February COA Discussion Group: The Supreme Court and Reproductive Rights

There are a number of Weston Titan families–if you don’t know who they are, well, you may be in luck in the future as I have beseeched the Danforth siblings to do a series of profiles in the Owl. While waiting for our attorneys to hammer out the final details (no, not really), here’s your chance to meet Nick Danforth,

Do the Waltham Mountains Keep Us Safe from Framingham? Discuss

A friend of mine sent me a hilarious article from Boston.com this morning. The screenshots of social media humor made my entire morning, even with my own struggles with the keyboard-from-hell. There is a time and place for paying attention to social media, and that is right now. The beginning of the article sets up the situation: “The Last of

And talented teachers, if I forgot to mention that, which I did

History Corner: A Murderer and a Front Yard Dead Horse. Just Another Day in Weston

As the Owl has mentioned, it is worth joining Facebook or perusing Instagram (you can see posts without joining) just for the new Historical Society posts. Instead of heading out to buy a new double oven (the last of the kitchen appliances to die in the last two years), I started catching up on a couple of missed days of

Video Valentines are Back at the Weston Media Center – Book Now

Three years ago, our wonderful Weston Media Center (located on the lower level of the Art & Innovation Center) recorded video valentines for residents who wanted to surprise and delight their loved ones, their favorite public employees or volunteers or whoever deserved a smile on Valentine’s Day. Video valentines are back this year and I can hardly wait for the
