TWO LOVELY PARTIES I ATTENDED THIS WEEKEND, neither of which I am allowed to expound on to much

I was thrilled to attend both as they are always in the gossip/social pages. I wasn't allowed to bring my camera to Saturday nights party, but I did bring it to Friday's party but can only share the photos below...People know, if I have my camera, your event very well might show up in the newspaper, but most certainly will show up on my blog. I am certainly trying to fashion myself after the http://www.newyorksocialdiary.com/ but as someone who attends all kinds of events, parties and affairs not just the social "registered" scene.Mary ChristmasHer house is lovely, her children sweet, house decorated to the nines, guests on political and social scene, Hostess mentioned in this month's Philly Mag as a mover and shaker, I think, but who knows as I can't get a copy yet to confirm
Saturday nights party had a few cross over people, but was a really who's who of the social scene, politicians, gay movers and shakers and more of an all walks of life attendence. A relaxed atmosphere with lots of laughing and story telling.

MY FRIEND HELEN GYM WAS NAMED PHILLY INQUIRER'S PERSON OF THE YEAR

I wrote a little about Helen and her husband earlier in the week, but I wasn't allowed to tell you about this honor she was to receive. This is what I had to say about her: I first met Helen back when she championed the effort to keep the stadiums out of Chinatown, an issue my life partner was also concerned with. Another cause Helen near to her heart is education. Recently on Frontline she was quoted as saying, "Education is not a business. At some point, quality of education and the concept of profit will conflict and that quality of public education will suffer."
Congratulations Helen!! http://www.philly.com/inquirer/opinion/20071223_Editorial___Helen_Gym.html
