Delivery Of Antares Stage 1 Assembly

The delivery of the Anteres Stage 1 Assembly had been delayed until Wednesday, February 5, 2014. 


So, Wednesday morning around 8:00 a.m. the rocket assembly passed through the intersection of Route 13 and Route 113 in Pocomoke City, Maryland headed for Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia just a few miles south.

The next targeted date for launching of the Anteres rocket is scheduled for sometime in April 2014.


We'll be waiting and watching for more updated information.

Many thanks Leslie and Cindi.bw

Pocomoke's "Riverside Grill Restaurant"

Downtown Pocomoke City, Maryland
Friday   July 6, 2012

You just can't imagine the excitment that was all around Friday morning.  The people of Pocomoke City have waited for a beautiful downtown restaurant for so many years.  And now there is one sitting right on the banks of the beautiful Pocomoke River.

Easy access by boat with FREE docking.  It's within walking distance after shopping downtown or attending the movies.  And yes, it's very easy to find if you are traveling south on US Route 13 highway.....just turn right at the first intersection light, follow the road to the left.  You can see this beauty of a restaurant before you travel over the downtown draw bridge! 

The proprietors: Mark, Leslie, the two younger brothers (I will get their names) and Corey Reeves. Corey will manage the Riverside Grill Restaurant and I can tell you that this entire family and the entire working staff at the restaurant will fit in quite nicely with the people of Pocomoke and those visiting. 



(I took a peek through the kitchen door window.  Nice kitchen.  I remember when there was nothing there to even look at!)

There have been many ribbon cutting ceremonies and it was Mayor Bruce Morrison who said he'll never get tired of them!  I don't think anyone will.
MD. Delegate Mike McDermott(center) Pocomoke City Police Chief Kelvin D. Sewell(right) speak with the newest Pocomoke City Police Officer. 

This is just one view of how beautiful it is from the inside looking out.  There are more photos soon.

What an exciting time in downtown  Pocomoke recently.  I've been downtown alot in the past few months and I can see the wonderful changes that have taken place in just a short time.  There are still stores downtown that I haven't had a chane to visit- but I will.  The Mayor was absolutely correct when he mentioned Pocomoke Pride.  Not one person disagreed...why would they?

So many of you have been asking when the restaurant will open.  The only answer I have as of right now is "SOON".  So just have patience.  If it were my restaurant and I was about to serve so many Pocomoke citizens I'd want things to be right too!

I know you will enjoy the restaruant and those that work there.  I know you will love the view.

Note to Kathy:  Get ready....

Progress Continues.........

The New Restaurant
Pocomoke City, Maryland
Thursday  April 12, 2012

Things were on the move around the restaurant during the first part of the week.
A fence has been erected to hide the back of the restaurant, which is a good idea.
No matter how small the job something is always being done in the new restaurant. 
On April 5th when I took photos the entire walls had already been painted with a base coat.  I don't mind telling you that those walls were painted with the brightest white I had ever seen....UGH!

In talking with Councilman Malloy and hearing his news I KNEW I couldn't wait for another  week to pass....
This is what I found - no not this......

THIS!!!  A burst of color!!
I'm not the world's best photographer but the camera has done a nice job on giving you some idea of the choice of blues.  It's beautiful.   And as for me I don't think another color would suit this restaurant considering where it sits.
The hardest work, I would imagine,  has been completed.  Remember that the only thing on this site just a few months ago was dirt.....those photos are on this blog too.  I've watched this building grow.  I've met some wonderful people along the way.  And most of those wonderful people are hard working people right from good old Pocomoke!  They are your sons, your brothers, your husbands or your neighbor.  They helped build this masterpiece that now sits and overlooks the Pocomoke River.  Each and every business, whether from Pocomoke City or not,  has done an outstanding job.

 I know how to enter the building. I know where the EXITS are.  I've found the restrooms. Now I'm just waiting on the kitchen............

(On site this day was Tapmans.)

The New-Soon-To-Be Pocomoke City Police Station

MARKET STREET
POCOMOKE CITY, MARYLAND
THURSDAY APRIL 5, 2012



The new Pocomoke City Police Station is still a work in progress at this point but lots of progress has been made since my last visit two weeks ago.  Again, you just can't believe how awesome and wonderful this building will be when it is completed. 
With all doors being hung the knobs were being installed.  If I were this young guy I'd have a headache.  He didn't seem to mind.  Door knobs....hmmm...


Hallway in the back of the building.  All tile and carpeting has been completed.  This place is really taking shape!
The Chief's office!  Carpet had just been put in place on my last visit and I didn't venture in there. 

But I did on this day......I wanted to see what that mess was in the floor!  Hey, you guys better get that cleaned up before the Chief gets there!  (I'm sure someone cleaned it up)
Be advised.  This isn't just any door.  It is the door to the juvenile holding cell. (gulp)  From this point on my day with Darren and Councilman Malloy would be a learning experience.  First of all cells do NOT have light switches on the wall.  I found this out after running my hand on the wall inside.....but the light kept going off and then on so I figured they must have put some kind of fancy lighting.... NOPE.
Light switches are on the outside wall.  Darren was in control of the switch!  NO door knobs either!  The door closed while I was in there and I heard Darren say something like he didn't know if the know worked or not.  HUH? The photos above are of the juvenile holding cell.  Steel bunks and NO place to use the bathroom.....I don't know what you do if you have to go....
Male holding cell.  Same gray metal bunks and stainless steel commode/sink combination.  I have never seen seen a contraption like this in my life.  But I have been reminded that a cell is not the Hilton and it is for safety reasons that these are used.  The female cell will be identical to this..... no room to move around, no color, no bling.

And I must admit that on this day I gained a true appreciation for light switches and door knobs!  And I will never, ever again complain about the small rooms in my own home......never.

Darren doesn't carry a normal cell phone.  It's the HOT LINE to the boss!  I have to give Darren a pat on the back.  He's such a good sport and his knowledge on the entire makeover of this building is remarkable!  I have never asked him a question he could not answer........

Thanks Councilman Malloy and Darren ( and Tom Beauchamp on the phone).  It has been another exciting trip to Pocomoke.  I WILL see you soon.
