Check out the new Grafton site!

I innocently clicked over to the official town of Grafton website, as I’m wont to do several times on Mondays and immediately was taken aback. This morning, the website was the ugly but serviceable site that we all know and tolerate. This afternoon, it’s… beautiful! There are rotating photos of Grafton scenes! A background in…

More self-promotion

Greater Grafton is proud to be a featured blog at Boston.com. I hadn’t even realized they listed local blogs until it was pointed out to me. Also, stats junkie that I am, I freaked out when I returned home after being out all morning to discover that absolutely no one appeared to be reading my…

Greater Grafton now on Facebook

Remember a few months back when I gleefully mocked a candidate’s press release about his creation of a Facebook page? Oh, I still find the tone of the release, and the straightforward Grafton News re-printing of it, amusing. But today, I’m going to make a little room for Facebook mocking of myself. Last night, my…

Grafton on Facebook

Have you noticed the Boston Globe recently discovered Facebook? Friday, they had an article about how the website is spoiling the high school reunion (because now it’s impossible to lose touch with former classmates) and today, the magazine had a story about how sometimes, people may friend you on Facebook, but (gasp) they may not…

Grafton’s mushroom man

Did you catch the story in the Globe this morning about mushroom hunters? The photo on the front was of a Grafton guy, Vladimir Gubenko “a self-proclaimed amateur mycologist,” and it’s worth checking out the online version just to see the video, which was shot right here in Grafton. I have a soft spot for…

Cape Cod bound

We’re headed for the Cape first thing in the morning to drop the kids with my parents for the week, so I probably won’t be checking the blog until Tuesday. In the meantime, it’s not Grafton, but check out this fascinating story in the Sunday New York Times Magazine about Internet trolls.

Wesley is auf!

Final post about Project Runway, just to cope with all the Project Runway traffic the blog is inexplicably getting: my colleague interviewed Wesley Nault yesterday — that brown dress was inexcusable and, yes, the romance rumors are true — so check it out here. And here, have a bonus link. And now, back to all-Grafton,…

Update on Blackstone guy

I’m NOT going to make this all about Project Runway, all the time. But a fair number of people visited yesterday and today looking for information about Wesley Nault, the designer from Blackstone, so here’s an interview a colleague did after he watched the first episode. He talks a bit about the all-yellow dress he…

Joss Whedon! This week only!

Joss Whedon has absolutely nothing to do with Grafton, but he’s the guy behind “Buffy, the Vampire Slayer” and, therefore, can do no wrong. Anyway, click the banner, this week only — he has a 3-part Web-only short series streaming online. Part I went up earlier this week, Part II today and the final chapter…
