Our member of the month goes out to a very special member who has been with us from day 1. Linda has been an absolute pleasure to work with and is always there to volunteer her time and talents! .
I have been doing crossfit since the gym opened in late November
I like to work out to anything byAC/DC.
My motivation is to get and stay fit entering my golden years.
My favorite thing about Crossfit Aspinock is the sense of community. Everyone encourages each other to push forward when you want to quit. The coaches never give up on us.
I think the fact that I started crossfit at age 66 and haven't given up on myself makes me pretty unique.
Life’s a beach—or it can be if you want to decorate that way. Coastal living is both a lifestyle and a decorating style. You can even create a coastal décor if you live inland.
Currently, about 45 percent of the U.S. population lives in a coastal community. The appeal of the sun, the sand and the surf is just too strong to be denied. Since Americans are “going coastal,” it makes sense to decorate that way. And if you don’t live near the coast, but long to, you can bring a little bit of a coastal feel to your home décor even if an actual beach is more than a short drive away.

. “Tin Man ” by @sarahwinman released 5/15 @putnambooks .
. 🌻About The Book:
This is almost a love story.
Ellis and Michael are twelve when they first become friends, and for a long time it is just the two of them, cycling the streets of Oxford, teaching themselves how to swim, discovering poetry, and dodging the fists of overbearing fathers. And then one day this closest of friendships grows into something more.
But then we fast forward a decade or so, to find that Ellis is married to Annie, and Michael is nowhere in sight. Which leads to the question, what happened in the years between?
This is almost a love story. But it's not as simple as that. #tinman#bookblogger#bookgiveaway#sarahwinman
Connecticut's state flower, the Mountain Laurel, grows wild in much of the area. The Mountain Laurel is an evergreen shrub that is native to the east coast. Early immigrants brought the beloved but poisonous plant to Europe in the 1700s.
I spent the last four years working on a project called “Under the Dark Sky: Life in the Thames Basin.” The book is now available and was published by Garnet Books. I hope that you enjoy the images.
Photographs tell the story of contemporary rural life in eastern Connecticut and southern Massachusetts.
Photographer Steven G. Smith showcases the picturesque Thames River basin, which extends from southern Massachusetts through Connecticut to the Long Island Sound. The river and its watershed help define the borders of a valley that is unique among its East Coast neighbors, considered to be the last place where dark night sky can be viewed between Washington, D.C. and the Boston metro area. Locals like to call the area the “Quiet Corner” or the “Last Green Valley.” In 1994, the U.S. Congress designated parts of the area as a Natural Heritage Corridor because it is one of the last remaining stretches of green in the area and boasts some of the largest unbroken forests in southern New England. This full-color documentary photo essay explores this Atlantic gem, through the faces of the people and the landscapes.

Tapley Memorial Hall in Danvers, Massachusetts was built in 1930 as a museum and reception area for the Danvers Historical Society. It sits right next to the Page House. Danvers was originally called Salem Village and was one of the main spots of the 1692 Salem Witch Delusion. Many of the names from the Witch Trial that you were taught in school lived in Danvers and surrounding areas and not the City of Salem. The Salem Village name is what confused everybody, and the City of Salem seems to have just run with the whole witch thing (granted, there were parts of the Witch Trials there too). In 1752 Salem Village was renamed Danvers in honor of Colonial Governor of New York, Danvers Osborn. In 1855, Peabody, Massachusetts broke away from Danvers, first calling itself South Danvers, then renaming itself after George Peabody. American Revolution General Israel Putnam was born in Danvers, but is better known for his actions around Long Island (Putnam County, NY is named for him). There’s a whole lot of history here in this Boston suburb. #Massachusetts#Danvers#DanversMA#witchtrial#witchtrials#witch#AmericanRevolution#SalemMA#Salem#history#Boston#GeorgePeabody#IsraelPutnam#Putnam
