Connecticut has been making cool things for centuries. This morning I want to talk about two things to add to that long, long list.

We all remember “it takes a licking and keeps on ticking” – Timex, of course. Timex was started in Waterbury in eighteen-fifty-four, and they just started making a new high-end line of watches, we will tell you all details!

AND
 

Summertime fun is in full swing with lots happening this weekend, including Connecticut’s Historic Gardens Day on Sunday.

This is a special state-wide celebration in honor of Connecticut’s Historic Gardens, which consists of fifteen sites, many of which are hosting special activities this Sunday. We'll give you a few!
