Bridgewater Country Fair 2010, Bridgewater, CT, Let the fun begin! I wait every year for the Bridgewater Country Fair, with the end of lazy summer days nipping at our heels, Labor Day looming large in front of us, the Bridgewater Country Fair is a great way to celebrate summer, to enjoy a real country fair with animals, tractor pulls, rides, great food and tons of things to buy! This years fair will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 20, 21 & 22, 2010. The fair kicks off with the famous annual Bridgewater Fair Parade on Friday, August 20th at 6:45 pm.

I love the parade, all the firemen decked out in their uniforms, it m...

   Hello to all! Last month we had to spend $$$ to have a virus removed from our computer. I'm not sure how we got the virus, but I can tell you I felt lost during the time I could not get on my system and we would rather spend our $$$ on other things.    In talking with the people that fixed our computer, they stated there are many ways the virus got through and several are mentioned below.  I'm taking the information below seriously, so going forward I am going to try my best not to forward communications such as those mentioned below.  I really don't want any of you to go through what we did.   During this process I also learned that the best way to remove a "pop up" is to strike the "alt key" and the "F4 key" at the same time.  I was told by my security people that a virus can still...

The Bridgewater Country Fair, Bridgewater Connecticut is a great agricultural fair. Although we have had 2 days of rain, mud up to their eyeballs over there, the fair was great fun. I went for a few hours today and took pictures. I wanted to see the oxen pull as I know some of the contestants! The Texas Longhorns and the Dutch Belted are owned by Richard Smith Sr, and are really gentle boys. But watching them work is amazing. The Dutch Belted were first, they are only 2 years old. I remember them when they were babies without horns! They didn't place, but it was good experience for them. The first group started pulling 1600 pounds and ended up pulling 6000 pounds. WOW! Cows, chickens, rabbits, pig races, an elephant, sheep, so many animals to see. Little kids in a pedal tractor pull, th...

On October 23rd, 2005, the Somers Connecticut Congregational Church dedicated what is known as the "Field of Flags" to honor and commemorate the soldiers who lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Memorial Garden Committee also wanted to show support to those serving, and this was their way of doing it. The first Field of Flags had 2,231 American flags back then, as that was the amount of our soldiers who had died. The display has traveled since then, adding more flags to the display as more of our service men and women give up their lives for our freedom. I had never heard of the Field of Flags before, but the other night I was traveling through Bridgewater, and saw the Field of Flags at the Bridgewater Congregational Church. There were people out there taking pictures, reading...

It's clean up day at Lake Lillinonah! This Saturday, May 16th from 9am - 1pm is "Save the Lake Day". Meet at the Route 133 boat launch in Bridgewater at 9:00 am, food and supplies to be provided.   Clean up will be along the shores, and for those who can, on the water. If you can't be there but have cleaned up along the shores, leave the bags of debris at the boat launch on Saturday. Lake Lillinonah stretches along 45 miles of shoreline from New Milford, through Bridgewater and Brookfield, winding it's way through Roxbury, Southbury and Newtown to the Stevens Dam.  Created in 1955 by Connecticut Light and Power for hydroelectricity, it has become a wonderful boating and fishing spot, and created wonderful waterfront homes! 43 miles of the 45 miles are wooded forest, which plays home to ...
