Dreaming of sailing away at sunset...⛵️🌥🧡
I just finished reading James Howard Kunstler’s witty and insightful The Geography of Nowhere, and I’m grateful to have recently seen the effects of Vermont’s wise long-term land-use principles he describes- such as an anti-billboard act, a ban on construction above a certain elevation, and a land trust that preserves farmland for working farms- for myself. There’s no debating it: Vermont is breathtaking, and it’s refreshing to know that there is at least one state whose citizens have made preserving its resources, both natural and aesthetic, a priority.

Greeted by Maine’s 90-degree sunshine this weekend ☀️

2 big names land on the active/PUP list... DeAndre Hopkins and Sony Michel both are set to open camp on the PUP (Physically Unable To Perform). .
DeAndre Hopkins is going to be fine, this is just a precaution and managing his workload. All reports I have read stat he should be "Full Go" by start of season. He is and will continue to be a stud and one of the best Wide Receivers in the game. If you were planning on drafting Hopkins, don't let this report stop you, Draft him with confidence! .
Sony Michel I believe will be ok but his situation is a little more cloudy. I believe the PUP has been the plan all along but unlike Hopkins, Michel is in a crowded positional room. The Patriots have a stable of running backs capable of taking the workload. Michel has had some injuries dating back to high school, tore acl in high school, broke forearm (non-football), multiple knee strains from college to NFL. I think he will be ok but if you draft Michel, draft Damien Harris for insurance. .
The preseason active/PUP list is a list for players that have not been fully medically cleared. They cannot take part in training camp practices but can be cleared/activated at anytime.
If you're looking for a fresh look for the summer season, we recommend cooler tones. Lighter hues replace deep, dark styles, making balayage a great low maintenance hair color option. ✨☀️

@alfredyankovic tonight! Always a great show and great guy to talk to!
Au programme aujourd'hui un vrai petit déjeuner américain dans un "dinner". Vu sa tête de l'extérieur je ne serais jamais rentrée mais comme rien n'est laissé au hasard 🤣 j'avais l'adresse avant de venir et les commentaires étaient très corrects ! Nous avons donc poussé la porte ce matin pour nous retrouver dans une "anti chambre" (la partie en bâche en plastique sur la photo) où on est prié d'attendre. Et puis la porte du "dinner" s'ouvre et qqun crie "next" . On s'est donc installé à une table avec un petit Juke box et nous avons choisi, non sans mal, notre menu. C'était bon mais ceux qui ont pris du salé, comme d' hab c'était très gras. Et la serveuse est revenue à notre table avec la cafetière de café pour nous resservir. Comme les vrais 🤣🤣
Et puis nous sommes descendus via les chemins de campagne et avons traversé de jolis villages dans ce qu'on appelle les Berkshire.
Dernière trempette dans le Lake Waramaug.
Mais le défi de la journée est encore à venir: il faut faire rentrer dans 4 valises ce qu'on entasse dans la voiture depuis un mois 😱 À l'heure où j'écris ces lignes c'est pas encore gagné !

Sunday.. our last full day of our Maine trip. Portland check-in was not till 4pm, so we went first to Old Orchard Beach. There are 7 miles of beach her.. a pier.. dozens of restaurants.. and Palace Playland Amusement Center with rides, games etc. operating since 1902, it’s the largest Amusement Pier in New England. We goofed around, taking photos.. and enjoyed swimming on this 93-degree day. A bit nostalgic for me because as kids we went to Orchard Beach in the Bronx. And, my mom and dad met at Orchard Beach too.
