I hope all’s well with everyone as we enjoy this rather cool summer. I love it!
Baiting Hollow Congregational Church’s annual chicken barbecue will take place Saturday, Aug. 2. If you’ve never gone, you should. Chicken with all the trimmings will make you content. Takeout will be available. The rain date is Aug. 3 but hopefully that won’t be needed. Enjoy! (more…)

Happy summer! May it go very, very slow and be a nice, balmy 80 degrees or so.
If you didn’t get any strawberries yet you may still have a few days, but beware, they’re almost gone. As one tasty fruit leaves, something else takes its place. Peas, zucchini and squash have arrived and on the near horizon will be sweet corn. (more…)

On his last day as president of the Mobile/Manufactured Homeowner’s Association of Suffolk County Saturday, Joe Kummer didn’t get word that a bill he’s been fighting for on “unreasonable” rent hikes for mobile homes was approved by the state legislature.
But he did get a cake.
