"Two hundred and no tax"
Posted 9/6/2011 - Marla Rutherford | 6 comment(s)
Driving past barbed wire fences with creosoted posts chucked firmly and so precisely forming geometric squared pastures, seeing fastidiously white buildings offsetting food sourced gardens, clothes lines whipping with white linens, blue shirts, bib overalls (no doubt washed in that order), yes, I was delighting in our local Amish community. . . . .

First Day of School in Michigan on Slashed Funding
Posted 9/6/2011 - Janet Glaser | 2 comment(s)
for public schools. Michigan waits until after the Labor Day holiday to start school in order to rake in as much tourist cash as possible. Michigan is strapped for money.  This year, in our small public school district, our budget was cut by 2.3 million dollars. . . . . Read More

The LIST: 911 and beyond
Posted 9/5/2011 - Eileen Hopkins | 3 comment(s)
Much on the TV lately about 911: the bungling, the sadness, the heroes, the aftermath.  As a Canadian, I still remember the jolt hearing the beginning of the story as my radio alarm came on.  I couldn't tear myself away from the TV as I prepared for work that AM and I heard later of many Canadians who had to pull over in tears as they heard the news in their cars on their morning commute.  Shocking.  The aftermath of fear still holds the world ransome.  Atten . . . .

Camp Sick
Posted 9/4/2011 - Janet Glaser | 5 comment(s)
Just returned from our week of camping on the shores of Lake Michigan. I am camp sick. You know instead of home sick? I am camp sick. We had good weather most of the week and the grandsons were fun and trying all wrapped up in one bundle of boys--four to be exact. . . . . Read More

What happened to maternity clothes?
Posted 9/4/2011 - Joanne Bolivar | 4 comment(s)
Life is getting back to normal after a wonderful vacation.  There were many pregnant women walking around and all the more noticeable because we were in a very sunny recreational area.  I should say they really stood out with huge tummies either constrained by tight tee shirts or hanging out bare.....hmm. . . . .

My Son and the Little Cat
Posted 9/4/2011 - Christy Steiger | 5 comment(s)
My son and his girlfriend rescued a tiny, limping cat that didn't have the energy to run away from them. He called me -- we've had 20 cats over the years -- to get some advice. I suggested a few ways to help, but he ended up bring over the white and gray cat for me to see. . . . . Read More

Son in wheelchair staying home for first time SURVIVED!
Posted 9/3/2011 - Joanne Bolivar | 4 comment(s)
We just walked into the house after being gone for the last week.  The house is still standing, our son is alive and well and he managed to eat while we were gone!  I only texted once as per his request to not " check up on me "......he did good. . . . . Read More

We Are Vermont
Posted 9/3/2011 - Suzanne Caplan | 4 comment(s)
It is a lovely state and a humbe one at that. Beautiful scenery although not a lot of commerce. No arrogant Texas here. And the citizens seem to be a bit older and far wiser that the rest of us. Some states without power are up in arms as if restoring old, out of date above ground power lines is easy. . . . . Read More

Back to School
Posted 9/2/2011 - Eileen Hopkins | 2 comment(s)
Our campus is once again buzzing with students - looking lost, giggling in girl groups and swaggering in guy groups while texting their best friend.  The campus has also been full of worried looking Mom's and grimacing Dad's with boxes and ironing boards under their arms moving the first year students into the dorms.  You can always tell the difference between newcomers and old timers: the presence or lack of parents in attendance.  Change is in the air - a fresh, exciting time . . . .
