Have a great 4th of July Holiday!
« on: July 01, 2017, 08:10:32 PM »

I saw an article on my phone yesterday that rated states by 'patriotism' and Michigan had a fairly low rating.  I'll have to see if I can find that article.

And Mass is way down the list.  Boston probably holds it own for cities.   I'll find out. I'm there now for the week.

Interesting.  Like most 'polls', the sampling can be way off.

Pretty noisy around here last night.  Deerfield had a huge display.  Could see and hear it from the porch.  Gotta keep those Chinese fireworks makers in business.....lol

I get no joy in fireworks what so ever.

If you're into history Boston is a great city.  The company I do a lot of consulting for is located there so I get out to Boston fairly often.  Pretty good food in the Italian district plus good seafood at the wharf as well.

No doubt.....that is a history rich pocket there that extends down into DC, Baltimore, and most parts of Virginia.  Virginia is cool for a history buff.....has that blend from Revolutionary to Civil War that blends into that state.

NB, I've been to Boston many times when I worked at OC. We hired a computer outfit in Cambridge close to the Galeria. Took the Green line into Boston all the time.  Have prob eaten at a dozen different restaurants in Italian village. Walked thru there today.
Quincy market was packed.

Flying in is ok.  Driving to and there is the pits.  Boston drivers are horrible and the infrastructure is too.

Well the day has started off bright and sunny so far. 

The roads will be busy this afternoon from travelers returning home.

The scanner has been fairly quiet so far this morning.
