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

Part II: Home Projects, Happiness, and Cable TV

Ta Da.
"Who's the man?  I'm da man.  Woohoo.  Awright now.  Lookin' fine."

Sorry, did I think that out loud?
Note to self:  Positive self talk is a good thing.  Talking to ones self is not.

  1. Okay, now, Mary, it's time to break in song! "For he's a jolly good fellow! For he's a jolly good fellow! For he's a jelly good felll el oh... you gotta bake 'im a pie!"

  2. To "Atta Boy!", Mary is taking me out to dinner tonight! A pie would be great, but she suggested Rovezzi's.

    I like the way she thinks.

  3. Rovezzi's is a good alternative. 'Keeps the kitchen cool and leaves time to watch the new TV together over a cupa.
    In our house, at our age, the two most important things in the kitchen are the TV and the microwave.
    Getting a TV installed in the kitchen is just another little milestone along your circular path of life. And the fact that you installed it yourself...priceless.

  4. @ Enjoy Life: Rovezzi's was very good, and the service is always excellent. Nice to be spoiled by both Mary, and our server Tiffany. Doing it myself keeps me out of trouble. :-)
