Wild Berries?
WHERE TO PICK WILD BERRIES?
Seeking help to find places where one person can considerately pick some raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and/or wild grapes -- when each of these appears this summer (& fall?). Either publicly accessible trails, etc., or if you have more on your own land than you need, I will be grateful!

I definitely want to do NO harm to land or vegetation anywhere.

I feel that berry craving, and the nutritional need for them. But it's not good for the budget to buy organic berries at current prices. And I'm trying hard to reduce my consumption of plastic packaging, which is sometimes part of the picture!

Thank you so much for any leads or invites!

I hope everyone is feeling safe and well. <3

A quick check of Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia...Falls,_Massachusetts) suggests that there is no obvious problem with Millers Falls. They agree that the original name was Grout's Corner, but somehow to me that seems like something you do when you make over a bathroom. . . . :-)

Yeah -- I wonder: where did Rodney's Corner come from? I never heard that one before.

Not on my end , BUT Rodney's Corner as suggested. I just stated the true name. Even Rand McNaly agrees.

I see in the Reporter that folks want to change the town name. The Falls works for me. Grouts Corner for Millers Falls ( the real name by the way ) the rest shouldn't put any panties in a knot.

Hi. Not my Dad, an old friend. He also has nomorobo on his phone. That is also a joke. His home phone announces the caller so that helps. His cell is only on when they are out and about. Only gets them on that once or twice a month. Ed

Newbie, I agree with you on the spam calls. I still can't believe the carriers allow the calls through, since (a) it takes up their valuable resources, and (b) we don't want the calls!

The federal Do Not Call is a voluntary list, and some spammers actually grab the list and use it to make calls! So, it's not a resource anyone really uses anymore. It was built for legit businesses to purge their own call lists.

I have Verizon for my cell phone (not sure if your dad is on a cell or not), and they've introduced a new system where you get the name of the people calling, if they're legit or the number is real and actually registered with them, and "POTENTIAL SPAM" if not.

There are also apps you can install, like Mr. Number and RoboKiller, which I use. When a call comes in from a known spammer number, it blocks the call and you never hear it ring.

They'll get it right one of these days... either the carriers (Verizon, AT&T, etc), or the phone makers / software vendors.

I was at my old Dudes this morning and he got 5 crap calls. The new law on crap calls is the biggest joke since Trump. How can you report a number that doesn't excist (sp)? Wonder how many political hacks got jobs on do not call. ED

Problems With Greenfield Recorder Delivery
Hello Stash - yup, that's the person. I guess swiping is a possibility -- maybe I'll have to look into setting up a camera or something. Other than that, we're doing okay -- hope you are, too.

Problems With Greenfield Recorder Delivery
Has anyone else in the Millers Falls area been having problems with their Greenfield Recorder delivery? We've had the same carrier for years, and they've been very reliable, but lately I've missed at least one paper a week. I've got a name and address for the carrier, but no phone number. If it happens during the week, I can get the paper delivered the next day, which is okay but not great, but today the office is closed.

Question
Does any one know what the folks that deliver the Reporter get per issue delivered? The young lad that delivered mine has never let me down and I would like to make sure he still gets paid for my delivery at the least during the digital delivery. Thanks and STAY WELL......

Face Masks For Hospitals
Hi Chris,

Thanks for contributing to the mask-making effort to help keep more folx safe!

This info about where to drop off face masks was posted this morning on the Montague Central Mutual Aid listserve (montague-central-mutual-aid@googlegroups.com):

"The Western MA Nurses Association/Baystate Franklin Medical Nurses has established a safe collection spot for donations of PPEs (including homemade masks) on the porch of 74 Crescent St, in Greenfield. See attached image for more info. This is Rudy Renaud's house (former Greenfield City Councillor, works for MA Nurses Assoc), and I got the information from her via Facebook. Re homemade masks, she said: "People in the community can use the homemade masks while we are looking for n95s for HCPs. We will sort through them so it’s good to make them if you can."

Face Masks For Hospitals
I had heard that local hospitals were looking for people to sew face masks until the shortage of PPE can be addressed. I've been working on some, but I don't know where to bring them. The hospitals probably don't want people walking in off the street. Does anyone know of a drop off location for either Baystate Franklin or Cooley Dick?

Senior Center
Hi. Hope all are well. I'm wondering if anyone is aware if the center will still be doing the AARP tax prep on Friday? If not I'll have to make some other plans for Mr. & Mrs. Old Dude to get them done. Thanks and STAY HEALTHY Please. ED.

Covid-19 Issues
Hello,
As this virus spreads, if there are elders or compromised folks in the community who have no one who can help out, please contact LifePath 413 773 5555, or your local church or helping org. such as Montague Catholic Social Ministries. 413-863-4804

Needs can also be posted here for folks to help out if /when they can, but this shouldn't be the only place to ask for help.

We can flatten the curve of COVID-19 by due diligence of hand washing, no hand-shaking or close contact, (social distancing) and by self-quarantining if you develop flu or flu-like symptoms.

Be safe everyone.
