      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

Star Gazing

blog-0795980001383620178.jpgIn the past few years Massachusetts has captured the interest of Hollywood for their movie locations and I have to admit I couldn't he happier. I know, I know, I'm a geek but I love seeing celebrities and stars walking the streets on the North Shore. I love that they shop in our stores and eat in our restaurants. I am thrilled that they can enjoy the beautiful landscape of our little town of which we are so proud. They hire natives to work as extras and bring much needed revenue too. Not to mention how beautifully they portray New England on the big screen. While filming, some of the actors rent private homes here while others stay in hotels closer to Boston. Either way they bring a little glamor to the otherwise humble little town. We spot "them" all over, in our super markets and retail shops. When the Perfect Storm was being filmed George Clooney and other actors hung out with the locals at a little bar in the neighboring city. Among others this area has hosted Sandra Bullock, Ryan Renolds and Betty White (The Proposal). My favorites, Ellen DeGeneres, Tom Sellek and Kate Capshaw (The Love Letter) and Cher,Wynona Rider and Bob Hoskins.(Mermaids) The list goes on. "Clear History" with John Hamm, Kate Hudson and Larry David, Eva Mendes and Michael Keaton wrapped up a month or so ago and now the HBO series "Olive Kitteridge" starring Frances McDormand is here

So now Hollywood has transformed one our favorite restaurants into their set where much of the movie will be filmed. Yes, you can bet I will make my way there for a little star gazing!blogentry-174527-0-88440800-1383620774.j

Sounds great! Maybe, I'll move there! ;)

 

For greater privacy, though, you might want to remove the name of your town (even if that makes it harder for me to know where to move ;))
