Greetings to all my long lost friends in the Happy Valley! I say long lost because I grew up in the lovely town of Leverett where I tended to several horses, a flock of chickens, pigs and goats. I also worked at the Black Sheep and mixed the popover batter at Judy's. I know everyone is thinking holidays, holidays, holidays at the moment, but having always been someone with terrible timing, I'm writing about....BIRTHDAYS!
SOUTH DEERFIELD - I have always loved Thanksgiving. Somehow it managed to be the one holiday that didn't result in huge blow-up decorations on neighbors' lawns a month ahead of the holiday itself. It was always a chance to spend time with people I cared about, the kind of time that seemingly had no limits, as we bought food, cooked and ate together. It was the final bulwark before the shopping frenzy for Christmas, beginning the next day on Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year.

I've been running my website The Location Reservoir as a database of filming locations in Western Mass for awhile now. Well, the site is now evolving into also being a guide to venues in the area for weddings, conferences, performances, and other events.
