  • Forum Post: Favorite place for ice cream?

    Posted 08/19/2008 11:51:00 EDT

    I'm with medwayfan - Blask Cow in Millis. They try different flavors all the time and come up with some good stuff. I had pumpkin ice cream once and loved it.

    Posted 08/18/2008 10:08:48 EDT

    Locally, one of the best athletes around is our own Danny Ainge. While he was a student at BYU, his summer job was playing ball for the Toroto Blue Jays. No Cape league for him. ;-) He graduated, deci more »

    I'm with you, brydog. When the Sox won in 2004, all the TV reporters were out on the field trying to come up with something creative to say and getting people to the camera. Mike Lynch was like a lost more »

    I can't believe Joyce was still around. Years ago, she gave me the impression of someone that was´┐Żalways trying to justify her existence, and not doing a very good job of it. I found her airtime total more »

    I just don't see much of a story regarding the book. He is in his first year of his first position in public office,´┐Żand his performance has been rather inept. I think the only people who know him are more »

    I know kids, through coaching, that lived in Mattapan, Roxbury, and Dorchester who just decided they didn't want to continue on with the way of life that they knew growing up. They DECIDED to make a d more »

    but still think you have some kind of a scam going because you get summers off.Aw c'mon, it's not a scam, it's part of the deal. Everybody knows from day 1 that teachers get the vacations they do - it more »

    Oh I see. So it's ok to get the time you didn't take that you EARNED ifit's called "vacation" days. When it's called "sick" days THAT's whereyou have the problem understanding it. Ok, thanks for thecl more »

    Why do you think they call them SICK days? Because you take them when you're sick. They are not intended to be vacation days. Yes, you had an employer where they were all lumped into one pool, but thi more »

    I didn't say that. Nobody I know in the private sector gets paid for unused sick days, nor should they. The example one poster gave was because their sick time and vacation time come from the same poo more »

    I'm sorry, but getting paid for leftover sick days is just pure wrong. The only place you see this is in the public sector. The BFD has separate vacation days and sick days and the abuse of sick days more »

    Posted 01/18/2008 05:19:43 EST

    I agree with you. I have never understood the rationale of tearing down buildings that aren't even that old. 35 years is nothing, I'm sure most of us live in homes older that that. Oh BTW, these are a more »

    ppag, you're bringing up something that is totally irrelevant to the conversation - it's apples and oranges. The people of Newton have no control over Iraq, but they do have direct control over their more »

    It truly amazes me how much emphasis parents place on building shrines for their kid's education. Nothing but the best, no expense spared. The design and architectural fees are exorbitant enough - the more »
