(303) 586-6397

If you get a call from (303) 586-6397, don't worry about it. Its a spoof number used by telemarketers. Not sure why they called me and left a weird message.

The 303 area code is the Metropolitan Denver, Colorado area.

Theodore Parker

Lexington Massachusetts is a famous town where the birthplace of American was fought. You can find lots of monuments all over town of famous houses or battles.

If you are ever at the intersection of Concord Ave and Spring Street you may see a monument near the Community Therapeutic Day School. However the location of the white fence makes it hard to read.

The monument marks the birthplace of Theodore Parker. He was born at the house in 1810. From Wipedia:

Theodore Parker (August 24, 1810 May 10, 1860) was an American Transcendentalist and reforming minister of the Unitarian church.
In 1850, Parker quoted and made popular the words of John Wycliffe in his Prologue to the first English translation of the Bible to use the phrase, "of all the people, by all the people, for all the people" which later influenced Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.
