on macaroni, in gravy and is an ingredient in meatballs. It was never bought in round boxes at the Ack-a-me. Everyone had their favorite type and a preferred place to buy it. Cheese was bought by the piece and was grated at home. After grating, it was stored in the refrigerator, in a container, to retain its freshness, until used. To buy a copy of this book E-Mail
