I hear that Mayor Angel Tavares has designated a new neighborhood:
Cheeseville
Its a little pocket of gentrification between Olneyville and the Jewelry District. Rents are skyrocketing and all the hipsters want to live there. I have even heard that a certain bakery mogul is cruising the area looking for a new location before the competition gets there!

I remember that red brick pharmacy behind you being built, the old one torn down was more of a soda fountain.

Used to be neighborhood Brick-Oven Bakeries in garages every couple of streets, fruit peddlers driving up and down the streets daily and one or two neighborhood Deli\Butcher shops.

No Wal-marts or Malls..............OH Lord, I sound like my GrandFather!!

One of my favorite pictures of 2013 because it reminds me of all the ones I didn't get on this particular bit of trail. My boy is a good guy.

This is a loaded '89 Honda Transalp on our two week camping trip in beautiful, trying, rainy, Québécois-infested Vermont. I see this picture and just fall in love with cheesebot all over again.

Aw shucks, you guys are too kind.

In answer to your request:



Now I just need to build a workbench along the back wall, bring over about ten more bikes, my tools and beer fridge and DECORATE (any and all donations are welcome).

Favorite pic of the year?



I can't find any pics of Al's Gouda...
