For Gerard…

For Gerard…

Twenty five years ago today, Dorchester lost one of its sons. Gerard Duchaney was taken from us much too soon like other beloved Dot Rats from his era with names like Maffie, Holloran, Noble, and Santangelo.  Even though Neponset lost a little piece of it’s fabric…

Where ya taking Ma?

Where ya taking Ma?

Wow…feels good to be back writing again. Trying to find inspiration to write can be tough at times but, I figured why not combine two things I love…Ma and food. Personally I enjoy cooking for Ma since she is the one who actually taught me. The…

Coffee with a Tenor…

Years back I end up crossing paths with this burly Irish kid from Lynn. Being the prototypical young Dot Rat, I didn’t care much for people outside my own neighborhood but this kid was different. It seemed no matter what he did, it was with…

Dot girls regulate…

Why Marty won…

Why Marty won…

It’s pretty obvious he won because he’s a Dot Rat first and foremost. If it sounds like I’m gloating, it’s because I am. I’m extremely psyched for this guy and I think the example he’s put forth will inspire a whole new generation of Dorchester…
