How can you tell it’s Spring in Ocean City? The annual St. Patrick’s Parade is Saturday, March 12, 2011. The parade steps off at 12 […]

Happy April Birthday!

April 13, 2010


Cathy celebrated her birthday with flair on the Ocean City Boardwalk this week. Of course, the sun was shining in honor of her day. Next year, perhaps, a red birthday cake and a glass of red wine? Would that go together? And a ride on the Ferris wheel! Good wishes to Cathy for a wonderful […]

It comes complete with AM/FM radio, but of course, zero horsepower. It’s the original “green” car. You provide the […]

Easter Weather Update for Ocean City

April 3, 2010


Late Saturday night update: Saturday was a disappointment in Ocean City, weatherwise. The sky remained gray for too much of the day, and the temperature failed to reach the predicted 60. A few more hours of sunshine and a few more degrees of temperature would have made all the difference. I’m hoping we get that […]
