Vermont Public What?

I was listening to VPR, Vermont Public radio, today when they announced that their new name was …. Vermont Public.

Vermont Public what?  Well, they’ve merged TV and radio. “Vermont Public probably strikes you as both familiar, and different – and that’s the idea. Our name has evolved to reflect who we are, and where we’re going. We’re still everything you count on – and we can do more together, and welcome more people into the fold,” says their announcement.

It strikes me as kinda stupid sounding. No mention of the main thing they do… media broadcasts and streams over radio, TV, cable and internet. No mention of news or information. It doesn’t say anything about who they are or where they are going. It seems more like the forgot to finish the naming process.

New Issue of Blog88.org

Today I plan to go to the Co-op cafe, having just turned 77, and splurge on a slice of chocolate layer cake.

It is also the day that you get to see the new issue of blog88.org. It is the first issue since December. I felt dismayed to have gotten caught up in the winter doldrums, until I realized how foolish it is to make blogging into deadline pressure. Did it make sense to replace the work responsibilities that I have left behind with new obligations and stress?


“Here We Are” with Helena Leschuk

It takes a village (and a few towns, and many volunteers) to keep local TV alive and well and thriving -. as well as an accomplished and devoted crew.

In this show, Helena Leschuk gives us an inside look into Brattleboro Community TV and the staff that brings us the local information we need to know and many terrific shows to keep us entertained.

Patti Smith on “Here We Are”

Patti Smith lives and breathes in Nature – and writes and illustrates her discoveries. She’s befriended and rehabilitated  many critters over the years, created nature programs, and been the heartbeat of Bonnyvale Environmental Education Center (BEEC) since it began.
Take a look…… and then go for a walk!
