New Neighbors

It looks like I’ll be getting some new neighbors in my work world. BostInno published this article yesterday with the just announced permanent location of GE’s Boston HQ. The photo below highlights the area GE will call home.Screen-Shot-2016-03-25-at-9.44.18-AM-936x360-3

And here’s a closer look at GE’s new HQ…GE New

It’s going to be HUGE. A 2.5-acre campus right on Fort Point Channel.

It completely encompasses the open parking lot outside my building along with the two vacant buildings next to the parking garage. It’s crazy big.

I’m excited to watch the process, but leery that my commute and parking situation is going to be impacted. The garage is nearly full now and it’s certainly not cheap by any stretch of the imagination. Maybe they’ll add parking for their employees… maybe not.

I guess I’ll have to wait and see.

Thanks to BostInno and Google for the images.

Oh right… I have a blog

I will admit… I pretty much forgot about this blog until just a few minutes ago when a woman who works in my building mentioned her daughter’s desire to start a blog. She asked me if I had any recommendations and the lightbulb went off in my head… oh right… I have a blog! How sad is that?


I won’t bore you with the details that, quite frankly, I can barely remember myself.

So it’s St. Patrick’s Day. Half the building left around 4pm to go get their fill of green beer. This is a bandwagon I’ve never jumped on. I know it’s only food coloring, but the thought of drinking something… anything green (including those “healthy” green juices) is something I just can’t get past. Have I tried? Yup. And I have yet to find a green beverage that I can palate. But I digress…

My oven in disassembled in my kitchen so no corned beef and cabbage at the homestead tonight. That will have to wait until Sunday dinner. So it’s either pb&j or takeout. I’m leaning towards takeout.

Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
