Let’s go to the Irish Festival

One of the best things to hit Adam’s Corner since the invention of the 30 pack. The Irish Heritage Festival is coming Sunday October 9th from noon to 8PM. I went for the first time last year and had a great time catching up with folks…

NKOTB and cougar tourism…..

NKOTB and cougar tourism…..

Is this woman serious? Wifi pizza? Jamaica Park? Listen…The New Kids have had a positive impact on the neighborhood without a doubt. You just gotta love some regular kids from Dot that turned themselves into multi millionaires. I remember the early 90’s when they where…

Dorchester…the way it was…and the way it could be.

Dorchester…the way it was…and the way it could be.

We read a lot about our neighborhood on a day-to-day basis with most of it being negative. I’m not going to blame anyone for what happens here….I’m a true believer that money (or lack there of) is the root of crime in any neighborhood. With poverty comes problems…the…

Dumplings, Victory and Death?

Dumplings, Victory and Death?

So this 77 year old Ukranian guy enters a dumpling eating contest. He shows up and absolutley crushes everyone. What does he win? A jar of sour cream…….shortly after he dies. Listen the people who threw this event are to blame for this guy’s death…a…

I’m rich….please tax me.

I’m rich….please tax me.

Ok here is one of the most common sense issues Republicans repeatedly fail on. And the Prez just called their bluff. Why should you pay a reduced tax rate if you’re a millionaire? Shouldn’t you pay just as much of your income as the man making…

Latte’s and Jobs…

Latte’s and Jobs…

Starbucks is by far one of my biggest vices. I like the way Howard Schultz runs the company. I enjoy the folks who work there…they are treated well, have benefits and it shows. I mean how many times have you ordered coffee at Dunks and…

The definition of a DotRat…

The definition of a DotRat…

I consider big George an elder statesman of the neighborhood. These are the folks who are our connection to the roots of Dorchester. They have seen it all and are wealth of information. Most of all…they make us proud to be DotRats. I think we…

Here comes Lettuce!!

Here comes Lettuce!!

So the Soulive crew has a project band they call Lettuce. This is probably one of the best party bands around. Anyone who knows about music will probably agree that soul comes from within and cannot be faked. All of these guys have soul, their roots are…
