Two llamas (a mother and her daughter) went on the lam yesterday in Arizona. They were chased relentlessly until they were finally caught. Their escape failed.
Better luck next time, Ladies!
So far, I heard that the weather is going to go down into the negative numbers tonight in Boston. February has been a lousy month so far in Boston. The only good thing that happened this month was that the Patriots won the Super Bowl earlier this month (and I’m not even a football fan. I just like that status quo).
At least the MBTA is working again, although it was slow this morning. Snail’s pace in fact. What do I expect from a very old transit system? The whole world now knows that the MBTA is not as good as it should be when heavy snow hits Boston. The shuttle buses kept getting stuck in traffic because there were tons of cars out there. Nobody wants to stay indoors.
Thursday night I ended up getting home late after 9 pm. I missed the first few minutes of Scandal. At least, Olivia was freed and got to go home.
Stay warm tonight if you’re in the Boston Area!
Well, those last 40 minutes of the Superbowl will most likely make the history books, and it finally got exciting. My co-workers will be extremely happy tomorrow. I’m happy for them too, even though I am a non-football person.
Kudos to Malcolm Butler for that interception in less than two minutes before the clock ran out. I didn’t like that senseless brawl in the last minute. Shame on you guys!
Brady and Belichick look very pleased! Congrats!
That was one long and very cold blizzard that started last Monday and ended early Wednesday morning last week. It was bitterly cold that whole time.
I had a tough time on the T’s Red line getting home on Monday night. There was signal problems at Harvard T Station, but the driver of the train I was on kept on saying that the signal problem was at Charles Street T Station. Love that T’s communication system!
At least, I got to stay home on Tuesday from work and kept myself warm. I had to because I didn’t want to get sick before Billy Idol came into town last night to do a concert at the Orpheum. He was great!!!!
More snow coming late tonight and ending early on Tuesday morning. More than 12 inches is expected for the Boston area. The weather people are still making predictions about how this storm will pan out.
Rumor has it that more snow later in the week.
Looks like winter is here.
Yesterday, many people (at least, 4 million) came out and marched in Paris after being attacked by terrorists at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical newspaper, and a koser grocery store last week. Islamic terrorists killed 12 people at the Charlie Hebdo headquarters in Paris. Then, another terrorist took hostages in a kosher store and killed a few people there before police seized the store and killed the terrorist.
Meanwhile, the two brothers who were on the lam for the Charlie Hebdo shooting were also killed at the same time as the police moved in on the kosher store. A third suspect in the Charlie Hebdo shooting surrendered while the girlfriend (or wife) of the terrorist who assaulted the kosher store has escaped and is probably in Syria by now.
Very sad week for France. It seems there are terrorist cells in that country. They might attack again.
I am amazed that there are others that are willing to kill innocent people without any provocation.
This is the Annual Report I get from WordPress. See how this blog did in 2014. Enjoy!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here's an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,800 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 30 trips to carry that many people.
I know we’re almost five days into 2015, but I wanted to briefly reflect on the past year. It wasn’t very pleasant for me with the deaths of my mother and two cousins. The sad fact that unarmed black men and boys being killed by policemen who are able to be not punished for it because they said that they were in danger. Seeing that people are very upset about the grand juries decisions in these cases makes me side with the protesters. Change must happen.
Of course, it saddens me that two policemen were executed by a mad soul out for his own personal revenge.
Will the changes in society happen this year? Will there be less tragic killings? I hope so.
One last thing: I will deeply miss the later former Mayor Thomas Menino very much. Really loved that guy!
I’ve been watching the news closely and seeing the outrage and protests over the grand juries’ decisions about not indicting the police officers who killed two unarmed black men who committed crimes. It seems the law protects the police when they use excessive force against a criminal just by saying that their lives were in danger.
The protests are huge in a lot of cities across the country. It does signal that the police use too much firepower against mere criminals while very dangerous men with an arsenal of weapons simply walk over to groups of people either in a movie theatre or a parking lot of a Safeway grocery store without the policy noticing them and killing innocent people. The police only captured them. In some case, the gunmen took their own lives before the policy could confront them.
Hopefully, things will get better for everyone in 2015.
Former Boston Channel 38 Movie Loft host Dana Hersey is working at a radio station in Beverly, MA, called North Shore WBOQ/104.9 FM doing the morning drive. He started late summer after the previous morning disc jockey, Charlie Curtis, retired. Dana hosted the Movie Loft on Channel 38 in Boston during the 1980s. It was a great show that Dana would introduce movies and tell stories about the movies and the actors/actresses who appeared in those movies. It is a greatly missed show.
According to Boston Radio Watch, it’s the second time that Dana has worked for the morning show at WBOQ when it did Broadway and show tunes. It’s music format is now 60s, 70s, and 80s music.
Check out the picture of Dana on WBOQ’s website.
