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.

Extreme donuts, Canton, Michigan edition

“Tim Hortons? I thought that was a Canadian chain!”

“It is, but the border to Canada is just over there, to the south.”

“South? Isn't Canada north of the US?”

“Mostly, except for Detroit, which darts out over Winsor, Canada.”

[Picture of a chocolate glazed Tim Horton donut] Ignore the less than perfect glaze over the donut—that was due to my man-handling the donut to get a less-than-worthy Instagram picture.

“You know, these donuts don't live up to the hype. They're just okay.”


“I think I prefer the donuts from Publix.”

“Don't let them hear you say that—we may not get out of Michigan alive.”

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.
