No one likes local newspaper stories more than EphBlog.

ENGAGED: Bob and Ann Blanding of Teele Road announce the engagement of their son Michael Blanding to Alexandra Hall, whose parents live in Hingham. Michael is a graduate of Nashoba Regional High School and Williams College with a bachelor of arts in English. He is currently a senior writer with Boston Magazine.

Alexandra, who was born in Boston and grew up in Duxbury, studied English literature and religion at Wheaton College and later received a culinary degree from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, France. She also works at Boston Magazine as a lifestyle and food editor. A fall wedding is planned.

Blanding has a nifty personal website here. Now, if he just had a blog, he would be the very model of a modern, major Eph writer.

Here is an article by Blanding and his fiance together. Any couple that can write together must be well-matched. My lovely wife and I can barely get out the Christmas cards together!

I think that this is a picture of Michael and Alexandra.


Blanding’s article on possible protests at the upcoming DNC is interesting. As a resident of greater Boston, I am hoping for maximal protest activity with minimal traffic snarling. A forlorn dream, I know.
