Re: “Style Patrol: Prepositions Are Creeping Up on Us

The odious, clunky phrases "order off of" and "making money off of" better exemplify your observation of "preposition creep," don't you think?

Re: “Vermont Comedy Club to Open in November

I think there's a place in Burlington for a comedy club and I'm looking forward to local and national acts alike! Wish it was opening earlier!

Re: “Vermont Comedy Club to Open in November

I hope they do Comedy for a Cause and have us as their 1st organization for a fundraiser, Blue Star Mothers of Vermont's pet program. :-)

Re: “Books: What One Vermonter Found When Her Husband Lost His Memory

Interesting experience. Two ex husbands with mental deterioration, Alzheimers and Dementia. Wow. Later on you met a special someone and you never knew how such a love was possible. I didn't either until I met the love of my life, the gentleman in the next door condo in the Senior HOA condo complex. I met Gino, my sweetheart, after my professorial husband had a never ending affair with a young woman. It was one of those life's lessons that started out bitter and ended up sweetly delicious.
I too have been told that my spiritual path is an escape from reality, when in actuality it is a face to face experience with reality, both confrontational as well as a totally accepting experience both without and within myself. I'm sure that my EVENTUAL acceptance and mindfulness in every situation associated with my divorce resulted in my finding the love of my life. I know that I have known Gino in a very sweet almost idyllic prior life and that he is my reward for learning all the lessons presented to me by this so called "negative" divorce experience.

Re: “A Burlington Teacher Unveils the Secrets of Snake-Style Tai Chi

I am a student of Stephanie Panskus. I did not look for the Tai Chi snake style, and never cared too much about Martial Arts secrets. After my friend dragged me to a lesson, I was intrigued by the way I could work with Stephanie. We have to feel, reflect and talk a lot. It is the only way to learn what the snake style can offer to me. I haven't found magic, I have found a way to work with body and mind iteratively and incrementally for the rest of my life. Thank you Bob, thank you Stephanie!

Re: “A Burlington Teacher Unveils the Secrets of Snake-Style Tai Chi

I am very happy to read such an earned honoring article about my Grandmaster Bob Boyd.
He definately is the outstanding person and teacher like here was written!

Before I met him I learnt some time Tigerstyle-Tai Chi but stopped with it because it felt very wrong to my body how the corrections were given to the students.
My work as a Physical- and Manual-Therapist since 20 years (-> so teaching optimized movements to my patients too) did not correspond to that kind of bodymovements.
But the Ipfamilystyle/Snakestyle of Tai Chi does match definately to health and optimized bodymovement!

Me, now in learning process with Grandmaster Bob Boyd since 2008 and working as a certified teacher of his style too, I am able to report that every student having had some pain before starting Tai Chi Ipfamilystyle is now after training regularly much better or even free from lowbackpain, shoulderproblems and neckpain and improved in body balance.
So there is a lot of healthbenefit additionally to very much fun while training this wonderful style of Tai Chi : The Ipfamilystyle - Snakestyle!

Thanks to Grandmaster Bob Boyd it is spread all over the world!

Our Teacherteam is from the US, Canada, Belgium, Germany, France, Poland, Japan, Serbia, England, Ireland and we are meeting each semester to improve our skills and maintain our connections!

Re: “Red Solo Cup

"Idling at the curb"! That's way tooooo old school my friend. We may have gotten away with that at Central Taxi in NY back in the day, but in the 21st century idling over a few minutes in summer is verbotten. See: http://climatechangeconnection.org/solutions/transportation/idling/problems-caused-by-idling/

In any case, that was a good fare to cap off your day (as long as he stayed asleep ;)

Re: “Vermont Comedy Club to Open in November

It's really hard to imagine a comedy club surviving in Burlington. Or in that building. I give it a year before a major new strategy.
