I attended a Cisco Systems Inc. event at Gillette Stadium this past Thursday. We were inside and had a terrific view looking down on the field. The event was a busy one, but the ground crew looked equally as busy outside.
The Sparrows were already on their seats waiting for the game to begin -
A young college dweeb sat next to me on the MBTA Commuter rail the other morning. Fortunately, it was a three person seat, so he was on one end and I the other.
It wasn't long after he got situated did I notice him digging in his nose, UGH DISGUSTING! He then proceeded to lower his hand and flick his findings off. Now at this point I'm beyond disgusted but said nothing. However, when he went in for a second drilling but this time choosing to smear his findings off on the seat I let him have it! I lit him up on a very quiet train. Thankfully, he got up and left. Chances were VERY high that had he stayed and had he said a word back in any form of justification he was going to have more issues with his nose...
People are so selfish and inconsiderate and think only of themselves, it's sad.
As expected the shorter days and cold weather has triggered a shutdown for the ladies of the coop.
This time of year they usually go through a molt. As a part of that process they also stop laying eggs. Out of 8 chickens one is still laying, so we're getting an egg each day.
The eggs are coming out with a fancy end or tail, see pics below. These are calcium deposits. There are many reasons this can occur, from the chickens age, lack of day light (shorter days), temperature, etc.
No cause for alarm. The eggs are still good and edible, in fact they're delicious! We'll keep an eye an watch this but suspect it'll correct itself over time. Certainly makes for interesting egg shells.
As I mentioned in a previous post, my company is moving into a new building in 2018. The new location 100 Federal Street, pictured above, is kitty corner from our current location. I took this picture looking out the window from the 14th floor of our current building.
This pic shows why this building is known to by local Bostonian's as the pregnant building.
The blue window posters at street level, newly hung, are to let passerby's know about the construction and that we're coming.
Exciting. Looking forward to getting involved with the move and seeing what our new space will look like.
Pulled into the MBTA Commuter Rail parking lot in Norfolk yesterday morning and saw this. What an arrogant dipstick, REALLY?!
I can understand wanting to protect your vehicle from the other aholes who will inevitably open their door into the side of your car, However, parking like this in the busiest section of the lot AND on a corner spot to boot, not to mention that the front of the vehicle sticking into the travel lane is douchbagish!
If you need to park like this have some common courtesy and respect for others and do so in a section of the parking lot that has minimal traffic and plenty of open spaces, NOT in the front row.
