Be aware of where you are

I was just driving on Centre Street and while attempting to take a left on Seaverns Avenue I had to wait while a man and a woman were engaged in a conversation in the crosswalk like they didn't have a care in the world. Even after they saw me they still didn't get out of the way. They finally moved to the left but still remained in the crosswalk engaged in a conversation as I drove by!

Cooperatively Unschooling in Jamaica Plain

Last night I gave a second free seminar on how (and why) to cooperatively unschool our children in Jamaica Plain. Many parents have shared concerns about sending their children to school and they are justified to feel this way. There appears to be a ground swell regarding this topic and as a result it's time to organize! I will be giving another seminar at Boing! on Wednesday, September 22 at 7:00pm.

There's a new dog on the block

My name is Matt Finnigan, and I'm new to the neighborhood. A Connecticut native, I moved to Somerville in 2008; my girlfriend Janine and I wanted to get a place together in Boston. In July, we moved onto Beecher St, with my 5-year-old German Shepherd, Wilma. If you are a regular at Beecher Park, you've probably seen us.

When I lived in CT, I had been a foster parent for Fidelco. They are a guide dog foundation near Hartford - the only in CT, one… Continue
