Merry Christmas!

Hard to believe that tomorrow is Christmas Eve. Seems like only yesterday when I was complaining about Christmas and Halloween decorations on opposite sides of the isle. Now… wow, the time sure flew.

To Everyone: May you have a wonderful holiday season filled with love and good cheer.

Blessings to you and yours,

Update On My Old Post - Writing Forums dot com Is (Not) Down

Of course Writing Forums dot com (www.writingforums.com) is not down. She changed servers several months ago and is up, stronger, and better than ever. In fact, Writing Forums dot com is (IMO) one of the best writing sites/forums on the internet, bar none.

So if you're a writer or poet and are looking for a quality forum where you can Workshop (protect your first rights) and get critiques and help on your work from the burgeoning to the professional, as well as discuss writing and find info on publishing, then look no further than Writing Forums dot com (www.writingforums.com). I highly recommend it.

Writing Forums .com - Writing Forums, Workshops and Help for Writers

“Writing is a solo, lonely act.”

That’s so true… or at least the actual writing part is. But with the invention of the internet and writing forums, writers don’t have to feel so alone anymore.

If you’re looking for an excellent writing forum, might I suggest Writingforums.com (Writing Forums, Workshops and Help for Writers—Writing Forums.

Unlike many forums out there, WF.com has been around for years (since 23-Sep-2002), and, like its home page says, is one of the fastest growing writing communities (and I do mean communities in the best sense of the word) on the web. By joining their free community you will be able to talk with other writers, get feedback on your work to improve your writing skills, discuss ideas, share tips & tricks, network and make friends!

Check out the impressive numbers as of this moment. Threads: 77,355, Posts: 948,010, Members: 29,798

If reading original works from the up-and-coming to the professional is what you're after, then WF.com (www.writingforums.com) is the place to find them. If you’re a writer or poet and a Writers’ Workshop or Poets’ Workshop to protect your first rights while improving your work is your focus, then you’ll find them there, too. They also have writing and poetry discussions, challenges galore, and enough forums to satisfy every taste (aside from Fanfiction, of course). There is even the hot Debate and the much calmer Lounge sections, where one can either go head to head with the best debaters around, or unwind and talk about your day or poignant topics. And let's not forget the Writing/Publishing Advice, and so much more.

And since registration is fast, simple and absolutely free, that only leaves one question: What are you waiting for? Go to Writing Forums and join the community today! And tell 'em Hawke sent you. :)

Help with Boston History - 1930's-40's

Photo Courtesy of the "Internet"

News photo, dated on back Jan 8 1934. Shown: Lt Martin W Joyce, Mass State Police; Lt Wm M Donahue and Supt Martin King, Boston Police Dept.

Hey all,

I’m looking for information on Boston history, 1930’s - 1940’s, specifically about the following:

Mike Rocco (or Roco) Lived with his wife and family on Thurston Street - Boston
Louie Rocco (or Roco) - Mike’s brother
The Monte - nightclub/restaurant in Boston
Jimmy (or Jim or James) Diorio (or Di Orio) - owner of The Monte
The Pompeii - nightclub/restaurant - Boston
Katie Leonardi

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
