Massachusetts Celebrates Patriots Day - April 16, 2012
 

 
 
Here in historic Massachusetts, the third Monday of the month of April is set aside for celebrating the anniversary of Paul Revere's ride and the battles of Lexington and Concord.  Known as Patriot's Day, this Monday holiday is earmarked by several longstanding traditions.
The most well-known event is, of course, the Boston Marathon.  This 26-mile race from Hopkinton to Boston draws all kinds of people, from elite athletes to fund-raising bandits.  Residents along the race route set up bleachers and hold all-day parties, cheering on the runners as they … (1 comments)

Tick Alert for 2012:  Extra Caution Required


 
Living in the Northeast part of the country, we are always on watch for ticks.  These are the tiny critters that transmit Lyme disease to humans, dogs, and other mammals.
According to The Wall Street Journal, 2012 is expected to be a high alert year for tick activity.  Warm winter temperatures and decreased low field mice population are two of the primary causes of the increased potential for finding a tick on yourself or your pets.  I can vouch for that:  In the middle of March, after raking leaves, my husband … (5 comments)

August 2011:  Mid-summer and the picking is easy, especially if you visit Ragged Hill Orchard  in West Brookfield, MA.  Located atop a country hill, Ragged Hill Orchard provides a wonderful place to escape and wander the hills.  This time of year, the blueberries are ripe and ready, and the red raspberries are sweet and at peak.
On my recent visit to Ragged Hill, we filled buckets of plump berries.  The orchard owners provide buckets with roped … (5 comments)

Triathlon Training: Coming Down the Home Stretch
 
 

In early May, I made the decision to participate in the 2011 Danskin Triathlon in Webster, MA.  This is an annual event that draws thousands of women around New England.  It is a huge fund raiser for breast cancer research, and also celebrates those who are survivors of cancer.  Women of all ages and abilities join in to challenge themselves.
This triathlon consists of a 1/2 mile swim, 12 mile bike, and 3 mile run.  This is considered a Sprint triathlon, the shortest of various triathlon races.
My race is on … (8 comments)

Alert! Massachusetts Highways are Jammed with Summer Travelers
 

 
Driving down the Massachusetts Turnpike (I-90) at mid-day today, it was obvious that summer holiday traffic was already in full force.  The toll booths were slowed down, the on-ramps were busy, and the rest stop had a line-up for parking spaces. 
People have wasted no time in getting packed and started on their summer holidays.
What does this mean?  For anyone traveling into and out of Massachusetts for the next two months, be prepared for slow speeds and waiting in line.  The Mass Turnpike is a major travel artery, bringing … (5 comments)

Down and Dirty at Hyland Orchards - Sturbridge MA
 
June 11, 2011:  Today was the Socks for Siberia Festival at Hyland Orchards.  This year I participated in the "Rock Your Socks Off" Trail Run through the orchards, and what a blast.  This was a trail race up and down the rows of apple trees and into the woods surrounding the orchards.  Having had rain all morning, the trail was slippery, squishy, and muddy.  We ran up slopes, through rocky ruts, and over logs.  I finished the race covered in mud from the knees down, finding cover under the pavilion before … (3 comments)

31 Day Challenges:  Some Pain, Plenty of Gain


Today is May 31st, and this day marks the end of two great challenges for me.
First, is the end of the 31-Days of May Blogging Challenge.  The goal was to simply write at least one blog post per day, excluding market reports and property listings (unless such posts included outstanding local information).  I've done several of these challenges before, and there are days that the writing comes easy, and there are days when I am starting into a blank screen at 11:30 pm.
But the benefits far outweigh the pain in such … (10 comments)
