New Mural at Corner Grille

It was half-done when I snapped this photo. This replaces the old mural which featured a white-haired man eating pizza and lyrics for "That's Amore".

Piedmont Street

A suitcase full of clothes, on the sidewalk, in the rain. Was this a child's dramatic runaway attempt called off at the last moment when the thought of the big world out there became too scary? Or is it a bag ripped off from the back seat of a parked car and rifled through? Or the whole of a homeless person's possessions, somehow lost or maybe abandoned?

Strange-looking Sky

I shot these pictures on Route 101 in Rhode Island. The sun was actually reflecting off some clouds overhead and creating a really strange effect.

Disc Golf is Awesome!

Played 18 Holes at Pyramids Disc Golf in Leicester. $5 bucks! Really cool course, plus a great Pro Shop. All about 2 miles past Tatnuck Square. You'd never even suspect it was there. And there's another, different world-class course just a mile down the road.


Goodbye WBCN

I was shocked to hear this morning that WBCN is shutting down. Mix98.5 will take over that spot on the dial, and an All-Sports station will start up at the 98.5 frequency. 'BCN was supposedly the inspiration for the movie FM, which was the
inspiration for WKRP, so it's the station that more or less set the

Has the Getty Station at Tatnuck Square shut down?

It looks like it, but it's hard to tell. the prices at the pump seem current, but the office is bare and the place was closed all day Saturday. I know Getty was getting out of the retail business and with the *other*Tatnuck Getty converting to Lukoil, maybe there wasn't another franchise available in that neighborhood. Or maybe it's still open. Can't tell.

Holy Name Wind Turbine

The turbine has been locked down for the past week. No idea why. Mechanical problems?


Fourth of July Complaint

Talk about a bonehead public relations move. Every year the public has been allowed to view Worcerster's 4th of July fireworks from the Unum parking lot off Lancaster Street. What I'd always attributed to corporate goodwill was apparently just an oversight on their part, because this year hundreds turned up to watch the show, only to see the lot chained off. It wasn't even a weeknight. I mean, come on. In the words of Maggie O'Hooligan: T'ANKS FER NUTTIN!

Lunch at Deary Brothers Mike's Stand

A grilled hot dog in a toasted bun with mustard and onions, hot fries straight out of the fryer and a cold coke for six bucks. Can't beat it.
