Pressure Test

OK, so under pressure from Randy and friends, I’m testing my ability to share short “tweet”-esque posts, with images of food (going back to my adventurous gastronomic days). Here, for your approval, is my late morning snack.  I hope you enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed this chocolate.

A Different Sort of Evolution

When I was a kid, parents always said “Go outside, the fresh air will do you good.” Despite my nerdy exterior, you may be shocked to know that I spent quite a bit of time outside as a child. For 4 or 5 years, my brother and I had daily swimming lessons (Monday through Friday) every summer. […]

A Day for Dad’s

After having friends over for games and dinner on Friday night (sounds like a broken record), Randy and I drove down to the Cape on Saturday morning to spend Father’s Day with my parents. After getting some lunch at Cooke’s Seafood (meh), Randy and I spent the afternoon at South Cape Beach (beautiful day). We […]

Where Does the Time Go?

In May I was really looking forward to June, though admittedly with a bit of apprehension.  We had a lot of things planned and only 30 days to squeeze them all in: my friend, Mark, visited from Paris for 5 days, Randy’s friend, Kate, visited for 5 days a few days later, Pride was mid-month, […]

Dripping with Pride

Last week was Pride week for Boston and it (more or less) concluded with the big parade. The Boston Globe has reported that this event is now Boston’s largest after First Night. In fact, I recently read that it surpasses the Southie Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in attendance (upwards of 500,000 people or more). It […]

One Down, One to Go

My friend, Mark, left on bright and early on Tuesday morning (I left the house to bring him to the airport at 4:45 in the morning). All in all, it was a great trip, despite some pretty spectacular storms that roared through Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. It’s pretty pathetic that it takes out-of-town guests […]

I’ve Been to a Marvelous Party

My friend, Mark, arrived from Paris on Friday night so he was able to participate in our typical Ameican evening of ordering take-out food (wings, fries, onion rings) and card games. I think he was in heaven, despite the jetlag that began to kick in toward the end of the evening. On Saturday we expected […]

The Heat Is On

…in more ways than one. Not only is the heat and humidity in a depressing trend (upwards) but I’m also getting pressure to blog more. I was hoping to wait to post again until I renamed and edited the photos from our trip to post in my online gallery, but popular demand (well, if two […]

Ah, Montreal

Randy and I had a great time in Montreal. The weather cooperated quite nicely…and the smoke from the Quebec forest fires appeared to blow away from the city so we didn’t even notice it until we were driving back through Vermont and New Hampshire. We made really good time driving up, even stopping in Montpelier, […]
