My Sunday Providence Journal did not include the weekly television guide yesterday, and yet I seem to have received all the sections. Oh well… as long as they don’t touch ‘Gracious Living with Mark Patinkin’.
Camp Grosvenor Beach in North Kingstown Gorton Beach Pond in Warwick Oakland Beach in Warwick The Dept of Health closed these two beaches today because of high bacteria count. What they don’t tell you in the news is that it’s fecal coliform. You know, POOP! You wanna know how it gets to the pristine bay?
All parent know that when you’re out and about, it’s not easy to find a clean, private place to stop and change your baby’s diaper. For example, My husband and I were in the elevator at providence place mall en route to the bus stop with precious little time to spare, and I’m standing there
Over there on the right — that’s what a douchebag looks like: Travis Rowley ’02, vice-chairman of the Rhode Island Young Republicans, responded to the bill on behalf of the organization in an e-mail to The Herald. “Almeida is a small-minded champion of political correctness,” Rowley wrote. “If he wishes to continue his obsession with
If you’re a marketing or PR firm you can send us all the press releases you want but we get to make fun of you if it’s stupid. Like this gem we got yesterday: “Calling all administrative assistants…are you a “ROCK STAR” assistant?” It doesn’t get any better after that: “In honor of Administrative Professionals’
I am alternately horrified and enthralled by the impending downfall of Western Civilization, a process I occasionally like to prod along in some small, but I hope, ultimately meaningful, way. In various print columns I have both decried the commercialization of Christmas, and urged the indiscriminate bombing of one or more Balkan nations by our
Could David Lee Roth get past Simon? [youtube:http://youtube.com/watch?v=Xp9o6Ux563g] In an unrelated story, the Van Halen concert scheduled at the Dunk on March 24th has been postponed while doctors test somebody for something, and then cure it.
The Army is apparently mandating that workers at Walter Reed be subjected to sessions with Disney cartoons: Fifty medical workers — doctors, nurses, therapists and administrators among them — sat in a room at gazing at a slide of Donald Duck on a screen…. A year after a scandal erupted over the long-term treatment of
Not to pass judgment on people in a part of the country I’ve never been to with regard to an animal I’ve never actually seen in person, but I’m pretty annoyed about the federal government’s decision today to remove the gray wolf from the endangered species list. Here’s the AP article. It would be great
What a hilarious letter from Scott Wolfe in today’s Projo: I was recently in Providence at the lovely Providence Place mall, where it finally dawned on me. As I walked around, I was happy and yet depressed, because I was so angry that Worcester had absolutely no upscale place for me to shop and offers
Sometimes I like to start my mornings off with a cup of hot joe and a fresh batch of Craigslist Missed Connections (and/or Italian Greyhound listings on Petfinder), but the ones this morning are something of a downer. While I’m glad that some girl had a lot of fun at the Mahi Mahi show the other night and
… just bad owners. That got repeated so often during last night’s Westminster Dog Show I almost started believing it. But then I remembered Manny (may he rest in peace). At any rate, it is easy to start falling in love with all these breeds, and certainly the announcer and commentators are completely smitten. But
Tonight is the 50th anniversary of the Grammy Awards. On the schedule is a special tribute to Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band which I’m sure will be ghastly. All hope of a spontaneous unscripted moment was abandoned years ago… but wait… there’s hope. CBS is teasing a live feed from London featuring Amy Winehouse!
I don’t normally watch the news, because it brings out my unfortunate habit of yelling at the TV every time Gary Ley uses the word snizzle or anybody mentions the president or anybody mentions the governor or TJ DelSanto does anything because OH MY GOD that man annoys the crap out of me, but I
Also looking pretty weak…. an MBA from Harvard The New York Times reports that the dollar is so weak abroad that “the Taj Mahal has stopped accepting dollars for the entrance fee”. Meanwhile, back in New York City “East Village Wines, a liquor store at 138 First Avenue, accepts payment in euros as well as
