Did you see my post about my 12 monthly challenges? I’m not doing traditional New Year’s resolutions this year, I’m choosing 12 mini challenges to do each month in 2019. Each month I’ll do something like go running everyday for a month, do yoga everyday for a month, keep a journal everyday etc etc. You can read the full list here: 12 months of challenges for a better 2019 I decided to go with no TV for January. Now I’m not suggesting that watching TV is a bad thing and when I tell people about it they seem to think I’m judging them for watching TV. I’m really not! My problem with TV is the fact that I watch it mindlessly. Sam and I have a little routine each evening where we put the kids to bed, tidy the house, make dinner and then sit down and watch TV. It’s a nice routine; it’s comforting, it’s easy and it’s relaxing but I often find myself sitting in front of the TV for 2-3 hours each evening watching … [Read more...] about Challenge 1: What happened when I quit TV for a month?

Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page Kevin Cullen and Shelley Murphy Globe Staff October 30, 2018 James “Whitey” Bulger, one of America’s most manipulative criminals who eluded prosecution for decades because he was protected by corrupt FBI agents, was killed Tuesday in a federal prison in West Virginia shortly after he was transferred there. He was 89 and was serving two life sentences for 11 murders.His life played out like any number of the Hollywood movies it spawned, reflecting a Boston that is no more, when bookmakers and gangsters peopled the taverns of the city’s working-class neighborhoods; when the locals wouldn’t dream of turning in the neighborhood hoodlum; when gangland murders were commonplace; and when the FBI was so hellbent on taking out the Mafia that it helped gangsters like Mr. Bulger kill rivals and rise to the top of the Boston underworld.Mr. Bulger … [Read more...] about James J. ‘Whitey’ Bulger dead after long, murderous career

He’s not ready to say how refreshing it is to not be a music director. But he sounds remarkably relaxed, almost buoyant. He’s making silly jokes and dropping a pun here and there. Before we get too carried away, it’s important to note that Slatkin, who turned 74 last month, is not really what you would call retired. He stepped down as music director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra at the end of last season. He is now music director laureate and will conduct just eight programs over the course of five weeks of … [Read more...] about Refreshed Leonard Slatkin back with DSO after health scare
