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

We went to the new Bentley's Pub on Rout 20 where the Picadilly Pub once was.

Same pub, different name.

    We went the first weekend they were open. Not a good idea. Hope things have improved service-wise. But, yes, nothing exciting plus they don't have the Black and Blue Salad on the menu anymore. How's the pub across from Ocean State? T J O'Brien's still makes the best burger, IMO. What I really want is a good Chinese place - I don't bother to keep any local takeout Chinese menus in my collection sadly.

  2. I have always believed that it takes more than a sign out front to make a restaurant, or any business, a good one. Fish and Chips at TJ's are great, and I have had good luck with the Chinese Restaurant on Rout 20.
