Otros aspectos destacables

ENCONTRAR todos los interruptores de luz. Puse en las luces empotradas del techo, luces empotradas sobre la cocina, debajo de las luces de la estantería en la cocina y el rincón de la oficina, bajo la luz de microondas, una araña y cascada de iluminación en los pozos de la ventana y la iluminación indirecta en las estanterías de libros. Hay dos lámparas uno en cada una de las dos mesas de noche. También no sabían cómo encender la tapa del cocinero - pero estoy siempre en mi iPhone - y que podría haber sido manejado con un mensaje "¿cómo se enciende la cooktop de vidrio" Y yo respondería con " 1. Ponga un dedo en el icono del ojo de la cerradura, 2. ponga otro dedo en el calor que usted desea para cada quemador uno a la vez 3. los iconos del quemador se refieren al lugar del quemador en la tapa del cocinero.

FIND all the light switches. I put in recessed ceiling lights, recessed lights over the kitchen, under shelf lights in the kitchen and office nook, under microwave light, a chandelier and cascade lighting in the window wells, and indirect lighting in the book shelves. There are two lamps one on each of the two bedside tables. Also they didn't know how to turn on the cook top -- but I'm always on my iPhone -- and that could have been handled with a message "how do you turn on the glass cooktop" And I would respond with "1. Put a finger on the keyhole icon, 2. put another finger on the heat you want for each burner one at a time. 3. the burner icons relate to the place of the burner on the cook top.

Airbnb House Rules…

This is a quiet house. Most of the guests are professionals, some working out of the house. No pets, no service animals and no smoking.

-- Call Ed at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) with requests or concerns. Or call Manny, the building manager at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)

-- The top four floors are hardwood. In consideration of other tenants in the building guests in the DUPLEX AND PENTHOUSE ARE ASKED TO wear soft-soled shoes, non-skid socks, or non-slip footwear. AND tenants and guests are asked to remember that voices carry and they are asked to be mindful of noise from footfall especially in traffic areas, foyers, laundry room, including hardwood stairs and spiral stairs. There is extensive sound proofing in the building. But footfall can be a problem so stocking or soft soles work best.

-- On another note… Voices, music, DVD's, CD's can be too loud. Please feel free to knock on the door of other guests if the volume of stereo equipment, LED's, etc is too loud. A well place word will solve a noise problem and keep everyone in the building happy and comfortable.

This was a great place in a very central location. Ed was very friendly and offered detailed instructions to get in to the place. We checked in pretty late around 11pm but that wasn't an issue as place (which was very secure) was accessible by number codes. The only thing that posed a slight difficulty checking in and out was that we came in with four large and heavy luggages; we had to go round the back of the apartment (about a 3-5min walk) to get in as it wouldn't fit the stairs; not a huge issue (and I only have myself to blame from too much shopping) as that's been stated before we arrived and on the listing before we booked. Ed was very kind to let us store these luggages for the day upon check out which saved us the hassle of dragging them around Boston the entire day before our flight at midnight. If we had more time, we would have made use of the kitchen and his large selection of DVDs and books! Thanks for everything Ed!

Love sharing the DVD library and my eclectic collection of books!! Enjoyed meeting you guys and the conversation was fun!! It's so easy to shop in Boston... especially from this house as it's 10 minutes from the high end and the everyday shops in Copley Place, Prudential Center, on Newbury and on Boylston!!

MY THOUGHTS on the BostonMarathon2013 tragedy It's just 8 short block from my house, 8 brief minutes north. I want to thank so many of you who wrote on April 15.

Although I'm usually at The Finish Line on Boylston St near Dartmouth, this year I was at Home Depot picking up the final materials and fixtures for finishing up Project 158.

And this Tuesday April 16 morning... I couldn't sleep, I woke, wrote, went back to bed, got up again, and wrote some more.

I'm writing from Boston's Historic South End, it's 4:45am birds are beginning to sing. Sirens can be heard in the distance now. I live eight brief minutes on foot from the Marathon's Finish Line. I'm still in shock. Very sad and very angry that this could happen. Especially in this city, one of the most peaceful and progressive in the country.... happen in front of our library, the first public library in the country during a "people's sporting event". We are a city with many "sport's palaces" but this event is for the every citizen. It's not dominated by high salaries and expensive admission. It's a free event here in a city that so often makes history and writes laws that have extended social justice, rights, and freedoms to so many of us. We were the first Common Wealth and our constitution was the model for The United States Constitution which has extended rights and freedoms to so many. A constitution whose rights and freedoms are too easily limited by cynical people who sow fear and hate.
Now it's 7:24 am.. more sirens, the trash truck is trashing out back, the helicopters are again in the air, the streets are empty. Last night walking home from Foodies with salad-to-go, the few who were out walked in silence, the restaurants were closed. I'm in tears. I’m looking at my cover photo singing with last March.

Our December 14 concert fades in. It was just after the senseless deaths of NewTown CT school children. Reuben, our director, introduced us singing Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah and I don't remember his exact words but they went something like... "Today people asked me how we could be singing at a time like this, and I said HOW COULD WE NOT BE SINGING, singing Hallelujah. Cohen's, Hallelujah, a song of praise. A song that has more than 100 verses." He went on. "A song that needs so many verses because Cohen's asking... ASKING how do I sing praise... how do I sing Hallelujah."

Reuben's words stopped and our singing began, and when our singing stopped Jordon Hall rose in a standing ovation. It's was a moment I'll never forget, a Dec 14 moment, a day I'll never forget. I don't remember Reuben's exact words, and yet, I can rebuild what he said as the thought and the moment will never leave me.

And now one day and four months later, in the middle of the month, on a day we celebrate our Patriot's, a holiday, a holy day, here in Massachusetts, in my city, my hometown, on the 17th century streets, streets I've walked countless times, there's more sudden senseless death.

This time let's not use this sacred time as an excuse to start wars-for-profit. Here in Massachusetts we have the will to change our sadness, our loss, out anger into a social movement. Let us begin, and let us begin by singing, singing Hallelujahs.
