Took this shot of our Stargazers this morning because I thought they looked cool. I must have shot it from 7 different angles and played around with various versions. Still wasn't sure if this was the best one but I decided to go with it after much consideration.

I tried messing with the cable ONT box for a while but it would appear to me that basically the PSU is fried, so unfortunately a tech is going to have to come out and take a look at it. Sigh.

Another shot from a few weeks ago. I don't know what happened yesterday but after around 7 PM I got really tired, like hitting a brick wall it was so sudden, so I basically just crashed and slept the night away. This happened once before a few weeks ago. Things just catch up to you over time I guess - felt like I needed a hard reset.

Over at lunch I went for a walk out back and happened to catch some butterflies fluttering around the marshy area. Made me think of Angel.

boschain (141k image)

So last night there was a power outage and it really messed up the verizon FIOS box in the cellar. I thought I had it fixed (it was doing this annoying beeping meaning that somehow it was going off battery power) so everything got unplugged and re-plugged back in. It seemed I had it working last night, but this morning when I checked it out it seemed that the box wasn't receiving any power at all even though I reset a bunch of switches. Unfortunately it would appear that a service tech may need to come out and take a look at the thing. Gotta have TV and Internet!

02:58 PM EST [Link] The Lesson [comments: 0]
heronnewton (174k image)

As we were checking out some little libraries in Newton (LD's been cleaning out her old books by giving them away to these things and taking a new one if we think it looks interesting), I happened to check out some gorge just under Route 9 we passed to see if there was anything interesting there. Overall, I'd say no, but just as I was heading back to the car this blue heron swooped down. All I had was my cellphone (LD says I should always bring my gear, and she's right, but I don't always listen!) but every time I approached nearer it would walk just a little further away. Anyways, this is the best I got. The lesson is you never know what you're going to find.

Getting psyched for upcoming Cape trip, made me want to go through some pis I took from years past, including coming across this amazing set off of Monomoy Point. Looking through them now I wonder why didn't I use more of these shots? Here's one that I thought was cute, perhaps I'll add another one of what appears to be a mother looking after her cub as well.

Couldn't help noticing that this fire lilies we planted a while back just keep coming up with more and more blooms, s I decided that might make a cool shot. Wasn't the easiest trying to get what I felt was a decent camera angle with my cellphone, but I am pleased with the result. This is what makes gardening worthwhile.

Look up!

Near the Freedom Trail, opposite the Old South Meeting House on Milk Street, is the birthplace of Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790). He was an author, diplomat, inventor, printer, and scientist. A statue of Franklin stands in front of Old City Hall, one block away on School Street.

Embedded in the wall of the building at 1 Milk Street, on the 2nd floor, is a bust of Franklin, with the label "Birthplace of Franklin."

In 1706, Benjamin Franklin was born in a humble little house on Milk Street. The old house stood a hundred and twenty years, and was greatly respected as a notable landmark. The building was destroyed by fire in 1811.

You'd think there'd be a sign or a plaque or something commemorating it but there isn't. it's actually kinda easy to miss if you aren't looking for it. I've passed it many times in my life not even knowing!

That's today's history lesson.

Another beautiful day! But today was more about reading and just relaxing in general. Did go to the grocery store for some things (place was a zoo - remind us not to go there/do that again). We also finished dropping off books at some other little libraries in Wellesley and Norwood. Good deed for the day. Grilling some salmon tonight on the grill. Keeping in Sunday simple. Back to the regular grind tomorrow.

08:29 PM EST [Link] Of Egrets and Little Libraries [comments: 0]
6216s (165k image)

After being stuck in house for days mainly because it was just to hot to do anything, today we set out to enjoy the beautiful weather. And what a gorgeous day today was. We decided to take a trip up to Gloucester Mass. One of our favorite places. After driving straight up Route 128 we decided to get some lunch - our usual lobster BLTs at this place that we like up there. Oh, beforehand LD also got some of her old books together to drop off and some Little Libraries up there that I wrote their addresses to so we could find them along the way. By far, the best one was this little one on this side street near the ocean that was done up really nice, with a lighthouse for the handle and buoys around the sides - very nautical and the best little library that I'd ever seen. It even had a guest book in it, where LD wrote a little note that we had visited and liked it so much. I ended up taking a book about the Catholic Church Scandal by Boston Globe writers that the movie Spotlight was based on so that's my next read.

While searching for some libraries along the northern shore, LD spotted the motherload of Great and Snowy Egrets. So she dropped me off because 9 times out of 10, when we notice these things there's no place to pull off. Especially here, at Goose Cove, along Route 127 with no lanes or walking areas on the sides, where everyone races along like a maniac. But sometimes one has to do what it takes to get a shot, within reason. Took many shots there of which here is one.

To round out the trip we hang out along Stacey Blvd and sat and watched the boats go under the historic drawbridge for 45 minutes or so. All in all, a very fun trip was had. Had to take advantage of this gorgeous weather. Finally we hit the center and found a place that sells tourist Gloucester shirts of which I bought one and also a little statuette of the Fisherman Statue that I will add to my tchotchke shelf.

Bar Harbor, Maine. Wish I could say I was there right now but this is actually a throwback pic I took a few years back. Guess we used to travel a bit more and further away in the earlier days but with responsibilities and being a little older it's a little harder to do it that way now. However, we can do just as many fun things around here.

Tree guy finally coming tomorrow morning to look at the trees that have been damaged since March. Hope the prognosis isn't too bad!


I've been playing this version of a game called Snake for a while now (according to the stats about 10 hours - but not all over one day - more like a couple of weeks). I've finally got to the last level, and if nobody believes me I'm attaching a screenshot to prove it. I don't think I'll be able to complete level 60 but it was a lot of fun getting there.

08:36 AM EST [Link] Fried Clam Chowder? [comments: 0]
I was watching Chronicle the other night and they showcased this place down the Cape that makes, get this, fried clam chowder. Being a hearty New Englander I like a good clam chowder - especially in the winter. The best I had ever had was at a place called the Porthole in Lynn, which sadly after decades of being around has finally shuttered it's doors and sold the land for condo development. I'm going down to the Cape in a few weeks so I think I might just have to try this - just to see what the heck it's like. I've never heard of such a thing. Hmmm, I probably should start eating healthier in general though, but it's so hard in the summer! I like all the tasty things!

09:22 AM EST [Link] Too Hot to Cook [comments: 0]
7-01-sal (111k image)

Was pretty much too hot to do anything yesterday, so got caught up on bunch of shows including one called The Last Defense. Very interesting story about a woman who may or may not have killed her children and is currently on Death Row. So far, I'm still leaning towards she did it. I also started reading and making progress on those books I purchased last week. It was a perfect day however to use the Instant Pot where we made some chicken and rice dish which is really easy and quick. To top it all off, we made a homemade salad featuring watermelon, feta, crushed cashews, lettuce from the garden, and a little bit of glaze. It's also really easy to put together and tastes really good - something about the pairing of the cashews with the feta, and then the opposing tastes of the glaze with the watermelon - truly delicious.

You never know there's a cat shaped hole in your life until you lose the cat that used to fill it. We miss you Angel. One year later and we still think of you often. Who knew that the stray behind the Blockbuster all those years ago would touch so our lives so lovingly and deep.

angel63018 (57k image)

One final note: Yesterday afternoon LD and I decided to just sit in the sunroom (Angel's favorite room in the house) and just have some silent moments. Mr. Oreo came down, after going upstairs just previously, and sat on the couch with us and also sat quietly, almost as if he knew what we were doing and wanted to be a part of it as well. He never does that, and especially not when I'm there. So to have all three of us there in a row like that (pus Angel if you include her urn) there's no way that's coincidence. Perhaps he sent his respects as well, and nobody can tell me that pets like cats are not in tune to our emotions.

Waking up this morning, was pleasantly surprised to see that the fire lilies finally opened up. They really look spectacular - very pleased with the way these turned out over the years. The Speakeasy last night was actually a pretty cool place. Food and company were very good, although it was a bit pricey. But it was for a special occasion so why not - we only go this way once. As for today, well, sadly it's the one year anniversary of Angel passing. I'll say more about that in a future post as the day goes on.

Happy Friday

Planning on going to a speakeasy tonight for a celebration, some food and libations. Oh, so gangster! More later...

If you wanted to sample a song from the EP I mentioned a few days ago, here's one. Or just search for Angry Salad - people posted all their stuff up. Killer version of 99 Red Balloons. And my personal favorite, Saturday Girl.


Finally starting to figure out what the neighbor next door might be building. He appears to be putting all these rocks into the cages - in effect forming what appears to be a wall. However, I see no mortar being used and the rocks are not pretty at all - more like crushed refuse if you ask me. So I guess you just leave the cage to hold the rocks in? I Googled this and appears that that is what is done. Personally I find it rather unsightly. Hire a mason and get it done right IMHO. Plus the location of this wall doesn't make sense to me at this time - and it doesn't go all the way to the end so what purpose could it serve?? The mystery continues!

bosboats62718 (122k image)

So the city is supposed to do some major construction on the bike path that I use, mainly because a section of it floods so badly. The section of the path that'll be out for 3 months has been delayed for some reason (it runs just above the MBTA Red Line so that may be factor), but I've been scoping out a way around it - a way better than the city actually suggests to go. I basically get off the path just before the closure point and go along Tannery Brook Row - the street that has the multimillion dollar condos. It's perfect because it leads back out to Cameron Ave and then a short skip to Mass Ave from there and since it's mostly a private way, there's not too much to worry about. Genius!


I finally decided to use up some of that Amazon Gift Card I won at work last month. Decided to get two new books to read that sound interesting (to me anyway): Advice for Future Corpses (and Those Who Love Them): A Practical Perspective on Death and Dying and Tonight I'm Someone Else: Essays. And I see have about half left on the gift card. Score!


Last night I was going through some of my old CDs and came upon my Angry Salad EP - The Guinea Pig EP - and started playing it. Tunes I hadn't heard in years. This was basically their demo CD before they got a deal to make a real album. They were the first local rock group I started following when I was into doing that stuff, Middle East Nightclub, the old TT the Bears, etc. - hard to do it now - hard to stay up til 11 pm for them to come onstage these days. We got so old. Sadly, they aren't around anymore - too bad too, they were pretty good.

Good day to just chill out. I did manage to pull off all the seed pods from the Lupine. Maybe I can dry those out and replant the seeds and get a field of them. Ended up just using the grill tonight, some chicken, chicken dogs (figured we try them - not bad actually), and scallops. Finished up just in time too as it started to rain. Good timing. Oh, we also harvested some of our growing lettuce!

Check out the dog that rode with us!

Glad the rain held out, as I decided to go on this year's summer bike ride around Cambridge MA. I've done these a few times before, they're always pretty good and have a theme. This year's theme was architecture, so the ride goes past various buildings of significant import. I especially like having the police escort which closes off all the traffic and you ride in the street unhindered by cars. Pretty cool cruising through Central, Harvard, Memorial Drive, and various other parts of the city with folks wondering what the heck this huge convoy of bikers are all about. Some of the more interesting sights along the ride were the Spite House (a 308 sf, 8' wide home built to spite a neighbor), Ford Motor Company Building (stopped being that in 1933 though the building is still just outside Kendall), various sights on MIT's campus like the Stata Center, and Harvard's Harvard Lampoon building.

I generally go on these things because I like history and all these places have a story to tell. All told, about 200 riders this time (down from usually around 500, but probably because there was a threat of rain all day - though thankfully, the ride was dry). If I can discover any photos of me during the ride, I'll be sure to share them.

It's been a couple of hot ones! Enjoy this summer sunset from some time back. I'm still trying to get over this cold - luckily for me, LD has been taking very good care of me. Oh! Also, I did finally get a chance to steam corn in the Instant Pot and I got to say - it comes out really nice! The husks slide right off and it tastes really sweet - so two thumbs up for that! Just plop them in with the husks, but cut off the two ends. Then add two cups of water, set it to Steam mode and set for 3 minutes - and then it's done and ready to eat!

So the next door neighbors appear to be building something along their house with a long line of what appear to some kind of wire cages. Just what the hell contraption are they making? I can't figure out what the heck it is supposed to be. And now there's a pile of rocks (more like rubble if you ask me) sitting out in their driveway, which I assume is for whatever assinine project this is supposed to be. But again, I can't heads or tails of what it supposed to be. If they would ever move along and finish constructing it, then perhaps I'll know, but until then, I am perplexed.

At least, I can say, TGIF!

I spent the last hour or so feeding the various hydrangeas and cutting down the dead growth. Really want them to flower again as some of them were not. However, I can see from my last application that there are buds, even on the one that never budded since we got it 5 or so years ago, so, sweet!

This pic was actually taken a while back, finally got around to processing it now - looks really cool printed out large too - this may be one that I could consider selling around. Looking forward to the weekend, have a couple of fun things planned. One thing is in Dedham to appear to be bringing back the Bunny Art project from a few years ago (2012!) which was a huge hit. Definitely want to check that out.

Well, saw a new one today. Out for a walk at lunchtime out back on the Alewife Reservation, ended up seeing a deer in the brush! Not so unusual to see a deer in the suburbs, but in Cambridge? First time I've ever seen that here.

This evening while I was watering the plants we had some growing again from last year but I didn't remember what it is. So I took a pic of it on my phone and feed it through Google Lens (a part of Google Photos app now as well as a standalone app) and it was able to identify what it was using AI. Pretty sweet!

I rode the bike in this morning, taking a chance as it may rain later this afternoon, but it was just so nice out this morning not to. Actually I've been riding most the week. They're supposed to close part of the bike path that I use for 3 months to redo drainage and repaving and such, which will be a real pain to be sure, but that hasn't started yet. Also they've finally ripped out the sidewalk in front of the house - hopefully they can get that all done real quick. Other than that, just waiting to get to the weekend so I can possibly revisit scenes like the one above.

Last night finally got a chance to catch up on Cloak & Dagger. So far it's pretty good, but I wish the two of them would just start working together already. I also caught that Eddie Money reality show and I can tell you that it's pretty terrible. Looks like you will be able to binge watch all the episodes in order on Saturday but I can assure you I won't be doing that.

We grilled turkey burgers outside last night for dinner and it came out much better this time, along with some peppers and broccoli. I spent part of the time planting the new rose bush, Burgundy Iceberg Floribunda Rose, hoping it'll be way more flashy than the cheap roses that were growing there and were placed by the previous homeowners.

Went down to Redbones for dinner tonight at their annual bike party and get a raffle chance at a new bike while there. Didn't win any bikes but did have a nice little pulled pork sandwich and two sides. I actually do not care for their sides, I find them rather tasteless, but I ate it anyway and the sandwich was great.

Started off the day with a walk over to the town square to check out it's Art in the Park - mostly in how to get ideas as to hoe to display some of my work in the future. Some of the stuff there was pretty good, although I think my stuff looks just as good if not better. Then it was off to MArshfield for lunch. LD had heard of this place that serves Monster Lobster rolls, so we went and partook of some - Green Harbor - delicious. To wrap up our jonesin' for some sea air we hit Plymouth, where I took a bunch of shots of the various lobster artworks around town, my favorite being the Rocking Lobster with was adorned with electric guitars and other musical instruments and accompaniments (photos to come). While there we tried some Hawaiian Shaved Ice, which actually ended up being just ice with food coloring, which is what I thought it might be but decided to take a shot. Remind us never to get that again. Later in day, after I got a new rosebush with purple roses (hopefully) which I need to plant tomorrow, we ran into Ernie Boch Jr. again trolling up beside us in a vehicle I could not identify. Always see him scooting about town it seems. Ended up the day eating greek salads from this awesome place down by the airport while chillin out to some 48 Hours, sucking down some Mike's Hard Lemonade Mango (the Watermelon flavor is my new favorite however, very sweet and very smooth).
