I'm with you paly, I little kindess don't hurt any one. I think an awful lot of people have forgotten how to be nice. Smile, your face won't crack.


Hi Jim: So true - all the a………..holes out there on the road and no it is not exclusive to Somerville, it's every where now. It was funny too about expecting a "thank you" for holding a door for someone. I thought it was just me but if I hold the door for anyone I expect a "thanks" otherwise I do the same at the second door - lol. I thought everyone learned those little basics growing up - oh my bad, guess not. Have you noticed there are a lot of rude people out here now? Jillian

I'm also with you paly. Too bad those folks spoil it for the rest of us.

Guess we can still try to "Do A Good Turn Daily" but as you have definitely alluded it's good to "Be Prepared".

Hey Betty, No I am not related to Frank. Sorry. Whos from Troop 71 former eagle scout. Drop me a line


We refer to Powderhouse Circle as "Death Circle". A little courtesy never hurt anyone. Whether you realize it or not, when you are on your cell phone when your driving you are not paying attention to what is going on around you. Just not a good idea. Remember, it could be your mother or your daughter or son that gets hit. You have to live with that the rest of your life. Is it worth it?

Hi Mike B.,
It's Gary M. I was one of 'little kids' on the block when you, Jimmy and the gang hung out on Baystate Ave. Definitely great memories.

Editor's Note (JN): The (new) Somerville News website is up - you can comment on stories over there.
