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

Update On A Close Shave

It arrived.  My order from Harry' arrived yesterday afternoon.  I opened the box, and surveyed my new shaver, and blades.  I took it all in.  The understated packaging, the color of the razor holder with its wooden finial at the end, and how it did not look like a Gillette anything.  Then, I proceeded to shave.

I won't tell you that these blades that I wrote about a few days ago gave me the smoothest shave without any pulling, or tugging that I have ever had.  I won't tell you that.

Two boxes of four razors for $15, and a holder, $15.00.  Good bye, Gillette.
I won't tell you that during my entire shave I never once felt the razor touch my skin.  My face was becoming devoid of whiskers with each pass of the razor, and the only way I knew I was shaving was because I watching myself in the mirror.

No, I won't tell you any of that.  If I told you that you would suspect I was on Harry's payroll, and that no way was it the best shave I have ever had.

No, I won't tell you any of that, but I'm not on the payroll, and it was.
