USPS Priority Mail Rates Adjustment

On September 07, 2014 USPS adjusted shipping rates for Priority Mail. This rate adjustment will both increase and decrease 'Retail Rates' at the Post Office, but will only DECREASE rates for postage purchased online via Stamps.com

For regular Priority Mail purchased online (weight and zone based pricing), the decrease in rates is focused on package weight over 5 lbs. and travelling to Zones 1 through 4.

For Priority Mail Rate products(envelopes and boxes), there is no rate adjustment. For a complete guide to USPS Priority Mail Sept. 2014 Mail Rate Changes, see http://blog.stamps.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/UltimateGuide_to_PriorityMailRateUpdate_Sep2014.pdf

ALL-SEASON PARTY FOOD



Thinking of what to prepare for your party or for your family. This dip will surely please your guest, men in particular. There’s a variety of recipes to choose but this one is the best and easy to make.


Bonnie’s Buffalo Chicken Dip

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves( about 2 pounds), boiled, drained  & shredded with 2 forks. (You can also use Costco or BJs rotisierrie chicken)


1- 12 ounce bottle of FRANK’s hot sauce

2- 8 ounce packages Cream cheese (store brand  is okay ; 1/3 less fat  is good too)

1-16 ounce bottle of Ranch dressing (any brand will do)

½ cup chopped celery (optional)

8 ounces shredded Monterey Jack or sharp cheddar cheese or combo


Preheat oven to 350 degrees . In a 13x9x2 inch baking pan, combine the shredded chicken meat with entire bottle of Frank’s hot sauce, spreading to form an even layer. In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the cream cheese with entire bottle of ranch dressing, stirring until smooth &  hot. Pour this mixture evenly over the chicken mixture to form a 2ndlayer. Sprinkle chopped celery over top.Bake uncovered for 20 minutes until hot & bubbly. You don't want the top to get browned or it will be hard. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving hot/warm with celery sticks and/ or any sturdy dipping chip.


This is so good that it will be gone in minutes!!

ODYSSEY CHARTER SCHOOL EXPANSION PLAN



Odyssey Charter School  filed  expansion plans to  New Castle County  from  K-6 to K-12 campus at Barley Mill Plaza Office Park. With this plan, the school will absorb nearly a third of the 92 acres along Delaware 141.

The community was pleased with the idea of  creating a school instead of the previous plan of   Stoltz Real Estate Partners to develop the site for commercial and residential use, including high-rise condos and shopping center.
