Hi blog!

Just wanted to let you know I haven’t abandoned you. I’ve been pretty busy the last week with work, visiting my parents, etc. Anyway, I’m off to Vermont today but I’m sure I’ll have pictures/entries to post when I get back.

I do have a minute, however, so I will just a note  a few observations I’ve made over the last week:

  • The political ads being shown on Syracuse (NY) television are quite hostile.
  • Refrigerated chicken sandwiches from rest stop mini marts aren’t good.
  • Babies sleep through anything (I guess they don’t need rapid eye movement sleep like we do).
  • Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Cunningham is a great interviewee (heard him on the radio).
  • The Syracuse newspaper has become very locally focused.
  • You can get a great meal at the Little Falls (NY) Veterans of Foreign Wars post (the squash soup, salad, roast beef, mashed potatoes, carrots with cauliflower and broccoli, cherry cake, coffee and wine were to die for!).
  • Some people never age (what’s their secret??).
  • The Olive Garden’s bottomless salad doesn’t taste quite as good as it used to.
  • The Manlius Art Cinema (independent movie theater in Manlius, NY) may have uncomfortable seats but the hospitality is second-to-none.
  • Opening an old box of photos, letters and knickknacks can be quite an emotional experience.
  • One of the best places to shop for household items is the LaFayette Apple Festival (in LaFayette, NY).
  • Homemade apple donuts are fabulous.
  • Some people I saw at church 15 years ago still stand in the same pew.
  • You can rent a large four-bedroom house in East Rochester (NY) for $1,800 a month.
  • You can rent a charming two-bedroom apartment overlooking the beauteous Cazenovia (NY) landscape for $800 a month.
  • New York State is still talking a lot about government “consolidation.”
  • The Shoppingtown Mall (DeWitt, NY) still has a lot of jewelry stores.
  • Those Chilean miners looked awesome coming out of that mine (I’m sure many other people noticed this, too).

  1. Not all diamond jewelry stores are the same so check reviews first before buying on a jewelry store;.`
