Five Things to Start Your Day: Jan. 4

A few facts, figures and tidbits to end your workweek.


Friday: Clouds & sun. Milder with highs in the upper 30s. A westerly breeze will *mask* some of that mild feel to the air though. West wind 7-17mph.

Saturday: Fantastic winter day with mostly sunny skies. Mid 30s.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy with a passing flurry. Upper 30s.

2. BREAD & SPIRIT: Come for a free supper at 5:30pm, and then enjoy an informal, interactive service at 6 pm while you sip your coffee or tea. Music might be contemporary, folk or traditional with an edge, all led by the church band. Join us for this easy-going night of good food, community and spiritual reflection — at South Acton Congregational Church, 35 School Street, Acton. The supper and the service are for kids, teens, adults, families, single folks… everyone! Bread & Spirit will be every first Sunday of the month. Visit www.southactoncc.org for details.

4. WHAT TO CELEBRATE TODAY: Today is trivia day. Whether the roots of Trivia Day are deep ... or whether this day was established by the Ecard dot coms is irrelevant. Trivia day is a fun day. It is an opportunity for us to share those many little trinkets of knowledge. It doesn't matter how big or how trivial. Dazzle your friends and family with generous portions of trivia today.
