I was fortunate to have met and spend a few minutes with George Kalinsky when the show was only partially finished. I asked George if he wouldn’t mind standing in front of his photo of Joe Namath and quickly captured George with Joe (first photo below) only to realize the humor when George asked to see my telephone. “Not bad”, he said, referring to the quality of the photo. With that I got one more with him in front of a collage of his photographs you’ll see further below.  My photos of George Kalinsky’s work are not even remotely close to the color and detail of the museum quality photographs that are on display at The Southern Vermont Arts Center. Hope to see you there!

 

I watched the New York Rangers win the 1994 Stanley Cup from my hotel suite at the Shangri-La Hotel in Cebu, Philippines – it was 7:00AM local time!

This delightful collage of photographs are from your friends at Pond Mountain Inn.

New England Clam Chowder at Pond Mountain Inn

New England Clam ChowderKay has been making New England Clam Chowder since we lived in the Philippines – certainly an unlikely place for chowder, but it’s one of my favorite things in the world. We just moved to Vermont full time last week and what better way to commemorate the move than with a fresh batch of chowder – two dozen cherrystones, normally three though. I’m a chowder fanatic, or in polite society, a connoisseur – Kay’s chowder is absolutely the best, with one slight exception. This lovely couple visiting Pond Mountain Inn last year came prepared to make a batch of their own! His recipe was from a Massachusetts restaurant that I have since forgotten, but his chowder had a sophisticated elegance that was unforgettable. Someday I hope to get that recipe! I hope Norbert finds this blog….
