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

Today, the little numbers at the bottom of the page say 96019. That is the number of you that have stopped by and read my blathering since 2008. I figure if I include the eight months without a counter the number just may be over 100,000.
No, I'm not a YouTube viral sensation that records 90000 hits an hour. That would be the best. No, I'm far from it. I may not be a national writing marvel, or internet sensation, but I am the appreciative sort, and for those 96019 visits people have made it to sturbridgecommon.com, thank you, thank you very much.
Now, let's see if we can do those 96019 visits in thirty days. That would be really neat.
Go ahead, surprise me. :-)
