Re: “From News to Nature, the Photography of Rob Swanson [SIV517]

I have a recommmendation. At 40 College St, corner of College and Battery , our gardens have recently been restored and provide all those who pass by on their way to the lake a summer and fall of color thanks to our wonderful landscape ladies, Andrea Morgante and Penny Klein (Golden Girl Gardening). Next week they'll be plantning this city block long , 13 separate garden areas (largest in Burlington). I thought you might like to visit the site sometime during that time and again mid summer when the annuals have filled in and are doing their "thing".
I am a resident of 40 College and on the board there, proud of the work these ladies have done.

Re: “Sammy's Wish [SIV529]

Make-a-Wish Vermont deserves our sincerest thanks and praise for their commitment to bringing smiles and happy times to a child and his/her family as they struggle with the difficulties of illness.

Please consider being a generous giver to Make-a-Wish VT. May this wonderful, charitable work continue to lighten, even for a short span of time, the heartaches the entire family lives with as they and their child deal with the hand theyve been given.

Kudos to Jamie Hathaway and his tireless Staff for the work they do and the joy they have brought, and will bring, to so many Vermont children!!

Re: “Joe’s Pond Ice Out [SIV527]

That's awesome. The town I went to college in has been doing the same thing for the past 50 years, but with a car on the ice.

I always plotted to circle the car with road salt and win the pot, but never actually went through with it.

Re: “All Eyes on Eva [SIV522]

Thank you Ken! Yes, the view during the surgery was really fascinating. The whole experience was eye opening (haha) and I am just so happy to be seeing again.

Re: “All Eyes on Eva [SIV522]

Kudos to you , Eva, for having the courage to tell this story! I am a film maker, and cataract patient myself. I worried that people would see me as having diminished capabilities but in the long run, I have adapted and even come to see the world in new ways, as I'm sure you will.

I especially like the "inner view" of the procedure. It's hard to describe what that light show looks like but I think you really captured it! - Ken French

Re: “The Blisses Get Stuck in Vermont [SIV523]

They seem like lovely people and I am happy for them...but obviously they have little problem with affordability and have the financial freedom to make these sorts of decisions. Is this the face of gentrification?

Re: “The Blisses Get Stuck in Vermont [SIV523]

I was laid off last summer, have been searching for a job for more than 6 months now and have recently begun considering expanding my job search nationally. I don't want to move. I love Vermont, love Burlington and love my house, but this job market has been tough (even though the unemployment rate is at an all time low). After watching this episode, there's NO WAY I can move. This video has given me renewed vigor to keep searching here until I land a job that I love.

Re: “The Blisses Get Stuck in Vermont [SIV523]

I moved back to Vermont after being gone 20 years and regret coming back to my home state . I came back here and unfortunately got bit my a tick and then I was at the mercy of the VT. healthcare system which is
basically ignoring a growing epidemic in their own state. If you move to VT be very careful about ticks because
the healthcare system here will do nothing to help you !

Re: “All Eyes on Eva [SIV522]

So very cool, Eva! Congratulations and thanks for this SIVT! I had to force myself to watch the surgery part but am glad I did. I have baby cataracts myself and can't wait till they grow up so I can get them removed and see without glasses too. : )

Re: “All Eyes on Eva [SIV522]

So awesome! You did a great service by filming this. So many people are terrified of having any kind of eye surgery. I had Lasik voluntarily, and then cornea repair (by Dr, Greg!) in an emergency. Couldn't be more happy with the results.

Re: “All Eyes on Eva [SIV522]

I had the surgery done in 2008 on both eyes, a week apart. When the bandages came off for the first eye the day after, I cried -- I saw textures and detail that I'd not seen in years. I tell everyone not to put it off. I'm still seeing better ten years after. I did need a procedure to remove cloudiness later, but it was a simple laser procedure.

Re: “A Walk in the Woods with Shelburne's Poet Laureate [SIV519]

Dear Rick,
So cool that Eva found you -now the whole world will know of one of Vermont's greatest living treasures! Every word you speak comes from your Heart. That is where all timeless Poetry comes from, and yours is timeless. You belong not only to Shelburne, but all of Vermont, for your Poetry exemplifies the values that have made the State of Vermont a household name to visitors and pilgrims from all of the World.
I still have the original loose copies you made of your first poems, as you shared them from your pickup truck along the farm roads. "If I could climb a rainbow/To slide down the other side/Or speak the language of the stars/In them I would confide." - from the poem, "If" (R.B. 3-16-06) Shelburne Farms
Your friend and admirer,

Re: “Rhythm of the Rein Therapeutic Riding & Driving Program [SIV504]

Thank you for all the great help your giving . My grand daughter, Lily Stilwell, is one of your riders. You are doing a awesome job in getting her back to her old self again. She has always been active and the accident has taken that away from her. But we all know that when one door closes another one opens. We very proud of Lily for all the hard work she has done. And thanks again for people like you to help her along her path.
