Bobby Orr was a hero in my house. There he is flying through the air after winning the Stanley Cup. My dad was a hockey player himself. Good enough to get a scholarship to Boston College. My Canadian grandfather would flood their backyard in Quincy. They’d skate all winter. When I was little we’d go skate on the pond down the street. I’d bust with pride at how good he was. Boston Bruins fans are due. So go ahead boys!

The toast of Boston town.

“Under the microscope, I found that snowflakes were miracles of beauty; and it seemed a shame that this beauty should not be seen and appreciated by others. Every crystal was a masterpiece of design and no one design was ever repeated., When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost. Just that much beauty was gone, without leaving any record behind.” Wilson A. Bentley
