"Attempting tinsmithing, rising fourth-grader Colby Petry said in the middle of his camp last week that he signed up because he is 'really into history.'"
"Living History campers experience 1800s life" by Michel Elben
"Twenty-four fourth-grade campers, some dressed in period garb, tried their hands at sewing, cooking, painting, tinsmithing, weaving, ropemaking, cane-fishing and candy-making last week during the Carroll County Farm Museum's annual Living History Camp. This week, fifth-graders are getting their turn…"

This speaks well of Farmers and Merchants Bank as it is about time, that boards of directors start looking like the local community by adding women, and men and woman of color. Just saying.

It is great to be alive in the year 2017. Jim Rowe had posted on my Facebook page that he had baked a cherry custard pie.
I had planned to stay in the office and work through dinner with a sandwich. However, with the information that a cherry custard pie was available,
Caroline weighed-in, the presses stopped and all plans were changed.
Jim Rowe greeted us at the door, and seated us in the back. We had a great dinner.
Caroline ordered salmon cakes, Grammy got the soft shell crab again and I went for the meatloaf. Meatloaf is a specialty dish for both Caroline and me, so we know meatloaf – and it was the best.
Our server was Tessa Howard – the best.
For dessert, Caroline and Grammy had the cherry custard pie and I had the carrot cake. It was to die for.
Frank Tunzi came out from the kitchen to say hi, and to remind us that he made the flowers for our wedding. He even remembered all the details. (I know flowers – it was my business for 25-years.)
And for a bonus, we got to see Stephen Howard, who was helping-out in the kitchen of whom, I was just reminded, is Larry L Brumfield's son. It is a small world.
It's great to live in Carroll County. Love, love, love Buttersburg Inn.

Caroline and I visited the vendor's booths at the #MSFA 2017 Maryland State Firemen's Association Convention, but after some thought and consideration we have decided that we want the Westminster Fire Dept. to buy the 1931 Model A Ford, for its next piece of equipment. Just saying. Monday, June 19, 2017.

The Hill: Dems push leaders to talk less about Russia
|June 24, 2017|
Frustrated Democrats hoping to elevate their election fortunes have a resounding message for party leaders: Stop talking so much about Russia.
|Democratic leaders have been beating the drum this year over the ongoing probes into the Trump administration’s potential ties to Moscow, taking every opportunity to highlight the saga and forcing floor votes designed to uncover any business dealings the president might have with Russian figures.|
|But rank-and-file Democrats say the Russia-Trump narrative is simply a non-issue with district voters, who are much more worried about bread-and-butter economic concerns like jobs, wages and the cost of education and healthcare.|

It is a small world, after talking with Emily, she was able to recall that she came to the Westminster mayor's office to interview me when she was in the third grade. I remember it well. What fun
