  Middlesex Chamber Business After Work, At Powder Ridge Mountain Park & Resort.  I always have my eye out for networking events, and there is a good one scheduled for Wednesday, January 10th, at the Powder Ridge Mountain Park & Resort.   This will be the second time the Powder Ridge Mountain Park & Resort will host a Middlesex Chamber Business After Work Event.  Everyone of the Middlesex Chamber Business After Work Events are so well done, and this one was as well last year.

      Winter is here and the trees are now covered with snow from the snow storm this weekend as you can see in my Final Blog Of The 2017 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middlefield, CT.  With the arrival of Winter in Connecticut, my Progression Of Fall Colors series I started six years ago is now completed.  I had intended for my previous blog in this series the "Eighth Blog Of The 2017 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middlefield, CT"., to be the final blog in this series for this year.  But a few people requested to see this sight once snow had arrived, and the trees were covered with snow.  So I decided to post one more blog to comply with their request. The first two years of this series the pictures were of a farm which is only about a minute walk from my house.  Three years ago I dec...

      Winter is here and the bare trees are proof of that as you can see in my Eighth Blog Of The 2017 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middlefield, CT.  With the arrival of Winter in Connecticut, which means my Progression Of Fall Colors series I started six years ago is coming to an end. The first two years of this series the pictures were of a farm which is only about a minute walk from my house.  Three years ago I decided to change the location for the 2014 Progression Of Fall Color Series to a lake about 5 minutes from my house on RT17.  I tried that location for two years, but the colors were not as good as I expected them to be.  So last year I decided to change locations again to this present location on a site of Lyman's Orchards in Middlefield CT. As I have done for the last six...

    The Middlefield Fire Explorers will be hosting the Middlefield Fire Explorers 2017 Pancake Breakfast Tomorrow, May 7th from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  This an excellent way to support this very worth youth organization, and get to eat some very tasty pancakes at the same time. One of the ways for our youth to stay off the streets and out of trouble, is to make sure they are involved with positive, constructive organizations like the Middlefield Fire Explorers.  These young men aspire to be Firemen one day, and as Fire Explorers they acquire skills which will help them become Firemen later in life. As Fire Explorers these young men and women also participate in community service projects in the town, as well as other activities which benefit the town they are located in.  So I would hi...
