Baby spider plants and meeting neighbors in Morrisville

Yvette shared on the Morrisville FPF today…

I posted those baby spider plants on our Front Porch Forum yesterday and today? I got 7 “hits” with folks who were wanting to adopt them.They came and got them and carefully put them into their vehicles (one girl was on a bike) and took them home. Baby plants finding homes via the forum? You should be proud, FPF, for coming up with such a great plan for an online community bulletin board. Great service. Huge fan. Huge.



Town animal control officer tips for finding lost pets…

Posted on a central Vermont FPF today…

Sunday’s FPF posting about the found cat on Center Rd sure brought me a lot of responses! Happily, she is back home with her family as of last night!

There are many other lost cats in our community, and I thought I’d post some suggestions.

First, do not give up hope. The kitty who made it home last night was almost FIVE MILES from her house, and had been missing for a week. When your cat or dog goes missing, you should post it on your local Front Porch Forum, and use the check-off to let neighboring FPFs see the post. You should also post on Facebook… and email all pertinent information to [your local] Humane Society.

If you find a stray animal, please call [your local animal control officer]… I’d also like to make a plug here for micro-chipping your pets — it’s safe, economical, and can make the difference for getting your pet back.  And one more thing — LICENSE your dog with our town clerk – that really helps me to figure out where they belong! Thank you all for caring about our community’s animals.


Seeking cell coverage solution in Middlesex? Tap the power of neighbors…

Mark posted on the Middlesex FPF the other day…

Over the last month, perhaps due to summer foliage, we have almost completely lost our AT&T cell signal on Center Road. I have heard about solutions to this problem… I was wondering if anyone had had cell trouble and had tried any of these approaches. How did it work?

And yesterday he followed up with…

Thanks to all the good neighbors who took the time to respond about our poor phone service! We are going to look into setting up a microcell. The power of Front Porch Forum is really impressive.
