I know it’s summer, it is hot, sometimes humid, but could we all try to stay cool at the transfer station? We have had an unusual amount of unpleasant behavior recently at the station.
It was unfortunate to witness the negative impact of a hand-wringing insurance carrier on the Fourth of July parade in Kings Mills this year.
Hey folks, this past week was a time for givin’ thanks for this ole truckah, as my one-year anniversary of a triple-bypass heart operation came and went. You know, sometimes, in fact too many times, we take life for granted, may it be a rut or routine we’re in, or maybe just not stoppin’ along the way and sayin’ a little thank you to those who cross your path every day.
July Fourth is a day for celebration all over the U.S., and it’s no exception at my 100-year-old family cottage in Cushing.

I made a sandwich for dinner the other night. I never do that. OK, not never, obviously, but rarely. Like twice a year. And it wasn’t because I was feeling lazy. I love spending time cooking dinner almost as much as I love eating it. Plus I get to sip a Manhattan while cooking :-).
Congratulations, Lincoln Theater!: I traveled out to Monhegan Island last Friday, June 22 and took in a fair amount of art – the new shows up at The Island Inn and the Monhegan Museum of Art & History, and the pottery, sculptures, and jewelry at Edison Studio.
