So Boston used to have a Domino Sugars plant. Anybody know where (and whether they finally dropped the last S for savings)?
Bostonia Rantida never tires of getting off a plane at Logan or seeing the Boston skyline appear on the 'Pike on the Fung Wah:
... It amazes me sometimes just how much I love this city; how I physically miss it when I am gone. ... It seems that my soul lets out a sigh of relief when I step back into city limits ...
Yup, meanwhile, is loving her new office view, which looks out over Boston Harbor:
... This view reminds me that I love this city, its history and the water. I don't know what I would do with out the ocean so nearby. ...
Neither seems likely to sway Single Girl in the City, who reads about that $250,000 parking space in the Back Bay and concludes:
... And the state wonders why the 18-34 demographic is fleeing this state for elsewhere...
BECAUSE WE CAN'T EVEN AFFORD TO BUY A PARKING SPACE TO PUT A TENT UP TO SLEEP IN, LET ALONE BUY SUITABLE LIVING QUARTERS...
I am SO over Boston. ...
Borderline takes you on a virtual kidscursion of the Harbor Islands.
Being the tough kid that Jake is he wanted to reel in a fish he had snagged on his kids fishing rod.
When it got close to the boat Grandpa got the gaff out and pulled a shark into the boat. Itâ€™s only a small sand shark but still great for a 3 year old kid to catch on his own.
After I took care of the administration of justice in Suffolk County, I went for a walk along the harbor. Near Columbus Park, I saw a lot of trash in the water. But that "bag" on the left is actually a jellyfish.
Kat takes a panoramic shot from above Rowes Wharf out across the harbor and into the ocean, and explains how she loves wide-open vistas (click on the photo for the giant-sized version).
LNG Solutions is a new blog aimed at fighting the continuing transit of LNG tankers through Boston Harbor:
Liquefied natural gas tankers traveling through Boston Harbor carry volatile cargo and are terrorists targets. Sixty times a year, these floating bombs steam past thousands of homes and 500,000 residents who are in constant danger. We want these dangerous ships out of Boston Harbor.
Update: This blog is part of a PR effort by the company that wants to build an LNG terminal on Outer Brewster Island, in other words, not some concerned residents.
Sisu starts out photographing her cat going into the washer, but ends up photographing one of those ginormous, helicopter-guarded LNG tankers coming into the Inner Harbor.
Sco makes the case for putting an LNG facility there: Basically, better there than in the middle of a densely populated area such as Fall River - or around the Inner Harbor.
