I’m still en route home, after almost 24 hours (which allowed time for a meeting in London and, most important, a trip to Neal’s Yard for cheese and Monmouth Street for coffee beans). Checking mail at Grand Central–I admit it, I love Starbucks–I found an email about a new program: Shop Western Mass–Local Products from Western Massachusetts–Think Outside the Box Store!. Interesting to see this endeavor to get people to shop locally, all to the good. But I don’t see Great Barrington!
Home to western Massachusetts
