                                 "Hello! and welcome back"


                                         I know it's been a while, 

so let me begin by saying thanks to everyone who checked on our pulse this winter via

e-mails, Facebook, and tuning in our skills on youtube ( my bad when I wrote you Ellen!

I said FB, when I meant the latter)..

     Any whoo, we'll be gearing up to start the season about the 1st week of May,

happy to say (and I hope I'm not jinxin' it) we made it through this season

without any damage, and have received a lot of cool stuff folks to put in and on the walls

which we hope to finish this season, so we can set the beams for the ceiling,as well as

finishing the ramp system.  for those just tuning in on the project hope you'll check out the

skills of yours truly, and friends on "Youtube", we have two stations now hosting music on

Sundays at the Palace the original, "jydvil1, and the new channel "themircafe", the latter

show-casing local, and old friends perform original, and cover tunes of thier favorite songs

please enjoy! Well, gonna keep it short tonight, but will get back to all of you when we

decide on our days, until then, peace out,

                                                    " Febuary 26th 2012"

                                                        Welcome back!

     thanks to every one  for stopping in over the Fall and Winter months!

   for those of you who couldn't make it out to our 3rd  Halloween here's hoping next year

   we'll see you!

            a lot has gone on through the winter months, with the decission to cover the upper

   floor of the Palace with a HUGE drop cloth, we have been able to continue work on the

   den and kitchen, as well as conducting tours this season, and with luck through to the

 spring, with the completion of the wagon wheel door to the "nugget room", Fred Tolley

  has gone on to working up the ramp system that will take folk up to the radio tower, and

 walk ways on the Palace's 2nd floor, also begun, or completed are the pulpit on the grand

fireplace, the fireplace itself, and the arch way below the radio tower, finally conecting

 the palace entirely at the ground level,  as well as the ground aroubd the Palace being

 cleared of debris along the banks of Little Robin's creek and the paths and rock gardens


            Before we go, we would like to remind everyone, you are more than welcome to

 come out to visit for the "nickle tour", but please, only if the cable's down, ( you may

also call ahead, 856-899-3291) to see if we're in, if you decide to tresspass, the police

 will ticket and/or, empound your car. so please, don't.

             once again, we wish to thank everyone that has helped out as a volunteer, or

 made a donation of materials, or funds, we hope you feel as good about the Palace and

progress as we do,

                                                    sincerely, j. Tirante
