This summer at a farmer’s market a couple hundred miles away, the sea salt lady repping Mermaid Farm in Tisbury Massachusetts was also selling some real cool stone plates–the type you might find as a cheese platter, at a restaurant, say, like moonstones. They were really sharp. I asked her if she crafted them to which she explained, that the stone is actually sourced from her farm, but crafted by a dude in…Lowell Massachusetts!

Last night, still stuffed aptly like a thanksgiving turkey, I caught up on the HBO series, The Leftovers. As a doomed character pleaded for her life, she claimed to be someone other than the intended victim; ”I am not Patty! I am from Lowell Massachusetts!”
Even in Hollywood, Lowell continues to get shout-outs!
