There are many old mill building complexes all around
New England. We have a huge one locally that is involved in a real estate sale. It will be a long process because of the list
A developer wants to transform the place, but there is a waterfall from the 1800's next to the property.
Homeless people have entered. Virtually every window
pane is broken. There is the constant threat of arson.
Who should secure the building? The city finally stepped in and is
using federal grant money of $100,000 to
cover windows with red boards. Hopefully, nobody destroys this place before it has a chance to be developed.
It was quite a complex in it's time.

It's amazing to see the amount of juice and water that
come from frozen berries. The bowl I prepared earlier today is ready to eat, but looks a lot different. It shrank a lot.
I always drink the juice that has been sitting with the berries.

They Want The Book
7:56 pm edt
My local library has done curbside orders during the
pandemic. Now that things are getting back to normal, I wonder how much longer this will last.
I used it when it was the only option. Thinking of it made me check
my account, only to discover that one book was due today and can't be renewed because someone else is waiting for it.

I don't get to the beach very often, even in the summer.
On hot days, it's just too crowded.
would never go into the water as I don't trust the undertow and potential rip current.
The news had a story tonight of a rescue of two people at Salisbury
Beach because of a rip current. It can overwhelm people very fast.

Finishing The Book
10:59 pm edt
I'm a slow reader who tries to read too much at times.
I got a book on reserve from the library, but ran out of the three
week time limit to finish it.
was surprised to see that it could be renewed. Apparently, nobody was waiting for one of the copies in circulation.
They gave me another three weeks, but I'm almost done.

Update To Stop Working
11:35 pm edt
My printer stopped
working again. It lasted over a day as nothing seem to stop the blank pages.
Apparently, there is some type of issue with my
printer model and getting impacted by Windows 10 updates.
I need to resolve this.

Last Week of Spring 2021
11:49 pm edt
This is really the last week of spring. It went by rather
fast. Although, summer starts next week, the length of daily sunlight will start to decrease.
We are approaching the midpoint of the year.

That was quite a story about the 56 year old lobster
diver who was swallowed by a humpback whale off Cape Cod.
He lived to tell about it as the whale expelled him from their body.
This guy was so lucky not to be taken to a deep ocean dive.

Their First Commercial
10:46 pm edt
You don't usually see television commercials for pistachio
nuts, but I saw one tonight.
called themselves "the original plant-based protein. They are 100% right on that.
Pistachio nuts are high in protein as well as healthy fats. Everything
they said was true. It's a very healthy food.

The New Hole
11:52 pm edt
The golf course I played at today has homes being built
along two holes. One of them has been shortened to a Par 3 in order to prevent golfers striking balls that could hit workers
at construction sites.
The hole needed the teeing area moved because a few homes
were too close to the course.

Along The NYC Rivers
11:29 pm edt
I enjoy following New York City commercial real
estate. There is always so much going on with new proposals and places being built.
The Post had a story about developments on land along the East and
Harlem Rivers. They will be creating new neighborhoods and opportunity.

More Junk Today
11:50 pm edt
I will never be able to stop some of
the junk mail I get through the Post Office. It's not their fault. They just deliver it.
Today, I got one of the never ending solicitations for
supplemental health insurance.
I have a very good situation with my health insurance, but that won't stop junk mail.

I had a problem editing this website a short time
ago after I accessed it. We had some severe thunderstorms earlier. Maybe they had an impact.
Once I rebooted my computer, everything was fine.
You never know with them .

The Electric 30's
11:53 pm edt
Nobody can predict
what the world will be like in 2030. So many things will change.
California set a goal of having 90% of ride-sharing vehicles be electric by the start
of 2030 and no CO2 emissions.
that happen? Time will tell.

Every city at some
point will change the direction of a street. It can happen after decades of the current status.
Change happens for whatever reason and the city moves on.
That is so evident in Boston and New York City.
