Still open, just quiet.

Curious what happened in the Boston area today.
The same right-wingys from a weekend earlier this year,
which attracted counter-protesters in their tens of thousands,
decided to give Boston another try.

Their request for permission was refused, the radio soundbite said;
they planned to show up anyhow.
But they had made their intentions known with the earlier request.

According to the radio announcer soundbite:
the right-wingys did their thing and left.
A modest number of counter-protesters attended.
And all were outnumbered by public enforcement officials, everywhere and all over the place.
Peaceful . . .
. . . doesn't mean what it used to?

So how has everyone's week been? We are not in an area where "trick or treat" folk knock at the door, but is still fairly prominent. Daughter is involved in a costume hire place and over 400 were rented out at the weekend. Apparently this is their busiest season - Halloween, then Children in Need, then Christmas. This is what she came up with - no prosthetics, just face paint!. I expect that is 'public' but let me know if it isn't.

Tonight we have a few friends and neighbours round for a fireworks and food. Whether she will turn up in costume is to be determined ...

My comment wasn't about multiple theatres, but about the fact that there are multiple "Carroll County"s. (at least 3, Maryland, Georgia & Virginia)
This was in response to comments about repeated use of town/city names in US.

Hyperbole aside, I have a fond enough memory of an evening of music in Mountain View. At that time the weekly (Saturday night?) gathering was in the court house. Jimmy Driftwood lived nearby and often MC'd.

Mountain View, Arkansas s was one of the best places I visited. Being in a 'dry county' the provision and carrying of alcohol was illegal but I did notice that every now and again one of the banjo pickers would saunter off to his car and spend 2 minutes with his head in the boot :-)

Bought a T-shirt there that said it was the folk music capital of the world. I am sure there are some who would dispute that...

Plus, there are a good handful of town names that occur more than once within the same state , which can lead to really inconvenient confusion; U.S. people have no custom of referring to towns or cities by county, and would have no idea what county a town was in without researching.

Further rumination on Akhenaton's comment.

There is one practical reason for
US natives to insist on linking town names
"to the state concerned."

There are city/town names that are common enough
literally to have one such in every one of the lower 48 states on the continent.

One has to differentiate between the towns by specific mention of the state concerned.

"Springfield" is a classic case,
almost every state has got a town, if not a city, named "Springfield."
And so many others:

Bowling Green.
Woodville.
Lafayette.

I'm too lazy to recall the rest.

I felt sure it was "The History of Mr Polly"on which one character is commenting on a delivery van of his friend which has his company name and an Oak tree as a logo and the slogan "Branches everywhere". When our hero points out his friend only has one fairly small shop, he defends the slogan "But oak trees do have branches everywhere

There's Paris Street bus station in Exeter and the London Inn just up the road in Kilkhampton.

I once went into the gents at aforementioned bus station for a wee. A man in one of the cubicles inadvertently let out a very loud, ripe, wet fart, and immediately started to hum a tune very loudly, the first note of which was represented by the fart, which he managed to get the rest of the melody fully in tune with. Knowing that he would eventually emerge from the cubicle and have to confront witnesses to his raucous air-biscuit launch, his clear aim was to make us think that he hadn't farted at all. Had the floor in the bogs not been so disgusting, I'd have rolled on it laughing me 'arris off. Incidentally, why ARE gents' toilet floors always wet like that? Yeuurgh...

Here in the UK we have to hang a qualifier on towns and villages.

You try asking Yell.com or BT telephone enquiries for Stonehouse or even Stroud, such databases are so precise - you have to be.
There are at least 23 Newports and not all of them have marinas or docks!

And it should not be a surprise that there are a humungous number of Newtowns.

Not one Memphis, and only 2 Paris's and they are a farm or a Hall.

Visiting Phoenix, Arizona, again.

I don't know what kind of bird this is here.
It looks like a jay of some kind. Entirely dark.
The funny jay gait.
And you should hear it calling!
It's the kind of sound that makes you straighten up and look around.

High, piercingly clear, really a whistle.
And the jays, when they talk at each other (they are often in groups),
have all different pitches and notes that each whistles,
and some of them have little ornaments, grace notes, sliding from one note to the next.

The funniest thing I ever hear from these jays
is the sunset, the crepuscular soundoff.

For this one, they all clump together in the branches of trees
(one tree, if it's big enough for the whole group)
and deep behind its green leaves,
they all whistle at once.
I mean, it is the darndest sound.
They sound like they're all high on the same drug.

I made a really good fish pie for fussy buggers at the weekend. Even Mother loved it. No prawns, no salmon (the usual hatred-inspirers), just smoked haddock and unsmoked cod. With hard-boiled eggs of course. I also made an Elizabeth David beef daube. You can get the really easy recipe from the Guardian if you google "Guardian daube Elizabeth David" (no shit, Sherlock). It's a winner as long as you stick to the top rump she specifies. I bought a big piece from Sainsbury's and cut it to size myself. I used pork rinds that I'd trimmed off some pork chops and kept in the freezer, but I left them whole and just fished them out at the end. I just used some streaky bacon slices cut up small instead of the chunks she specifies.
