iWatchMarch 10, 2015

This is pretty cool thought of ways that the Apple iWatch may integrate with home automation systems:

As for home automation, the watch can detect your body temp and adjust the house temp to be warmer or cooler. So if your too hot from a workout, the house will be cool when you get home.

Parking Lot AvailabilityApril 10, 2014

Just a quick update on the limited availability of parking spaces at the Framingham MBTA parking lot. In short, there isn't much parking spaces for commuters that take the commuter rail after 8am.

This morning, I noticed there was only one available parking space in the public commuter rail parking lot. This public parking lot is available for both monthly and daily commuters. This basically means that if your taking the 8:18 (P512) train out of Framingham, your fresh out of luck finding a space at the commuter rail parking lot.

If you are planning on taking the Commuter Rail out of Framingham on a regular bases, you should considered some of the alternative parking areas near the commuter rail. You are not guaranteed a parking spot if you sign up for the Monthly parking program. There is a two hour parking limit around many streets in downtown, this applies to meter and non-meter parking.

If you find a broken or missing meter you will get a ticket or your car could get towed if you park for more than 2 hours. Warning: The town is looking for additional reveue, and they will give you a ticket! There are 12 broken meter spots around the train station, and they are happy to write up tickets every day!

Here are some alternative parking areas around downtown. You will need to contact the owners before you park in the lots:

Stop and Shop GasolineDecember 22, 2010

This morning I saved $12.21 by filling up my car at a gas station that accepted the Stop and Shop Reward card. Simply by using the Stop and Shop card and buying things that we needed every day, I was able to save a lot of money at the pump.

I was very impressed with the saving $.80 a gallon and when I saw the price drop to $2.49 a gallon I was very surprised.

If you shop at Stop and Shop, check out the nearest Gasoline station in your area and see how much you save just buy purchasing groceries that you need anyways.

We suggest that you schedule an appointment with your Subaru Dealer as soon as possible to have your vehicle?s ABS electronic control unit cover inspected.

2010 Legacy 2.5i PremiumOctober 24, 2009

On October 7th, I purchased a 2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium. The car is really nice and I am having fun driving it. I was lucky to get a great trade-in for my 2000 Subaru Impreza.

When the car hits about 1,000 miles I'll be going in for an early oil change. I suspect that it will happen later this week.
