Can Ya Help Kenya
On the surface, the Sherlocks of Point Pleasant Beach seem to be just like any other family—Jimmy Sherlock can often be seen running various errands around town, while his wife, Patty, picks up their two youngest sons, Jimmy Jr., 11, and Jason, 10—from G. Harold Antrim Elementary School.
But on Oct. 12, the Sherlocks embarked on a rather extraordinary family adventure—a mission trip to Africa, where the Sherlocks and a team of volunteers will deliver meals, school supplies, clothing and a variety of other donated goods to needy families in and around Nairobi, Kenya.
Local Food Connections
I have been food-obsessed my entire life. Whether it’s quality low-end or a more upscale experience, I obsessively, thoroughly, delight in cuisine. I also have an emotional/spiritual appreciation for connectivity; that moment when the Light within you, connects with the Light within someone else. Those two elements are what this blog is about. While eating my way through the diverse cuisine of the Star News Group readership area, I hope to chronicle the trip in a way that is fun and inclusive.
The Traveling Momma: ‘09 Summer Road Trip
I'm a corporate drop out, self employed, mother of three and wife, looking for the unobtainable “balance” in life. At some point, I declared this summer the “season of opportunity.” I love my beach town, but something was calling me to travel this summer. Actually, it was a casual, passing comment from my good friend that wouldn’t rest. It was something along the lines of, “wouldn't it be great if we could take a road trip together?”
