Re: “International Drone Day [SIV442]

Such a great story. We're very lucky to have SIV. I don't feel stuck though.🙀

Re: “Tir Asleen Burlington Dagorhir [SIV440]

Like what you see? Look us up on Or come down to Oakledge Park in Burlington. Practices are Saturday 1pm, gear and training provided. Join the group and make friends; there are often impromptu sparring sessions in Battery park as well. The group is very welcoming and if you have interest, attitude and will, there is a place for you here.

Re: “Stuck Inside a Vermonter's Colon [SIV434]

Awesome PR piece on (formerly DREADed) colonoscopies!! Just breezed through one last week, and can assure you the new prep drink is truly drinkable now!! (No more salty battery acid to gag your way through---it has appropriately been taken off the market!)
Thanks for sharing the scope's imagery, Eve; I slept through my screening and was bummed that I missed watching it.

Re: “Stuck Inside a Vermonter's Colon [SIV434]

Screening can PREVENT bowel cancer. The people's "absurd presumption in their own good fortune", as Adam Smith called it (, clashes with the notion that they might have bowel/colorectal cancer. But it doesn't clash with the information that they can PREVENT cancer by removing pre-cancerous growths (polyps) during a one-hour "screening" procedure, which will also relieve any symptoms caused by the polyps. That's what you have to tell them if you want them to get "screened". Experts may argue that the need for early detection of cancer ought to be persuasive enough. But if you want to persuade people, you need to give them the information that they *actually* find persuasive -- not the information that they *ought* to find persuasive!

Re: “Vermont English Bulldog Rescue [SIV433]

Thanks Don! Bulldogs and tubas go hand in hand in my book! ;)

Re: “Vermont English Bulldog Rescue [SIV433]

What a great addition to this week's animal issue! I especially like the tuba music in the beginning.

Re: “ULU Reboots at Danform [SIV423]

This is excellent news! There are no other boots out there like these and I have had a hard time finding a replacement! Thank you for bringing them back and I look forward to purchasing a new pair.

Re: “Knight's Spider Web Farm [SIV409]

We visited the Spider Web Farm this past August. Such a neat story and incredibly sweet couple. Just a unique thing to experience with the family.

Re: “Weed in the Green Mountains [SIV420]

Think of the revenue that Vermont could use. Legalize it.

Only 1/3 in the 802 smoke pot? That sounds backwards.

Re: “Weed in the Green Mountains [SIV420]

I am so glad you found the one crazy Doctor lady to balance this out Eva. I guess the fact that millions and millions and millions of humans having smoked cannabis since 1965 in the US with no adverse side effects (other than munchies and maybe reduced motivation) doesn't register with her. The fact we have had the last 3 Presidents smart enough to be President....even after smoking in their youth. Just amazing.

Re: “Exploring with Obscure Vermont [SIV417]

Have followed Chads blog for just a short while, but have come to eagerly await the next posts. My wife and I have visited this lovely region every year for decades, but Chad gives us a look at at a Vermont we rarely see. His writing is compelling and his photography adds even more interest to his work. Thank you Eva and Seven Days for giving us the opportunity to learn a bit more about this very interesting young man. And of course, thank you Chad.

Re: “Eating Roadkill at Hotel Vermont [419]

"From the grill of my truck to Doug's grill." It doesn't get much more local than that.

One more reason to care about our land and water--it feeds us, literally!

Amazing job of storytelling, Eva Sollberger of Seven Days!! Crazy good food preparation by Douglas Paine and Travis Daniell of Hotel Vermont's Juniper Bar & Restaurant. Wonderful support from John Abair and Albert Kittell! Thank you for your leadership and partnership Vermont Fish & Wildlife's Louis Porter. Thank you Scott Richardson and Eric LaMontagne for your hard work on behalf of Lake Champlain International. What an amazing night! How can any of us who are so fortunate to live here not be "Wild about Vermont" and want to do all that is necessary to pass it on even better than how we found it! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of the team.
