Andere dingen waar je op moet letten

Vind alle lichtschakelaars. Ik zet inbouwverlichting, ingebouwde lichten over de keuken, onder planklampen in de keuken en kantoorhoek, onder magnetronlicht, een kroonluchter en cascadeverlichting in de raamputten, en indirecte verlichting in de boekenplanken. Op elk van de twee nachtkastjes zijn er twee lampen. Ze wisten ook niet hoe ik de kookplaat moest inschakelen, maar ik ben altijd op mijn iPhone - en dat zou kunnen worden behandeld met een bericht "hoe zet je de glazen kookplaat aan? En ik zou reageren met" 1. Steek een vinger op het sleutelgatpictogram, 2. Breng een andere vinger op de gewenste warmte voor elke brander een voor één. 3. De branderpictogrammen hebben betrekking op de plaats van de brander op de kookplaat.

FIND all the light switches. I put in recessed ceiling lights, recessed lights over the kitchen, under shelf lights in the kitchen and office nook, under microwave light, a chandelier and cascade lighting in the window wells, and indirect lighting in the book shelves. There are two lamps one on each of the two bedside tables. Also they didn't know how to turn on the cook top -- but I'm always on my iPhone -- and that could have been handled with a message "how do you turn on the glass cooktop" And I would respond with "1. Put a finger on the keyhole icon, 2. put another finger on the heat you want for each burner one at a time. 3. the burner icons relate to the place of the burner on the cook top.

Airbnb House Rules…

This is a quiet house. Most of the guests are professionals, some working out of the house. No pets, no service animals and no smoking.

-- Call Ed at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) with requests or concerns. Or call Manny, the building manager at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)

-- High speed WIFI is provided.

-- To accommodate guests with asthma, non-smokers, and recognizing that 158 W. Brookline is insured as a non-smoking building. Guests are not permitted to smoke in the building, on the decks, patio, stairs, or within 25 feet of any entrance of the building.

-- The top four floors are hardwood. In consideration of other tenants in the building guests in the DUPLEX AND PENTHOUSE ARE ASKED TO wear soft-soled shoes, non-skid socks, or non-slip footwear. AND tenants and guests are asked to remember that voices carry and they are asked to be mindful of noise from footfall especially in traffic areas, foyers, laundry room, including hardwood stairs and spiral stairs. There is extensive sound proofing in the building. But footfall can be a problem so stocking or soft soles work best. There is some sound proofing between the apartments and foyers on floors one and two. So the mailroom/foyers/and spiral stairs are Quiet Zones.

-- On another note… Voices, music, DVD's, CD's can be too loud. Please feel free to knock on the door of other guests if the volume of stereo equipment, LED's, etc is too loud. A well place word will solve a noise problem and keep everyone in the building happy and comfortable.

My wife and I were in town for a conference and spent 4 nights here. The place was perfect for us, such a vey neighborhood! We loved exploring the streets and visiting nearby restaurants. My wife was especially thrilled about a Vegan Ice Cream Shop right on the corner - not to mention a very good Thai and Pizza Place. Our host was warm and friendly and very helpful giving us tips on how to get the most out of our visit. The place was excellent with lots of interesting books and character. I do have to say that the spiral staircase is a bit narrow and difficult to navigate - so be forewarned. Overall great experience!

The home was clean, access was easy, and most importantly it was very quiet. (I travel for business.) I stay in quite a few airbnbs in the South End/Back Bay area, and this one has the best night's sleep! Loved cooking in the kitchen and relaxing on the back patio. Beautiful walkable neighborhood with lots of bars and restaurants around. Will stay here again!

Brandi, thanks for your good words and HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS! It is a QUIET HOUSE -- and our "no shoe" practice helps a lot as it prevents footfall on the polished oak floors from disturbing the guests below --- and it PER A STUDY IN CONSUMER REPORTS it keeps the house cleaner also!! That and our filtered air -- thanks to the Mitsubishi minisystem!!!

MY THOUGHTS on the BostonMarathon2013 tragedy It's just 8 short block from my house, 8 brief minutes north. I want to thank so many of you who wrote on April 15.

Although I'm usually at The Finish Line on Boylston St near Dartmouth, this year I was at Home Depot picking up the final materials and fixtures for finishing up Project 158.

And this Tuesday April 16 morning... I couldn't sleep, I woke, wrote, went back to bed, got up again, and wrote some more.

I'm writing from Boston's Historic South End, it's 4:45am birds are beginning to sing. Sirens can be heard in the distance now. I live eight brief minutes on foot from the Marathon's Finish Line. I'm still in shock. Very sad and very angry that this could happen. Especially in this city, one of the most peaceful and progressive in the country.... happen in front of our library, the first public library in the country during a "people's sporting event". We are a city with many "sport's palaces" but this event is for the every citizen. It's not dominated by high salaries and expensive admission. It's a free event here in a city that so often makes history and writes laws that have extended social justice, rights, and freedoms to so many of us. We were the first Common Wealth and our constitution was the model for The United States Constitution which has extended rights and freedoms to so many. A constitution whose rights and freedoms are too easily limited by cynical people who sow fear and hate.
Now it's 7:24 am.. more sirens, the trash truck is trashing out back, the helicopters are again in the air, the streets are empty. Last night walking home from Foodies with salad-to-go, the few who were out walked in silence, the restaurants were closed. I'm in tears. I’m looking at my cover photo singing with last March.

Our December 14 concert fades in. It was just after the senseless deaths of NewTown CT school children. Reuben, our director, introduced us singing Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah and I don't remember his exact words but they went something like... "Today people asked me how we could be singing at a time like this, and I said HOW COULD WE NOT BE SINGING, singing Hallelujah. Cohen's, Hallelujah, a song of praise. A song that has more than 100 verses." He went on. "A song that needs so many verses because Cohen's asking... ASKING how do I sing praise... how do I sing Hallelujah."

Reuben's words stopped and our singing began, and when our singing stopped Jordon Hall rose in a standing ovation. It's was a moment I'll never forget, a Dec 14 moment, a day I'll never forget. I don't remember Reuben's exact words, and yet, I can rebuild what he said as the thought and the moment will never leave me.

And now one day and four months later, in the middle of the month, on a day we celebrate our Patriot's, a holiday, a holy day, here in Massachusetts, in my city, my hometown, on the 17th century streets, streets I've walked countless times, there's more sudden senseless death.

This time let's not use this sacred time as an excuse to start wars-for-profit. Here in Massachusetts we have the will to change our sadness, our loss, out anger into a social movement. Let us begin, and let us begin by singing, singing Hallelujahs.
