Where am I ??
I thought it might be interesting to include a little diversity in our postings now and again. Since we would like to identify ourselves as being knowledgeable in the areas we serve. I wonder how many can identify the location of the picture at the left? Obviously, each picture may be more familiar to one person over another, but if I select from a different community each time it should work out. This is a tough one but leave a comment to this post if you know. ( Sorry, No prizes)
Oh, and by the way, if any one wants more snow for Christmas than I have falling on Newburyport Harbor, let me know…. Bruce
