project 365


One photo every day for a year. And with any luck, quality will improve as the year goes by. I’ll try not to take the easy way out (I’ll post cat pictures only when they’re really adorable.)
The inspiration is from

In Dorchester

Sheesh, that’s the lamest attempt at a pun that I’ve ever seen. If it’s even a pun. I blame it on too many leftover fun-size candy bars.
Moving along… my sister entered “Leo Leaves”, the quilt we saw a few posts ago (detail at left), in another show. It was on exhibition only, not judged, but […]



This past weekend John and I went to Rhinebeck. I know you’re thinking “Oh, what a quaint olde New England village”. And it is that. For all I know, it may also be a floor wax and a dessert topping, but at this time of year Rhinebeck is a code word for the New York […]

I’ve been rather busy lately, so there’s a lot to catch up on. Let’s start with the geeky stuff.
Last month I went to an EclipseWorld conference. Eclipse is an open source framework or platform for developing software applications and, because the conference was here in Cambridge, the company I work for agreed to foot the […]



A couple of months ago I received some mail addressed to someone who used to live here. I usually open anything that isn’t obviously junk mail just in case it’s a property tax notification or some other bit of flotsam that needs attention.

He’s on the roof of a building near my office. If he’s looking for a job, we have openings for anyone with knowledge of IBM mainframe OS internals, which is in fact a skill set from another century.

John and Potter practising […]

This was inevitable. No Boston-based blogger can resist a chance to rag on local drivers, pedestrians and/or cyclists. So here is my near-death experience of the week.
I was walking down Charles Street last Friday when the lights at the corner turned red and yellow. So I started to cross the street. A red VW speeding […]

I returned from my lunch time walk today with grass stains on the knees of my pants. I’m posting these pictures by way of explanation. Ahem. These headstones are in a cemetery in North Cambridge.

Many of the headstones are marble, which doesn’t hold up well in this climate.
This is my favorite. Gravestones often exaggerate the […]

The Harvard Film Archive has wonderfully inventive programming. We used to go more often, before inertia took hold and we couldn’t resist the lure of the Comfy Chair. But Monday night’s program sounded intriguing so John and I went to the cinema. Culture! On a school night!
The program, part of a summer-long series Eight Weeks […]
