Orange and Purple on Another Gray Day

When the sun peeked out over the weekend, we took this shot of Orange Rhododendrons growing on the west side of the Ann DeSantis Real Estate office at 4550 Boston Post Road, Pelham Manor. I have never seen orange rhododendrons before. Ann must have planted them before she passed away in early 2006.

´╗┐Rosalie said the Purple Tulips inside the office looked like a sculpture, so I took a photo of them, too.
Think the sun ever will come out over 10803?
Let's hope so . . .

Vote for Pajama Day (and the School Budget and Board of Elections)

Lennon/McCartney said it best back in April 1966.

Should we question the Pelham School Board's "ethics" when it comes to getting out the vote for the school budget? The elementary school kids are encouraged to bring mom and dad to the High School because the kids get to vote on whether to have "Pajama Day," "Inside-Out Day," "Ice Cream Day" or another "fun" day at school.

Today is the vote, from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm in the Pelham Memorial High School Gym. And the weather is torrential, with a Flood Watch posted for Town.

So don't be surprised if voter turnout is exceptionally light.

For a last-minute look at the Board of Education candidates, watch the Candidates' Forum at

Bring your umbrella. Sorry, a smile won't be enough to keep you dry today.
