There be rowers here!

Urban Hellhole readers, please take note...the crew teams are in town for the Head!

That's right, it's Head of the Charles weekend.

It looks like Saturday will be better than Sunday...but still it's gonna be a bit windy for the crews. Back in the day, I was a coxswain for BU (BOO CREW!). I ended up competing on the 4-line boat in the Foot of the Charles (late in the season!). If you ever have a chance to go out on the Charles, definitely take it. It's probably one of the best views...even in stormy/foggy weather.

Roses in October

As many of you know, I volunteer at the Boston Public Garden. I work on the Rose Brigade under the tutelage of China Altman. The Brigade works with the Friends of the Public Garden

Our season was incredible this year [this year so far, Michael...they just won't stop blooming!]. We've had an abundance all throughout the summer, starting in about April and they're still going.

Here are some pictures from this afternoon...I know...It's Fall and everything!

Enjoy...we still are.
