Happy Spring – Free Ice Cream Anyone?

Happy First Day of SPRING!

#WinterStormEugene has left a mess that is still in our yards from last week but it is officially SPRING according to weathermen across the country…

Welcome Spring - bluejay flowers teacup

Today in CT there’s still a heaping amount of snow in our yards but it is officially the first day of spring! March doesn’t know which way it wants to go, having some warmer days earlier and then slamming us with #BlizzardEugene… but now at least the sun is shining and the calendar says that it’s SPRING

Check around to see which of the local ice cream shops around you are offering a Free Small One Scoop Ice Cream. To celebrate spring there are a couple that are offering a Free Small Cone or a Buy One Get On Special.

Will you and the children be going out to enjoy the beautiful day and go out to find the Free Ice Cream in your location? Let everyone know which places are offering Free or BOGO Ice Cream in your area by leaving a comment below.

#MalloysMess Ruining Summer Fun

Does your family like to camp in CT state parks?

Well thanks to the democrats your family will not be able to camp in some of the parks after the July 4th holiday weekend because the democrats do not value your family & choose instead to give raises to UCONN’s already highly paid administrators & to their favorite corporate buddies

Do you like to go to the summer concerts & farmers market & wander through the Old State House?  Well again #MalloysMess means that you can’t enjoy like you have in years past, but maybe on a limited schedule if businesses & private people step up!

The Old State House will be Closed to  the Public starting June 29th according to this news report http://fox61.com/2016/06/24/old-state-house-to-close-to-the-public-june-29-due-to-budget-cuts/

 

We’re still waiting word official about the farmers market & the summer concert series

is from the article but it is not looking good for the other usual offerings. There is the possibility that the cuts might even affect the WinterFest was mentioned on one of the news channels. There is time enough for that to find additional sources for funding. I hope that people remember all of this mess by November when they go to vote.

RiverFest was cancelled & originally the Movies in the Park were cancelled but some local businesses stepped up & were able to save that family fun nights. Shout Out to Jamie of Bears BBQ who is one of the local businesses that saved Movie Nights in the Park!

The West Indian Independence Celebration will be able to have it’s 54 Annivesary celebration in Bushnell Park but it is pared back due to the budget cuts. So there will only be a parade of bands & dance troupes but none of the usual Big Floats in it’s condensed route around the park rather than down it’s normal parade route.

 

10 Days until Christmas

A nice thought from Christmas Countdown last year

Under the Christmas tree,
With many dreams in the eyes,
The gifts and the fun,
Feeling a little wise,
That is the fun of Christmas,
With family and friends,
Stay blessed,
Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

New gang in Chicopee recruiting kids as young as 12 years old – Western Mass News – WGGB/WSHM

I came across the article below
After hearing about some recent bike thefts & seeing some complaints & debates about the gangs of children on bikes riding recklessly in Windsor neighborhoods on facebook; I’m wondering if this might be what is going on.

Parents want to put their heads in the sand & think that their children would not act in such a manner but reality is that in the times in which we live we possibly could have such a bike gang problem going on.

Parents we have to talk to our children & their friends parents so we can know where our children are. I think that it might be a good thing to have our police departments to compare notes to see if there is a possibility that this gang in Mass is also operating here in CT.

What is there for our youth to do to distract them from this type of activity that is quite dangerous?
With all of the money spent on the schools aren’t there after school activities for the children to be a part of?
What activities are offered at the community centers that our children can take part in so they aren’t playing in the streets?

A new gang in Chicopee has police on high alert because the group is recruiting kids as young as 12-years-old.  Officers are now continuing their efforts in providing safety for residents.

Windsor Budget – Vote NO Tomorrow

Reminder Get Out & Vote NO on the Budget Tomorrow

Polls Open at 6am & Close at 8pm

#YourVoteIsYourVoice – #VoteNo

#SayNoNewTaxes – there is a lot of questionable BoE items needing transparency & the democrats in charge of the BoE aren’t being forthcoming about all the numbers nor looking for cost saving measures that can be options for our citizens – the BoE budget is 2/3rds of the town’s total budget & it needs to be better managed, we’ve had too much vagueness in their numbers & animosity by the BoE leadership when being questioned about how they plan to spend our families money

#SaveWindsorPuppies – Save our Windsor Animal Control Shelter the democrats are forcing our current “dog pound” to be destroyed by their corporate friends who they have given the tax breaks to build luxury mixed use apartments (think like Hartford office & stores downstairs & apartments on top commercial buildings) so the rich get rid of our puppies who have gotten lost & found by our animal control officers & now instead of building a new shelter the democrats who obviously do not like dogs are trying to send our Windsor Puppies out of town to possibly kill shelters #DemocratsHatePuppies

TAX on back of bent over man

#SaveTeamParagon – our 18 year olds need to vote to save their classmates Robotics Program which the democrats will displace when they try to take over the old Roger Wolcott school which was closed due to students leaving the district – our teens deserve to have the Robotics Team in a space where they can continue to grow in learning as well as experiencing successes as they compete #DemocratsHateRobots

If you are RICH you’ll have no problem going along with the democrat bullies who have been steadily increasing our taxes every year but if you are part of the lower income brackets that are struggling under the weight of the excesses & wasteful spending that the democrats who are running Windsor are jamming down our throats then #VoteNo
#DemocratsHatePoorPeople

Windsor Budget Vote May 12th

Windsor Voters it is time once again to get your paper & pencil & sit down & figure out how much more this year your family can afford to spend paying for the high & inflated budget which has been put in front of us to pay with another tax increase on our property taxes…
Keep in mind that our state officials are also planning to increase our income taxes & adding taxes on items not previously taxed, in addition to raising the taxes on items we’ve got to pay for our gas, cigarettes, & wine

Many do not have the ability to attend the town hall meetings on a regular basis due to family & work obligations, but were you aware that even if you do not get cable tv into your home you can watch many of our town hall meetings online?
