Are you sad to see the snow melt?  It’s hard to believe that just a week ago I wrote about the major blizzard and trying to find help with shoveling driveways and clearing sidewalks.  My grandson visited commenting that he hadn’t even had a chance to walk in the snow.  Well, his Dad put his boots on and out in the yard they trudged, throwing snowballs and building a snowman.  It was a pleasure watching them have so much fun in just an hour. Alas!  See below the melting snowman a few days later.  Yippee!  Here comes Spring!

How many of you attended the Art shows at the Garibaldi-Meucci Museum, Wagner College and/or St. George Theater?  I went to the opening reception for the exhibit "Photographs and Prints by Vincent Verdi and Ann Marie McDonnell" on

I accompanied my grandson to a special St. Patrick’s Day event at the Tottenville Branch of the New York Public Library on Tuesday.  Miss Amy, one of my grandson’s favorite librarians, read a number of books that featured “green” themes.  After reading, the children sang songs and then watched as Miss Amy turned a stuffed caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly.  Each child was given a chance to open the Velcro caterpillar and observe the transformation.  They were enchanted!  Afterwards, there were arts and crafts to color, decorate with glitter, cut out and bring home.  I always have a grand time watching the children and seeing their faces light up when they participate in reading and programs.  Did you know there are activities and programs at the New
