Ode to a Philly Guy

Philly’s known for its characters
We all have our favorite few
Their tales go down easy
With a pint of crafted brew

Billy Penn atop City Hall
Watches his greene countrie town
Franklin’s practically everywhere
Dude knew how to get around

Thanks to Eakins, Furness and Barnes
Philly tops the arts with ease
Connected to that culture crew
Is Bacon by mere degrees

Some men have inspired high hopes
In the arena of sports
But beating Dr. J and Schmidt
An underdog in silk shorts

New on the storied Philly scene
Is the topic of this po’m
He’s a known expert in his field
And chances are, you know him

With all his soul, he pours nightly
His smile he can’t cover
Always serving up pleasantries
Like his trademark “right on brother”

Greeting all who enter by name
He understands why we’re here
More than Southern-leaning plates
And the always top-notch beer

His Stoudts Pils and friendly manner
Offer after-work release
So my fave Philly guy these days?
Grace Tavern bartender, Rees

V případě poškození nádrže a úniku tekutiny v blízkosti elektrického zdroje by mohlo dojít k vážným škodám. Z důvodu nutnosti doplnit vodu před každým použitím nedisponují tyto vytírače časovačem, který poněkud postrádá smysl.

      I have seen lots of useful factors on your web page about pcs. However, I have got the impression that lap tops are still not quite powerful enough to be a good choice if you often do jobs that require lots of power, for example video croping and editing. But for world wide web surfing, statement processing, and the majority of other prevalent computer functions they are all right, provided you don’t mind small screen size. Appreciate sharing your opinions.
