Fog Rolling Over Lake Champlain

“The recent cold weather was accompanied by interesting fog over the open water of our lakes. Fog is essentially a ground-hugging cloud, composed of tiny liquid water droplets. This particular fog, called a steam fog, forms when cold air drifts across relatively warm water. The lake water evaporates into the air above the lake surface.Continue reading “Fog Rolling Over Lake Champlain”

Old Glory Waving Over Military Graves

Once I saw those flags standing straight out due to the strong winds, I knew I had to film. I am always awed by flags standing at attention. And that’s especially true when flags are flying over military graves. These soldiers, Union soldiers, who fought during the American Civil War, deserve this respect.

Peonies Passing on By!

“…Often, peonies were planted at the head of graves in cemeteries, assuring there would always be flowers in memory should there be no one left to decorate them. Once planted, peonies were good for a hundred years or more… …Nothing could be easier to grow than a peony. They thrive on neglect once established. TheContinue reading “Peonies Passing on By!”

Children’s Graves Revisited at Lakeview Cemetery

When I filmed these children’s graves back in June 2021, several headstones were tipped forward. This made some of them unreadable. There were others that were leaning in other directions as well. In September 2022, people from the Howard Center and the Vermont Old Cemetery Association joined forces to straighten these headstones. I must sayContinue reading “Children’s Graves Revisited at Lakeview Cemetery”

Burlington High School Kitchen: To Be Demolished!

I was granted permission to film the INTERIOR of a few areas inside of A Building. These areas included the auditorium, cafeteria and gymnasium. I also filmed the kitchen and a very short video of the area where the switchboard operator, Pearl Milisci, had worked. I say “area” because that space had been enlarged. ThisContinue reading “Burlington High School Kitchen: To Be Demolished!”

Burlington High School Cafeteria: Soon To Be Demolished!

When I attended Burlington High School, there were long and heavy brown tables used as lunch tables. In fact, when I sat for the SATs, those same tables were used again. Nowadays, round tables are the norm. Each seats eight students. I have been told that the cafeteria is actually quieter now. Students are noContinue reading “Burlington High School Cafeteria: Soon To Be Demolished!”

BHS Gymnasium

According to the woman who escorted me around A Building, the newer bleachers will be removed and used in the new gym. They may need to cut them down some because they are too wide. I took two gym classes when I was at BHS. The first one was an aerobics class and the onlyContinue reading “BHS Gymnasium”

Burlington High School Auditorium

As I was recording my video in the Burlington High School auditorium, I had wanted to share stories of my time in the Drama Club at BHS. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen and it was out of my control. Thus, you will be able to find those stories right here. I shall share stories and hopefully,Continue reading “Burlington High School Auditorium”

Murder of Crows A-Gathering

Years ago and long before I had my YouTube channel, I lived in an apartment building on the top floor. Every so often, a murder of crows would gather in all the trees, telephone wires and buildings. They would caw and caw and caw. Afterwards, they would suddenly fly as a flock. It could beContinue reading “Murder of Crows A-Gathering”
