The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

The Season of the Enlightened Trees

The day after Thanksgiving. It can mean only one thing—

[Santa is huge this time of year.  No, really, he is.  That tree next to him?  It's easily a 10 foot Spruce tree.]

It's time to go out and buy a tree!

On the way back to Chez Boca, Bunny (who was driving) took a detour to see if The House On The Corner™ had swapped out their Thanksgiving display for their Christmas Extravaganza!

[``This one and then that and this and then still another, and on up and around, three lights here, seven lights still higher, a dozen clustered beyond, a hundred, five hundred, a thousand lights lit ... '']

They had. And that's just a small portion of the Christmas Extravaganza! Multiple homes are involved in this seasonal display of lights.

And of course they had the music! I wouldn't expect anything else.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
