Pharmacy Search

I just got notice that, unfortunately Hotel Pharmacy will no longer be a part of my insurance prescription network. I've been a customer there for 8 years and now need to find a new pharmacy. Does anyone know if there are any other pharmacies in town that offer delivery service?

Vintage Game - Crossbows and Catapults

I know this is a very long shot but thought I'd give it a try. My son's had a game in the 80s called "Crossbows and Catapults" which they loved. We were trying to find one of these for a reasonable price. EBay and Amazon have several ranging from $150 to $275 ....ridiculous.  

So, I'm wondering if somewhere in the diverse land of ibrattleboro someone might have one of these languishing in their attic? As I said, I realize the chances are slim but thought it was worth a try. I'm happy to pay a reasonable price for it. Thanks!

Aphids On Your Medical Marijuana Plants? Get LadyBugs!

I found a little lady bug and didn't have the heart to put it out in the cold, what with the weather going below freezing at night. So, I looked up ladybugs on the internet and found you can keep one as a pet.  I took in a green pumpkin that had never ripened and followed instructions to care for it.  Just a paper towel around the stem, a few drops of water a day on the paper towel so the lady bug can suck the water out, and a drop of honey a day for food.  I've had my pet lady bug for about 10 days now, she did leave for 2 days, then returned to her green pumpkin.

BarreWorks is a fitness class offered at HotWheelz Studio (www.hotwheelzcycle.com) in Putney (13 Kimball Hill) on Thursdays at 6 am.  Not a dance class, not a Pilates class, not a yoga class…but Barre specifically works on lengthening muscles, developing core strength, and improving flexibility and posture. 

A fast-paced 45-minute class encompasses all major muscle groups and is adaptable to all fitness levels. Barre is a natural complement to running, cycling and other cardio-intensive activities. The results are amazing; come check it out for yourself!
