There are Places I Remember:

Hope, N J-the home of our office.  Hope was a “planned community”-by the Moravians from Europe, who came here seeking religious freedom.  They didn’t make a real go, Hope’s never had more than 2,000 people (even today), so they “sold out” and left the town-leaving wonderful old stone buildings.  It’s truly a “land of make believe”…just ask Brian.


Saying of the Week

A small gift is better than a great promise.
