What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: ShopRite ShopRite ShopRite ShopRite, the trail of the sun, a place for active people, no-smoking designations, Pillar Rock, baby animals, a love letter to DeFazio's, Burger Centric, wings in Clifton Park, a knife, treasures in the attic, violet season, and the reason for getting into a boxing ring.

Comments

If it hadn't been for Greg sending me that picture in the first place, I might never have tried that sun trails photo. So much thanks all around to AOA!

Thank you for the link to that baby animal post. Rumor was they had cows, pigs AND sheep and I was hoping to get out there. Glad I can read a first-person account.
