Instead of worrying about the world, I went off this lovely Sunday to visit one of my neighbor's businesses. Kent's Sugar House produces all the maple syrup we use at home. We love this product and are always fascinated to visit the Kent family as they manufacture their syrup the old fashioned way. They also are a part of Americana that we all adore: hard working people who make wonderful things, often, by themselves. So sit back and enjoy one of the most wonderful things in spring in the Northeast. Mud season is bearable if we can have maple syrup the rest of the year.
