By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:34AM / Saturday, April 27, 2019

Director Brian Cruey says the 1885 estate is adding more events in the shoulder seasons to attract new visitors.  STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — As if by magic, the woodland trail at Naumkeag is bursting forth with yellow and white blooms that will continue over the next several weeks.    That magic is the result of more than 60,000 daffodil bulbs that were planted last fall in scattered groups along the trail and wooded hillside to mark the return of spring and to entice visitors the historic home during what had been the off-season.   The first annual Daffodil Festival that opened Thursday — and the hugely popular "Winterlights" last December —

The Independent Investor: CBD Is a Real Market
By Bill Schmick,
05:28PM / Thursday, April 25, 2019
Cannabidiol is popping up all over the country. Local drug stores, supermarkets and health food shops, among other retailers, can't seem to get enough of this stuff on the shelves. Is this a fad, a fake, or does it have some real health benefits?   It's called CBD, for short, and this oil can be eaten, inhaled, and/or applied to the skin.  It is a substance extracted from the flowers and buds of the marijuana and hemp plant. And no, before you ask, you can't get high from it.     Back in the day, (when I had hair to my shoulders, along with my buckskin jacket) I simply smoked marijuana or ate it in cookies. It contained THC. THC, a chemical, attaches to

'Teen Spirit': Youth, Not Wasted on the Young
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
05:19PM / Thursday, April 25, 2019

If it's true that everything has a purpose, that there are clues to our lives in all that passes before us, especially a movie like "Teen Spirit" that I'd never see if I weren't a film critic, then what's Max Minghella's tale about a young lady's angst and ambitions trying to tell me? 

I'm a long ways away from the joys and sufferings of my teen-aged years. Any meditations in that rearward direction are generally devoted to the vivacity that permeated my days of immortality, when wearing the right jacket at a specific time was less a health consideration than a statement of how cool I was. But indeed there were times during those fires of spring

Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:07AM / Wednesday, April 24, 2019

It's almost impossible to save too much for retirement. After all, you could spend two, or even three, decades as a retiree. And retirement is not cheap – even if you maintain a relatively modest lifestyle, some of your expenses, especially those involving health care, may continue to rise over the years. Consequently, you will need several sources of reliable income – one of which might be a fixed annuity.

Fixed annuities are essentially contracts between investors and insurance companies. When you purchase a fixed annuity, the insurer will guarantee the principal and a minimum rate of interest. This means the money you invest in a fixed annuity is designed never to drop
