Long weekend alert - It's Memorial Day! There's plenty of things to keep you occupied if you plan on being in town.  In addition to a number of Memorial Day Parades, the Military Heroes Garden of Flags on the Boston Common is a particularly moving tribute that is well worth checking out.   On this day, and every day, take a moment to remember those who protect our nation and the unique freedoms we enjoy.  To all who serve and have served - we thank you!
