Gadfly checks in

Gadfly’s attention has of necessity turned in-house lately, so original content will probably be lean for a while. But he invites your posts. ‘Tis a good time for followers — especially those who might now have some time on their hands — to grace our pages with their thoughts or pictures.

“Good conversation builds community.”

Brief notes:

  • The great Bethlehem Area Public Library reminds us of their substantial online resources still available for our use.
  • Gadfly #1 Stephen Antalics writes: “I strongly urge all to listen to the first movement ONLY of the fourth symphony of Carl Nielson entitled “The Inextinguishable” for it depicts the fear, chaos, confusion, turmoil and the unknown that we all are experiencing together today.  But the movement ends with a glimmer of hope.  Have faith, endure and be together for, as in the music, all this will pass. P.S. It can be found on youtube.”
  • Good news in the Bethlehem Food Co-Op newsletter: “We are getting closer to finalizing our home! We have signed a letter of intent on a site in the north Bethlehem downtown and have begun the legal paperwork negotiations necessary before we can finalize the lease arrangements. The board feels confident that we will have some exciting news in the very near future!”
