The historic Market Basket protests

To veer completely off the subject of real estate, the ongoing saga at the Market Basket supermarket chain is really an amazing story, arguably the top local story now unfolding in Boston. The thousands of employees, who are not unionized, are literally bringing the company to its knees. They are doing it without union help. [...]



Remember: Memorial Day is about remembering

We want to wish BREB readers a very happy and relaxing Memorial Day weekend. May your first grilled hot dogs of the season be your finest grilled hot dogs of the season. But, obviously, remember: Memorial Day is also about remembering. We thought we’d point out this book that’s getting rave reviews about World War [...]



Mr. Nice Guy: Banker accused of swiping $40K from woman recovering from brain surgery

A family member noticed a problem in the bank records of a local woman recovering from brain surgery: There was a $40,000 “discrepancy.” And police strongly believe a former bank manager might have something to do with that “discrepancy.” File under: Reverse hold up



Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

With practically everyone emptying out of Boston for the three-day weekend, we’d thought we’d post our official Memorial Day greetings right now: Happy Memorial Day! File under: God bless all our veterans and those currently serving in our armed services



‘Farewell, Fung Wah’

The most emailed item over at WBUR today is this story about the above video, an ode to the now departed Fung Wah bus line, sung to altered lyrics from Bob Dylan’s “Farewell Angelina.” It’s a hilariously stupid video. File under: Sniff, sniff … farewell, Fung Wah, farewell



The signs your financial advisor is a psychopath

How can you not dive into a story like this one, which over at RealClearMarkets headlined it: ‘The signs your financial advisor’s a psychopath.’ Anyway, here are some of the signs your financial advisor, most certainly not your real estate agent, may be a psychopath: 1. Egocentricity 2. Grandiosity 3. Lying and deceptiveness 4. Manipulativeness [...]



Big snow storm coming: French Toast Alert System set at ‘Severe’

Universal Hub’s Adam Gaffin has activated his French Toast Alert System to its highest level this year, “Severe,” the equivalent of DEFCON 1, due to forecasts the area could get up to 18 inches or more of snow this Friday and Saturday. You’ve been warned. Fyi: Adam’s definition of “severe”: Nor’easter predicted. This is it, [...]



Rex Trailer, RIP

It’s sad day for anyone who was a kid in Boston from the late 1950s through the early 1970s: Rex Trailer has died. Here’s his official fan site and another site for Boomtown Memories. File under: Hoof beats, hoof beats, hoof beats …



Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Remember: It’s a day for giving thanks with family and friends, not being swamped by media and retail types telling you it’s really about something else, i.e. an extension of holiday shopping. Good for the people of Plymouth. File under: Happy Thanksgiving



A capital idea: Congressional ‘pay for performance’ incentives

Sheila Bair, the former head of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, has a great post-election idea for President Obama and Congress: National politicians should be subjected to “pay for performance” incentives. Though it will never happen, it’d work like this: The president and Congressmen would each get half their pay in cash, the other half [...]
