COMMENTS TO THE KENNEDY "MIGHT THROW OUT THE FIRST PITCH"

### Good luck Ted! Make your Grandpa Fitzgerald proud! ###

Ted Kennedy getting booed at Fenway? That's like the Pope getting booed at St. Peters. Kennedy is a hero, icon, and legend in Massachussetts. It's no fluke that he's been re-elected as senator for 40 years. If he throws the first pitch, the fans will stand, cheer, and cry.

Can't we put politics on the backburner for a day? I can't stand Obama, I didn't vote for him and consider myself a republican but Teddy K is an American Icon! Let him have his moment today and show respect for all he has done for this country. If he gets booed, I am buying a Yankee Hat and wearing it all season. I will also cancel my membership to Red Sox nation. I have confidence that true Red Sox fans have class and do the right thing.

ha what that we have individual minds and the ability to articulate them? Nice try but Red Sox away games are still the highest attended and thats due to the fact we have fans all over the place. Once you are touch by the sawx you are loyal for life, and for those of us that were part of RSN before 04 it was as much to do about the other members of RSN as it was the team. I would happily sit in the bleachers with any sawx fanyell and sing, then argue our different opinions on anything else.... even those that believe the earth is flat

Those of you that are annoyed or embarrassed by some of the boarderline dumb stuff that your fellow fans spill out on this board ought know that those same fans troll the sites of other teams a spew that drivel on every body else. I've always had a lot of respect for Sox' fans. It just seems winning had the same effect on the fan base that winning had on the New York Mets of the 80's. I find it ironic that the current Red Sox remind me so much of those Met's Teams (there's an error on Buckner) Just remember Dykstra, Carter, Howard Johnson, Keith Hernandez, Mookie Wilson, Wally Backman. Those of you that have been around may be able to understand why the rest of the country feels the way they do about your team and fan base.

The only civilians that need guns are police, security personel, livestock farmers and sports shooters. Name me one other group that needs guns. You can't. 30,694 deaths from firearms in 2005(The last collected Data). Came in third just under poisoning which are basically drug overdoses. Now do you believe that drugs should be allowed. The top source of guns by criminals; 35% from Family and Friends then Retail Stores come in secondwith 15%. As Family and friends are law abiding citizens they would have bought them licensed so thatts 50% sold by retailers and approved by your government.....elected by you. Take all of them away from the criminals and law abiding citizens (that don't really want the guns, but as the government allows the sale of them to criminals, they feel they need them) As the murder rate free falls police will have more time on their hands to tackle your drug problem. But fight terror instead at a cost of $611,300,000,000. How many have died from terror this year?

A Golden Age for Cheapskates

In a Lousy Economy, People Dig a Bit Deeper to Turn Up Deals

Last fall, the Woodbine, Md., mother of three figured out a great way to get some: online giveaways. She has entered about 40 so far. She has won T-shirts, cleaning products, a small portable vacuum, olive oil, beef jerky and -- best of all -- a Nintendo DS on Web sites such as http://MeTime.com, http://TheMotherhood.com and http://5minutesformom.com.

"The lure of free stuff is quite appealing," she said. "I never considered myself a winner. I don't think I ever won bingo. My name was never drawn from a hat. However, I've been extraordinarily successful at the giveaways."

The recession has emboldened a certain kind of consumer: The mooch. With dwindling retirement savings, a higher cost of living and wobbly job market, they don't just want discounts on items they used to pay full price for without a second thought. They want freebi…

THE ANCIENT SHIP APPEARS AGAIN AT SHORT SANDS YORK BEACH MAINE

A RECENT NOR EASTER HIT THE NEW ENGLAND COAST AND AS THOUGHT THIS WRECK SURFACED AGAIN FROM ITS BURIED DEMISE--The skeleton only appears periodically - the last time was in 2013 - always after a significant coastal storm, and always attracting attention. Archaeological work conducted in 1980 indicated the wreck is a sloop of about Revolutionary War age. It is likely a “pinky,” a type of vessel with a high, narrow stern and square rigging easily maneuverable along the coast of Maine. Pinkies were popular as fishing and cargo vessels. The first sighting of the skeleton was in 1958, and then it has surfaced periodically right up to the present day - and usually after a good spring nor’easter. Word spread quickly about this sighting via social media, and people came over the weekend and on Monday as well. First, they had to navigate the seaweed- and rock-strewn streets of York Beach. They were also precluded from parking cars in most of the Ellis Park lot, which was buried under a layer …

CREATE YOUR OWN MOSAIC

I've always felt a special fascination for mosaics. From Roman tile compositions to current digital collages, I think they're an awesome artistic expression.
That's why I was so happy when I found Andreamosaic.
This tool enables you to create amazing mosaics from your digital pictures in a very easy way.
It requires having a large collection of photos to use as tiles, that's true. Fortunately the installation file already includes a pack of 500 sample photos that produce excellent results.
The program's interface is quite dull; in fact it's simply a gray window with too much text on it. But the mechanics are easy to understand so you'll be creating your own mosaics in no time!
Plus, the program includes a 20-page manual that explains everything thoroughly. Just remember that the more tiles you use, the longer it will take to generate the mosaic and the larger the final file will be.
