First time getting my name out there! Now that the weather is getting nice - it's time for me to get out on my bike! Litchfield County is a great place to ride. Me an my biker babes group did what I called a "rolling hills farm country" ride yesterday. Up Route 118 to Litchfield, over past the Haight (sp?) Vineyard, then looping back to Klug Farm. Being out on the bicycle gives you a whole new appreciation for the beautiful countryside we take for granted here in New England. So we're out there using our leg power - burning CPMs (calories per mile) instead of MPG - and taking in the beautiful countryside!

Committee Votes to Impose Higher Home Sales Tax Another Two Years; More Legislative Action Ahead The Legislature's Finance Committee voted 29-to-21 yesterday to overturn the scheduled reduction in the municipal conveyance tax. Current law says that a 2003 emergency increase in the tax expires on June 30, 2008. Voting within twenty-four hours after thousands of anti-tax petitions were delivered by REALTORS® at the Capitol, this is a momentary setback in the campaign to save the current law's "sunset" provision. On the other hand, the Committee debate, and the fact that six Democrats joined with 15 Republicans to oppose the extra tax, is a positive sign. The Substitute was a change from the original bill, which made the extra conveyance tax permanent. Instead, the Committee-approved bill ...

Improving Your Indoor Air Quality Many people spend a large portion of time indoors - as much as 80-90% of their lives. We work, study, eat, drink and sleep in enclosed environments where air circulation may be restricted. For these reasons, some experts feel that more people suffer from the effects of indoor air pollution than outdoor pollution. There are many sources of indoor air pollution in any home. These include combustion sources such as oil, gas, kerosene, coal, wood, and tobacco products; building materials and furnishings as diverse as deteriorated, asbestos-containing insulation, wet or damp carpet, and cabinetry or furniture made of certain pressed wood products; products for household cleaning and maintenance, personal care, or hobbies; central heating and cooling systems ...
