#oneboston Boston Marathon Patriot's Day Pray for Boston

Being a local, native of Massachusetts, I've seen many a marathon race.  Back in the old days, itwas not run for money, nor did the runners have sponsors.  I even saw the legendaryJohnny Kelly run back in the day.

Just seconds after the first explosion rocked the area near the finish line, there was a
second blast a few blocks away on Boylston Street.
For those fortunate to be on the route, it was familytradition to watch together, hand out oranges and perhaps water, and then havea family cookout together after race.  Many years of happy family celebrations and good times surrounding this day.  Now, I work on Patriot's Day, but the place of employmentis also on the route.  This year, we watched from the third floor of an historic buildingas the thousands of athletes came came down...  Read More

Pope Francis, the New Pope Habemus Papam

March 13, 2013


Today, we have a new Pope.  Vaya con Dios (means Go with God or Godspeed)
Pope Francis, not Pope Francis I as many thought.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio chose the name of Francis, one of the patron saints of Italy.
(St. Francis of Assisi)

May we bless the workings of the Holy Spirit to help guide us and direct us and Pope Francis.


I didn't know anything about this man until today.  It will be inspiring to learn from him for the Easter season and the course of his papacy. 

What impresses me at first glance is that he was still using public transporation.  Wow!  A very humble man, it seems he paid his hotel bill himself this morning as he ventured out and then visited
the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore.

According to Reuters  (By Crispian Balmer and Philip Pullella VATICAN CITY | ...  Read More

The Adventures of Millie Episode Two

Well, it is almost a year since
The Adventures of Millie the Super Mom aired. 

It was meant to be a monthly series, if not weekly, but it did not happen because of
other pursuits, life and priorities. 

Here is Episode 2 which encapsulates a year of events.  In Episode One, we thought
Millie would find a new job which was to occur in Episode 3.  In the meantime, we need to see Part Two before we find that out.

Keep Calm and Be Quiet

Keep Calm.  The Quiet Car is quite nice. 
 
Not being a traveler, I was a bit confused when entering a ‘quiet car’ on Amtrak
for a trip from Boston to New York for the Christmas holiday.

From addoway


Since this was going to be a four-hour trip, there was a host of snacks carefully packed.  Never one to be unprepared,  I had an assortment of melon, prosciutto, rolled up polish ham, roast beef, crackers, cheddar cheese, goat cheese, crusty bread and blue cheese.  I forgot the blueberries and apple slices at home.  I envisioned setting the snacks on the table.  Oops, there was no table.  Hmm… 

As I prepared to sit down across the aisle from my family, the woman who would be next to me started telling a family with kids that this was in no uncertain terms, a QUIET CAR.  Yikes.  From that point on, I was a...  Read More

Giving 101 Kahlil Gibran knows the Holiday Spirit

One of my favorites is "You give but little when you give of your possessions.

It is when you give of yourself that you truly give." from Kahlil Gibran

The Prophet.

In fact, that quote is what I used for my high school yearbook, many years ago. 
I still love the sentiment. 

I put together a little video with the whole excerpt on giving. 
Not finding an appropriate Christmas song, I used a version like James Taylor of "You've got a friend".

What do people pin on pinterest?

An FYI for pinterest pinners. 

What I learned about pinterest is that people like wine. 
I belong to a few boards and created a few boards on pinterest, but one in particular is this
pin about Wine Ice Cream! 

Apparently wine and ice cream are a great combination. It is up to about 450 pins at the moment.

Mallomars the cookies you remember during the holidays

Mallomars, the traditional northeast cookie that is manufactured for late fall and winter. 
It's really the start of the Christmas season when the Mallomars start hitting the grocery store shelves. 
(now SOLD OUT)
RoyalPresence_1_484f07.png

  • Introduced in 1913, is a northeast favorite amongst generations.
  • Only regionally and seasonally available
  • Marshmallow center and graham cracker crust
  • Pure chocolate coating
There's an old New York Times (NYT) article entitled "The Cookie that Comes out in the Cold" that refers to the beloved cookies as "old as the Federal Reserve System and Camel cigarettes."

Their debut was 1913 and originated in New Jersey.  Some like the Whippets, a Canadian version similar to Mallomars better.  Here's one person's review.   The Whippets are much less expensive and are readily...  Read More
