The Environmental Learning Centers of Connecticut, Inc. (ELCCT) is hosting its 2nd annual music festival entitled Music on the Farm.

The event will take place on July 29, 1:00-6:00pm on the Preserve located at 501 Wolcott Road, Bristol, CT. Music on the Farm will feature live musical acts, food, beverages and more. The setting for the event will be on the teaching farm of the 280-acre preserve.

Indian Rock Nature Preserve, established in 1977, has educated hundreds of thousands of children and adults about nature and the environmental since its inception. “Music and nature
go hand-in-hand, so an annual music event at the farm, where so many children participate in programs, seemed appropriate”, said Scott Heth, Executive Director of ELCCT.

The event will feature three main musical acts: Wanda Houston & HBH (back by popular demand) performing jazz and blues, Eight to the Bar performing swing and boogie, and Latanya
Farrell performing Motown music. Beer, provided by Firefly Hollow Brewing in Bristol, wine, and food items will be available for purchase.

Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.elcct.org. Advance tickets are $25 for lawn seats and $35 for tent seats. After July 27th and at the door, tickets will be $30 for lawn seats and $40 for
tent seats.

Kleenex is scrapping its range of “Mansize” tissues after 62 years, following complaints that the branding is sexist.

New self-lubricating condoms could boost their use, prevent STDs

In a step away from the traditional water- or oil-based condoms currently on the market, a team of scientists from Boston University has created a condom that is self-lubricating, becoming slippery when it comes into contact with moisture — for example, bodily fluids. The team assessed the performance of the condoms when faced with friction and then surveyed 33 people who felt the condoms […]
