It was great to be able to learn more about the event and of course check out a number of the great scarecrows that were made. This year, the theme for the scarecrows is […]

There we were met by Karen Altieri and Gary Cook, two of the Island’s foremost ghost experts, for our Vineyard Ghost Walking Tour of Edgartown. Town was quiet, since it was a Tuesday, and the sky was black, and […]

A couple of years ago at the Featherstone flea market, I met Phoenix Russell, a talented Wampum  artist. I loved her work and began following her on Facebook. I would lust after her latest Wampum creation. But then, I noticed Phoenix’s pictures were no longer just beautiful Wampum jewelry. She also began posting photos of […]

One of the great things about events on Martha’s Vineyard is that you get to experience or learn something new, and even though it seems like such a small place, there’s so much I don’t know. Farm.Field.Sea. Early this fall, the inaugural Farm.Field.Sea. An Island Culinary Adventure, took place. It was a weekend celebration of local […]

No, this is not something for Glade Plug Ins, but rather this is a day to celebrate electric cars.  Ah, more talk of hybrids and solar and battery operating things, but there is only going to be more of it to come.
