GMC is the Perfect Fit for an Adventure
Weather or Not
any in the north were optimistic that towards the end of a bitterly cold and snowy season, nature would allow for the gentle passage of a warming trend as February approached its final days, and March eagerly waited to ride into New England. Unfortunately, the result was a distant second from the sunny days associated with the early stages of spring skiing and deck-parties hosting raucous, but amusing entertainment.
The northeast mountain ranges faced winter’s last revenge. Snow, ice, sleet, and frigid temperatures blanketed the region—from its peaks to valleys; the weather covered even the slightest spot of color with—inches to feet—of ice, a snowy-mix, even powder. It was perhaps the season’s worse storm at the highest altitudes.
The GMC winter driving event was scheduled during this same period, with participants knowing that facing the elements would be as tortuous as driving in them; resilient, they all made the journey.
The harsh conditions getting to Vermont’s tallest peak, Mount Mansfield, (hours away), was an ideal testing ground for the new 2019 GMC Sierra Denali 1500 4WD Crew Cab and AT4. Upon arrival to the mountain’s basecamp, the hybrid pickups would face another set of obstacles; they would be tested by participants, in a real-world, outdoor laboratory.
For some, the word design or designer is an enigma as much as it is used to describe a long list of multifaceted talents. As a catch-all expression, it often relates to abstraction, while bearing no intrinsic value, unless of course, someone is willing to purchase the result of the notion.

Travel Back in Time with Artist Deborah Macy
Art can be many things to many different people. For some, art is freedom. For others, its illusion, or fantasy, or the answer to an unanswerable questions. Art can imitate life, and it can also illustrate our dreams.
If paintings are in fact dreams, then artist Deborah Macy’s dream world is set to the backdrop of the 1920s or 1930s Massachusetts. At a time when many women spend their days in long, beautiful gowns, life was simpler, and the pace was more leisurely. The Bay State painter has spent a large part of her career using her talents to transport herself and an appreciative audience back in time.
According to Angus Bailey who wrote about a grass-roots organization in 1976, with his account of the start-up updated by Roger S.
