Posted 08/16/2014 12:17:02 EDT

Bring back Ekersley! Let's have fun listening to the game, not think about Jared Remy, which is impossible not to do when I hear Jerry Remy. I've pretty much stopped watching or listening. more »

Hey ESPN, I'm not watching the Red Sox these days - it's not possible to watch or listen to Jerry Remy without thinking of his dreadful son's actions and the Remy family's part in it. The fun in watch more »
Comment on: Our food truck obsession may be all in our heads - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/10/2014 09:03:27 EDT
I always wonder, do people that buy at food trucks like to eat standing up? The ones I've seen have no place to sit - are we a nation of walking while eating, or eating while walking? more »

Posted 04/17/2014 06:45:20 EDT
My husband has been - or was at one time - often interviewed. Before the interview I'd always say, "Remember the reporter is not your friend." Good to keep in mind. He or she may act like we're just more »

Posted 03/13/2014 03:49:08 EDT
We have had many very positive experiences traveling via Amtrak, with only a rare glitch. As catfeld points out, the equipment is old, the tracks are often old and in bad shape requiring the train to more »

Good grief, there are no perfect answers. I grew up in a town where we walked or rode bikes to elementary school and then with bus passes took the bus to the high school. Obviously, it wasn't a big ci more »

The side of the building that houses the Amherst Cinema still has the painted message, "Save the Drake for Willie and Humanity". The paint gets renewed very few years. Nice.

A single payer, universal health care, as all other civilized countries have, in various forms, they are not all the same - is the answer. But, here - the insurance companies are powerful and they are more »
Comment on: Freight train strikes car in Webster; no injuries reported - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/21/2014 05:12:10 EST
This is the funniest story I've read all week! Honestly, enough to make me laugh. Didn't notice it was a railroad track, not a parking lot entrance. (Well, that GPS voice can be very insistent.) And more »

OK, how do I know where the tip that we added to the credit card (usually 20% of the total, which included the tax) goes? As far as I can figure out, there's no way to tell. If we leave cash, does t more »

Most of the rest of the country doesn't have both a February vacation week and an April vacation week. There's just one spring vacation week. So, that helps with getting in the 180 days. ''

Comment on: Romney may make a good president, but heâs a lousy candidate - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/11/2014 09:40:58 EST
The movie may make him seem like a nice affable guy, but remember he lost his home town, Belmont, 65% for Obama, 34% for Romney. He's lived in Belmont for ages, but those folks in Belmont surely know more »

How does one give a gratuity to the desk clerk when checking in, as advised in the article? Giving a ten dollar bill to the desk clerk just doesn't sound possible to me. How does the author do this?
