Vermont Small Town Advantage

I now live so rurally that there is NO Internet connection.

Every day I must search for a library on my way to and from various jobs to do my reports, office work, disaster alerts, petfinder uploads, blogs and emails. 

Since I work with many disabled farmers that rely on specialized equipment to keep them able to farm safely, I must get my reports into the main office asap so that grants can be approved and checks can be mailed to buy the assistive technology necessary for disabled farmers to keep farming.

The local librarian was surprised to see me so early this am.
 I explained my very frustrating and unusual predicament.

Thirty seconds later, I was handed the keys to the local library.

I now have my own parking space, a corner desk and 24/7 access to this tiny library that is usually only open 3 days and 18 hours a week.

Agriculture is #1 in this state.            These keys prove it.


  1. How wonderful! Glad to read that agriculture is still so well supported in your area

  2. That is so wonderful!!! How kind. I kinda envy you though, to be able to live like that. I bet you can hear the quiet. :)

  3. That is awesome! Don't you just love rural communities. They are the best.

    Wanted to let you know that I do upload my pictures onto the shelter's petfinder. They are now using a program called Petango. The just switched over from petfinder.

  4. There is something to be said for small town living.I was born and raised in the small town I still live in.

  5. That is the small town advantage! Good for you!
