Autumn in the North Cemetery.

Sixty miles west of Boston, Massachusetts there is the small New England town of Sturbridge. Located at the junction of I-90 (The Mass Pike), and I-84 it has become known as the "Crossroads of New England". The town was first settled over 300 years ago, and like other small New England towns it has grown just enough over the years to be in a difficult place today. How do we embrace the future without forgetting how we got to our present? How do we attract the right kind of growth, and maintain who we are? And, what about our culture out here in Central Massachusetts?

These pages will cause one to think about how to protect what we have, our future direction, and how to move on in the very best way.

Those thoughts, and other ramblings, will hopefully inspire more thought, conversation, action, and occasionally a smile...

...seems to be working so far

Hobbyist Looking For Like Minded Folks

Every once in a while I get an email from a reader that is worth posting. This morning  received one from a gentleman that has the right idea about beating the winter doldrums, and although the snow will soon be gone, this activity is one that can also be enjoyed all year round.  If you, or someone you know, would like to join Mr. Skinner, he has been kind enough to include his email address at the end of his message.

Have fun!

"I’m an amateur wood ship model builder. I would like to join or form a group of individuals with similar interests. I would appreciated you posting my interest and refer people to me for follow up.
My current projects are the “Sultana” and the “Benjamin W. Latham”. I have completed a New York Pilot boat and a whaleboat.
