Its fiddlehead season and this has been a good year to go pickin! During the last week and a half, there has been a bounty of them available. We were able to get out twice and find a good crop ready to harvest in our favorite spot.
Helene and I went to “The Spot” again yesterday with a friend (Grace) who is also a forager. We were all happy; to be able to experience a good day of picking and not having the rain put a damper on our adventure.
For the first time ever, we also encountered a new person who was out there on Fiddlehead Island. Once seen as a pastime for the tree huggers, foraging is having a new renaissance. People like the idea of finding their own healthy food and getting closer to nature.
By the looks of the growth this year, we should be able to get one more weekend in before the season is finished around here.

This week, I traveled to all six New England states in my job as a delivery truck driver. As I was traveling along the roads, I noticed that just about every Seasonal Road Food stand that I saw along the way had opened for business this week. Yes, Spring is really here!
Those great American Road food stops that are all along the Roads of Life had placed the “Open for Business” flags outside and the picnic tables were cleaned and ready for customers.
There are all kinds of road foods available in the small road side stops, from hot dog huts, ice cream stands, barbecue joints, clam shacks and even bakeries. It did get me thinking, I need to start planning, when and where my daily trip's will allow me to stop and experience the many road food stands that I will encounter this year.
I have driven through many parts of the country and have learned that the best places to stop for good Road Foods are generally off the beaten track. There are also many regions in the Northeast that you can travel that offer their own regional specialties. All you need to do to eat well is to keep your eyes peeled. Is the parking lot full, are there a lot of people waiting in line or sitting at the tables outside? If so, its a good bet that that stand is one of the local hot spots.
I can’t wait to experience my next memorable meal on-the-go, the stop that you never forget in your travels and journeys of life. The roadside stops are now ready as we travel along the “Back Roads to Bliss”. Sometimes you have to go out of your way for a great experience.
And try to enjoy the Rainy Day, it has changed my plans a bit today.
U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut (D) should start practicing what he preaches. You know, that Safety, Safety, Safety thing.
The yellow lines are painted there to remind people to stand back in a safe zone. But the Candidate for a Darwin Award forgot about that during a news conference last Friday when an Amtrak train barreled past the platform, coming within inches of him.

On the third Monday in April, Bostonians celebrate Patriots’ Day. It is the Holiday which remembers the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the beginning of the American Revolutionary War.
It is a state holiday observed in both Massachusetts and Maine; many people will flock to the city of Boston to take part in the festivities. Boston locals and tourist will have ample opportunity to celebrate Patriots’ Day with the main event being the Boston Marathon. It is where tourist, locals and hordes of college students from Boston University, Boston College, Harvard, and many of the other universities from the area start lining up at 6am along the race route to loudly cheer on the runners. Later, the Boston Red Sox will host the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park and the surrounding bars around Fenway Park will be packed with Red Sox fans, marathon runners, and other rowdy celebrants having fun way past the game’s conclusion.
For those that would like to see a less boisterous experience, Patriots' Day Celebration's are also held in Lexington Massachusetts, a reenactment of the Battle of Lexington will also be held starting at 5:30 a.m.
