How to look good, feel great and enjoy the end of summer.  There's only two days left!  My how time flies.  Put on your comfiest pair of socks, hiking boots and cut-off of shorts and top.  Head on over to Tulmeadow Farm in Simsbury and grab your favorite flavor of ice cream on a sugar cone and go for a walk in the Simsbury Land Trust (right behind the store)! Soak in the waning sunshine and feel great!  Bring a friend or your lover and laugh a little, it is proven to reduce stress.  Better yet, treat your folks or grandparents and spend some time in the great outdoors.

Follow Rivers | Water is Life | Editorial

Wednesday, September 7, 2016

New England has always been lush and full of summer rain.  Not this summer.  I've never seen such dry river beds, streams and ponds.  Water is life.  Cherish and protect it.  Right now in the Dakotas, Native Americans are fighting for their sacred land and water rights and trying to stop the Dakota Access pipeline.  Treaties and promises continue to be broken.  To learn more google this hashtag #NoDAPL and spread the word.  When will we stop destroying our planet and it's people?  This is bad news for all of us if this pipeline goes through.
