What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: dogs and chickens, being old and stodgy, amphibian patrol, Montreal, Williamstown, the Dinosaur, frozen yogurt, piss beer, local ham, the kosher Chopper, rhubarb, and the ghosts of pitchers and Shakers.

Ashallann dragged her family to Clifton Park for frozen yogurt at 16 Handles.

Mr. Dave continued his tour of the Piss Beers of Upstate New York.

Drew, now eating meat like a beer snob chooses beer, ate some local ham.

Leah the Nosher says the kosher Chopper had a Christmas shopping season-like feel ahead of Passover.

Steve posted photos from of the Canstruction sculptures at the State Museum.

The Exiles saw where Montezuma relaxes after he's had his revenge.

Chuck mourned the impending closure of Stuyvesant Photo.

Paula gazed into a face at the Capitol.

Rochelle's rhubarb is coming up.

And Rob visited what was once Heritage Park.

My daughter just started private swim lessons at Ciccotti Center in Colonie. She has only been to two but so far she loves it. They also seem to be flexible with scheduling for the private lessons - doesn't need to be at a set day and time each week.
