What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: wake up calls, supermarket annoyances, a $5 bottle of wine, brunch and recycled toilet paper.


One more reason why we're glad Rob is fighting fires and not us. (The others: training, competency, high probability of badassness.)

People at Kristi's blog shared their supermarket pet peeves.

A shop owner pointed Celina in the direction of a good $5 bottle of wine.

Naomi finally broke down and just threw a bunch of stuff out.

And from Leigh's Mori(Bus) Philosophorum: the Urban Adventurer and, um, recycled toilet paper.

Tweets of the week

From @Siobhank524: "Am eating plate of tortilla straws, bacon bits and ranch dressing. God love the 'salad' bar."
