Magical Mystery Tour

I’ve been on the planet for a while, and my first taste of a magical mystery tour was in 1967, courtesy of four young men known as The Beatles. Up until then, John, Paul, George and Ringo could do no wrong, but the film they created for British television was poorly received and the fab four took a hit for the first time since taking the world by storm. As we all know, the band recovered nicely and so too, shall we—in the wake of Sullivan County’s new-age version, the three-day-long party known as Mysteryland.  Read more

Get your licks in

Is there anything better than a big bowl of ice cream on a hot day? Inevitably, it conjures up memories of childhood, when all those exciting flavor possibilities were almost overwhelming. The dreamy swirls, the little puddles that formed around the edges and the tantalizing drips were all part of the grandest treat ever. Whether you grew up eating rich, eggy frozen custard or icy, fruity sherbet, you’ll remember the excruciating choice between cup or cone and the delicious dilemma of hot fudge versus sprinkles. Don’t wait for summer to make your first batch.  Read more

Rosa’s tails

Rosa let go of her mamma’s hand and ran for the rail of the ship. It was a beautiful crisp day; big fluffy white clouds floated over the harbor. The pigtails of her long brown hair swung back and forth as she ran holding on to her straw hat so it didn’t blow off in the breeze, as it has done many times on this voyage. The painted flowers on her dress moved as if they were in an open field in early spring, just dancing in the wind. Rosa reached the rail, grabbed it with both hands, pulled herself up on her toes for a better look and let out a shriek joy.  Read more
