Like most of us, I am wishing weekends were longer right now. Is it just me or does it seems like there is so much to do on the weekends and so little time? Of course, we all have the Honey-do list but I am actually talking about all the cool stuff that is going on in the Hudson Valley.

I look on social media and talk with friends and it seems as though there is more to do than ever. It can be so hard to choose. If we didn't have to squeeze it all into a weekend. Wouldn't it be fun if we could invert weekdays at work with weekends, therefore, giving us five days a week to do cool stuff? I vote yes. So what could we be doing this week if we had enough time?

Wright Cemetery On Route 52 in Stormville, NY

The Wright Burial Ground located on Route 52 between Stormville and Pecksville, NY started to come to people's attention again most for its current condition. It has been located in the same spot since the early 1800s but recent brush clearly has brought its rough condition to people's attention. Broken headstones scattered about on the shoulder of the road have people asking what can be done to care for them going forward.
