What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: face ripping, prayer, Roy McDonald, the hall of fame, Mountain Jam, Oakwood Cemetery, drooling over abs, a trail run, pork, the first CSA box, trust, beer, meat markets, eggs, Schoharie County, rock climbing, a rescued duckling, and garbage.
