Vintage Vehicles That Can Inspire Dreams & Bring Back Memories

Truly a legendary piece of American automotive history, the Hudson Hornet was only manufactured from 1951 through 1954. It was one of several Hudson models, but by far the most popular and sought after.

With only four years of production there just aren’t many of them available or even in existence.

Baking as a Competitive Sport (And a Fundraising Tool)

Baking cake is not a specialty of mine. For some reason, my cakes are never as successful as my bread.

Which means this article will not provide you with a foolproof cake technique, other than to suggest that box cakes are much better than you think they’re going to be and often in fact are much moister than a from-scratch version.

She’s So Fine, My ‘49

The season for exotic vintage cars has begun. Lans Christensen will share some special items throughout the summer, including this award-winning 1949 Chevy truck, on display at the race track at Lime Rock Park for the Royals’ Garage Car Show over Memorial Day weekend.

The Clark Art Institute will have a show of the work and life of Auguste Rodin from June to September, including  “The Small Walking Man,” from circa 1899.

Understanding the Work and World of Rodin

The largest exhibition of work by Auguste Rodin in 40 years will open at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Mass., on June 18. It will remain there until Sept. 18, after which it will travel to the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Ga.
