One Week in August

ONE WEEK IN AUGUST ~ by Ronald D. Phillips, Jr. I recently returned from a trip to California and after having a few days to reflect, I decided to try to describe the impact the trip had on me. The purpose of the trip was to take a friend, adaptive surfer Jay Leisner, to surf Southern California, the mecca of modern surfing. Despite the noble purpose, the feelings the trip ultimately stirred in me were uniquely personal. The trip took me back to a time when life was more innocent and less heavy. A time when I got to surf […]

Jay Liesener and Team Surfgimp

Spreading the Stoke ~ By Ronald D. Phillips, Jr. Last night, I was lucky enough to be able to attend a party to honor my friend Jay Liesener and to celebrate his upcoming trip to San Diego where we hope to fulfill his dream to surf the waters of Southern California. As I stood there interacting with all the people who came out to be a part of what has become affectionately known as Team Surfgimp, I couldn’t help but reflect on how remarkable this whole thing was. I listened to everyone talking about how they came to know Jay […]

Happy Memorial Day!

So…Memorial Day.  I think that many people miss what it is really about.  Most people associate Memorial Day with the beginning of summer, barbecues and a cool 3 day weekend.  All of these are true but I want to make sure that people know that there is more to it.  So here is a mini-history lesson – Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day and originated after the Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers.   By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. It is actually a […]

Memorial Day Weekend in Delaware

Memorial Day weekend is just a few days away. The boardwalk, the beach, the smell of the ocean and Thrasher’s French fries, crowds, sunburns are what many love about Southern Delaware. However, if you love the beach but want to avoid the enormous summer crowds there are 8 Delaware beaches that tend to stay quiet, even in the middle of tourist season. Read this article from “Only In Your State”. Unfortunately, along with all the pleasant experiences, there are also some things we hope to avoid on Memorial day weekend at the beach; traffic tickets, noise complaints, DUI, disorderly conduct […]

St. Patrick’s Day in Delaware

Delaware comes alive with celebrations for St. Patrick’s Day, which is Saturday, March 17. One of the most popular Sussex county events is the Milford Pub Crawl.  Find more information on Milford’s 8th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl. Unfortunately, that means police will be making plenty of DUI arrests, too. There have already been a number of St. Patrick’s Day drinking events in Delaware, and there will be even more this weekend. Police generally have increased patrols for DUIs around all the holidays—not just St. Patrick’s Day. But what happens if you’re one of the people arrested for DUI […]

Advanced Health Care Directives ~ it’s about your family.

Recently I was at a game catching up with friends.  A friend recently died and invariably the subject of advanced health care directives (also called living wills) came up and I shared my “pitch” about how important a living will is. I was talking to 4 people, ranging in age from 30-60, all of whom said that they don’t want extraordinary measures taken, and not one of them has executed a living will.  So I asked them why.  Answers ranged from “just haven’t had time” to “I don’t have an attorney” to “Isn’t it complicated?” I told them that it […]
