Boston Marathon Street Banners are HERE!!!

For all my Boston Marathon people, this post if for you...check out what went up on the streets of Boston this past week...


 I like the banners this year. There are 8-10 different ones, each with the flag from the runner's home country. I always get so excited once I see these banners. Last year we had green leaves and even some shade for the race. This year I doubt we will be getting as early a spring as last year so expect to see ugly brown and bare trees(as you can see in the picture below). BOO! By the way, these pictures were taken around 2pm in the afternoon, looks like a depressing white backdrop...but no...that's just winter time in New England. (It's spring, I know)
This is Massachusetts Avenue in Boston, pretty close to where we live. 
Don't forget, if you need help or have a question about Boston or the race send us an email! See you all soon! ryan.couto@gmail.com

Thanks for the distinct tips contributed on this blog site.
I have realized that many insurers offer buyers generous special discounts if
they decide to insure several cars with them.
A significant quantity of households have several vehicles these days, specifically those with more aged teenage youngsters still living at
home, and the savings for policies may soon begin. So it pays
off to look for a good deal.
