CT High Point

On our way home Sunday, J & I hiked to the highest point in CT, which is on the way up Mt. Frissell (in Mass) at a whopping 2,380 feet.This was a nice, short hike (3ish miles), but it was hotter than hell. This was our 10th high point. Sometimes finding the trailhead to the…

Earth Day

As I sit here, on Earth Day, recycling my work papers, I am pondering an important question. First let me admit that I cannot kick the habit of printing out all the work-related journal articles and reports to read and underline. I am just not an online reader. I never want an iPad or Kindle…

Vegas

J woke from his slumber finally and filled me in on all the details of the bachelor party in Vegas and I thought you would all like to know and see pictures. So here goes … Did you get all that? Just like the movie The Hangover, only worse! Weren’t those pictures wild and crazy?

More movie reviews

I have more reviews of the Oscar winners! Go here for 1981-present (although, we have yet to see this year’s winner, The Hurt Locker). Of the 82 award-winning movies, we have seen and rated 57!!! More than halfway to our goal! We will probably be slowing down as summer comes, but I think we will…

Bride-to-be

NHBound had her shower Friday night! J & I cannot wait for this wedding in June between NHBound and Mouth … we’ve been waiting for 7+ years! This is her third shower (one in Phoenix, one in Denver and one in NH), so she is becoming quite an expert with the bow hat. Right after…

Just a tease …

Well, it looks like our days of illegal cable are coming to an end. Lately, channels have just been disappearing and yesterday, J noticed ESPN was gone. ESPN is pretty much the only reason we entertained the thought of cable. I don’t know if our issues have something to do with the digital converter box,…

March Madness

And I’m not talking about basketball … We bid Alaska3 goodbye as she wrapped up her Spring Break with the trip to Burlington, 3 snowboarding adventures, St. Patty’s feasting and overall cousin-to-cousin bonding. We absolutely loved hosting her and we hope our future is full of hosting college students, whether it be exchange students or…
