Corporate America seems to have a new formula for “apologizing” when they’ve done something bad and need to improve their PR. We’ve seen it recently with Facebook and Starbucks.
“Even though we’ve done wrong,” they say, “trust us to make it better. You should expect more.” Note that this only comes after being caught.
It sounds great, doesn’t it? They realize the error and will make sure it never happens again.

Last night on AM talk radio I heard that Canadians had built a huge marijuana grow operation the size of 23 football fields. Today, I checked the internet news. Well, God Bless our relatives and neighbors to the north, they have gone all out!

was spun out of a bankrupt business. Many schools for the deaf have closed their doors—partly due to the development of cochlear implant surgery and partly due to mainstreaming of students with special needs in public schools resulting from the IDEA Act of 1975 (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act). One of them, the 100 year-old Austine School in Brattleboro, Vermont, went bust and closed it doors in 2014. However, the audiology department was still vibrant and had many adult clients in the community.

Our final look at this season is a tour through our Retro Brattleboro Poster section.
If you enjoy shopping online from home, be sure to visit .
Continuing our tour through the online Brattleboro Shop, let me introduce you to some featuring familiar Brattleboro clock faces. There are also a few fine accessories here you might find useful. Perhaps best of all, you don’t have to leave your house to do some shopping.
Now that it is finally getting chilly out, it’s safe to say we are approaching . The Brattleboro Shop, our online Brattleboro souvenir store, has many mugs for you. These mugs are great for tea, coffee, and cocoa, and make perfect gifts.
Some might recall that we started to sell some classy, unique Brattleboro-themed souvenirs. It’s less than a year old, but the response has been great, and we’ve been adding new things on a regular basis.
We’d like to hear from you!

Are you paying enough, not enough, or none at all? You decide if a break is needed. Seems Vermont has plenty of tax to go around as compared to the rest of the country.
Tho not a breakfast person, I enjoyed several visits for coffee & to join friends who were breakfasting at a nice cafe on Elliot St called The Restless Rooster. Just heard they lost their lease & are closing. Thought that might be picked up on ibrattleboro, but not seen anything. Facts needed. But the place was cheerful and pleasant, & the times I was there seemed quite active with happy customers.
