Goodbye, Connecticut; Hello, Virginia

Tech-media-tainment is moving its operations from Connecticut to Virginia.
TMT has been in Fairfield County, Conn., for two years, after relocating from Illinois.
Connecticut is a beautiful state with a lot to offer. It has many parks and nature preserves and even residential properties are surrounded by trees and lush vegetation.
Our home in New Canaan is regularly visited by a red-tailed hawk, turkeys, deer and even coyote.
Connecticut has its quirks – no alcoholic beverage sales on Sunday, tags sales instead of yard sales, and recycling deposits on beverage cans and bottles. Road signs only identify the crossroads but not the road you’re on, which is annoying when you’re lost.
New Canaan is a big village with a lot of famous residents. Among those who live here are NBC News anchor Brian Williams; NBC Today Show host Ann Curry; singer Paul Simon and his wife, singer Edie Brickell; actor-singer Harry Connick Jr. and his wife, model Jill Goodacre; and General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt.
My favorite places here include New Canaan’s Mead Park, Norwalk’s Maritime Aquarium and Devil’s Den Preserve in Weston.
Adios, Constitution State.
