Don’t Blink!

If I blinked yesterday … or, more precisely, slept later than I did … I would have missed the most gorgeous snowfall I have ever seen. During the wee hours of yesterday morning, a snowfall came, most probably the last one of this Winter season. It was MY kind of…   Read more »

The worst crimes in Collinsville!

When I was little – maybe 5, 6, 7 – and my mother used to drive me through Canton / Collinsville on my way to the doctor in Hartford, I would always look over to the right into Canton Village, feeling some strange attraction. And so, 30 years later, I…   Read more »

Well, let me tell you …

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted something here. Now, why is that? I’ve been asking myself the same thing. Here is a little brain thread. Is it procrastination? Is it because I have nothing to say? Is it because I don’t have time to do it? No –…   Read more »

Gifts from a Tag Sale
