Thirty years ago, Des Desmond’s rock band, the Bentmen, needed a rehearsal space to practice their music. In entrepreneurial fashion, Desmond took out a small business loan, leased a building in the South End and built the first Sound Museum Rehearsal Complex, which, as a company is still operational today.

Dietician

Because diabetes is a chronic disease, it makes perfect sense to discuss it with a well-informed dietician. Just to make it clear; a nutritionist; although knowing a lot does not need any credentials. However to become a dietician one needs a four year degree. They must also have completed a series of experiences. A board exam must also be passed. A residency also must be done. So you could say also that dieticians are nutritionists; but not all nutritionists are dieticians.

Buff

A Cambridge Scribe

Buff is and always will be an accomplished writer who believes that even though one could be a struggling artist, one still must embrace their passion, and Buff certainly does embrace his writing passion. So we sat together to talk about life and how his writing influences that life. Most people have a person place or thing which aspires him. Buff's life was no different. He accepted his inspiration from his third grade teacher when he was a small child.

Whoopsism

How do you spell Mrs. Roosevelt?

Thursday, April 19

It's been a long time since we saw a glaring Whoopsism. (Def: gross misspelling) So imagine our surprise when we were in a local
Harvard Square Cafe (hint, shares the same pronunciation as "flower") and saw Eleanor Roosevelt's name misspelled.

Thanks, Flour, for heeding my tweet.
