CAFÉ AT 64 MAIN
Winsted, CT – My wife and I stopped in to this café because we saw that they had ice cream. When inside we discovered cozy café with a very eclectic décor; it seemed like this place would be good for everyone.
This is the front of the building blends with the other building so it could be easily missed. The building is from 1880, the first use was the Mechanics Bank. Around 1926 Dr. English started a medical practice, followed by Dr. Downing and then Dr. Smith until 1976. Various other businesses occupied the building until 2005.

Winsted CT - The restaurant is basically in three rooms. This is the front room, the one you first come into. It has memorabilia on the walls but doesn’t feel cluttered as you might think. It actually has a very comfortable relaxing feel to it.
The lunch menu has a large number of exotic sounding sandwiches, wraps, and salads. I think they would have something for everyone. They even have a selection of sandwiches on Grilled Tandoori Naan (Indian bread). They also serve dinner, I saw a Pork Loin Special on the board when I was there. Next time I go there I think I will have a Cyclone sandwich. Click here for Lunch menu and dinner menu
The next room is the coffee and ice cream room. They have a full service Espresso bar, with all your favorite espresso drinks. For all you people visiting from Brooklyn, they have authentic Egg Cream made with U-Bet syrup. Also on the menu are Italian and French sodas
This is the last room which follows the feel of the rest of the restaurant. There is art displayed from students of Northwestern Connecticut Community College. Overall it looks like a great place to hang out and enjoy a meal or just relax with a latte. On Friday nights they have music and I’m not sure what night but they have “Open Mike” night.

APPLE AND ANTS
This just goes to show I will photograph just about anything, but for some reason I like it. There is a funny story with this photo. I bent down to get a close-up of the apple and when I looked up there was a State Trooper's car stopped to see what I was doing. I bet he was thinking, this guy will photograph anything!

CAN'T THERE FROM HERE
I saw this sign on one of trips. It is probably used in other parts of the country but around here it comes from a N.E. joke to long to print here.

Bloomfield, CT - I was sitting at a traffic light this morning and I looked over and saw this sight. I quickly grabbed my camera and snapped a few photos before the light changed. We are getting to the end of the foliage season, we had rain and a wind storm that removed many of the leaves around my house.

Today's photo is the Scott House in Granville MA. Click here to see the older photo. If you look at the left photo, the smaller house to the right of the Scott House is the house I live in now.

CHIEF KONKAPOT FOUNTAIN
Lee, MA - This fountain is on the green in Lee Massachusetts. I took this photo of the front of the statue and when I researched it I found that the interesting part is on the back. So I went back and photographed the back on Sunday.
Instead of writing about this fountain myself, I found this great write up at this website. CLICK HERE.
