bigpete53: Diogenes: Hey big guy! Where you been? Hope all is well. Don't want to clog the thread.

Hey! I needed to step away from the computer for a bit. Started a business and bought a country house, so my days are really busy. Concerned for the Boston folks, of course, so thought I'd pop in and give a shout out to BusketsMcBride for making the trek to NOLA.


Had triple hernia surgery so I missed it once again.  4th time's the charm!

I don't want to know how you got a triple hernia. I'm just going to assume it came from improper lube application.

Not sure if this is fake or someone creating a fake account for attention. But I'll just leave this here.

Just heard Somerville is on lockdown for a controlled explosion soon, can anyone who lives there confirm that?

It has been brought up to me through various outlets that the suspect is in Watertown and not my neighborhood. Not sure if people are trying to be reassuring or think I'm being dramatic but since people are being evacuated in my area I think I have the right to concern.  I'd like to believe that the cops are hot on this guys trail but there's a reason the surrounding towns have a in-shelter going on.  It's possible he's been able to move from Watertown to another neighborhood.  Do not take that lightly my fellow Middlesex county farkers.

I love you, Boston Farkers.  You're on lockdown, the police are about to go Terminator on some guy who tried to terrorize your city.  Your reaction: "You gotta get to Gingerbread House in Winchestah!  Those muffins are wicked awesome!"

Terrorists: "I terrorize you!"

Boston: "Fahk you!"

Stay safe and keep on rocking!

Not to my knowledge. Traffic was light.

where do you work?

Magnificent Muffin in West Medford is open in case anyone from the Medford area ever goes there.  Great muffins!

Awesome muffins but those ladies are mean!

You must not be nice to them because they love me

The place on Broadway? Those ladies are SUPER mean. They aren't nice to ANYONE.

no its on 60 in West Medford, directly next to the commuter rail.

holy shiat they franchised?

Ok, the place on Broadway in Teele Sq has been nicknamed "bagel Nazi" because those ladies are super, super angry with life.

I've always wondered if it was a franchise or not too, seen that one before on my way to Davis.  As far as I know, Joan is the owner of the one in West Medford and shes never once mentioned the other.  She gets there super early every day to make her muffins fresh.  She is really nice, you should try that shop out.

Have you ever been to the Gingerbread House in Winchester? Best muffins ever!

Will have to check it out.  Normally I just drive through Winchester and say to my wife:  "wow, we can't even afford the outhouse for one of these houses..."


They're wicked expensive houses to be sure, but it's a nice town to bike through. I'll have to check out this shop in West Medford and meet these "bagel nazi's".

the Bagel Nazis work at another Magnificent Muffin, not the one in West MEdford.  These women are very nice.  Sour Creme Coffee cake muffin grilled with butter is amazing.

UMass Dartmouth has learned that a person being sought in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing has been identified as a student registered at UMass Dartmouth.
The campus is closed.
Individuals on campus should shelter in place unless instructed otherwise.

Checking in from Watertown from middle of the search area. I got to watch a swat team search my yard very early this morning and now my dog really needs to take a leak but I think he's going to have to hold it.

That local Fox stream had a girl on saying she lived "a couple doors down from him" that he was an exchange student, he lived on campus and took a 200 level psych class with her, and he seemed "nice".

so there's that

Worcester native here. I went into Boston at 8 this morning. Still plenty of pedestrians on the street, but a huge police presence everywhere. Authorities are very aggressive in keeping people away from certain streets. An officer actually raised a shotgun towards my (government plated) vehicle to warn me away on Dorchester St. I hopped back on the pike and got out around 9, and saw at least a dozen marked and unmarked police vehicles flying towards Boston on the pike while I headed back to Worcester.
