BLUE MOON CAFE
FELLS POINT
Baltimore Maryland

Cap'n Crunch French Toast
with Bananas & Blue Berries

 

We always fly in BWI and usually stop at the Maryland Line Inn at the Pa. border for lunch on our drive to York Pa. This year we decided to go directly to the Blue Moon Cafe in Fells point to try the Cap'n Crunch French Toast that we saw on Diners, Drive ins' & Dives on the Food Network. Boy... I gotta tell ya... this is some great French Toast and what a meal. If your in the area you gotta try this place out. I understand that the lunch and dinner food is great also. They say there is usually a long line of people to get in, but we hit it at a good time ... 11 am.... no line to get in. Stop in and see "Gina" ... kool chick... Tell her "Cube" sent ya !

Last year I featured LeadBetters in Fells Point. I wanted to visit Curtis the bartender this year, but they didn't open until 3 PM and I couldn't wait around that long. Click here to see last years York Page!

Now on with the rest of my 2008 York Pennsylvania visit.....

My visit with the retirees of UAW Local 786

When I first put this page together I forgot to mention my visit at the retiree meeting of United Auto Workers Local 786, Probably because I forgot to take some photo's  too.  I was a member of UAW Local 786  for 30 years while I worked for Caterpillar Inc. in York Pa. I held many positions and served on many of the committee's in the Local during that 30 years, from  Recreation Committee, Education Committee, Safety Committee, Vice President and President of the Local. Also during that time I was an officer in the Pennsylvania South Central CAP Council (The Political Branch of the UAW). I traveled to Washington D.C. every year for a week to attend the UAW Political Conference where we met with our Representatives and discussed the issues. I learned a lot during those 30 years and got a real understanding how our political system works. I had the opportunity to meet many politicians from both sides of the aisle. I can never thank the UAW enough for the education  that I received from them during those 30 years.  

I became keenly aware of the Reagan Presidential years as Caterpillar threatened to close our plant and then eventually did. I'll never forget the 18 months on strike when I was President of the Local, as the CEO of Caterpillar refused to bargain in good faith and was determined to break the UAW Union. I have the greatest respect for the UAW  members who stood their ground across the nation against a ruthless power hungry CEO. Over the years I have watched as other Companies in the United States went down the same path as Caterpillar in their quest for huge profits and outrageous CEO pay and bonuses. So I have a very good understanding about what has been happening in this country since the Ronald Reagan years. I truly hope that we can change direction in this country and some how restore all that has been lost .

It was great to see all the UAW members again and I really enjoyed attending the retiree meeting with my girlfriend Vinnie. I have a lot of fond memories of York, Pa.

 

 

York High class of 63.... 45th Class reunion

That would be me in the top row on the right

Take a good look... you don't see the suit much anymore since I retired

It was nice to attend the class reunion. The last one I attended was the 25th. I got to see a lot of people and I have to say that everyone really changed in their looks, except me ! What a bunch of old people....

My High School Graduation Picture


My class had a little get together at a local Pub the night before the reunion and when we got there I said to Vinnie... "Where do you think they are"? She said it's probably those old people over there.... like you... I said.."Oh Yea" !! It was funny!

On a sad note.... I did see that a lot of class mates have died and that sure makes you think about living everyday to the fullest... makes you realize that life is short !

Of course ..York is where they build most of the Harley motorcycles and you can see that the town is proud of that. Everywhere you go you see motorcycle stuff. This is the local McDonald's in the photos below... the motorcycle display is from the movie Easy Rider!


I always stop in to see my buddy that works the day shift at the Cheers Bar. He has the scoop on all the stuff going on... he usually has some kind of neat T-shirt on too. I really liked the one he had on this time...... He'll be visiting the Tampa area in October to play some golf.

 He was also nice enough to give me a York Bike Week T-Shirt from this years bike week...

 

It's always nice to visit family and Vinnie's Family is also close to York, so we can all get together. Some of us went to The Olive Garden for lunch one day. 

 

Mike & Dan.... Mike on the left is one of my 3 son's

 

Vinnie and her two sisters, Beth & Amy

 

We were lucky enough to make this trip at the right time of the year. We usually go to York in the summer, but this trip was in October, because of the class reunion. It just happened to be the time when my favorite craft show "Sugarloaf" was in Timonium Maryland, so a bunch of us went there one day.

The whole trip was very busy.... Something going on everyday. Got to the Harley Plant, the Harley Dealers, Texas hot winers in Hanover Pa. and Taco's at the Pub on the Trail. Got to visit Vinnies mother and Father  (Forgot to take photos.. Bummer) and got to see most of my buddies.

Olivia... My Granddaughter

Scott... Another one of  my sons....
Jason the other son lives in Vermont
and was unable to be here

Looking forward to my next visit... Next Summer....
