Worth Quoting

"Staying inside the house breeds a sort of insanity always.  
Every house is in this sense a hospital.  A night and
a forenoon is as much confinement to those wards as
I can stand -- and then I must go outdoors."

Henry David Thoreau
Journal, Volume II (1856)  ==>

Notes from the Heart...

Greetings from The Heart of New England

The former owner of our home must have had
a remarkable passion for rhubarb because they
were placed in conspicuous locations all over the
yard, like prized ornamental flowers -- one even
in the center of the lawn! (I've since moved it to
the side of the garage).  If you also have a lot
of rhubarb and can't bear to make yet another pie,
you'll find this week's recipe a refreshing way
to use your bumper crop:  
Rhubarb Iced Tea ...
I will be making it this week now that the weather
is summer-like.  

You may also want to try our
Rhubarb-Strawberry Coffee Cake recipe
Rhubarb Clafouti.

Feature Story

Few everyday individuals ever get a chance to fly a bird, or experience the
thrill of a live tail chase.  That is why Nancy Cowan, decided to open up the
NH School of Falconry, in September of 2005.  It is the first and only school of
its kind in New Hampshire, and one of only a handful along the entire eastern
seaboard.  Read story at:
