  • Spring is nature's way of saying, 'Let's party!'

    After this year's extended winter, spring really is a reason to party! As we shake the snow off of our boots and venture out of our winter dens, the sights, sounds and smells of spring jump up to greet us.

    And party we did! With the daffodil festival last weekend (April 25 through 27, 2014) everyone was ready to shake that cabin fever, get out and greet spring good and proper. Continue reading

  • A Tribute to the Jeep Grand Wagoneer

    Tribute to the Jeep Grand WagoneerAn absolute legend of a high-end 4x4, a hugely influential and long-lasting progenitor of the modern-day sports-utility vehicle, and a smooth, spacious ride with an imposing grill and unmistakable faux-wood paneling -- the Jeep Grand Wagoneer may have ended production better than two decades ago, but it still boasts legions of loyal fans. Stylish yet rugged, it defined the luxury SUV market before it officially existed -- and hasn't ever been eclipsed for sheer character. Continue reading

  • LPGA on Nantucket?

    This is a guest post from Christina J.

    Gates, Golf Course, Light House and Fog

    With the mild temperatures, beautiful landscapes and historic New England charm that permeates Nantucket, it’s the perfect location for a professional golf tournament. While Nantucket hasn’t managed to secure a major yet, local groups continue their efforts to change that. Efforts to finalize a spot in the 2014 Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) tour fell through, but Miacomet Golf Course is hoping for a mulligan in 2015.

  • Golf is the closest game to the game we call life

    Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots — but you have to play the ball where it lies. - Bobby Jones, greatest amateur golfer and lawyer

    Bobby Jones was known not only for being an amateur golfer who regularly beat professionals but also for his Grand Slam, which was his victory in every major golf championship a single calendar year. To this day, the feat has never been repeated, although Tiger Woods came close when he won four consecutive golf tournaments over two years.

    Bobby went on to retire at the age of 28, and he co-founded the Masters Tournament as well as the Augusta National Golf Club. The Masters Tournament is held every year by the club, and Bobby Jones was one of the primary engines behind its success.
