Tenth Annual Dance for World Community, Part 2

Celebrate the diverse dance traditions in Cambridge.

There is a long tradition of a family dance in Cambridge. You will learn about the ancient history of dance when you study with Boston Lykeion Ellinidon, a greek dance group. Circle dances are the world's oldest form of dance.

Samba Viva brings the party spirit straight from Brazil, featuring traditional folk and carnival dances.

Summer Solstice Delights

Green space in Cambridge is a perfect place to celebrate the longest day of the year.

June 21 is the Summer Solstice; the longest day of the year. And what better way to celebrate than strolling through some green space here in our fair city?

I took a long, slow walk around one of the places in my neighborhood of North Cambridge to enjoy the abundance of ponds, trees, flowers, and tall grasses.

Leavitt & Peirce

If These Walls Could Talk

Leavitt & Peirce may just be the oldest small business in Cambridge. Located in its original location since 1883, this tobacco and cigar shop has withstood the whims of time, while accruing the historical content of Harvard Square’s distinguished past.

Mosquitos!!! Bzzzzzzing...stingggg.....SMACK!

Mosquito Bite and Population Control for Comfort and Health

Oh, how the warm spring weather lures us into the great outdoors! We are drawn to the woods, to the aromatic blooming [bzzzzsssning, smack! Sorry for the interruption] of the deep outdoors, or to the evening hanging out on a porch [bzzzzzing – smack! Sorry, again! For the interruption!] with friends. So warm…so peaceful! So greatly free of winter’s constrictions and burdens. So comforted by the long, long days. So…so…beset.

Berkshire Fire

A Pink Dora the Explore Jacket & Lime Green Adidas Cleats

That is what two strangers gave to the barefoot mother and jacket-less child who ran out into the cold December day, when Berkshire Street erupted and then became engulfed in billowing flames.

When a Bird Flies into (Enters) Your House

How to Get Them Out (Instructions that Work)

Photo of small bird in flight.

This can happen anywhere there are houses and birds. This story is about what to do when a bird flies into your house or apartment in Cambridge. Which can happen to anyone. Here, in Cambridge, measuring just about seven square miles, with so much wildlife, so many birds, especially at this time of year. There are also so many bird nests (where many birds live), you probably live within fifteen feet of a bird nest nestled into some eaves or foyer and you don’t even know it.
