Can't Park There Now

It's amazing to see what is going on in Boston with so many real estate developments. The Seaport District is very exciting and being built before us.
 
They will never complete it all. So many projects trying to build in the hottest part of town.
 
That area was once the biggest parking lot of Boston. Great deals back then.

Lot of Honey

 
The news had a story of a house on Long Island that had a hive of 120,000 bees inside a wall. The owners were alerted to it by a constant buzzing sound.
 
A beekeeper was called in and was able to determine the hive was seven feet tall and contained 70 gallons of honey.
 
It will be removed in the spring to make it less traumatic for the bees.

Not Long For Styrofoam

Styrofoam coffee cups are not cool these days. Major chains are trying to move to paper cups.
 
I hope it works for all their customers.

Closing The Magazine

Weekly and monthly magazines are disappearing at a fast rate. Some have reduced their issues while others have migrated to the on-line format.
 
I subscribe to National Geographic Traveler, but they will cease after two more issues. They will remain on-line, but for how long?
 
Sports Illustrated will only publish monthly starting in January, but will also give readers five special issues throughout the year.
 
Magazines are cutting staffing and costs, but it might not be enough to survive.

Final Seven Weeks of 2019

It's hard to believe the year is over in seven weeks. Two weeks from tonight is Thanksgiving Eve with Christmas six weeks from today.
 
It's so crazy that time is flying by. We can only sit back and enjoy it because nothing is ever guaranteed.

Feels Like January

Large potions of the country are being hit with record low temperatures. They will be in the single digits tomorrow with the wind chill factor.
 
It is much too cold for this time of year. It might get up to 50 degrees on Friday, but I'll believe it when I see it.

Amtrak Losing Less

It's great to hear that Amtrak will only lose $30 million this year.

Ridership is the highest ever with 32.5 million passenger trips over the last fiscal year.
 
We always hear of the threat to cut funding in the federal budget.

Maybe Snow

We might get snow by Wednesday. Nobody really knows. The weather people are all over the place.
 
It doesn't sound like the weather will be great over the next few days.
 
We could also get a 70 degree day at the end of November.
 
You never know.
 
Weather is crazy.

Say No To Paint

I wonder who had the idea to paint the guardrails along parts of Storrow Drive in Boston.
 
Painting them green was done with good intentions, but the coat is peeling and it looks awful now.
 
I have never see them painted before. They wouldn't look bad if the paint didn't chip.

Hands Are Ready For It

It's only November 8th, but it was so cold today with the wind. I find it difficult to adjust to the temperature.
 
We are still six weeks away from the start of winter, but I already feel it in my hands. My skin is and cracked.
 
From this point forward, it's all about using cream on them.

Having A Shot

I had a flu shot today like I did last year. Prior to that, I had gone 37 years without one.
 
In 1981, I got very sick after it.That lead to my decision not to have one in the future.
 
After being sick for about six weeks in 2018, I decided that I would get one last year and going forward.
 
I don't want to go through that again. Hopefully, it works.

Train Time

I always wanted to take the Amtrak Downeaster to Portland Maine and back for a day trip to do lunch.
 
It finally happened today. I love riding trains and staring out the window looking at everything.
 
Amtrak is so awesome, but it cost me $52 with a senior discount. I thought it would be cheaper.
 
Public transportation is not always the best  way. Some people have no options and must deal with all the hassles.

Didn't Go Early

A number of states allow early voting. In New York, the turnout was dismal with only 2% of the voters casting a ballot before election day.
 
New York City announced it with great fanfare, but only had a 1.3% turnout. Only 60,110 of a possible 4.8 million voters took this option.

Golf Season Ending

Two weeks ago, I set up a golf time with some friends for this Friday. You never know with the weather.
 
The weather people are predicting a dire situation with a dusting of snow.
 
They get top billing on all the news shows as a result. 
 
Rain happens. It could be very cold. Who knows?
 
I sounds like the weather will keep us from playing golf.

Change That Password

I was trying to post to my website on Tuesday evening, but I had problems with my login.
 
After all these years, I needed to change my password.
 
I wonder what prompted that. What it really random?
