I want to start this first post of the year 2007 with the photo above. It is the city hall in my hometown of Waltham Ma just before they took the decorations down and put them away till next year. For anyone who may be interested in a bit of history. Waltham was Founded in 1636, incorporated into a town in 1738 and then into a city in 1884. Historically Waltham is probably best known as the home of the Waltham Watch Factory, a pioneer company of the Industrial Revolution. Today the city is the home to two major institutions of higher learning, Bentley College and Brandeis University. Also if you happen to be a basketball fan the Boston Celtics have their practice sessions at Brandeis University. For much more information about Waltham just click on the Title Hometown at the top of the page posting. This is a really good photo I got from a friend in a email It is a sunset from the north pole.
