March Madness Becomes April Sadness

Posted by Bob LaFlamme on Fri, Apr 15, 2016

I recently had the opportunity to submit picks in a March Madness competition that our insurance company provided online and for free. First prize was an all-expense-paid trip to Las Vegas for two. To make a long story short, I was in first place going into the final game between Villanova and North Carolina.

New England Wood Pellet Spring Special

Posted by Bob LaFlamme on Fri, Mar 25, 2016

I have been reading the book titled American Canopy by Eric Rutkow, which is a history of forests in America since the European Settlers arrived. It’s an interesting story that starts with the King’s Pines in New England, through the demand for building materials as the nation was expanding, the fungus and blights that killed the chestnuts and the elms, to the conservation of forests and the creation of the U.S. Forest Service. It’s a great history lesson that gives a clear understanding of one of the natural resources that made our country great. I strongly recommend that you read this book!
