Sturbridge Times Magazine is out, Shameless Self Promotion-December edition

Ah, beautiful, tropical December in New England. So far, so good. Okay, so sunbathing is not happening, but it has not been unpleasant. Let's hope winter ended with that not yet forgotten snowstorm.

With the lovely weather, the Sturbridge Times Magazine is out and I have some pieces to shamelessly self-promote.

On Page 10 is my review of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. Jobs would never have been able to say, "No more Mr. Nice Guy," but there was more to his personality than his jerkness. Isaacson's bio is fair and though somewhat favorable, does make plain the man's faults.

Sometimes you stumble upon something that is wonderful, but completely unexpected. The Cafe at Five Loaves Bakery in Spencer is one of those. Read my review on Page 15.

My column is on Page 20. Some of you are under the impression that what we suffered in our week long loss of power was just a weather event. Hah, it was the First Annual Sturbridge and Environs Test of Post-Apocalyptic fitness. We flunked.

There are many other writers with articles in the Sturbridge Magazine, so look for it on a newstand. If you don't find one, you can download a pdf at http://sturbridgetimes.com.
