$150 Reward for Return of Computer

Here is the short version.

I will pay $150 to anyone who brings me my computer, no questions asked.

It was removed from my car late Friday or early Saturday , and I need it for work and to communicate with my brother who moved over seas. 

There is work I cannot finish without that computer, including movie scenes shot here in Brattleboro, concerning alcohol addiction.

The World Trade Center - The Lonely One and Only

When Tower One and Tower Two stood in the same location for nearly thirty years the immensity of them was palpable, in height and breadth. In 2001 several months before 911 my sister-in-law and I were riding in a moving van on a June night on the highway on the New Jersey shoreline of the Hudson River when lower Manhattan came into view. She exclaimed, “My God, look at those two buildings. What are they for?” I told her they were the World Trade Center Towers. She couldn’t take her eyes off of them until they were no longer in view. I too took a long look at them wondering when I would see them again.

Pay As You Throw Bags Available, Kinda, Sorta

I checked the trash bag section at Hannaford today, to see if there was an exciting new display of PAYT bags and helpful information for getting started. No such luck.

But, at the checkout, the cashier did ask if I was from Brattleboro.

“Yes?”

“We have the new Pay As You Throw bags,” she said. They are for sale from the cashiers, not in the aisles.

Laugh Of The Day

I don’t know the source, but it gave me a chuckle  

Seen on http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/ 

"Dear Abby, My husband is a liar and a cheat. He has cheated on me from the beginning, and, when I confront him, he denies everything. What's worse, everyone knows that he cheats on me.

It is so humiliating.  Also, since he lost his job 14 years ago, he hasn't even looked for a new one. All he does all day is smoke cigars, cruise around and shoot the bull with his buddies, while I have to work to pay the bills.

The fire - which was seen sending plumes of smoke into the air by passersby on the other side of the river - was quickly extinguished and the reactor was deemed safe and stable,
