This Week's Stories:

Calendar Pick: Annual Ice Harvesting
& Winter Carnival,  Remick Museum
and Farm, Tamworth, NH. Sat., Feb. 12, 2011
Old fashioned ice harvesting, dog sled rides,
snowball throwing contests, snowshoe obstacle
course. Concession stand. Admission: $5 per
person. Members and children under 4 free.

Feature: Love Letters
When was the last time you received a love letter? Or for that matter, when was
the last time you sent one? If you’re lucky, you’re smiling right now. Maybe you
found a sweet little note in your brief case when you got to the office this morning.
Or maybe you sent a quick “i luv u” text message late in the afternoon.

Garden: Orchids for Your Valentine
Orchids are exotic, elegant, and romantic. That's what makes them the perfect gift
for your special someone on Valentine's Day.

Recipe: Chicken Stew with Bacon, Baby Onions, and Crimini Mushrooms
This chicken stew, very reminiscent of the classic French coq au vin, is best made
a day ahead of time, but will work just fine if you cook it a few hours before
you’re going to serve it.
