 Middletown, CT, CT is not thought of as a rural or farm town, but both the South-Side and Northwest-Side of Middletown have several working farms.  The farm in the picture above and the pictures of the farm below are of farms just down the street from me, less than 1/4 mile away.  Besides the cows, horses, and crops on these farms, they also grow their own hay.  This past week the local Farmers were out bailing the hay they cut earlier in the week before.For these Farmers this is nothing special and a lot of hard work.  But for a city slicker like me, watching them haying and then bailing it is a special sight.  The local Farmers will do this several times during the Summer and again in the Fall.  The hay they produce and bail is what their animals will survive on during the Winter mon...

School starts up in Middletown, CT this week, and when my two sons were growing up the one thing my wife & I would search the newspaper for each in everyday for the month of August was the School Bus Schedule. Back then the Middletown Connecticut School Bus Schedule was not available on the Internet.  The only way we could get it was to wait for it to be published in our local newspaper, and we only got one shot at it.  If we missed it on the day it was published, we had to then run around to the neighbors to see if they cut it out of the newspaper and kept it.  Today it is very easy to find out what the School Bus Schedule is by just going on to the Middletown, CT School website and clicking on the link for the Middletown Connecticut 2016-2017 School Bus Schedule. On the Middletown Sch...
