Cambridge Life 12-13-06 Cambridge Life 12-13-06

It's a wonderful life in Cambridge, NY

Ho! Ho! Ho! and Light the festival lights! The holiday season is in full swing here in Cambridge, NY. Last week we had some of the white stuff on the ground, but the weather has warmed-up again.

But don't let the lack of snow get you down. FRIDAY NIGHT, 12/15 @ 7:00 is Open Mic Poetry Night at Battenkill Books, 1 East Main Street, Cambridge, NY. In fact, I want to introduce you all to a new segment that will start after the holidays: The Poetry Corner. Margaret and Catherine (owners of Battenkill Books) will publish a weekly feature that highlights a local poet and publishes one of their poems. If you want to submit a poem for the blog, contact Margaret or Catherine by visiting the bookstore or phoning them at 518-677-2208.

I also had a wonderful weekend past. It started out with the open house at the Rice Mansion Inn, then a stroll down Main Street with stops at Chasing Silver (677-3415), Battenkill Books, the Valley Artisans Market (677-2765) and the Village Store (677-5731) rounding out my day. But...the weekend did not end on Saturday or Sunday...Nooooo it continued through to Tuesday night when I went to meet and talk with local author and dog authority Jon Katz at Battenkill Books. Google Jon's name and check out his writings...if you love dogs, farm life and country living Jon is the writer you want to start reading.

As you can see, life in Cambridge, NY is never dull. Let me know about your doings around the Cambridge Valley by posting a comment on the blog or emailing me I'll happily post your impressions of life here in Cambridge, NY.
