I had a my Harvard project team meeting in Cambridge. I love these days! I take the commuter train into Boston and then I walk to Harvard Square. I always say I get my city fix this way. I walk through Beacon Hill, Kendall Square, Central Square and Harvard Square. We had a lot to […]

There isn’t much for me to say this week, after all the terrible news about Hurricane Irma.  All I want to ask is that you keep the hurricane victims in your thoughts and prayers. There are many ways to help.  Unfortunately, times like this also bring out the scammers. Here’s some information on where you […]
