    It's like the man said when they were building the Interstate: "The last 2,500 miles is the hardest."

  2. Only the desecration of a few more cemeteries to go...

  3. The reason is VTEL with delay to bring mobile phone service to Vermont simple term is: Vermont has mountains and valleys hidden with the cell phone coverage. VTEL tries with the mountains and valleys with cell phone, but takes some time. I am not an employee at VTEL, but Post Office employee told me "cannot get coverage even in a car accident on the cell phone because of the mountain." Make sense to me.

    1. I'm pretty sure Mickey knew about the hills and valleys going in. I've read that he built his manor house on a hill.

  4. well, he bought the hill but never built, even after moving the cemetery. His wife was reluctant to live there. Thought the neighbors were too mad at them. Some comman sense in the family at least.
