I was born in the Berkshires, and have always believed in ghosts. Luckily for me, the Berkshires seem to have an abundance of ghosts and the stories to go along with them. When I was younger, I lived in Pittsfield, and often saw a ghost of a Native American man, who would peek in … Continue reading the story "Ghosts in the Berkshires"
Snow means different things to different people around New England. Kids, of course think the more the better, and will gladly spend hours playing in the frigid temperatures. There are the outdoor sports enthusiasts, who pray for the fluffy stuff, so they can get out on the slopes or hit the trails. Then there are those of us, who are either just muddling through, praying … Continue reading the story "Winter snow in the Berkshires"

There are farmer's markets, roadside stands, and if you don't garden yourself, you know someone who does, that will willingly supply … Continue reading the story "Natural Food Stores in the Berkshires"

I know, not a … Continue reading the story "Visiting the Berkshire Festival of Women Writers"

They are all fine and well, I mean, who doesn't like yummy froyo with tons of tasty toppings piled on? But, out of all … Continue reading the story "Froyo heaven at Ayelada….."
Like most women, I am fickle about my hair. Of course, I am the opposite of most women, who visit hair stylists on a regular basis, and use products and implements to get their hair just right. I never used to cut my hair, it just grew to its natural state, and I loved it. I didn't color or style it any special way, it just … Continue reading the story "A visit to Peter Alvarez Salon in Lenox"
There was a time, that finding a good breakfast in the Berkshires was a pretty easy task for me. That was back when a fantastic café existed and I still ate dairy and eggs. The café was one of the few places in the county that you could get a delicious, gourmet(but still 'down home' tasting) meal for breakfast or lunch.
