A bunch of friends have told me that they really enjoyed the post below in which I evoke the old license plate game that we would play as our parents drove us on long trips. The object was to identify as many states as possible. (OK, I admit that I have weird and/or nostalgic friends.)
Here's the local variant, for those of you who live in this state. This the Massachusetts city-and-town license plate game. We are going to see how many cities and towns in the Commonwealth are represented by those of you viewing this blog. This could take some time, as there are 351 municipalities.
I'll start off the list with names I have recently seen. I will add those I see on StatCounter during the coming days. You can add to the list by submitting a comment with the city or town from which you are visiting. Here goes:
Amherst, Andover, Arlington, Ashland, Barnstable, Belchertown, Bellingham, Belmont, Beverly, Billerica, Blandford, Boston, Boxford, Braintree, Bridgewater, Brockton, Brookline, Burlington, Cambridge, Canton, Chatham, Chelmsford, Chelsea, Concord, Dracut, Dudley, Eastham, Edgartown, Everett, Fall River, Falmouth, Framingham, Franklin, Harvard, Holyoke, Hopkinton, Hudson, Ipswich, Lawrence, Lexington, Lowell, Lynn, Malden, Mansfield, Marblehead, Marshfield, Maynard, Medford, Melrose, Methuen, Middleboro, Milford, Millis, Milton, Natick, Needham, New Bedford, Newburyport, Newton, Norfolk, North Andover, North Adams, Northbridge, North Dartmouth, North Reading, Norton, Norwell, Norwood, Peabody, Plymouth, Provincetown, Quincy, Randolph, Reading, Revere, Rockland, Salem, Sandwich, Saugus, Sharon, Sherborn, Somerville, South Hadley, Springfield, Stoughton, Southwick, Swampscott, Taunton, Topsfield, Truro, Walpole, Waltham, Watertown, Webster, Wellfleet, Wellesley, Westminster, Weston, Westfield, West Springfield, Weymouth, Whately, Williamstown, Wilmington, Winchester, Woburn, Worcester, Wrentham.
