Tales of Old Ghosts Of New England

It’s called “New” England but our region is, of course, one of the oldest parts of the U.S., so of course there are more stories about ghosts and ghouls and the unexplained here than there are in newer, shinier parts of the country. 

The Bardavon Theater in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., is celebrating the 50th anniversary (and what a long strange trip …) of the Grateful Dead’s “American Beauty” album with a virtual concert on Nov. 1.

A Virtual Glimpse into an Enchanted Conifer Garden

This is the time of year when we begin to think of evergreens and pine cones in preparation for the winter months and snow and holiday-season wreaths. 

Just in time, there will be an online presentation about conifers sponsored by the Sherman, Conn., library as part of the Great Hollow Invitational Art Show.
