"Feed me Symore"
Or is it Seymore? Anyway: has any-one, any-body, any-person(s), any individual, group, or local institution sought, visited, or purchased flowers from the flower shop in Central Square? The reason I ask is that everybody I've spoken to do not recall that shop ever-ever-ever having a great selection of flowers.
So - here is my real question: Is it really a flowershop?
Wine and Cheese Shop
I'm still waiting.
Coke in Glass Bottles
If you're too young to remember Coke sold in glass bottles, you, my friend, are missing out on one sumptuous piece of Americana.
Coke in those cute little 8 oz glass bottles cost much more than a 20 oz plastic one. Glass bottles as we all know can be a hazard when dropped and broken or puposefully busted against a counter in a bar-fight. So in the interest of public safety Coke many years ago started to package most of its products in plastic bottles. To this I say - bull$#!+.
Coke started using plastic bottles because they were plastic - cheaper to make, much lighter - cheaper to ship, and at the time non-recyclable - so unregulated, cheaper to trash. In the process, they ensured the global icon of liquid candy would taste different for all future generations; which, would be ok if the stuff actually tasted better, but it doesn't. Coke in glass bottles taste better. Much, much better! No plastic taste. No petroleum distillates. No polycarbon-blah-blah-blah leaching into the highly acidic contents. Take a can of Coke, a plastic bottle of Coke, and a glass bottle of Coke - taste. You may actually like the Coke in a non-glass container better, but I guarantee you will taste the difference between the containers. I choose glass, because I feel its flavor is superior, and we all know how much of an elitist I am. I also choose glass because, well, I'm a bit old-fashioned.
It's Like Rambo....
I hear the Italian restaurant on Union St. is not dead, but just in slumber as kinks get worked out. I don't know the details of the delay. Perhaps it's bureaucracy. If so... they'll need that M60.
The Ghost of Masons
The scaffolding on the front of the building is gone! Hurray! The bricks appear to be fixed and in much better condition. Hurray! They left rope and other junk on the roof of the Plumbing business behind our building.... sigh. I think they're coming back to repair the back of the building too. In which case they'll probably use the rope again. I'll find out, because if they're not we may have further "issues."
Has anyone moved into the first floor?
Ok, that's the end of my stickies.
