Blogs R Us!

Welcome to the next generation of the Barque Hill website. This is a new blog area which yours truly will endeavor to keep both interesting and informative when and as the mood strikes…hope you will too.

For now I will call my scribbles

The Neighbourly News

1. Holiday Greetings from your Board… We hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season. Lots of goings on, rumors are flying that folks want to go out caroling or is that Carol wants to go out folk dancing or, well anyway, Have a Happy and a Merry however you plan to spend it.

2. FIOS, really no kidding I am sure by now you think this is never going to happen but fear not dear blogfan, there is hope. Verizon has this project in the works and National Grid hopes to remove those 30 or so ugly, scary extra poles by next spring. When we are able to have service in the neighborhood we are going to be contacted by a Verizon marketing rep to discuss volume pricing under their MDU so again if FIOS is of interest, let us know at

3. Liking the new facelifts? So how do you like the work we have done this fall to improve the look of our entrances? With thanks to Hugh Spurway for driving this project and to all of you for your input, it’s beginning to look a lot nicer as you come and go, whichever way you choose to cruise. Thanks for so many of you taking the time and getting your dues in earlier than ever so we can keep budgeting in these kinds of improvements and ongoing neighborhood beautification efforts.

4. Got Social? A bunch of you have asked how come we did not do a late Fall social…We have been a little tight on the greenery in order to get some more of the real live greenery in place before winter. So, if you missed us all getting together and want to see the Tinker’s Son Spring Fling come back next year, let us know.

That’s it for now. You know the drill by now…call me old fashioned but 20 still seems like plenty.

For your Board, working for you…
