Councillor,

            Thought you might want to see these, from the common in Boston, over 33,000 flags were placed and they read off the names of those from the Commonwealth who were killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan (The parents of the young men who were killed read the names, it was really tough to get through).

Over the Bridge- Boston Day Trip Slideshow

I spent yesterday in Boston with Grandkid #1. A beautiful day! Walked the Commons, shopped, met up with a friend who took us to dinner at Tremont 647. Great company, fun day.

On Boylston we bumped into a motley group of bicyclists. We found out that this was a Critical Mass ride which  is a bicycling event typically held on the last Friday of every month in over 300 cities around the world. The ride was originally founded in 1992 with the idea of drawing attention to how unfriendly the city was to bicyclists. Click on this photo to find out more about Critical Mass.picture-162
