The Towns of Hull (aka Nantasket Beach) and Scituate, MA
are of primary focus. Since "The Blizzard of '78" affected a large

For those of you who wondered "just what is MrMoose143". Lets break it down by the fine elements.

Mr. (mis'ter) pl. mister: used before the name or title of a man.

Moose (moos) n., pl. moose [<AmInd. (Algonquian), as in Massachusett moos, lit., eats of] 1. the largest animal (Acles americana) of the deer family, native to the northern United States and Canada: the male has huge palmate antlers and weighs up to 1,800 pounds. 2. same as ELK (sense 1).

143 for those who love Lighthouses, this is already known. 1- 4- 3 I Love You. Taken from Minot's Ledge Lighthouse in Cohasset, MA. 1- 4- 3 is the sequence that the light flashes. It is known as the lovers light house and can be easily seen from the shores of Hull, Cohasset, Scituate and Marshfield, MA.

Hence; I am a man Mr, my nick name has been Moose for many years (aka Bruce the Moose) and the 143, well guess I'm just a lovable kind of guy.
