https://youtube.com/shorts/Hsgnz6EUORE?feature=share Two friends texted me a couple of days ago. “Did you see this???” It was an article on a bunch of hoarded cats in Monkton, Vermont, which had been saved by Queen City Cats VT. I had not. I looked at their website, http://www.queencitycatsvt.org. They had some adorable cats available, including this guy. IContinue reading “My New Cat: Lincoln!”

More Burlington High School Demolition
According to the Burlington School District, they expect the demolition to be completed very soon. A Building may be completely demolished by Saturday afternoon. That’s wild, but very likely doable. As you’ll see both in the video and photos, those machines have wreaked a ton of havoc already. And that’s what they’re supposed to do.Continue reading “More Burlington High School Demolition”
Volvo Excavator on the Go!
https://youtube.com/shorts/wz-SNzxjmRk?feature=share As Burlington High School is being demolished, I followed this excavator with my camera. I enjoyed watching it roll over the sidewalk with ease. As I filmed, there were multiple groups of students walking up from North Beach, which is at the end of Institute Road. I had to keep pausing the video, soContinue reading “Volvo Excavator on the Go!”
Mower Gets Stuck!
I never tire of watching the landscaping crew cut the grass. The way those front wheels kept bouncing up off the ground, I wondered if that Hustler HyperDrive lawnmower were going to pitch backwards. Seeing the mower get stuck was surprising and funny!
Burlington High School Demolition Has Begun
BHS is contaminated by Poly-Chlorinated BiPhenyls or PCBs, for short. These are cancer-causing agents. According to the School Superintendent, these PCBs had leached into the concrete itself. There was no saving this high school. So, the demolition of Burlington High School has begun. I know it’s necessary. It still hurts, though. The demolition began onContinue reading “Burlington High School Demolition Has Begun”
Beautiful Red Granite Cemetery Monument
As I strolled Resurrection Park, the largest Catholic cemetery in Vermont, I found this gorgeous red granite grave monument. You’ll see at the top is a mourning dove. Apropos, no?
Power Washer at Work!
A company came to power wash the overhangs and front entrances. Apparently, that included the patio windows, ceilings and even some patio furniture. I really loved THAT! The water contained bleach. I can’t stand the smell and it can and will trigger an asthma attack. I opted to go inside as they cleaned the patioContinue reading “Power Washer at Work!”

Once I heard the sound of the lawn mower, I looked up to see that THIS was NOT the kind I was expecting! This behemoth cut a LOT of grass given its wide path!

Burlington High School: Soon to be Demolished
ALL VIDEOS GO LIVE AT 12:30AM EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME. I drove over to Burlington High School to see what it looked like. Admittedly, I was somewhat surprised to see such tall (maybe 7-8′ tall) fencing around it. I did figure EnviroVantage would be closer to demolition at this point. Looks like I was correct. SeeingContinue reading “Burlington High School: Soon to be Demolished”
Herbert T. Davis Memorial Garden: A Pet Cemetery
I stumbled upon this place and wanted to see it. I decided to film it because you deserved to see it, too. I wish there were flowers, but the trees were certainly lovely. June and Herb Davis built the first Humane Society of Chittenden County’s (HSCC) facility. They are considered the modern founders of thisContinue reading “Herbert T.
