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

9:30 AM  Sal's Pizza   Common Victualler License 


  1. Does this mean Sal's Pizza is operating with out a proper License ?

  2. Oh, yes. That is exactly what this means.

  3. Prove it. Prove they are operating without a proper license.

  4. OMG. Give it a rest. I was being sarcastic when answering the person who made the first comment. Of course they are operating with a license.

  5. RU Kidding: you should take more care when answering such questions. You're the only one who knows you're being "sarcastic"

  6. Apparently, you were the only person that did not know.

  7. Guess what? According to the Southbridge Evening News, they did indeed open without a license!

  8. Quote From The Southbridge Evening NewsMonday, November 29, 2010

    "Technically, the restaurant should have opened after receiving the license, but the owners had already received clearance from the Board of Health and an occupancy certificate, so it wasn't a big deal," said Town Administrator Shaun Suhoski.

    "If you review the section in the permitting guidebook that deals with the permits issued by the Board of Selectmen, the CV license isn't listed," Creamer stated. "We need to be more efficient in communicating what is required and expected of businesses and residents."

  9. Who knew?! I have to work on my sarcasm.

    (I am, of course, being sarcastic)
