Police...Then and Now
Pittsfield, MA - These two murals were painted in 1998 by William F. Blake and Jay Tobin. They represent police of two different eras. You would think that the bicycle officer would be the older one?
This is Motorcycle Officer Richard L. Naughton in the 1930's.
This is Sergeant Terrance P. Donnelly in the 1990's.

Love from Above
Saturday, March 28, 2009
South Kingstone, RI - As you can see it is covered with these small stones. My family used to camp in Rhode Island during the 1970's and remember this used to be a nudist beach. But it no longer is(read Moonstone Beach the Naked Truth)for the complete story. The beach appears to be closed due to being a nesting ground for the Least Tern and Piping Plover. Also, genital exposure is illegal in Rhode Island.
A closeup of the stones.

Baird's General Store
Cornwall Bridge, CT - This is Baird's General Store, the only store for miles around. It was a Sunday morning when I stopped by and everyone was stopping by for a paper and cup of coffee. Like most general stores everyone seemed to know their neighbor.
The deli where you can get some meat or a sandwich.
You then check out up front. This store was just jam packed with all kinds of stuff. I noticed most general stores are like that.

This is my answer to photograph pioneer Eadweard Muybridge who proved that all of the horses hooves leave the ground at one point in its stride. This proves that my dog Thatcher flys. The way he runs his feet spend a lot of time in the air.
Thatcher is in the front here, as you can see that his older brother needs to have one foot on the ground.

Chef Wayne's Big Mamou
Williamsburg, MA - My wife and I were in Williamsburg a few weeks ago and were looking for a place to eat. We saw this place, I thought it was such an unlikely place to have a Cajun restaurant in a small New England village. We walked inside and was surprised by the number of people inside(parking is in back). When inside I found out there is another Big Mamou in Springfield, MA.
On the wall of the dining room is this Mamou mural.
We made our selections and I can tell you we were not disappointed. I ordered the Blackened Chicken and Shrimp with vegetables,jambalaya rice, and corn bread. The Blackened meat had quite the bite, the way I like it. My wife had the Pulled Pork which she really loved. I would definitely refer this restaurant to anyone and I will return for more delicious Cajun Food!
The kitchen is opened to the dining room.

Misquamicut Beach in Winter
Sunday, March 08, 2009
West Cornwall, CT - I stopped here a few weeks ago by myself and stopped again yesterday with my wife. I had the Baby Back Ribs each time and was not disappointed. The building is set back off the road behind the converted train station (for people of my vintage it is in the old Mother's Cafe). It is run by two people from down south were they know real barbeque, Texas and Mississippi. At this time of year they are on Winter hours Friday, Saturday and Sunday (call ahead to check 860-248-3127). Note: CASH ONLY. This is a great destination, the ride here is beautiful, and just a hop skip and jump from Mohawk Mountain Ski area and just up from the covered bridge.
This is my half rack of baby back ribs in the silver container is Dangerous Dan's Sauce, there is more on the table. It can also be bought by the bottle. The fries were very crispy and in the short mason jar is ketchup to spoon on your fries.
On a table is this container labeled Dan's Hot Sauce. You can put it on your food or if you have bugs at home I hear it will kill roaches :-) (I was told it really not that hot).
