Notes from the Heart...

I get a particularly entertaining email every day called "Urban Word of the Day"
put out by
Urban Dictionary  (I have to keep tabs on what those urbanites are
saying you know!)  A couple of days ago the word of the day was "staycation" ...
which is:
"A vacation that is spent at one's home enjoying all that home and one's home
environs have to offer.
"  That's what we're doing this Memorial Day weekend.   
Whether you're staying put with your own staycation, or traveling, hope you
have a restful and happy holiday weekend. ~ Marcia

Dear Heart:
Thanks for creating and managing this free e-magazine! I heard about it recently on a
community website from a person who referenced your article on
black flies as definitive
proof of what they really are!  J  I was very impressed with what I read and decided to
subscribe.  I think it’s very kind of you do this service for others, and I plan on letting other
friends know about your `Heart of New England’! ~ John

This Week's Stories:

Feature: Ants are No Picnic
How do you spell nuisance? A N T S.  For many of us, ants are a pain, especially
those carpenter ants! They come into our homes looking for sweet and fatty
foods. If only that fat would give them little ant coronaries. Since it doesn't work
that way, how do you banish them?

Recipe: Italian Braised Beef in Wine
Use a good wine to make this dish and serve the same wine with dinner to
complement its intense flavor. This technique works with lamb and Italian or
Provencal herbs, as well as with pork and your favorite flavorings.

From our Archives: Tourist for a My Own Hometown
I lived in the suburbs of New York City almost all my life and it was only when
I was in my 20's and working on 5th Avenue when I finally went to the top of the
Empire State Building. It took me almost two decades as well to ice-skate at
Rockefeller Center, browse the Museum of Natural History, and see a Broadway
play. Now living in New England I still tend to overlook the tourist attractions in
my own backyard.
