Hello, I am a great fan of your show and am the gallery manager for the Flinn Gallery located on the second floor of Greenwich Library. The Flinn is an all volunteer-run gallery that features six exhibits a season, September through June each year. We as a committee, select, curate, light and install all of the exhibits. The Flinn has become a destination for artists, art lovers and collectors. The Greenwich library has had a designated gallery space since 1930… known as the Hurlbutt Gallery and has a rich history of shows and artists who have shown there… until the new 96 ft x 30 ft state-of-the-art space was built in the new Peterson Wing … now known as the “Lawrence and Stephanie Flinn Gallery.”
We are still amazed when residents and constant library patrons are surprised to find such a dynamic space at the top of the stairs within the library.
I am writing to ask you to consider doing a piece on the gallery, how it is run and just how much of a jewel it is in an amazing public library.
I can be reached through the gallery email… [email protected] or my personal email… [email protected] and through the gallery phone 203.622.7947 during gallery hours (M, W, F and Sat 10-5; Th 10-8 and Sunday 1-5) or my cell 203.969.4119.
Thank you for your consideration. Best, Cynthia Whalen.

HI, I was wondering if you would be interested in doing a segment on my spa in Woodbury, Salt of the Earth Therapeutic Spa. We provide salt therapy and other services. Our cave is the second one in Connecticut. We are doing a Grand Opening in April. I was thinking sometime around then or the month after if you are interested.

Thanks for contacting us! Sorry for the delayed response. Sounds soothing and on my doorstep too, shoots for this season are complete but your information is on file! I assume the cave is not a real cave in Woodbury?

I am one of a very enthusiastic group of soaring (not” hang-glider”) pilots who soar like the birds, only higher and faster, over and around CT and occasionally MA, and I am eager to let other nearby New Englanders know that they can join me and my club, the Connecticut Soaring Association (501 c.3) at Danielson Airport in beautiful Killingly CT, in the up-lifting activity known as “soaring.” You being a British gent probably are aware of the sport, but as Connecticut has only this one glider operation, most Connecticut residents are not.
We are told that there will be an up-coming documentary on PBS “Cloudstreet-Soaring the American West,” and we would look forward to an enthusiastic response if we could succeed in getting the word out that Soaring is alive and well in Connecticut. I invite you to come over to see us and take a flight or two.

Thanks for the invitation. I soared (went gliding) once at North Weald in Essex (former WW2 airfield) in the UK. Pulled up by a cable on a drum on the front of a land rover attached to another land rover that pulled away down a runway to take us up to the sky – after the hair-raising induced stall to detach the silence was the surprising thing – peaceful as we circled a slow and made a controlled decent. I understand cross country over significant distance is possible picking up thermals from roads etc but there were more “possible” landing sites than the rocky terrain here!! I shall be in touch some more! thanks for connecting, David

Wells Valley Farm LLC and Wells Valley Cat Sanctuary, Inc. go hand in hand. Wells Valley Farm is a stable with approximately 20 horses in disciplines across the board – dressage, eventing, hunters and jumpers. We have a 70′ by 175′ indoor ring, two outdoor rings, individual paddocks, and a stream to cross with trails on the far side. At the same time, we house a 501C3 cat sanctuary. Our specialty is feral cats which we trap, spay/neuter, and where possible release to their original locations. We also take in any other cat with no place to go. All cats receive vet evaluations, shot and neutering where necessary. The sociable cats move on to our partner, New Milford Animal Welfare for placement. For those feral cats that can’t return to their original location, we have a feral cat facility with special outdoor fencing. We are hoping to build a second building as the first building is starting to get crowded. We would love to have you come out and see our unique facility.

I loved “All Things CT” which included beautiful Stonington, CT ! Is it possible to get
2 copies of the Stonington Village video of the poet, James Merrill’s place at
107 Water Street? My 2 sons lived with their Dad (an Artist & American Airlines
Pilot) in the apartment below Mr. Merrill’s. This is while I, their Mom, was
in a Broadway Show, “Annie Get Your Gun” with Lucie Arnaz in 1978.
I will be glad to pay for the videos as I’d love to gift them to my two sons
who are grown. They would appreciate this deed immensely.

Thank you for your appreciation. This link should deliver you directly to the James Merrill segment and be shareable with your 2 sons. With a little technical savvy they should be able to download it too! The segment will likely be available in the archives in this way though for as long as we all may be around to enjoy it. Hope this does the trick and again, thank you for you appreciation.
Meanwhile – sounds like you have an interesting life story! Can I look you up when in Mystic next!?

Hello Producers of All Things Connecticut,
Have you been to Old Lyme, CT to see the wonderful osprey colony on Great Island? The Nature Conservancy protects piping plovers and least terns on the beach of Griswold Point that is on Long Island Sound.
These fish hawks have been studied by Dr. Paul Spitzer annually since he brought attention with Roger Tory Peterson about the effects of DDT on these Connecticut ospreys. Fortunately, the colony has recovered magnificently!
Recently I accompanied Dr. Spitzer, (a very interesting field biologist and ornithologist) out to a sample of the nests. along the Black Hall river and out to Great Island. These ospreys return to the platforms on the marshes after a long migration in March. Paul checks on the eggs and possible hatchlings (1 to 3) in over 20 nests with a long telescoping mirror, hand made by his friend and avid birder, Hank Goulet of Old Lyme.
Old Lyme was the home of the famous Roger Tory Peterson. He mentored Paul.
I think our Connecticut shorebirds birds are a special treasure to appreciate. They are easy to film too. Nothing like a canoe or kayak trip from the Smith Neck public boat landing in Old Lyme (off of route 156) to see wildlife quietly.
If you or interested parties wish to contact Dr. Paul Spitzer, please write an e-mail to ([email protected]). He will be returning to Old Lyme to check the ospreys and their food supply after a quick trip to Wyoming before July 4th.
Everyone should visit my hometown of Old Lyme to see our ospreys.
Love your show: “All Things Connecticut”.

Thank you so much for your appreciate comments. Love the idea of shoreline birds.
New full season will not begin til new year between times we are trying out a short firm news style All Things Connecticut “on the road” but there could be an “on the water” one don’t you think!
Love Old Lyme so watch this space!!
Again thank you for getting in touch so thoughtfully

Have you considered devoting an episode of your great show to The Farmington Canal Heritage Trail? The FCHT is an off-road greenway that is a popular resource for non-carbon recreation and transportation that is 3/4 completed along the right-of-way of the former Farmington Canal Railroad between New Haven and the MA border. The trail connects CT history, culture, landscape and geography as it wends its way connecting 13 towns through the spine of the state. Please contact us anytime, there are two organizations advocating for its completion: The Farmington Canal Rail-to-Trail Association and the Farmington Valley Trails Council, Lisa Fernandez and Bruce Donald are the presidents respectively.
