The Elias Child House

We spent a lovely night at the Elias Child House some time ago. I highly recommend it for your lodging needs in northeast Connecticut.

150th Anniversary of the Civil War

The Connecticut Post has an article out about an incident in Bridgeport during the Civil War, in which veterans of the Union Army clashed with local "copperheads." I was quoted several times in the article.

Savino Winery

This tiny tasting room, perhaps the smallest in Connecticut, is hidden away in Woodbridge, just a mile from the New Haven border. Check it out if you get the chance!

We tried out our new walking sticks yesterday, hiking five or six miles from our doorstep to the top of Mad Mare's Hill and then back around through Bethany to our home. A wonderful success.
