Snow and Mark, there are huge questions about the impact windmills will have on birds, which ofRead More course include all seabirds and include migrating birds of all types. There are also concerns about the appearance. Tourism is a huge industry and appearance and beauty is what attracts people. There are other options to wind other than looking at these huge towers lining the land, shore and ocean.

Enrico suave.... Thanks! I need all the help I can get. Seriously though, that picture came fromRead More the clay pits on the White River in VT. Someone said it was good for the skin so I slathered it on. I was hoping it grew hair. Damn. It also donned a beer my buddies and me made in Natick called Muddy River Porter. Yum.

What spring? It's still cold and snow is coming to Northern New England come next week. I stillRead More have humungus mounds of snow in my entire yard! I'll believe it come May! (You're a good sport Steven.:))

Me too John ... tho I think crawling about in sweet, composted earth is OK. I plan on a fewRead More containers this year in addition to my usual garden patch, in which I use soaker hoses for ease in watering and to diminish the possibility of leaf fungus ... it really does help a lot.

Looking forward to the BLOOMING DAFFODILS!! Keep your eyes open for these golden beauties along theRead More 202 Parkway, Rt 611 and the I95 interchange in Newtown as well as along the Delaware River Canal… all courtesy of Bucks Beautiful, a non profit organization dedicated to beautifying Bucks County. And after this long, cold and harsh winter I think we will all enjoy the bounty of their labor!! bucksbeautiful.org

Joseph March 20, 2014 at 03:09 am
I don't play the big lottery for one reason. If I'm going to get psyched up over the chances ofRead More winning then I have to be a worry wart too because my chances of dying in a car accident or some other misfortune on the way back home is far greater.
No one won Friday night's jackpot making Tuesday's the sixth largest in lottery history. Patch File Photo

Exactly, Stephen Weber. I buy lottery tickets purely for the chance to fantasize about what I wouldRead More do with all that money. That's the fun part.

Still think the game would be a lot more fun if 400 people won a million.

Sam: Can you be specific as to what you mean by this , "Ron Paul talks a good game but thenRead More gets caught up in the same old Washington."

Interesting how your "Google" machine doesn't work on this stuff.

Does anyone know if this will put a delay on what time the schools will open?

They will most likely wait until the morning to make the decision

Enjoy, Massachusetts! Yeungling Black and Tan is my favorite beer!

I'm thrilled now I don't have to go out the State to get it. I am curious about whether the bottlesRead More will be .05 returnable because out of State they are only glass recyclable.

Sure this beer is from the oldest continuous brewery in the country, but it's just average beer.Read More It's a step above the Bud, Miller, Coors products on the market, but there are thousands of craft beers out there that are much better then Yuengling. Based on the onslaught of ads on TV in the state, it appears they are going after Sam Adams. What they should be doing is going after the Bud, Miller, Coors drinkers to get them to realize beer is suppose to have flavor, and then once those drinkers realize that, they will start moving on to the even better beers out there.
