The Little Gravely that COULD!

The Little Gravely that COULD!

My main Gravely Tractor is undergoing transmission work at the moment.  So last night I pulled out my back up tractor to do some snow blowing.  This tractor is the antique Model Li that I featured in THIS blog post.  And so because of the genius of the Gravely design all the attachments are interchangeable across several years of two wheel tractor models.  That means I can put the snow blower on this little guy!  And let me tell you I was pleasantly surprised with just how hard this little Gravely can work!  Even at less horsepower, 6.6 horse as opposed to 8 horse on my main tractor, this tractor was really doing a good job and holding it's own!  Of course my neighbor showed up with his Commercial 12, a giant of a tractor, using the same blower attachment.  It is a sort of  "Gravely Club" after all!

Beat the Winter Blues!

Learn from the experts at Sylvia Ross Home

Maine’s winters can be beautiful, and can seem long and isolating. Wintry weather can limit our ability to get out and do the things we like to do and the shorter days can also affect our emotional well being. As a result, some Mainers may feel sad and frustrated – perhaps even depressed. However, there are things that people can do to positively influence their moods during the colder months. On January 11, 2012 from 2 -3 pm, Rosscare will be presenting “Beat the Winter Blues” at the Sylvia Ross Home, 758 Broadway in Bangor.

Presenter, Amy Cotton, a nurse practitioner at Rosscare’s Center for Healthy Aging, has more than 20 years experience in senior health. During this event, Amy will provide tips on how to help beat the winter blues, as-well-as provide the signs and symptoms for depression, seasonal affective disorder, and post-holiday let down.

This will not be the church craft fair that you went to last year...trying to decide between the wooden geese, doilies and the rayon yarn vests in red and green.

This will be the juried creatives fair of Rockland, where artists, artisans, craftspeople, and foodies can sell their wares to folks who are looking for the perfect gift for friends, family and coworkers.  Maybe for themselves, too! 

We will be located in the gym of the Lincoln Street Center, 24 Lincoln Street, with over 50 booths!
