She is passionate about animal rescue and live music - traveling across the country to see a favorite band is a pretty regular occurrence!

One of the world’s tallest Uncle Sam statues is in Connecticut, and he’s got a surprisingly interesting history! This massive statue of Uncle Sam left the state for many years, but returned in 2019. He now proudly stands over the Danbury Railway Museum, greeting visitors and locals alike in his star-spangled suit. There’s some debate as to whether he’s actually the world’s tallest Uncle Sam, but in any event, he is a beloved Connecticut resident.
