Write a Letter to Your Ancestors

Trains replaced stagecoaches for mail delivery in Vermont by the mid 1800s. Rail service made delivering the mail quicker and cheaper. Through mail or telegrams, Vermonters kept in touch with their relatives who had left to serve in the Civil War or make their way out west. We know of at least 10 post offices in Vermont that operated in the train depot. In these instances, the postmaster often did triple duty, serving also as the station agent and telegraph agent.

Roll your mouse over the mail boxes below and click to explore some examples of Vermont letters.
Then write a letter to your ancestors in the guestbook below. How would you describe yourself?
What news would you share with them? Where do you think they lived?Mailslots

Vmax Male Enhancement When working with weights, start with smaller machines first. The smaller muscles in your body tire more quickly than the larger ones. Therefore it is smart to start with small machines or barbells before moving on to the larger machines. Then, as you work your greater muscles, the small ones get a much-needed break.

What has shown to work on this condition, to help get rid of the redness, is to use a sonic skincare brush. This may be of great use for people who have this condition.
Complete Derma If you have a kid who's having itchy or dry skin, apply a skin moisturizer a couple of times each day. Stick to moisturizers that aren't fragrant, as those tend to be for adults.

Vderma Do not forget to protect your lips with moisture too. Especially in the winter months, the air will be very dry. This often leads to dry, cracked lips, which is very painful. However, if you apply moisturizer regularly and take care not to lick your lips while in the cold air, then you can avoid this problemVderma If your skin is oily, it is still important to use a moisturizer. Be certain to use moisturizers following each face wash and prior to applying makeup.
