Interview with a Veteran- Mitchel Durfee

An exclusive interview with Army Veteran, CEO and founder of Grunts Move Junk- Mitchel Durfee.

Q: What made you choose to enlist in the military?

A: Growing up, I came from a family that all served. My dad, my dad’s dad, my sister, and my uncles, so it was partially in my genetics and like many others that witnessed the attacks on 9/11 it gave me even more clarity, with my decision to join the Army. For me it was an opportunity for me to grow and protect our country on the highest level.

1) Glastenbury Mountain- There has been a long time mystery surrounding Glastenbury Mountain. Many claim the mountain to be cursed and haunted. This theory started with the native Americans who refused to go to Glastenbury Mountain because they feared that the land was cursed. At that point they only used the land to bury their dead. There have been a large number of murders that have taken place on the mountain dating back to 1892, perhaps earlier. There has also been the mystery of the strange disappearances that took place starting in 1943 as well as UFO sightings. Source

De-clutter Me!- Featured Business of the Week

De-clutter Me!

Owner: Ellen Gurwitz

Email: clearclutternow@gmail.com

Phone: (802) 598-3639

Website: clearclutternow.wordpress.com

How it started:

“After careful consideration and with the encouragement of some friends, I launched De-clutter Me! in 2013. After some time, I realized that the real inspiration for the business was some seven years earlier while helping my best friend, who lives in the desert Southwest. She, whom I’ve known since the fourth grade, was going through chemotherapy treatments. I flew there to support her and, hopefully, also to have some fun. Her house was a mess. We spent about 10 hours working in the kitchen, since I wanted it to be a healthy and workable space for her to prepare food for herself and her family. The sense of satisfaction from helping my friend stuck with me, even if in the back of my mind. Bonus points – she was pleased with our work together and, to my great relief, recovered from her cancer and still is very much with us.” Read More

Junk Removal and Dump Runs

Weekends are even tougher as most are only open for a short time on Saturday’s and are closed on Sunday’s. Instead of having to leave work early or taking a day off and using your vacation time to go to the dump (yuck, who wants to waste their vacation time on that?) why not call Grunts Move Junk to do it for you?
