Home Sweet Home – But Get OUT of that HOUSE!!!

The days are getting longer, the temperatures are getting higher and the ominous need to get out and about is getting stronger! 

We all muddled through this bitter winter somehow and while we know that Spring will have officially Sprung on March 20, 2015, for many of us, the lingering snow piles left in our backyards beg to differ.

The Dorflinger Wildlife Sanctuary And Glass Museum
A small town in northeastern Pennsylvania called White Mills contains a pristine wildlife sanctuary on land formerly owned by Christian Dorflinger. Dorflinger was the owner of Dorflinger Glassworks, a cut glass business that had tremendous success in its early years.  His glassworks were in business from 1852 to 1921, putting White Mills on the map. The handsome home and property that would become the Dorflinger Wildlife Sanctuary and Glass Museum was at one time where Dorflinger lived though he preferred to be in town. It was owned by other members of his family in later years. It eventually passed to his Grandson, Frederick Dorflinger Suydam.

Lenni Lena’Pe ~ The True People Of The Poconos
Long before Europeans, the Lenni Lena’pe called this area home. These Native Americans were the first inhabitants of the Pocono Mountains, having settled in the area over 10,000 year ago. Lenape is pronounced “Leh-NAH-pay” and it means “the people.” Sometimes you will see this name spelled Lenape, Lenápe or Lena’pi. The tribe is also known as the Lenni Lenape which translates to “true people” or the Delaware Indians after the Delaware River – The River of Human Beings, which runs through Lenni Lena’pe territory. The word Pocono in the native Lena’pe tongue means “a river between two mountains.” The Lena’pe did not have a written language; their history was passed from generation to generation by storytellers.
