speaking of atk, i love the personal emails from vermont that chris kimball sends you when you sign up for info on their website. i feel like i have a snooty gay buddy in vermont, serruptitiously trying to tell me that his life is better than mine, lol.
you mean chris is sending my emails i get from him to you too? he's gay? is that a guess, or....

i love vermont for so many of those oddly twisting mentalities you just mentioned, addie, and so many more... a real sense of indivifduality, and therefore freedom. truely american!

vit, he's apparently not sending you the same emails...

j/k.

my reference was for effect, if you know childless couples that do that.

I like "French Food at Home" with Laura Calder. Not only does the food look delicious, but Laura herself is quite easy on the eyes. She seems like she would be fun to cook with, always making little jokes and winking at the camera and such. The non-stop French bistro background music kind of gets old after awhile, but other than that the show is very well done.

I love watching Top Chef and several others already listed, but only one makes me want to get up and cook when it comes on. Semi-homemade makes me get up, turn off the TV, and want to create something from scratch
Is this what the OP meant?

Isn't it more fun to go out in a horse and sleigh than to plow the roads?

Yet they are probably the most liberal thinking folks around. Child molesters get off with minimal sentencing. Cows have to be milked before a call for a murder that has been commited is answered. They still hold town meetings where the raising of hands counts as votes. Why waste the paper to write your vote down in privacy.

For those that live near the border with NH, they cross over to do all their shopping. Having said all this, I have to side with them on the big box stores. And with the limitatons of chain restaurants. No Burger King or Wendy's for them. Want a burger? Go to the local diner. For that first cup of coffee and to compare notes with your neighbors before your workday starts.

Having said all this. I love Vermont.
I grew up in Maine, but have only been to Vermont once, and I was smitten! It was one of those places that was pretty much exactly how you imagined it would be. Rolling green hills, farms, quaint towns etc.. I would love to spend more time there. I would eat my weight in cheese and ice cream!

Have you ever noticed that every pic of Vermont shows a church with a clock in the spire? BTW, that church is most likely a Congragational Church. They put clocks in all their spires.

Same here. Being a student in Computer Science and a huge nerd I love learning about science. My cooking apron says "Baking is science for hungry people" (taken from a Questionable Content strip).
