The Road Taken: Bob Kelly Reports the Traffic, But He Doesn’t Stop There —

In the early-morning hours of Sunday, June 11, a tanker truck exploded and caught fire underneath Interstate 95 at Cottman Avenue in Philadelphia, causing the northbound lanes on the highway to collapse and traffic in both directions to come to a screeching halt … for the foreseeable future. For Fox 29 News traffic anchor and feature reporter Bob Kelly, a quiet summer morning at the shore quickly turned chaotic.

“I found out at about 6:45am when my phone started going crazy,” he says. “I opened

The Art of Water: Josef Kote

What draws us to the water surrounding our shores?
Is the water a window, allowing us to peek at infinity, serenity, power, and grace?
Is the water a mirror reflecting light, absorbing shade, and amplifying our joy, against a horizon that never changes yet never stays the same?
Whatever “it” is that attracts us to the sea, Josef Kote has miraculously captured it in his latest exhibit, “Water.” Featuring 20 new, original paintings created exclusively for the show, “Water” debuts at Ocean Galle

PEAK INSIDE - World Class Architecture & Design

“House tour day is one of my favorite summer days,” says my sister-in-law, Lynn, part of my crew of family and friends who have turned the Cape Regional Designer House Tour into a summer tradition.

Each year we pile into my sand-strewn minivan and embark on a mission to explore some of the most beautiful homes we’ve ever seen. We stroll and marvel at the style, artistry, creativity, luxury, and hidden vistas that only this day reveals to us.

We make friends with fellow house tour enthusiasts,

MIC DROP: Angelo Cataldi

Sometimes you get a storybook ending.
This was not one of those times.

For months, listeners knew that Angelo Cataldi, the firebrand host of the SportsRadio 94WIP morning show would end his 33-year broadcasting career when the Eagles’ 2022 season ended. And for a while, it seemed Cataldi and The Birds were destined to share a storybook ending. Until they didn’t.

“They lost,” he says. “So that I could bitch right to the last day.” Perhaps this was the most fitting ending for this particular storybook after all.

Ray Didinger: Finished Business Indeed...

It seemed like such an innocent question at the time …

It is the first week of May and I am 45 minutes into a fun, freewheeling Zoom interview with Philadelphia sports media legend Ray Didinger when I say: “So the title of your most recent book is ‘Finished Business.’ Does that mean you’re thinking of retiring, or is it just a catchy title?”

Didinger, 75, falls quiet. Then asks, “When will this story come out?”

“Memorial Day weekend,” I answer.

“OK, then I’ll tell you … I’m retiring.”

From Grinch to…Grateful?

Honestly, I do not love Christmas. It’s not a popular statement. In fact, admitting it out loud, seems almost like breaking the 11th Commandment…Thou Shalt Love Christmas!

But I do love a good conversation starter question. So, for most big holiday dinners, I will come armed with a question so that everyone has a chance to talk (in a loud Irish family — this requires advanced planning). So, one Christmas I thought I had come with the BEST question! “What was your most memorable Christmas?” This

Like Mother, Like Daughter: Lisa Scottoline & Francesca Seritella

Lisa Scottoline has a story she likes to share about her late mother, known affectionately to Scottoline’s readers as “Mother Mary.”

“I always loved the story about the time I made her fly north to avoid a major hurricane heading for Florida,” Scottoline says. “When she got off the plane, she was approached by a reporter who was interviewing people about the hurricane. The reporter came up to her, asking, ‘Did you come north because you're afraid of the hurricane?’

“Mother Mary replied, ‘I’m n

Anti-inflammatory Foods: A Recipe for Healthier Joints

Chronic inflammation is not only bad for your overall health, but it can also lead to and exacerbate the symptoms of arthritis. “The inflammatory process certainly plays a role in joint health,” says Bucks County Orthopedic Specialists’ Dr. Thomas Vikoren, an orthopedic surgeon and hip and knee replacement specialist. “I treat so many patients who are struggling with pain and limitations

Concussion: How Active Rest is Changing the Game for Recovery

BCOS concussion specialist, Dr. Michelle Horn, discusses newer protocols and how active rest can improve physical, mental, and emotional symptoms.

Many parents of today’s young athletes were once athletes themselves in the 1970s, 1980s, or 1990s. Back then, if you suffered a concussion, you were likely told to lay still in a dark room…for a prolonged period. Stimulation, movement, and light were strongly discouraged as you tried to recover from a concussion.

Well, we’ve quite literally come ou

Innovative Rotator Cuff Surgery at Doylestown Hospital

Revolutionary Treatment Option Changes the Game for Massive Irreparable Rotator Cuff Tears at Bucks County Orthopedic Specialists

Before last year, if you had a massive irreparable rotator cuff tear, there were no minimally invasive surgical options to help relieve pain or restore function. But that is not the case anymore. In July 2021 the FDA approved the first balloon implant for arthroscopic treatment of irreparable rotator cuff tears – changing the game for or

Artist Josef Kote: Strokes of Genius

“He’s one of the best artists I’ve ever seen.”

That is high praise for Josef Kote coming from Kim Miller, the owner and operator of Ocean Galleries in Avalon and Stone Harbor for more than 30 years. Miller is very excited for Kote’s return to the gallery for “Healing,” his exclusive exhibit of new paintings from Saturday, Aug. 7 to Monday, Aug. 9.

Hosting Kote is more than special for Miller. “To me, it’s a privilege,” she shares. “To say this is a rare opportunity is putting it mildly. His ab

Brushes with Love: Hessam Exhibit

Hessam Abrishami is an artist with a message.
“These days – if you look at it – everywhere there is war,” he says. “There is anger. But my message is that this is not the way. We have to love. We have to share beauty.”

With pieces inspired by this message, the Persian artist, known simply as Hessam, will share a special collection of vibrant, fluid, lively artwork at Ocean Galleries from Sept. 1-6. During the “Colors of Romance” exhibit, Hessam will make gallery appearances from 7-10pm on Satu

What is Market Volatility and How Can You Protect Against It?

If anyone told you on January 1, 2020 that toilet paper was about to become a precious commodity…you wouldn’t have believed them. But, of course, that is exactly what happened when the pandemic hit, lock-down began, and panic-buying set in.

So, what does this have to do with financial markets? It illustrates that our world is unpredictable. And, financial markets are constantly reacting to the world. Share prices are always fluctuating up and down. What’s expendable can suddenly become valuable
