Hi Michelle. I was reading Philly news today and saw article about Pottsgrove crash and then ended up at the ol' mercree web site. I started reading your blog and I think I ended up reading every post. Good stuff. Hope things are well in Pottstown.

Jason, you must've been really bored (perhaps incarcerated) to read all my blog posts. I haven't had the time to update it - or to read - as much as I'd like lately, to my chagrin. If you would've signed in with your e-mail I could've tracked you down better. How are you? Where are you these days?
