Days are getting longer, school breaks come and go, clocks move forward... sure signs this winter will end; I promise! But it is a good time to enjoy our new TI Life.

The Twichell's, Martha Grimes' presents her Sport and Spectacle - Speedboat Racing on the St. Lawrence - interesting yesterday and today.  And the first of three articles with, An Augustus Hinckley Story,

There is good news in Cole Shoal Lighthouse the Irony and the Rebuild by Mike Milne. and John Peach introduces Elaine Tack's special video in "It's Hard to be a Tern"

Also, The Marina - Rita - yes your favorite, Tequila and marina life by Nicole Hartshorn, Sudoku Puzzle #50 by Dan LeKander (Yes, 50 - how many have you completed?), and Chris Murray provides a new photography lesson in Depth of Field: The Story Behind the Image "Pine Needles on Snow”

and Marilyn Neulieb gives us a memory poem in Tennessee Street, illustrated by Karen Millspaugh, and John Lefevere shares River Rogues, Chapter 1, which was published this month and available on Amazon as a Kindle book.

Good news for bedtime stories...

We are eager to announce Scott Ouderkirk's new project is launched.

Scott writes, "This has been a long time coming and I'm so excited!! Follow the link to see the teaser, for the animated audio book version of The Wind in the Islands.
