It wasn’t a white Christmas, but hopefully you still had a wonderful and relaxing day. So, just how much did we spend this year? And what's the best-selling Christmas song of all time? Find the answers in Christmas Fun Facts and Trivia. And if you were ever wondering what happens when to find out for you.
With the presents unwrapped and 2013 rapidly approaching, Patch spent some time this week looking back at the year. Nearly 100 individuals filed for business trade names in 2012 in Stonington. But while we welcomed many new businesses we also said goodbye to a few favorites. U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman said goodbye this week too. Lieberman visited a Groton diner to say goodbye and thank his supports as one of four stops planned as part of his farewell tour.
We also looked back at the Top 10 Google Searches of 2012, and later today we’ll take a look at some of the books that made headlines in 2012.
With 2012 coming to a close it’s also time to start thinking about New Year’s Resolutions. According to USA.gov the top New Year's resolutions, are: drink less alcohol, eat healthy food, get a better education, get a better job, get fit, lose weight, manage debt, manage stress, quit smoking, reduce, reuse, and recycle, save money, take a trip and volunteer to help others. If you’re looking for a different type of New Year’s Resolution there’s always learning something new such as beekeeping. The Denison Farm Market Master and the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center are partnering up to offer a beginner beekeeping class this January.
