Not a day goes by that I don’t see an Emerson or Thoreau quote on Instagram. “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”; “Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.”; and one of my favourites: Concord, Massachusetts is home […]

Arriving in Boston after a red-eye flight and a train from New York we were so hungry and tired by the time we checked-in at the Nine Zero Hotel that I gobbled up a Boston Bruins cupcake that was laid out as a part of our welcome amenity. Luckily, the hockey-themed pastry didn’t spoil my […]

John got home and while I was going into doting-wife-getting-ready-to-prepare-dinner-for-her-man mode he placed two items on the coffee table, which just so happened to be tickets for tonight’s game.

It’s a shame I can’t remember the sound of the electric trolley transit buses that rolled up and down either side of Aberdeen Ave. They were yellow and white with black trim, and had rear doors that opened on the driver’s side to accommodate loading on one-way streets and off the boulevard under the maple […]
