Got Gratitude?
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. Melody Beattie

With Thanksgiving coming up this month it is a great time to reflect on all that is good in our lives. It is time when families come together to celebrate life and love. It is also a good time to recognize those in need. Commit to visiting a food pantry, soup kitchen or sponsor a family for Thanksgiving. If you don't have the time, why not buy someone a turkey while at the grocery store? Think of ways to show gratitude through random acts of kindness. If you are looking to take baby steps start by sending thank you cards. Look for ways in your everyday life to show others appreciation. Giving to others is the fastest way to enrich your life.

Wishing you all a H A P P Y T H A N K S G I V I N G!

5 Simple Ways to Winterize Your Home

Fall is upon us and with temperatures beginning to dip, it’s time to start winterizing your home! After all, winter is just around the corner.

It should take about 2 hours to winterize a house and experts say that this small amount of time could lead to BIG savings on heating bills.

Here are 5 simple ways to winterize your home. Stay warm!

1. Change the direction of ceiling fans: Counter-clockwise rotation produces cooling breeze but clockwise rotation produces warmer air.
2. Install storm doors: Cracks in your door will increase the air flowing in and out of your home (letting the warm air out and the cold air in). Installing storm doors can help seal those drafts and reduce the air flowing in and out.
3. Remove window a/c units: Air sneaks in through the cracks of window air conditioning units so remove them during the winter when you most likely will not use air conditioning anyways.
4. Upgrade (and use) your thermostat: Upgrade to a programmable thermostat which is digital and typically very accurate. An older thermostat can be off by a couple degrees, resulting in wasted energy and money. Then program your thermostat with different temperatures throughout the day (such as nighttime and workday setbacks).
5. Service your heating system: A complete system check of your furnace should be completed annually.

If you have a vacant property to secure for the winter, call Adam Pavelchak with Chippens Plumbing at 860-716-0303. Prices range from $135 - $300 depending on the property.


Plymouth, Massachusetts is also known as “America’s Hometown” and as the birthplace of Thanksgiving.

Plymouth holds a very important place in our nation’s history. Most Americans know the story of the Pilgrims voyage across the Atlantic aboard the Mayflower, their landing at Plymouth Rock and the founding of the first colony in 1620 (New England). The town has served as the backdrop for several historical events, the most notable being the First Thanksgiving feast.

Though still an active port, today Plymouth is best known as a tourist destination. The town is home to several notable sites that tourists enjoy.

Plymouth Rock is said to be the disembarkation site of the Pilgrims.

Plimoth Plantation is a living history museum and consists of a re-creation of the Plymouth settlement in 1627. There is also a replica of a 17th century Wampanoag homesite.

The Mayflower II is a full-size replica of the Mayflower, the ship which brought the Pilgrims to Plymouth.

The population is 56,468 according to the 2010 U.S. Census.
