Notes from the Heart...

I must admit that while I have seen Stephen Huneck's lab prints before, I had no
idea that he was a Vermont artist.  He will be exhibiting in Quechee Lakes,
Vermont in February...and reading from his latest book,
Sally Gets a Job (see our
Calendar Pick of the Week, below, for details).  I've also added his work to The
Heart of New England art gallery (see box below).   ~M.

Recipe: New England Pea Soup
This New England favorite makes a hearty lunch and, with a salad and some crusty
bread, is a welcome dinner as well, so give this healthy and economical recipe a try.
As I write this, sub zero weather is predicted for tonight, followed by snow in the
morning - weather my mother would have said is perfect for hot bowls of pea soup!

From our Archives: Getting There...From Here
When I first moved to New Hampshire from New York I was told the old adage:
"You can't get there from here." Over the twenty years I've lived here I believed this
to be true. I never thought I could get "there."  I wasn't even sure where it was. I
didn't even know anyone who'd been "there" or anyone that could tell me what it
looked like.
