  The annual Festival of Trees has occured this year and I thought that I would share it with you all.  It is a festival of holiday celebrations donated by local community members and companies to the Wadsworth Athaneum Museum, which puts is on display for the first two weeks in December.  All items are auctioned off to benefit those in need.  They have trees, wreaths, menorahs, cultural celebrations, art work etc all for viewing.  The Museum also has a kids craft room where young ones can go and create a craft item and get their hand painted with a wintertime icon such as a snowman, reindeer etc. This is an annnual event for my daughter and I as we enjoy checking out the local creativty that has been brewing for some phenomenal art pieces.  You also get admission to the museum once yo...

2010 Hartford Festival of Light Continues My last stop this evening was at Bushnell Towers, a condominium complex across from Bushnell Park. Since I was so close to the park I decided to drive by on my way home.

A blonde was recently fired from an M&M factory for throwing away the Ws. Therefore, she needed a new job to support herself. After going around town asking if anyone needed work done, she found a man who needed a painter."I'm here for the paint job," she said."Alright," said the man. "Here is the paint and your brush. I want you to paint my porch behind the house."The blonde immediately went to work painting. Within an hour, she was done and decided to put on a second coating.After she finished, she returned to the man for her pay. She said with satisfaction, "I not only completed the job, but I even put on two coats of paint! By the way, that isn't a porsche out back. It's a new BMW.  ☺ MattToll Free: 888-NCFIXER (623-4937)Toll Free Fax: 888-FAX-4020 (329-4020)Local: 860-282-6181330 R...
