Tyson Beckford on Instagram

Tyson Beckford, hunk, handsomeA couple weeks ago I mentioned that I enjoy following model Max Emerson on Instagram.  Another model who is active on Instagram is Tyson Beckford.

I’ve admired Tyson since the early / mid 90s when he was a Ralph Lauren model, and at nearly 45 years old he looks as good as ever in my opinion.  If you are on Instagram, I’d like to make a plug for my account, @bosguyblog while suggesting you check out Tyson’s visually pleasing account @tysoncbeckford.

Boston: 5th worst rush hour gridlock in nation

2015 urban mobility scorecardAccording to the 2015 Urban Mobility Scorecard, travel delays due to traffic congestion caused drivers to waste more than 3 billion gallons of fuel, costing on average, $960 per commuter.  I was surprised to see DC leapfrog Los Angeles to claim the dubious honor of worst commute in America. According to the rankings, Boston commuters lose 64 hours each year; 5th worst traffic in the US.

Who has the worst gridlock? Below are the 10 worst average annual traffic delays per commuter in hours for urban areas with at least 3 million people.

Washington, DC – 82 hours
Los Angeles -80 hours
San Francisco – 78 hours
New York City – 74 hours
Boston – 64 hours
Seattle – 63 hours
Chicago – 61 hours
Houston – 61 hours
Dallas – Fort Worth – 53 hours
Atlanta – 52 hours
Detroit – 52 hours
Miami – 52 hours

I’m so happy to miss out on this headache. I’ve not driven to work since 1999 and if I can help it I’ll never go back to commuting by car ever again. How do  you get to work? Do you drive to work each day?

CopenhagenLast week Boston Magazine reported that a new low-cost air carrier from Europe will begin offering nonstop service in May 2016 to Oslo and Copenhagen with plans to add more destinations in the near future. The previously unknown carrier, Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA, will bring more competition to these markets and greater access to Eurpoe with more nonstop flights.

For those of you who may be tempted, Copenhagen Pride is August 11 -15, 2016. There is more info about gay life in Denmark and in particular Copenhagen here.

Oslo Pride dates have yet to be confirmed but their celebration was held in late June this year.  For more travel information about gay life in Oslo link here.
