Snow days galore that affected local business including many of our participants.  Public transportation, traffic and parking are all major inconveniences right now.  This winter is one for the history books.
The days are staying lighter a little longer and we all hope for winter’s end to come sooner rather than later.  With spring comes the 16th Annual Boston Bakes for Breast …

Labor Day

The first Monday in September is Labor Day and is dedicated to the American workers!  Something which we should be celebrating daily for the difference they make in our lives! We celebrate them today and thank them for all they do for us.
The first Labor Day was celebrated in New York City in 1882 but that is not when it became a national holiday! Who created the holiday might be unclear but it is something we celebrate proudly every year.
When Labor Day rolls around, it always marks the unofficial end of summer which flies by once Memorial Day comes and …

Boston Bakes is Number 1 in 2011!

Out of the blue on December 10, 2012 I received a call from a reporter at the Boston Herald who was writing an article in regard to charitable organizations and how much they gave to the cause they were raising money for.  She called to interview me because we gave much of what we received from our event to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston to be used for breast cancer research.
I was interviewed over the phone and then was caught by surprise when she said we would like to have a photographer come over now and take your picture!   I …
