Friday Flags in Waterbury CTFor those that care, there is nothing as uplifting as seeing our flag fluttering in a breeze. As the wind swirls, the flag will wave as if the breeze is just there to appreciate the view.Such was the case this past weekend as the winds were strong   in our area. I happened to pass the East Mountain golf course in Waterbury, CT and the tall pole with the flag waving was hard to miss.Many a day as a kid, we would come down the 18th fairway and that flag would stand tall over the clubhouse.As one of the oldest public courses in this area of the state, the East Mountain course still offers a challenge, and for me, I don't remember those holes being so long.Friday Flags in Waterbury CT

 Washington Park Community Center, Waterbury CTI grew up in the South End of Waterbury CT near Washington Park. The community center was a place for Friday night dances, the concession stand is where we all got cold beverages in the summer and hot cocoa in the winter while ice skating on the flooded baseball fields.On the green in front of the building is the flagpole as well as a restored WW! German cannon.It once rested in another part of the park and as kids we would climb all over it and pretend to be in battles. The park is very active at all times of year and adjacent to the community center is a recreational pool that is very busy on warm summer days.  Other areas of the park are ideal for a summer picnic and just relaxing under the trees.Friday Flags  Washington Park Community C...

Easter Wishes to All 2022For most Christians, today, Easter Sunday is a day of celebration, and all will attend church services as a way of giving thanks. We attended our vigil services Saturday so as to allow my wife time to prepare the dinner we were hosting. The service was well attended and all were happy to wish the greetings for a Happy Eater even if a little early. However you spend the day enjoy with those you are near and give a special thought to those that were not able to be there.  Easter Wishes to All 2022

Hello Old Friend:  Haven't Seen You in a WhileWe are into a very cold winter here in Connecticut and with temperatures all below freezing it is tough to get out and renew acquaintances.As I was driving around earlier today, I went past a golf course, and I was sad to see what is usually green all white.I know you're getting visitors as there were plenty of footprints in the snow and people were walking their dogs. I saw trails from cross country skiers so you're allowing people to get exercise. Just those of us who prefer the grass are shut off until the spring.The carts are all corralled and when the time comes they'll get a fresh wash and a full tank, and be ready for those that don't care to enjoy the game as a purest would. So, until sometime in April, rest well and I'll be back to ...

Technology Can be OverusedThe advent of the Internet has offered conveniences that would have been impossible to imagine 30-40 years ago. Everything we do today utilizes the advances and conveniences made possible by technology.  Young people get a jump on phone use and can be obsessed with its use to the extent that they might be standing next to each other and inter-texting.  It's as if they don't know how to speak.I just had the occasion to get exposed to its overuse.One of my clients had inspection issues that needed the use of a plumber.  The seller accepted the issues and said they would get it repaired before closing. Almost all of the issues were satisfactorily resolved except for a sewer pipe leak, which was still puddling water.The invoices for repairs were presented at closin...
