    That's funny - there used to be a story that Wallingford was in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most bars per capita, or sells the most liquor per capita, or something like that. I don't think it's actually true, though... but we do have a lot of bars and liquor stores. It's a bit of a town joke. :D

    Love WallyWorld! Used to have family (my grandmother's inlaws and outlaws) that were engravers at the silver companies. I live down the street in North Haven.
