Danbury for better or worse

 - 

Hi and welcome to my blog. My name is Dave and I love to write. I’m a writer by trade… but I want an outlet that allowed me the freedom to write what ever I want. So here it is, you’re reading it.

I live in Danbury, Connecticut… and if you’ve ever been here you’ll know that the weather can be kinda crazy. In the summer it is hot as hell. In the winter… you can’t move for snow! You either love it orĀ  hate it. For me, it’s a pain in the butt as the snow in the winter never fails to catch me out. On the plus side, I get the odd day off of work… which is kinda bitter sweet as I’m usually stuck in my house.

So, I’m not about to talk to you about the weather for the rest of the blog. Let’s switch it up a little. So, Danbury facts! It’s a pretty small place… only either thousand people live there. It’s also pretty small by area being circa 40 square kilometers. It was settled in the late 1600s… making it one o the original settlements. During the revolutions, Danbury was an important arms store/weapons depot. In the early 1700s a ha factory was built, which was the basis for the economy for almost sixty years.

Cartus is one of the main employers in the area. They specialist in real estate and relocating people around the world. This organization was established in 1955 and is one of the leaders in its industry. I’ve been to their headquarters… it’s quite an impressive building. I have a few friends who work there… apparently its not a good company to work for, which kinda makes sense because everyone looks miserable in that place.

Boehringer-Ingelheim is another major employer in the city. This company is a pharmaceutical company… which makes them I little more boring than Cartus… but not much. They’re a very community focused organization though, as their employees are always doing charity work in the community, which is a good thing.

Every year there is an annual Danbury fate. The locals make their own food and treats and everyone goes down to eat. It’s a really nice atmosphere and we often get a local band to put on a show. There’s also magicians and other children entertainers… so it’s good for families as well as singles and couples. If you’re in the area at the time, you should really check it out!
