I didn't know there was an lj group for Amherst. Strikes me as weird for some reason. Anybody ever actually come here?

Wow! It's been a while!

Amherst hasn't dropped off the face of the earth, which is all well and good. It IS desperately in need of livening up though...as is this journal.

I'm going to make it a plus account so we can have polls and whatnot.

I was also thinking that it would be nice to make photo posts here so that we can share our pictures of the town and surrounding area. Maybe even a photo contest!


I don't know if this post is allowed in the community, if not, let me know or delete it.

Amherst driving

My car broke down in Amherst tonight. How fortuitous!

You know, I really miss the arcade they had uptown. I had so much fun there.

I REALLY miss Amherst's "Redwood Steak and Mushroom Subs". The Redwood Takeout  use to be located beside the Amherst post office! *Sigh*  They were the best!

Last night was the first time I ever say Amherst on TV. That was a new experience for me, since I live in Toronto and have never seen Amherst get that kind of national attention on any television network before. It was cool. It was on the CBC series Life and Times. The episode was about Terry Fox and it mentioned that Amherst really came through for him during the initial Marathon of Hope after most of NS had not. I think Amherstonians raised something like $4000.00. One of the DJs from CKDH played an interview he did with Fox and they showed Victoria street. Pretty neat.
