Massachusetts now has a disc golf course designed especially for young adults. Nice 9 hole course in Shrewsbury. Max length of holes are about 225. I got to work on my mid range game and the wife and kids played their first "real" round.

Played Wickham Park in CT for the first time. Great course with a mixture of open field bombs and tunnel wood shots. Challenging but very fair. I'm not an open field fan but the elevation and pin placements made it enjoyable.

So much more than disc golf at this park. Take time to stroll around the gardens and stop to look at the peacocks in the aviary between holes 11 and 12!

Happy (belated) Towel Day!

I just found out, one day late, that there is a "holiday" known as Towel Day.  This day celebrates the work of Douglas Adams, most noted for the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series.  Fans of his work carry around a towel whereever they go so they can recognize eachother.

Why a towel?  You'll have to read the book to find out!  Also, you'll know why 42 is a very, very, very important number.  Trust me, read the book.  It's awesome.

Still haven't found a reasoning why it's on May 25th though.  If anyone knows I'd appreciate the answer.

This bag is well regarded as a "budget" rucksack.  Little brother to the waxed canvas one but still with the quality that LL Bean is known for.  I've been waiting for a sale and now it's 20% off.  Price: $69.96!
This legendary customer favorite has been updated to include modern features without sacrificing its classic retro styling. Recurve shoulder straps have been added so you can more comfortably carry loads on long day hikes. A new padded Air Mesh back panel is more breathable to help keep you cool and comfortable. An interior sleeve safely holds a laptop; it can also double as a pocket for a hydration bladder. Extra padding in the hip belt adds co...

So the military is doing joint exercises in Texas (in fact, the largest joint exercise was done in Texas in the past).  Republicans are so out of their minds that they actually believe that this "exercise" is Obama taking over Texas via martial law.

Everytime I think I've heard it all..... they find a new way to boggle my mind.
Texas' GOP governor is sending the Texas State Guard to monitor a military training exercise after right-wing militia alleged it's just a cover for the president's plan to put Texas under martial law.

On Radiolab (http://www.radiolab.org) tonight they were having a fascinating episode about blood.  One report was incredible...

A group of researchers were doing learning tests on mice (putting a platform in a water maze and seeing how long it took mice to "learn" where it was).  Younger mice learned quicker than older mice.  They then put blood from the older mice into the younger ones and vice versa.  The young mice started acting like older mice and the older mice was learning quicker like younger ones!

A seperate group of researchers (in Boston I believe) were studing heart size.  As mice get older their hearts get larger.  When introduced to younger mice blood, the hearts decreased in size.

It's believed that certian proteins in the blood are responsible for effecting different functions of the body and researchers are now combing through the thousands of combinations of protiens to find out what effects what.

My immediate thought.... Oh snap, Vampires!

The Manor has been in West Boylston for as long as I can remember. This review is for a recent visit in March 2015. We arrived on a Friday night at approximatly 5:40 and were advised of a 20-30 minute wait. The wait was on the lower time of 20 minutes which I didn't think was bad for a Friday night. Shortly after we arrived though the foyer filled up as more patrons arrived and I'm sure the wait became longer. Service was some of the quickest we've experienced. Since we looked at the menu while waiting we ordered immediatly upon seating. Courses came out within minutes of finishing the last and the server was quick to clear clean plates. While efficient, the server was also very pleasent. We aren't slow eaters so this suited us. Everyone has that one dish at that one restaurant that sets the benchmark. Everytime you have it somewhere else you compare it to that one dish. Well, The Manor not only sets the Gold Standard for Chicken Parmesan, they blow it away. This restaurant has made it impossible for me to actually order it anywhere else as I'm sure to be dissapointed. We also had buffalo wings and both agreed they are some of the best we've ever had and my wife had a backed haddock which she said was very good. In the past she's had eggplant parmesan which got rave reviews. The only slight negative I'd say about this place is the layout is a little strange. In the past years they've expanded their banquet hall side and refurbished one of the dining rooms (now being called the "Draught House"). The new room has a great bar area (with 30+ beers on tap). The strange thing is it sits directly next to another bar/lounge area. The final dining room is still unrefurbished and the decor is very dated. Due to the layout, servers must pass through the foyer area with food to access one of the rooms. While we were waiting to be seated we saw servers weaving between customers with hot plates. The layout is inefficent and some with some planning they could have added quite a few more tables. The Manor is what I'd call "the old standby" type of restaurant. Can't find anywhere new to go? Go to the Manor. Can't agree on what restaurant to go to? Go to the Manor. Don't feel adventurous and want someplace you know you'll get a great meal? Go to the Manor. The ultimate review of a restaruant is if you'd return. Well, since I've eaten here multiple times I guess that's a "yes". More than that though, I'd bring friends and highly recommend it to others.

Stopped here for a dinner while catching a show at the Palace Theater with friends. This was the only establishment in the area that didn't require reservations. We lucked out that a table opened just as we walked in. The table ordered a variety of foods (pizza, burgers, salad, wings, ect) and no one had a bad thing to say. Those that got alcoholic drinks also had no complaints. Décor is nice, like an old library but small. Service was adequate and nice. I'm not sure about local happenings and if the restaurant acts "different" when there is a theater show but the menu did have the title of "Show Menu" so things may not operate the same during day to day business. I'd certainly return if I'm back in the area.

First of all, good luck finding the entrance to the parking lot. I'm not going to tell you where it is, finding it is your punishment for not heeding this review. Where to begin? The décor is terrible. Old 70's bar. Cheap banquet tables and chairs. It's basically a bar with some restaurant seating in back. Food was barely passible. I had the chicken parmesan. The pasta was thrown on the plate and sauce only on one side. This made the side with the sauce hot and the side without cold. The chicken was overcooked and there was a huge glob of cheese on top. The garlic bread was overpowering and soggy. My kids had a cheese and tomato pizza and the dough was dry and the cheese greasy. My wife had a chicken quesadilla and Caesar salad. The salsa tasted terrible (I tried it too) and the dressing for the salad tasted odd also. Finally, to top it off, for some reason they decided to put the walk in cooler attached to the dining room. Multiple times they went into it and caused a frigid blast of air to enter the seating area. The server was nice but she seemed over worked. I think she was the only one there and was handling the front and rear of the restaurant. We were asked how everything was when we were 75% of the way through the meal and I had to hunt her down for the check. I don't know what restaurant all the other reviews are from, but they certainly don't reflect my experience. This establishment might have passed muster when there was less competition in the area but based on my meal I highly doubt I will return. There are simply much better choices for dining to waste time (and money) here.

Beautiful classic theater. Rivals upscale theaters in New York and Boston that I've been to. There is much more seats than I expected. I sat front balcony and had no complaints of the view. We saw a comedy show and the sound was good but I can't comment on the acoustics for a concert or musical. Entry and egress was very smooth and easy. Plenty of restaurants (although most require reservations during show nights) in the area and there is a parking garage one block away that has free parking during show times.

We've only had pizza there but have done both take out and dine in. So far the pizza has always been excellent and what they call a large is easily an extra large everywhere else. They have a large menu available and even do breakfast. The decor is very nice for a "pizza joint" more to the level of a full service restaurant. Service is always fast and friendly but the best part of all is that often they come around and hand out little desserts to the kids (usually a Little Debbie type of treat). It may sound small, but it is they type of service that makes people want to return over and over. We would get our pizza there every time but it is on the other side of the city for us, but we still go there often it is that good. Update: My wife and I have also now had the "Make your own salad". They have a huge list of ingredients you can choose from. A little pricey, especially if you add buffalo chicken like we do but it is LARGE and the chicken is marinated and delicious! Update 2: The restaurant has now moved to a new location. What was once a nice restaurant is now a hastily put together coffee shop type atmosphere. The layout makes no sense and the staff/patrons bump into your seats all the time. They are trying to do outdoor ice cream also. I have to drop a star. The food is still good but moving to this location was a huge step back. We never eat there anymore, just pick up only.

Just another burger place pretty much sums it up. It advertises family but all I saw was one collage of pictures. It has the Hollywood name behind it but has only 3 movie posters up. An OK burger joint that is suffering an identity crisis. The bun was the best part of the burger. Onion rings left grease that stayed with my wife and I the rest of the day. Expect a 30-45 min ride from Boston. My advice? Find a Fudruckers. Much better experience.
