Blu-ray this

The continuous dynamics of technology driven by what the Japanese coined as KAIZEN (KY’zen) or continuous improvement requires us to learn how to change on a regular basis. In that regard, the next-generation optical disc Blu-ray format was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video (HD)
Along with five times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs. Blu-ray can be made backwards compatible with CDs and DVDs through the use of a BD/DVD/CD compatible optical pickup unit. We will be providing a limited amount in the Blu-ray format soon and as the price and market change will have not choice than to purchas everything in the new Blu-ray Standard.

Farmington in Connecticut, Second Revised Edition

The Farmington Historical Society‘s "Farmington in Connecticut, Second Revised Edition" was presented to me here by Farmington Room Librarian, Ann Arcari. Ann is a long standing Farmington History authority and a member of the Farmington Historical Society. The book is a wonderful gift and may be purchased from any society member. Furthermore, while talking history with Ann, the concept of Farmington Libraries sponsoring an essay contest on the importance of lieutenant general, comte de Rochambeau, commanded the French expeditionary army sent to help the American Revolution during 1780 to 1782 was raised. Since Rochambeau passed through Farmington, I believe this can become a wonderful way to give our students a better understanding of local history’s global meaning.
