One of our fabulous Educator's posted this on our internal home page. It's a look at the comments left in our "keeper's log inside the lighthouse tower." Thought I'd share it good and bad.

Grimm Window Cleaning said our windows were smeared. (Editors Note: They are sometimes in a nor-easter; it's the salt spray that does it; or it could be sticky kids fingers....lots of those in this life too. Thanks for telling us! In the old days they hung off a board called a cradle to paint and clean them.)
