Stay home people. I know restaurants are begging you to come out, but stay home. Get groceries only as needed and stay home or outdoors with your family. Anything else is negligent. We have to stop it NOW, not in a week. #btv

Rebecca's Corner 💭
Burlington is a very dog friendly city, and with that comes options for where to take your dog for veterinary care. We bring Hallie to Green Mountain Veterinary Hospital. They have two offices, one very close to our house, and one on Williston Road. This week, Hallie will be going to the vet for some extended bloodwork. As we were planning for the appointment we did some research to compare costs before scheduling. We found the cost of the bloodwork mostly consistent among the various animal hospitals. It was good to know and gave us confidence in our decision to stick with Green Mountain. When choosing a veterinarian, it is important to find an office with veterinarians you trust, extended hours, and easy accessibility.

The dirt craters that settled in on Briggs Street near City Market In 2017 are as prolific as ever. While I like that it makes me feel like I'm driving on the set of an 1849 western, it's really not the greatest look.
Is it time to rethink whatever deal was struck to allow this street to remain in such rough shape?

Random Burlingtonian Quote of the Day 📝
In the late eighteenth and the greater part of the nineteenth centuries appeared the first marked cultural shift in the attitude taken toward change. Under the names of indefinite perfectibility, progress, and evolution, the movement of things in the universe itself and of the universe as a whole began to take on a beneficent instead of hateful aspect.
