Remember that scene from the movie ‘The Money Pit” when Tom Hanks loses his sh*t because he’s finally hit his breaking point? Yup, that was me yesterday….laughing hysterically…..when I bought my final coffee from Dunkin Donuts. It has reached a point with Dunks where their coffee …

There is just something so friggin cool about bagpipers rolling into a pub like this. It’s one part testosterone one part nostalgic and another part “drink up because these guys are going to wipe out all the beer”. The swagger meter is just off the charts …
So I gotta send a big shout out to my good friend and birthday boy Tommy Mac for inviting me down to his shop a few days back. He was filming a show with another fellow Dot Rat and woodworking enthusiast, Paul Wahlberg. If you haven’t seen Tommy’s show on PBS yet, check out this episode.
Watching how a show comes together was a first for me, it’s very interesting to witness how much goes into it. Tommy and Paul work good together and there’s no shortage sarcasm and jokes like one would expect from a couple of Dot Rats. Both are slated to appear on each other’s shows which should make for some good TV. I’m psyched for all the success these two are having, it couldn’t happen to two more humble and grounded guys.
Thanks for taking the time!
Oh yeah….Paul any time you want to do a cook off kid! Not sure if you could hang with my chicken broccoli and ziti….it’s pretty gangster!
Through the years there have been families from Dorchester that have garnered a reputation for their will to fight. Whether it’s for a friend or a just cause, we have no shortage of folks that will raise a pen, voice or fist for the greater good.
The Kelly family is one of those standout clans.
Through generations they have battled fires for the City of Boston to save lives. They have gone off to war to fight for their country against terrorists. And they have fought for a living wage for firefighters all over Massachusetts.
Today one of the youngest members of their clan will begin his own fight with the same tenacity that has become the hallmark of his family and Dot Rats everywhere.
Four year old Tommy Kelly will fight and beat cancer!
Tommy’s pals, neighbors and the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, will be saying the rosary tonight for Tommy, in a vigil at St. Ann’s at 7pm (6/10/14). All are welcome.
A Facebook page has been set up for those wanting to send encouragement to Tommy and his family.

Neighbors Supporting Neighbors and Having a Good Time!
In their own words, “For many of us, our lives started at St. Margaret’s. We were not just born here; for generations, it was an integral part of our community. Many of us volunteered here, worked here, or had their first child here. We are excited to help make St. Mary’s Center as much a part of our lives and community as St. Margaret’s.”Join us on June 5th for the 1st Annual Neighbors Supporting Neighbors event–the brainchild of incredible group of dedicated volunteers who have deep ties to the community and St. Mary’s Center, formerly St. Margaret’s Hospital.
