I'm sure that longtime residents of the Berkshires have their favorite 'go-to' pizza places, and I am definitely one of those people.  There are several that I think make pretty tasty pies, but there are only two in the county that I love enough to suggest to people looking for a delicious pizza.  One of my favorites is Baba Louie's , which has locations in Great Barrington, Continue reading the story "A lifetime love for East Side Pizza."

Shakespeare & Co.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"

Fresh ProduceWe are fortunate, in the Berkshires,  to live in the land of abundant farms and people who are committed to healthy foods, as a way of life.  In the summertime, it's easy to find fresh, local produce. 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"

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"
