Back down to the Cape

Left the parking garage near Fleet Center at 5:33 and made it to the Hanover split at 6:18, under very light traffic for a warm Friday afternoon. No Traffic at the Sagamore Bridge.

Strange Sign

After getting a rough quote from the Auto Repair shop and it appears that it is time to look at buying another car.

On my way into work this morning I passes a very strange sign near Mass Eye & Ear Hospital:
Caution: Entering Alcohol Free Zone.

Can anyone explain the logic behind that sign? Maybe it would be logical to say:
Caution: Leaving Alcohol Free Zone.

Sir Cricket's Fish & Chips

I did eat at Sir Cricket's Fish & Chips yesterday! The Clam rolls are pretty good and the resturant was crowded at noon time. It appears to be a favorite local spot for Orleans residents.

At the '400 Club East' in East Harwich the meat lasagna is very popular and sells out quickly!

Cape Cod Busy Weekend

It took 3 hours to travel from Orleans to Concord at 8pm today! That includes the 1 hour and 06 mins travel time from Orleans to the top of the Sagamore Bridge! The traffic was backup from exit 2 to the bridge. There were some traffic congestion around the exits from exit 6 onwards.

Fastest Time off the Cape

It takes 35 minutes to go from the Orleans Rotatory to the Sagamore Bridge, assuming zero traffic. It takes 1 hour from the Mass Pike on 128 / Route 3 to the Sagamore Bridge.

Warmest Day in 2003

Today was the first day in 2003 that I didn't wear a jacket. It's in the 50's today. There have been warmer days, its just that I decided not to wear a jacket today.

Free Starbucks Samples

You have a better chance at getting a free sample at Starbucks at 1:30pm. That's their quiet period of the day. :)

New London's Pizza

I had an American sub at New London's Pizza today. Really wasn't that much different than the Italian sub that I normally have, I think it had more onions.

In front of the West Concord Pharmacy they put on little rabbits and Easter eggs. Its funny because its right next to a Christmas reindeer.

The weather has gotten warmer and most of the snow has melted where the sun shines on it all day.

Starbucks in Burlington

Starbucks in Burlington had a lot of sitting place, however it would have been nice if it was next to a Barnes & Noble like Framingham. Didn't see any wall outlets.

A new Starbucks is opening up in Acton. They are conducting interviews at the Concord Starbucks on March 20th and March 21st.

Concord Starbucks Hours

The Concord's Starbucks closes at 10pm on Friday and Saturday nights. Its very quiet in the store after 6:30...

The White House is painted using Keeler & Long paints. Keeler & Long makes paints that can withstand a nuclear meltdown or last for years on electrical transformers.

The only way to cancel an Earthlink account is via Phone. They reward you with a 30min wait, and some really bad on hold music.
