by Nancy Jenkins, CRB, CRS

Self.com has published a report of the healthy and happiest cities for women. While our fair city didn’t rate as well as Honolulu, HI (#1) or as poor as Detroit, MI (#100), Burlington did come in  the top 5 with a respectable #5.  Last year, 2005 saw Burlington, VT rated #4 of the top 5. The report was based on 40 different  types  of criteria including; death and disease rates, obesity, smoking, exercise, environmental indicators, community resources and lifestyle habits.

UVM Landscape Change Program

by Nancy Jenkins, CRB, CRS
Here is a website I recently discovered and found of interest, http://www.uvm.edu/perkins/landscape/. It is The University of Vermont's Landscape Change Program, an online archive of historic Vermont photos. Many of photos are from the 1800’s and compared side by side with photos from today.
 
One that I found particularly interesting is this 1859 photo of Burlington's City Hall Park taken from the Vermont House. It’s very interesting to see the changes that have taken place in the last 150 years.
 
I hope you enjoy this website as much as I did. If you find anything of particular interest please share by adding a comment at the end of this blog post.
