  THE BERKSHIRES — Happy first day of October. When I was in elementary school I remember a teacher telling our class that it was good luck to say “Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit” at the beginning of each month. Why? I never asked, but after a quick Google search last night I found that it’s an old(…)

THE BERKSHIRES — For many, New Years is the time to regroup, refresh, make resolutions and get your life together.

BERKSHIRES — I hope everyone had a nice Labor Day weekend! I am sad to say that I will only be doing the Weekend Lowdown’s every other week since I will soon be busy with school at Berkshire Community College. It has surely been a great experience being an intern at BFF. I would like to(…)

THE BERKSHIRES — School is officially here, for most! And by next week the 2014-2015 academic year will have begun for everyone.

BERKSHIRES- Greetings! I am sure everyone is trying to thoughtfully schedule every last fun-filled event in their planners that the Berkshires has to offer this summer.

BERKSHIRES — It is officially August, can you believe it? Before you know it we will see pigments of fall on the trees. I have had one busy week because I started my new job at Marshalls Department Store in Lenox. Unfortunately I have not had time to go on any good hikes, which I love to(…)
