Grateful for Winooski neighbor connection

Lovely posting today on the Winooski FPF from Mary Beth today…

I am sure many other people share this sentiment of how thankful they are for Front Porch Forum.

What a wonderful resource in so many ways.

Because of the forum I have learned about events in the area, participated in a research study at UVM, gotten a free desk for my daughter, and found the owner of the chicken that I found dead in the road and disposed of the other day. Both the owner and I were grateful to have located each other and it was all because of the forum.

For those who post and those who run the Forum, THANK YOU for this valuable community resource!

Hansel back home in Cabot now

Posting published on the Cabot Front Porch Forum Saturday…

Hansel is a shepherd/lab mix, black with tan markings on his chest and legs. He’s wearing a blue collar on which is written my phone number (though it may have rubbed off). He ran off with my landlord’s dog mid-morning on Saturday. Landlord’s dog was discovered in front of Cabot General Store late afternoon Saturday, Hansel is still wandering.  Hansel is friendly and will come when called.  Please call with any sightings or information about my best friend.

Followed by this one Sunday…

Hansel was several miles away, in lower Cabot. He’s home now, safe, exhausted, limping a bit. Many thanks to all who were watching for him.

And infinite thanks to FPF who posted an entire forum that contained only the posting from me about Hansel. I won’t wait until I win the lottery. I’m making a donation to Front Porch Forum this week. It is an invaluable and vital connection for us all.

Moose in Burlington’s Five Sisters neighborhood

Shared by Sue on today’s Five Sisters Front Porch Forum

image-2Roger, sharp-eyed and vigilant Charlotte Street neighbor, caught a snap of our Tuesday morning neighbor…

Reports Roger: “It was surreal seeing a moose waltzing down Charlotte St.”

Neighborhood dogs (well, one in particular) say: “Surreal schmurreal. Where’s the blood pressure medicine?”

Others reported on FPF seeing the moose near Oakledge Park.

Check out Nik’s video in the comments… next to Calahan Park in Burlington.

Tires? Try your neighbors

From Penny tonight on the Morrisville FPF…

Hi Neighbors!  If you are like me the markings on your tires are written in another language! I mean 205/55/R16? What the heck?

Any way several months ago a fella from Front Porch Forum sent me some information on tire sizing and I came across this web site which is SO easy to use. You put in the make and model of your car and year and it tells you all kinds of tires that will fit your car! I also double check with my car fella just to make sure…

Also I want to post a HUGE thank you to FPF. Today in just 2 hours I found my second set of summer tires for the season! Also last fall I found my sister and friend winter tires within days!
