She must be loads of fun at social gatherings.
Girlfren, get over it.
I loved that place.
My senior year of high school, I had a first period class and a last period class on Mondays, and we had open campus. I went to the Square every Monday to check out the import music mags at Out of Town and rifle through all the used record stores. It's too bad that's really not possible anymore.
LO ****ING L
That is BRILLIANT news...love her little white eyelashes....she's a cutie!!!
In 1971 a computer geek bought a magazine there and then showed it to his friend who was also a geek.
The result was a small company called Microsoft
From the archives: Harvard Square newsstand sold the magazine that started a revolution - The Boston Globe
A young man buys a magazine at the Out of Town News newsstand in Cambridge's Harvard Square. He shows it to a friend. It could have happened at any time over the past five decades at the newsstand in the busy crossroads.
But the two young men were Paul Allen and Bill Gates, the co-founders of Microsoft. And the magazine was the January 1975 issue of Popular Electronics where they read about a primitive personal computer -- and it dawned upon them that someday a computer would be in every home and on every desk.
"I can still remember grabbing the Popular Electronics as if it was yesterday," Allen, who made the fateful purchase, said last week in a statement.
Peter Gammons, Will McDonough and Kevin Dupont went there to buy out of town papers so they could write their notes columns. It was the only place in Boston that carried all of the Canadian hockey magazines.
If I needed a ticket for a game they always came through and never scalped me because they knew me.
Sheldon Cohen got all the credit but it was his brother Fred that ran the place.
Harvard Sq has been dying for years and now there is little left.
I just want to thank the security at Brigham and Women's Hospital over an incident that happened Thursday morning.
I was checking in to see a hand specialist who was going to do an ultrasound himself on my Game 7 injury ( bashing camera on side when Blues went up 2-0 ) My iPhone X is in a wallet case and somehow in the showing my ID and insurance card and being passed a clipboard to answer questions for the doctor I put the phone on the counter like an idiot.
I knew in 30 seconds I had screwed up but the phone was gone. The receptionist called my phone and we could hear it ringing in the direction of the patient who was behind me. They called security and the lead officer saw the glare in my eyes and said don't worry.
So they talk to him and another officer noticed I had an Apple watch and she said 'Can you ping your phone?'
I did and the siren went off and the other patient said 'That can't be his phone, I shut it off'
Keep in mind they know who he is because he registered.
They asked me if I wanted to press charges and I said your call - Turned out to be moot as he had outstanding warrants in Quincy and Rhode Island. They also told me he exploited a flaw all hospitals have because of HIPPA rules on security cameras.
Bottom line - I made a mistake with my guard down but that security team defused the situation in a very professional matter. The female officer admonished me for saying I had a Discover card and said you should have said a Bruins card.
Thank You Brigham and Women's Hospital Security and Police
Robbie Robertson, Ringo Starr plays 'The weight '
Of all the things I miss about "old" Cambridge and Boston it's this I miss the most, the book and record stores, I would spend a Saturday just going from record store to record store and checking out the book and magazine stores along the way.
I have a couple of tablets and it's how I get my import music magazines now (Classic Rock and Metal Hammer) because it is so much cheaper (Barnes and Noble was still carrying both up to a few months ago) but I miss going out and seeing what was new in magazine shops. Same goes for Montreal, among other fines establishments St. Catherines street had some great magazine and book shops.
The one thing I missed in quoting this in my rage at Jillson was my jealousy at you getting to see the Beatles. I've seen McCartney, Harrison and Starr would have loved to have seen them as a unit.
Man that was great! They even got Willie Nelson's kid in there, he phrases just like his old man on guitar
Looks like training camp for most NFL team
It all comes together nicely. Really liked it.
Salesman comes in, he's talking to me, I'm not really listening and he brings in some treats for the office and a bag full of like 6 bags of doritos and potato chips and I heard him say these are from my Super Bowl party....
Now, I don't eat those kinds of things, but isn't that old? Secondly, should I give a warning to all who come by that they are from February. They are unopened thankfully.
Yeah, that's definitely old. Probably not a big deal if they were in a climate-controlled environment like the factory, but if they were from a SB party, they've likely just been sitting in the guy's house exposed to humidity and big swings in temperature (even when sealed - doesn't matter).
I'd just throw them out. If you do leave them out for people to eat, definitely leave a note.
Look at the expiration date. Even then I'd be leery about eating it or letting other people eat it.
Definitely odd and I'd absolutely give a warning even if they are unopened
Now I have to know: what were the other "treats" he brought in? Anything perishable?
Honestly......what even halfway decent salesperson not only brings in old, stale food as a gift to potential clients.....but goes even further and admits to it right in front of said clients?!?
They looked fresh they were brownies and cookies in those clear stop n shop tins. People are eating the chips and I told them. The exp is in December 2019 which is really old for chips even tho they are "fresh" lol.
I saw Ringo at Harborlights and McCartney at Yankee Stadium. McCartney was phenomenal. Ringo was going through the motions.
I'd let them eat them then tell them afterwards.
But I'm like that.
The morons trying to "invade" Area 51 should have done more research. There is a 50 mile buffer zone inbetween the base and the border. They also all met at the wrong gate.
Tom Yawkey refused to let them use Fenway Park and Harvard said no as well so Suffolk was it. Surprisingly we were able to hear them but they were only onstage for about a half an hour.
The seventh date of The Beatles' final tour took place at the Suffolk Downs Racetrack in Boston, Massachusetts, where they gave one concert before 25,000 people.
The concert began at 8pm. The Beatles had previously played in Boston on 12 September 1964 at the Boston Garden. This time they were in the middle of a horse racing course.
The support acts during The Beatles' final tour were The Remains, Bobby Hebb, The Cyrkle and The Ronettes. The group's set consisted of 11 songs: Rock And Roll Music, She's A Woman, If I Needed Someone, Day Tripper, Baby's In Black, I Feel Fine, Yesterday, I Wanna Be Your Man, Nowhere Man, Paperback Writer and Long Tall Sally.
After the show The Beatles and their entourage stayed at a Boston hotel. They left the city at 11.30am the following morning and flew to Memphis, Tennessee.
Harvard in 1970 did allow concerts and also let the Patriots play there for one season.
Check out the acts that played at Harvard - each show was general admission at the cost of TWO DOLLARS
I'm generally very wary of expiration dates for many perishables - meat and dairy being foremost. That stuff can literally kill you. However, I would have no problem tearing into a sealed bag of Doritos, even if it's a little past its expiration. The barrier to the elements is pretty good, and as long as you haven't had super extreme temperatures (ie a bag that's been at your unheated/un-air-conditioned/damp summer home for 5 years), you're probably okay. Grab a chip and break it. If it feels like it has its normal "crunch" for whatever type of chip it is, go for it. If it bends instead of breaks, toss it.
A tray of "homemade"-in-store brownies and cookies? No. No. No. Toss 'em.
Many "expiration dates" are "sell by", and not "use by" dates...there's a little wiggle room if it says "sell by" a certain date.
Next few weeks Im gonna have heartaches
