Bernice's Restaurant in Guilford, Connecticut

  1. When was the last time you ate at Bernice's?
  2. More importantly, when was the last time anybody named anyone Bernice?
*according to this chart, the answer to #2 is: Sometime in the 1980's.

Guilford, Connecticut: Has the third largest collection of historic houses in New England. It was also voted one of the top 100 Places to Live in the United States in 2005. I can't speak for what Guilford's like these days, I mean, a lot can happen in two years and it could be a huge craphole now but the yachtclubs are full so I doubt it.

This is the god's honest truth. My grandma's name was Bernice.

Yeah!!!! My town is famous. I have lived here for 8 years.
And I have to say...I have NO IDEA where this place was.
As far as what Guilford is like now....well, the historic homes are still there, the shoreline is still there...
but you have to look past rows of McMansions and parking lots full of Land Rovers to actually see them.

whoa - how did veronica ever derive from bernice? ah, the olden days...

i believe the "best towns to live" rankings are actually based on "the nicest mcmansions"

Liz - Bethesda/Potomac was not on the list for nicest cities to live. But Ellicott City was #4 in 2006. Ellicott City has some nice McMansions, but come on...
