Every lunchtime bike ride needs one of these trucks


Along the Charles River Bike Path in Boston, in the park in Brighton, are a couple of ice cream trucks. Not only do they have popsicles and ice cream sandwiches and drumsticks… They have soft-serve ice cream cones!

“Festive” is not a word you think of about Jersey barriers.


On the way home tonight, I saw this gentleman reworking a dozen Jerzey barriers into works of contemporary art.

He is Bret Weese, one of the artists selected by the City of Lowell’s Cultural Affairs and Special Events Office “Block Project” whose aim is to transform crowd safety concrete into festival-ready works of original art in preparation for the 2017 Lowell Folk Festival, July 28-30, 2017. Four other participating artists painted the giant concrete cubes in the background.
