There are Places I Remember:

Boston, not the town in England, but the one in MA.  It’s home of the oldest public park (the commons) and the oldest baseball stadium still being used (Fenway).  It is site of the largest art heist at the Gardner Museum in 1990 and the oldest university (Harvard).  Home of the Boston Celtics (most NBA titles of any club) and Cheers (I’ll drink to that).


Saying of the Week

Whoa!  (Paul Revere)

Actually he said this:  no matter what you can do, you’ll never run away from you.

Word of the Day
