Nashville, Tenn., soulful folk trio the Wood Bothers released their seventh studio album, Kingdom in My Mind, in January. Explaining the title in the band’s bio, singer and bass player Chris Wood says, “Everyone has these little kingdoms in their minds, and the songs on this album all explore the ways we find peace in them.” Improvisational jam sessions between siblings Chris and Oliver, along with drummer Jano Rix, gave way to the 11-song collection that Live for Live Music calls “their most exploratory album to date.” Local soul singer Kat Wright opens the band’s Queen City concert.

Robert "Bobby" Miller died last night, at 84. Among Vermont's most generous business success stories, he and his wife gave away tens of millions to all sorts of #VT causes. Bobby was also full of wisdom and a real original.
Rest in peace.

There are several right turn lanes in Burlington that I now find very confusing because they overlap with bike paths. Why is there no arrow on the ground so cars know they should go there? Are they even supposed to go there? We need signage.

The house at 111 Ferguson is on the corner of Ferguson and Richardson St. There is a water pipe extending from the house on the RIchardson side. Water frequently gushes out of this pipe and floods the sidewalk. In winter this turns to ice which never melts and it makes that section of the sidewalk impossible to walk on. In better weather, the water floods the sidewalk which is also a problem. I think this pipe should be routed somewhere else. No idea where the water comes from that is spilling out of this house.
