President Obama Visits Vermont!

Image
Before a crowd of about 4500 people, President Obama laid out his plan to get Vermonters to vote for him in November. His speech was very inspirational and the crowd was pumped to be seeing their first President in 15 (when then President Clinton paid a visit to the state.)

The Vermont Democrats were out in force:
Burlington Mayor Elect Miro Weinberger Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin Vermont's US Senator Pat Leahy
But a lot of folks were there not only to see and hear the President but also there to see and hear Vermont native Grace Potter and her band the Nocturnals. Even the President of the United States was impressed with their performance!

Fans of President Barack Obama are counting down to his visit to Vermont on Friday.

But Preparing for a presidential visit is both an honor and a top secret headache for local law enforcement. 

"Many details we can't share just because of the security risk. Many we don't know. Events like this really evolve up until the last minute," said South Burlington Police Chief Trevor Whipple.

The South Burlington police are working with the U.S. Secret Servic…

Back in March 1999, Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band performed at the Park Plaza in Boston MA to help out Buffett's friend, Don Henley, raise money and awareness about the Walden Woods Project. Jay and I were lucky to get tickets and I brought along my old video camera.

I've posted those videos on my YouTube Channel: Jimmy Buffett Playlist

A sample video, the encore FINS

Maple Syrup Making 101
Weathersfield VT
Spring 2012
By Nancy Nutile-McMenemy

Every spring the good folks of Vermont, most with severe cabin fever, hang out all kinds of buckets to collect the sweet sap that runs through the maple trees around the state. These are the same trees that provide such amazing color during Fall Foliage, but in the spring before the buds or leaves, it's the sap that provides joy to the people of Vermont and beyond. "Liquid Gold" many call it and at today's prices it surely is liquid gold!

So what is this tradition all about..after this very strange winter of 2011-2012 it is time to try to collect enough sap to make some Maple Syrup (I still have about 1/2 gallon in the freezer from last year's sap run.) This year the sap ran in February but we didn't tap at that time thinking it would be a quick run. We held off until the traditional tapping time of Town Meeting Day (March 6 this year). Once daytime temperatures start reaching into the up…

Old Negatives and Photos: Scanned, Uploaded

Image
Busy scanning and uploading negatives and photos from 30+ years of photography. The digital photography age makes things so much easier. Back in the film day you took the photos then you either processed the film yourself or you sent it out to be done.
WOW, what a difference a few decades makes!
