Back to the Farm/Forest School

The impetus for this story began when my neighbor told me she was moving to Millis, MA, so her toddler could attend the Sprouts Farm/Forest Preschool. In projecting, what I heard was: there is a media and technology backlash brewing among young parents!

I was thrilled. I have been waiting for the backlash only because I feel I have been witnessing the need for a step-back.

AMAZON VS. SMALL LOCAL BUSINESSES

The idea for this project came after Stellabella Toys in Inman Square closed this summer. I couldn’t reconcile the “store closing” sign with what my eyes were seeing in the neighborhood.

Lily Pad Concert

Tunefoolery

To cap off what has been a beautiful fall October day, I strolled happily to the Lily Pad in Inman Square Cambridge to take in a tunefoolery concert. Tunefoolery, of you are not aware is a group of musicians who have had mental health issues. These talented players play instruments, including guitars, accordians, flutes, clarinets, pianos etc. Some play acapella. Some play instruments and sing.

ANSWERS ALL MY SILLY QUESTIONS ABOUT "SURVIVOR"

I have watched, religiously, the CBS reality television show SURVIVOR, since it began in 2000. While watching 30-plus seasons, I acquired a long list of behind-the-scenes questions that could probably be answered via the Internet. But perusing the web is not my style. If possible, I like to go to a real live source.
