Back in the Running!

I used to run. I was never a serious runner–meaning I never did a marathon or anything like that. But it was my preferred form of exercise for many years. A comfortable, fun run for me was about four miles. I would run almost every day. Loved it. And then I moved to a place with […]

A Big Brew, A Film Festival and Being Green in NH

Sixth Annual Greenerborough Living Expo and Festival Being green is really cool and all, but my reason for choosing the Sixth Annual Greenerborough Green Living Expo and Festival to be a part of this blog are entirely selfish and somewhat whimsical.

Bug Juice

Don’t know what bug juice is? You obviously didn’t have a childhood. Bug juice is THE beverage of choice at summer camp. Didn’t go to summer camp? You most definitely didn’t have a legit childhood. I’m bias, I know. (I don’t know what bug juice consists of. A lot of sugar for sure.) Summer camp holds […]
