I just do not have the time well I should not say that when my boss is not looking at me to see if I am doing my job. I like to review the ar- ticles that other columnist have written about. What did you think of Nicola Orichuia articles he has written about all the Bakery Stores in the North End.

Marian Dioguardi Presents La Dolce vita- The Sweet Life East Boston native Marian Dioguardi exhibited her contemporary oil paintings of Italy and "La Dolce Vita -- The Sweet Life" at Athan's European Bakery & Caf in Brookline, MA on Sunday, March 4, 2012. Curated by John Quatrale the exhibition of oil paintings uses her trademark bold and brilliant color schemes to present her vision of "La Dolce Vita." Her Italo-Ameri- can heritage from East Boston pervades her oil paintings as she presents simple Italian street scenes from the Island of Burano in the Venetian Lagoon alongside colorful and oversized ceramic plates, cups and saucers. Together they showcase a zest for life that is so in keeping with Italian culture, food and living. Artist Marian Dioguardi with husband "JB" John Borchard in front of Marian's art at the Opening Reception held in Athan's Bakery & Caf, Brookline, MA. East Boston Named One of "Best Places to Live" East Boston was named one of the "Best Places to Live" by Boston magazine "because it's an adventurous eater's paradise" in the March 2012 issue.

The magazine states, "Mayor Menino is certainly betting on East Boston, too, having recently announced plans for a series of infra- structure improvements to lure private developers to the harbor." According to the maga- zine, the median home price in East Boston is $227,500, a one year increase of 7%. This issue is on news- stands everywhere now.
