Autumn in the North Cemetery.

Sixty miles west of Boston, Massachusetts there is the small New England town of Sturbridge. Located at the junction of I-90 (The Mass Pike), and I-84 it has become known as the "Crossroads of New England". The town was first settled over 300 years ago, and like other small New England towns it has grown just enough over the years to be in a difficult place today. How do we embrace the future without forgetting how we got to our present? How do we attract the right kind of growth, and maintain who we are? And, what about our culture out here in Central Massachusetts?

These pages will cause one to think about how to protect what we have, our future direction, and how to move on in the very best way.

Those thoughts, and other ramblings, will hopefully inspire more thought, conversation, action, and occasionally a smile...

...seems to be working so far

Kharma.  Yeah, that's it.  That'll protect me.  Kharma.

I'd feel better if MADOT was involved, too.

    Yikes! It took 3 viewings to see what really happened there because there was so much other stuff going on at the same time. Isn't that lucky "escape" (or not) just the way it is when there are other things taking up your mind. Saints preserve us, we're on our own!

  2. It looks like we very well could be. For years we have been alone at the intersection of New Boston Road and Route 20, Hall road and 20/131, and Arnold road and 20. This new situation is not much different in the attention it is receiving (not receiving). Yes, "Saints preserve us".
