I have lived in the Falls since 1968. My great-great grandfather was one of the village founders. I have served the community in multiple ways: Firefighter, various boards and commissions and for many years was president of the Falls Cable Access Corp. Currently I own, and am active in, a restaurant equipment manufacturing company.
Last Friday I was surprised with an office party celebrating my upcoming retirement. After 40 years or so I'll be giving up going to work and the daily grind.
My family and my employees, unaware by me, got together and set up this surprise event which was totally unexpected.
No, I don't mean smoking.
Due to my retirement, I'm trying to discontinue a subscription to The Wall Street Journal.
The last time I had a similar problem was when I wanted to leave the clutches of America Online.

Here I am on a few days of escape from the daily routine.
There is only one story on the news here. It is on every channel that is not boadcasting old movies or the like. (There are plenty of channels, both English and French to choose from.)
