News from the VNC

Afternoon tea with the duchess was an elegant affair. The costumes and hats were intriguing and I wasn’t aware that I liked cucumber sandwiches. You’re never too old to try something new.

Energy East may be the “Key”

What do you do if you have the goose that lays the golden egg, and you have no way to sell the egg? This, in essence, is what is rearing it’s ugly head right here in our back yard.
