Defending turf – The Boston Globe

Nice to see the Pats win! How long have we been undefeated at home? Too late to stay up on a school night, though, man am I ever tired!


We’re Number One!

Report rates Boston most expensive city – The Boston Globe

Can this possibly be true? Has Boston surpassed NYC in expensiveness (sic)?

Before we get all excited, here’s a quote:

The report found that last year, a family of four living in the Boston area needed $64,656 to cover its basic needs. This was $6,000 more than in New York City, and about $7,000 more than in San Francisco. Living expenses, which include healthcare, child care, and other basic needs, were $44,000 or less in Austin, Texas; Chicago; Miami; and Raleigh, N.C.

Is that the only metric used? My brother lives in NYC, and his rent rates are insane – much worse than here. How can there ever be a fair descriptor to rate how expensive it is to live somewhere?

Big Papi is the man

Lots of tough games ahead, and the dreaded Yankees are always right behind, but we have to keep hope alive!


Goodbye Little Buddy

Bob Denver, 70; beloved by many as bumbling ”Gilligan” – The Boston Globe – oh its so sad to see Gilligan go. I had a beer in your honor last night little buddy!

Todd English update

Remember that scathing review of chef Todd English I wrote about a few days ago? Of course you do. But did anyone else see him compete on Iron Chef America? Some people don’t particularly care for the American version of the show (myself included,) and how it has been dumbed down to an hour of vapid commentary by Alton Brown. However, it was interesting to watch English get smoked by chef Mario Batali in the embarassingly titled, “Battle of Pizza Dough.”
