(Actually used to, many yrs ago, when I'd visit the museum, til the parking became resident-only). And fried clams. We have fried clams (only I don't grow them in my back yard...) <Snip> We've been getting the Storms From Hell lately. Rain, rain, rain - and more rain. Last night, I thought my little long-haired chihuahua was going to have a nervous breakdown. Thought thunder & lightning like that only existed back in Arizona. <Snip> :-P :-P :-P

All kidding aside, I wouldn't trade this area for /anyplace/. Cambridge is great. Boston is terrific. There is so much that is so easy to get to - and we have the (never-on-time, but heck, it's/ there/) T. Theaters, parks, restaurants galore - what I love most about this area are the little shops, little restaurants, run by the men and women who own them. That didn't exist in AZ. Yeah, there are chains here - but they aren't exclusive (Krispy Kreme just didn't 'get' us - and they are now closed around here. Fini.) Then there are the museums, too many colleges to choose from (I need to decide soon - I'll be leaving my little community college). But - I don't have a garden this year, and even if I did, I wouldn't be able to grow those oranges, lemons, - but yes, I could (if I wasn't in an apartment) grow apples & pears & lots of berries. Our growing window is shorter - but then we have wonderful cold February nights to dream through the gardening catalogues - wait - what am I saying. With global warming, our Feb.'s have been pretty warm, and we might end up being able to grow those lemons after all... Lynne Steve Hay wrote: <Snip>
