Here’s a little Fourth of July photo dump. We hopefully have pulled a new generation of river rats into Knee boarding and tubing. Phoebe and Crosby are still good with just trails. They are not yet ready to swim as sisters, Phoebe tried the life jacket and an assisted doggie paddle, but didn’t enjoy the muck. This time they were able to explore the Phillipston portion of the Armstrong trail.

On this day in 1937, Bill entered this one sweet world in Lyons, NY. The Arrigo, Caruso, Pankiewicz, Frye, Riley, LaMonica, Slaven, Sinko, Brickner, DiDonato and Springer group would like to wish Mr. Bill, Wild Bill and William a very happy birthday. Feliz Cumpleanos. This gentleman served his country in the US Army and then served the corporate army of Kodak making sure the cameras had the best lenses. He’s been sharing his retirement with Nancy taking his daily walks […]
Phoebe and Crosby wanted to practice gratitude for Mother Earth with a mindful walk through their favorite bark. Despite all the best efforts of the neighborhood dogs to kill the grass and everything else that blooms with excess nitrogen in our front lawn we are blooming. The rain of this week has only helped bring out the May blooms. Why does this really matter? It puts into perspective our human existence on this amazing planet. When we compare our time […]
There are days where I have the energy to write and think about what’s important in the world we live in, especially with the limitations for travel under the Covid-19 Pandemic. Today was a day to play tech support, look for old files and start something technical for 2021. In the process I found these little gems from when we could travel the high seas on a cruise ship. I don’t really know any of the stories behind these photos […]
You may want to bust out your calculator or spreadsheet in 2020, to half or quarter your recipes from past years. Be smart, be safe, if meeting with people outside your bubble mask up and meet outside. If eating with said people, have a chef plate the meals and a masked server serve the meals. In the north set up your garage for dinner, open the door and create mini-pod tables instead of a grand table. If you are lucky […]
First off, if you have a charity that you would like to give $300 to before year end in cash and don’t plan on taking itemized deductions in 2020 it’s OK to give that donation. CARES will allow you a line item deduction on donations at $300 or less. I know my political donations in 2020 don’t count but I have a few 501.3c that can get a little something something. Not sure if you understood what was tucked into […]
It’s Christmas 2020. One year after we first heard about the Covid-19 in Wuhan, the United States is clearly struggling to keep the health care system from collapsing due to the Covid-19 crush. Why did our CDC and government fail us? Why can’t they be transparent and craft a story that unites us to celebrate smarter. The fake news, not, NY Times has been my current go to on national hospital availability. If you think the PA shutdown is fake […]
