Photo Of Vermont Snow & Yeti Scalp With Links To Bloggers In Vermont & Nepal

My Cousin Kim in Plainfield, Vermont has sent me the above picture of recent snow in her town.   

Notice the rustic barn or barnlike structure in the photo.

Here is information about organic farming in Vermont.   

Here is information about Plainfield, Vermont. 1286 people are said to live in Plainfield.   

Here is a blog from Vermont called Non-Toxic Kids. It is about not giving kids toxic toys and about all of us living in a more sustainable and decent fashion.  The blog owner seems like a nice lady. She cares about her kids and other people’s kids.

Here is Down On The Farm from South Peacham, Vermont. I wonder what it would be like to live on a farm. What a different life. There are so many ways to live in the world.

Here is a Vermont politics blog I enjoyed reading called Norsehorse’s Home Turf.

Below is a photo of what is said the be the scalp of a Yeti or Abominable Snowman. It is kept in a Buddhist Monastery in Nepal. 

Here is a link to information about bloggers and blogging in Nepal.

  1. Nice, but apart from the photo, this entry is _very_ light on Yeti-related information. And you’ve completely ignored both Vermont’s Champ (and the minor league Burlington Lake Monsters) , which would have been a perfect tie-in, and the Yeti’s American cousin, Sasquatch! Don’t you love America, Neil?

  2. I spent a summer in Burlington and I did not see Champ in Lake Champlain. So I’m not so sure about Champ.

    I’m saving Sasquatch for another post.

    Thank you for this fine comment.

  3. It’s Katy over at Non-Toxic Kids and I noticed that I am on your blogroll (thank you!). I wanted to let you know that I changed my URL over to http://www.non-toxickids.net. I also have some a new button design for blogs if you are interested at http://www.non-toxickids.net/2007/11/button-link-love.html. If you don’t mind changing the address that would be great as I will be moving from blogspot to wordpress in the coming weeks.

    We are still buried in over two feet of snow! I long to see the ground and to remember that plants actually grow (sigh).

    Thanks again!

    Katy
