View from Stark's Knob

Even locals don't know where Stark's Knob is. It's just north of Schuylerville, NY. It is historically significant for its role in blocking the retreat of British troops from Saratoga in 1777.

But other than that, it just has a nice view of the Hudson River fallsv at Schuylerville. You'll probably never see it in one of our books, so I thought I would share it with you here.

Academy for Lifelong Learning

Sponsored by Empire State College, we did a double program on the French and Indian War and what we found in our 300 Miles of History canoe trip for the Academy for Lifelong Learning in Saratoga Springs on April 30th.
We had fun, as did all of the participants as exhibited by this photo of happy people all around.
Contact us to see if we can make your group just as happy as this group. and click on our Speakers Bureau for more details.

Pharoah Lake, etc.

Been busy trying to pay the bills by revamping and combining my books Common Sense Supervision and Common Sense Leadership. They will be combined and edited ito a book titiled Common Sense Management, due out in Spring 2009 from Ten Speed Press of Berkeley, CA.. We'll announce it then, as well.

In the meantime hiked about 2.5 miles into Pharoah Lake in the Adirondacks, just north of Lake
George, NY. Met a nice couple in there and R.G. Hoag sent us this pic for the Blog. Thanks and hope you enjoy it.
