Comment on: 'Tablet computer for toddlers has promise, flaws'
Posted 09/08/2011 07:24:33 EDT

Comment on: 2011 BMW 335is: M3 fun for less - Boston Overdrive - Boston.com
Posted 09/03/2011 05:40:24 EDT

Posted 08/28/2011 09:10:28 EDT
My wife has her friends. They go out and talk about whatever women talk about when they are out. Sometimes they shop, see a movie (usually a "chick flick") or go to some artsy thing like a play or art more »

Like it or not, religion plays an enormous part in world history, understanding of literature and understanding other people's backgrounds. This class sounds like education actually exposing kids to T more »

Don't be afraid to use the words "I don't know", either. It's even better if you follow it up with "However, this is how I'd go about finding out the answer ...." more »

Posted 07/30/2011 07:02:13 EDT
I found it, too. The English language is under assault from all over -- the txtspk crowd, startup companies that have given up vowels and now the Globe can't be bothered to proof anything anymore. more »

Posted 07/29/2011 08:07:59 EDT
If you don't like it, don't shop there. But plenty of people like to shop there. They didn't get to be the world's largest retailer by being idiots at business. more »

Posted 07/29/2011 07:58:24 EDT
You'd think the economy was humming along and unemployment was at 0%. What arrogance from the mayor ... "I expect them to apply for a permit ... we'll have a detailed discussion". more »

Posted 07/25/2011 10:20:49 EDT
My three year old started breastfeeding her dolls when she saw her mother breastfeeding her infant sister. Nobody things twice about a kid feeding a doll with a fake bottle. Grow up, people. My only o more »

Comment on: 'Northborough, Mass.: Where streets have no name'
Posted 07/20/2011 07:22:40 EDT
I'm surprised anyone noticed. Massachusetts has the worst street signs of anywhere I've ever been in this country or the world. Why don't they mark the street you are on, like they do everywhere else? more »
Comment on: Soccer grumps - The Boston Globe
Posted 07/17/2011 07:46:18 EDT
It's not the game of soccer that annoys me, it's the soccer fans who lecture me why I should watch soccer who really annoy me. I'm not a hater ... I just don't watch sports all that much. more »

Nothing like spending $$$$ on something that's destined to be covered in some odd collection of bodily fluids, dirt and food that didn't quite make it in the kid's mouth. I wonder if they they have "d more »

I bought a used iPhone 3GS and put in the SIM card from a GoPhone. It works great for me, as I don't talk a lot, am not a heavy texter and not a heavy data user. No contract, and I only pay for what I more »
