The shelves at Color Me Mine?s studios teem with whimsical bisque-pottery pieces?pony and princess figurines, piggy banks, and kitty-cat mugs?each stark white and waiting for the brush strokes of a budding artist. That artist might be a birthday boy at a party or a grown-up unwinding at a girls' night out. No previous experience is required, as the studio staff dispenses plenty of painting tips, stencils, and artistic inspiration. Afterwards, the staff will fire the resulting pieces, which can then be used as d?cor or dinnerware thanks to Color Me Mine's lead-free, food-safe, paints.

From their nests at Plymouth Municipal Airport and Norwood Municipal Airport, New England Helicopter Academy?s Schweizer Model 300 helicopters lift fledgling aviators into the skies for flights ranging from introductory runs to intensive training courses. Combining the choppers? precise handling with academy president Rick Smith?s rigorous training regimen, pilots-to-be learn to expertly handle real-life flying situations such as landing at uncontrolled airports, flying in inclement weather, and airlifting bananas to King Kong. In addition to serving as mid-air classrooms, choppers also treat students to sky-high sightseeing, with training flights often motoring over New England landmarks including the Cape Cod coastline and cities such as Boston and Providence.
