Happy birthday to El Presidente Jack Goolsky. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Tom Lynch provided a figgy pudding for the gang. Even though I saw it I still have no idea what figgy pudding is. I do know this though, you won't find Bill Cosby hawking this product any time soon 'cause pudding it's not.


Mac and cheese was the main course this week. In a strange twist the mac and cheese was provided by Cyndy Curley and also Karen Pajer. What makes this strange is the fact that neither conspired with the other to come up with this dish. Last week we had several people bring soup of varying varieties and the week before we had numerous rice dishes. You know what they say about women spending allot of time together. This may be a similar phenomenon.


A bit dicey running on our course these days. It's dark out and with the removal of street lighting on part of our course and the disappearing sidewalks in the construction zone we run through every step is an exercise in face plant prevention. The engineering dept at the City of Worcester assures me we will have new streetlights by mid November and let's hope this plays out.
