Crushing Boston’s Tea Party Fame

Notice from the Boston Mayor’s Press Office.

Joint federal military training exercises will take place within and around the Boston area between July 26th and August 5th. Military personnel will conduct training exercises to ensure the military’s ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments, and meet mandatory training certification requirements. Helicopters will be used in some exercises.

The Boston Police Department is working with military personnel to coordinate training sites that will minimize negative impacts on our Boston citizens and their daily routines. Safety precautions have been taken to prevent risk to the general public and the military personnel involved.  With that, training site locations are not open to the public and will be guarded by uniformed personnel to provide additional safety.

I’ve Got More Apples Than You Do

...as of Thursday afternoon — the world’s largest technology company now has more cash on hand than the most powerful democracy on Earth has spending room.

Does this make Apple a hostile takeover target?

Via a Financial Post article titled U.S. balance now less than Apple cash.

Hattip to my son.

Wallace Woods, Covington, Kentucky

So, I’m down here in Wallace Woods, an old neighborhood in Covington, Kentucky, where my daughter and newish son-in-law are residing currently.  Here’s a bit of history of the place, and a few photos.

Here’s a link to photos of some of the homes (they’re thumbnails) I passed by early this morning as the critter and I took a stroll.  Wonderful old structures with character to spare.
