The Historic Districts Commision – Concord, Massachusetts

March 31st, 2012 · No Comments

Yesterday I wrote a post about a blog I found that talked about a couple building a new downsized house next door to their old Big House in Concord, Massachusetts. And I wondered about possible problems with any historical district rules. That’s enough of a recap for here; the original post is right under this […]

A Concord, Massachusetts blog

March 30th, 2012 · 1 Comment

I came across a blog written by a seemingly very nice lady who lives in Concord, Massachusetts. Yes, this is THE Concord I’m talking about – THE Concord where the shot heard ’round the world originated. She and her husband are building a new downsized house next to their older, big one. I was glancing […]

First Mother mowing

March 29th, 2012 · 2 Comments

I wasn’t going to go and then I was and then I wasn’t and finally I did. I went and mowed at Mother’s. I knew I might have trouble getting a mower started and was steeled for it. I should have been wearing a lead shield; I think I believe little animals that build nest […]

A difference in opinion

March 27th, 2012 · 1 Comment

The pronunciation of words – and, by the way, pronunciation one of the words involved – was the substance of a disagreement between Summer and me yesterday. She was leaving the room and used the word “preferably” and I corrected her with “preferably” She came back, took my laptop an started looking at dictionary pronunciations. […]

We’re proud

March 25th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Last week I got an email, as did Der Bingle, from LZP about his son’s commendation. It came through the morning after Mr. Feller died and things were hectic. But today, I want to take time to mention it here and then highlight the email response Der Bingle, a former Air Force officer, sent to […]

Nightmare

March 25th, 2012 · No Comments

I had a horrible nightmare last night. And this morning the sun is often covered by widespread clouds . . . so my spirits are lifted for a moment or so and then the grey takes over. Then it happens again. If I can make it until 1 pm, more sun than clouds are predicted […]

Rev. Dan Barker – A truly kind & good man

March 24th, 2012 · No Comments

Okay, I’m not linking to the story in the News-Sun because I don’t think you can see it online if you are not a subscriber. I am going to feature it here, though, because if there is one story that should be out there for all to see, it is this one. It was written […]

So, PB&J eateries are following our example

March 22nd, 2012 · 1 Comment

Hey, we’ve been living in this peanut butter world for over a half century now, cherishing the comfort food of a folded over piece of bread with peanut butter in the middle . . . and feeling at home by the sound of a screen door in summer and the heavy thump of a solid […]

A funeral

March 21st, 2012 · No Comments

My good friend, Kathryn Feller, who will be 95 on Friday,  buried her husband Emory today.  He was 98 and would have turned 99 in July. Kathryn was an example of grace and a determination that overcame frailty.  On an unusually hot day in March – 85 degrees – she showed the stuff of which […]

Emory Feller: 1913-2012

March 19th, 2012 · No Comments

A lot of people have been saying a lot of nice things about Emory Feller today – and most of them were those who work at North Ridge Village Nursing Home. That’s because he was 98 and had outlived almost all of his contemporaries. The quote heard most often was: He was a real gentleman. […]
