What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: a flying fire truck, farm work, roudabouts, conservatism, Stewart's, TNO, secret gardens, tiny creatures, honey ham, bacon bourbon, gelato, truth in advertising, sheep, and a sprouting sneaker.

Chuck went to Eve of Destruction and took some awesome photos.

Drew says working at Kilpatrick Family Farm "taught me more than any Michael Pollan book every could." (Also, Drew is leaving -- we wish him the best on his new path.)

Kevin says local apprehension about roundabouts "comes largely from the fact that people in this area don't pay attention to what the Hell they're doing on the road."

Rob says "true conservatives" would support same-sex marriage.

Mr. Dave put together a gallery of Stewart's signage.

Jen took in the scene at Troy Night Out.

Jackie is so great at seeing all the little details in the forest, including tiny creatures.

The Bee Balm Gal went on the secret gardens tour in Saratoga.

Jerry, whose fame precedes him, called ahead to get the "insane" honey ham at Ala Shanghai.

Steve says the Bacon Old Fashioned at dp is "delicious."

Cap2Cap got her first basket of the season from Roxbury Farms.

Ashallann's weekend include Hoffman's Playland and gelato.

Paula came across truth in advertising on Lark Street.

Nick got FiOS -- and it was a saga.

The Idiots point out that America is fat because of Saratoga.

There was a note left for Matt at a pharmacy in Averill Park.

Albaniana visited a sheep farm in Hannacroix.

And Laura came across a sprouting sneaker.


As always, thanks Greg and Mary for the blog support!

Thanks as always, guys. AoA is just as "insane" as the honey ham, all in a good way, of course.
