Its the tristate area.  Traffic is bad.  I have missed meetings by 3 hours getting stuck in traffic on I-95 or the Merritt Parkway.  So what are the options?  a) sit in traffic and miss the meeting or event b) wait for the next train - assuming your destination is accessible by train c) charter a helicopter and have them grab you in your backyard While the last option may be seem extravagant to some, there's a time and a place, like a Friday afternoon. Nonetheless, its nice to have the option.  Having learned that there have been several illegal landings of helicopters in New Canaan, which has a local ordinance against landing on your property, its an option that would be clearly valued.  In fact, in most of Fairfield County it is not possilbe to land on your property.   Enter 262 Lukes...

Plant Smart with Connecticut Native Plants. Planting native plants in Connecticut or your specific state is a smart move because these plants need less watering, fertilizer and pesticides to flourish. The second huge benefit is that they support the local wildlife providing food and shelter to not only birds but insects, butterflies, bees and ground animals. Fill bird feeder and feed the birds for a day, plant native plants and feed birds for years. Wildlife habitat needs cover to survive, cluster plants creating thickets are good as well as evergreen trees and bushes that provide year round cover. Depending on the region you live in, rainfall, earth components, climate will all have an effect on your garden and yard. Planting Native Plants can help diversify the seasonal food source an...
