  The Berlin Fair is trying something new this year.  In the past the Berlin Fair has been held on the last weekend in September, which also happens to be one of the rainiest weekends of the year.  So for the 2017 Berlin Fair In Connecticut, they are holding the Berlin Fair two weeks earlier, and I guess what?  So far it is suppose to be a dry weekend. My wife and I have gone to the Berlin Fair the last few years, and each year inspite of the rain, the Fair has been packed.  All the parking lots were full, and as you can see from the picture to the right the line for tickets to get in is very long.  But it did not matter because once we get in we have a blast.  There is lots to do and see at the Berlin Fair.  Some of the things at the Fair were: Crafts Farm Equipment Farm Animals Games...

  Both of my boys played soccer as they were growing up and it is a sport all players get a lot of playing time.  Both of them were pretty good at soccer but they could have really benefited from a program like Berlin High School's Women's Soccer Team Clinic On August 26th., at Sage Park in Berlin, CT from 9:00 a.m. to Noon. This soccer clinic is available for both boys and girls attending grades 2-8.  However, you do need to register your child by calling (860) 828-0620. Youth Soccer is a very popular sport in Connecticut, and is a great way for children to interact with other kids in their town.  Soccer is a sport I urge parent to get their kids involved in, and all kids can play regardless of their level of ability.     ***************************************************************...

This evening my wife and I had the pleasure to go see one of our favorite young man perform in the last High School Play he will be in.  This weekend Berlin High School Presents Once Upon A Mattress, and this special young man Theo Reed, played the lead roll of Prince Dauntless.  Theo and the whole cast did an exceptional job, and my wife and I completely enjoyed the play.Most of us have read or seen the play Once Upon A Mattress.  But if you have not, Once Upon A Mattress is about a young prince whose over protective mother decreed that only the princess who can pass her test may marry her son.  But that is not all the Queen has decreed, she has also stipulated that no one else in the kingdom may marry until Prince Dauntless is married.  I could tell you the special test Dauntless's fu...

 Spring is in the air, and car show season is kicking off around here with the 2016 Berlin, CT Fairground Car Show On April 24.  I love old classic cars, maybe because I think I now qualify to be considered a classic as well.I have not been the the Berlin, CT Fairground Car Show before, in fact this is the first time I have heard of it, so may be this is the first one.  But whether it is the first one or not, it will be the first one for this year for the towns around me.  The Berlin, CT Fairgrounds is a very large area, so I am hoping it is filled with great old classic cars.I got my calendar marked, and can't wait to see what the 2016 Berlin, CT Fairground Car Show On April 24th has to offer!   ******************************************************************************  Info about ...

  Yesterday my wife and I had the pleasure to go see a Junior High School performance of Peter Pan At The Catherine M. McGee Middle School, in Berlin, CT.  One of the performers was Noah Reed, who played Chief Tiger Bamboo, and did a fabulous job.  The performance by all the kids was unbelievably well done, but what made it extra special was watching Noah, and the excellent job he did. Even though my wife and now have our first grand child, the Reed children have been and will continue to be our adopted grand kids. Many of the High Schools and Junior High Schools are having performances of Broadway Plays like Peter Pan.  If you have not had a chance to see a performance yet at your area High School or Junior High School, I would encourage you to do so.  You will be amazed at how well t...
