LIKE NIAGARA FALLS BUT SMALLER
Seymour, CT - I was at my in-laws house last weekend and I asked if there was anything to photograph around Seymour. My father-in-law thought for a while and said there was a small waterfall just south of town on the Naugatuck River he said, "Just like Niagara...but smaller". Well, in a way, I guess it is.

SCENIC ROUTE 8
Naugatuck/Beacon Falls, CT - Between Naugatuck and Beacon Falls Connecticut, just south of the Naugatuck Chemical, is what I think is the most scenic part of Rte.8. I think the reason why it is so nice is because it is too rocky to build so it has been spared being made into a place to put a factory. The Naugatuck River runs beside the highway and once was so polluted that the rocks on the side of the river were black from chemicals. Now it is being cleaned up and even stocked with salmon.

Granville, MA - Today was the Granville-Tolland Lions Club annual spaghetti dinner.
The kitchen crew at the ready.
It was a packed house, evryone showed up for the meal.
A salute to the "real work" the dishwashers; I got out of that this year. The guy in white is our Executive Chef for the meal, he also made all the sauce and meatballs.
Our Viennese Dessert Table...OK it's pie, but we had four kinds!

HOLLAND MA LIBRARY
Holland, MA - This is the Holland Library and according to the numbers on the front, was built in 1912. I checked the Holland MA website and they have a photo of the library with a caption that the photo was taken circa 1900, in the scheme of things 1900 is close to 1912.The roof is slate which is kind of cool.
On the sign is this little guy reading a book.

HOLLAND MA - WAR MEMORIAL
Holland, MA - I saw this memorial in front of the school in Holland MA. What struck me was the number of names; Holland looks to be a very small town. This must have been almost all the boys in town. If you notice there are a few with muliple last names, which must have been from the same family or at least cousins.

TAX PAYMENT BOX - HOLLAND MA
Holland, MA - I was in Holland MA over the weekend taking a few photos, more in the next few days, and noticed this box in front of the town offices. It is for paying your taxes. It must save on postage!
I think only in a small town you could use this method.

ACORN TOP AND FROZEN DROPS
I was out walking in the woods after the ice storm we had and these are the two images I came away with. I decided to post these after watching the movie, "Across the Universe", the movie was bizarre and I guess so are the photos. But the weird part is that I took them before watching the movie.

IS THAT NORTH?
How do you know which way is North in the winter? The side with the ice. Not really; well I guess there is a hint of truth to it. In the woods the icy side is the side the shadow is on, but it could be a shadow of another tree so that doesn't work so well. Another thing, see the moss growing on both sides...I guess that blows that theory also.
The ice is the South on one tree and North on the other.

FEBRUARY ICE STORM
Friday, February 01, 2008
Farmington, CT - I had a few minutes before I had to show up for work so I stopped by Batterson Park to see what was up. The park was closed but I snapped a few photos. A few of a tree near the water and some of geese way out in the middle of the pond where there was some open water.
