From the Editor: Hi folks… below are the links and connections added to our links and connections page… 

Post’s can get “lost” in a weblog making it difficult at times to locate the information you are looking for… Hence our Links and Connections Page… be sure to check it out if you are looking for a service or product…. 🙂 

New Links for August 2012: 

Hubby and I love the Adirondacks and have for the last 5 years or so gone there for a vacation… we both love the mountains and the forests that make up the Adirondack park. We enjoy hiking the trails and I have collected some “patches” representing the hikes we have done, which now reside on my Jean Jacket…. 🙂 

There are a few shops within our Vacation range that we have visited over the years and these we would like to share with you. While they are not local to us, they still represent a community, and are mostly small business trying to make a go of it…. Please view the three listed below, and visit them if you feel inclined if you are ever in the area…. 🙂
