There are plenty of things to see and do there. I couldn't live there these days. Many places were different decades ago. Time marches on and things change.

A forum member has told us how wonderful it was to grow up there. It was country living. At least suburban or semi-rural.

I do not miss the traffic on RT 78 and 31, wow did it change in 28 years. If you work from home and do not have to deal with commuting even the better!
Thanks! We have two girls of our own (and now room for a few more perhaps). As for the commute, we are blessed in that we work locally. We know many people who have to commute an hour plus from here. I used to commute 50 miles each way on Route 31 but no more, thank God.

TractorByNet.com - Compact Tractor Forum

Great web site with many hours of reading on all topics regarding compact tractors. When you buy one make sure you get one with a FEL.
Thanks-I have browsed that site before but not yet joined. Definitely looking forward to doing more research there

Fornos (or, as the semi-literates refer to it..."Forno's") is good, but I can tell you from long-term experience that Casa Vasca, located on Elm Street, is much better than Fornos.

Yes, I have been there, but it has probably been at least 30 years since I was there.

Septic work continues...







Kind of funny considering this place would have had an outhouse when it was originally built. That's about 800 yards of displaced dirt. The hole will be filled with 1200 tons of select fill to create the zones of treatment and disposal for the effluent coming from the field, then all of the dirt has to be spread on site and regraded.

In terms of counties...which counties are the most rural? I would surmise Warren and Salem....yes?
