MGC puzzles at La Vita Gustosa -
www.La Vita Gustosa.com As of Late June 2004, there are 32 MGC Puzzles located in the Tap Room at this wonderful Italian Restaurant nestled in the quaint new England Village of East Haddam, CT. Less than 100 yards from the East Bank of the Connecticut River, adjacent the historic "Goodspeed Opera House" and locally famous Gelston House Inn. Come in for an early evening dinner, and try a sampling of my puzzles. The puzzles offered range in piece count from 8 pieces to about 125 pieces. Most puzzlers can solve them in times usually under an hour. If you take longer than an hour, then maybe you need to visit here more often to practice your puzzling skills. Ha ha.

Topic #3
MGC puzzles in the Catskills, New York State -
www.Riedlbauers.com MGC Puzzles Family & friends frequently visit our favorite getaway in the Catskill Mountains of New York State. Riedlbauers Resort is located in Round Top New York, and is a German American resort for the family. When ever we visit, I always bring a few wooden jigsaw puzzles along for other guests to enjoy.

See our vacation schedule page of the web site for details of when we will be visiting Riedlbauers... always in August for 10 days!

Topic #4

Topic #7
Digital image files now accepted on an even larger scale.
I now have the technology to produce images up to 42" x 58" in size. Puzzles from images of this size will have rounded corners in order for me to make the puzzle. Using a tiling effect, I have made puzzles that are as as large as 8 feet by 12 feet! AMAZING! Once all of the tile puzzle sections slide together, they form the completed image much like that of a highway billboard! Click here.

Topic #8
Are you Planning a VACATION this year???

The Connecticut River Valley is a WONDERFUL place to visit.
Turn back the clock to the way New England was in the 1800's... Make your appointment with me to stop in for a visit, see my puzzles, see my art selection of thousands of prints and pictures, and maybe you will be inclined to order a personalized puzzle or two. I am just 12 miles north of I-95, along the Connecticut river, about midway between New York City and Boston, and 30 minutes south of Hartford..

In addition to visiting with us.. there are quite a few great local attractions within a 20 minute drive of our town. They are as follows. (Essex Steam Train Museum - Gillette Castle - The Connecticut River Ferry (Seasonal) - The East Haddam Playhouse Theatre - The Chester Playhouse - Nilsson Art Studios - Both the Chester and Essex Boat Marinas - and only 30 minutes away is the famous Mystic Seaport. There are also many dozens of fine antique shops in this area for you antique lovers! Perfect for a family vacation any time of the year! For more information, www.CTRiverValley.com

OK... that is all I have time for for this Newsletter... if I think of anything else to add, I will modify this page in the upcoming weeks... so you might want to check back again later.
