Nutmeg Poisoning

This post makes the 23rd Nutmeg Poisoning, i.e., overdoses of the Connecticut-related tidbits I seem to collect without really trying from various expected and unexpected places around the Internet. It's also Christmas Day today, so Merry Christmas to all who are celebrating, and Happy New Year to everyone - see you in 2016!

-It seems the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation still has this dilapidated old schoolhouse up for sale. If buyers didn't have to "demonstrate ability to remove structure from the site and reconstruct it on a new site," I'd be so tempted. And if you like that kind of thing, browse the rest of their Historic Properties Exchange.

-A few Connecticut destinations have made their way to the AFAR website.

-Did you know that the first cookbook written by an American was published in Hartford?

-A rare sighting of a Pink-footed Goose was reported in Avon.

-The Colin McEnroe Show explored the "other Connecticut," or what many would call the real Connecticut, the lesser-traveled eastern half of the state.

-The Telegraph, on the trail of Mark Twain, found Hartford to be a "pleasant New England town."

-And finally, Cute Overload featured this adorable holiday video from UConn. Make sure you watch all the way to the end, because that's the best part, and don't miss the behind-the-scenes video.
