With so many Post Offices closing due to the failing economy and other ways of communication in our ever changing world, I thought it only fitting to point you all in the direction of a great blog that covers the history of the Post Office. US Postal History I hope they don't do away with home delivery and make us all get P.O. Boxes!

Those who know me know that I have a brown thumb. I have killed more house plants than any other person on this planet. I just recently tried to fertilize my beautiful assortment of thriving porch plants - and killed all but one. (Must have been the OLD fertilizer I used.) So, to see this garden ACTUALLY PRODUCE VEGETABLES, is a blessing from above. Please say prayers, cross fingers, etc. that it will continue to do so. Thank you!

The Sandwich Heritage Museums and Gardens was such a wonderful experience! Not only are the grounds and gardens exceptionally beautiful, the different museums were interesting and well cared for. From the Antique Car Museum, Art Museum (with a working carousel!)to the American History Museum, there was almost too much to see in one visit! I've posted some pics for a few of you (Buck - the antique motorcycles, Lou - some artwork, Jim - some antique guns) but I hope you enjoy seeing all of the photos. There was a labyrinth, a maze and a gorgeous flume, and check out the next to the last pic, a not so shy butterfly posed for several seconds so I could get the shot! It was a great day!
