Hello Everyone

Other than our real cold weather we have been having I do not have hardly any thing to report for this coming week. My news never made the paper. I have been having trouble getting onto the Internet. All kinds of problems.

The book is being sold in several places around town, and I'm hearing people just simply love her book. Pick one up soon, and all proceeds goes to Warm Waldo or Garry Owen House.

The Joe-4-Oil Program is not available yet, Let's hope it is available next month to help people with heating oil. We sure have been burning lots of fuel to keep warm.They say to check back in February.

Cell Tower

The cell tower here in Knox is not in use yet. People have been wondering. We can only wait for this in the future.


Several folks have been in Florida. Some are still there, and others are just leaving this week to go. Enjoy the warmer weather. Although I see on Facebook that it has been pretty cold in the Southern States as well. Let us hope it does warm up soon.

The American Legion and Auxiliary held their conference on January 18th in Millinocket. There was about 60 Ladies attending. I didn't attend.


Gabe got to celebrate his 11th Birthday on Jan. 20th. He went to Boston to the Museum of Science, and the Aquarium. He loves those trips. He went with family.

Until next week,

Beware that cold weather, Take extra precautions out and about. The temps have been below zero, and staying there. Also, staying in the single digits. I do not like to go anywhere .Stay warm friends. The days are passing by, and soon it will be Spring before we know it. Take care now, we still have ice under foot to deal with.


There has been a lot of strep throat going around. I saw on TV where there was a case of  TB reported. This is scary stuff to hear.
