Here are a few highlights from the past holiday week on AOA:
+ The Soapbox returned, with Elisabeth talking about the benefits of living in a small house.
+ A LEGO creation at MASS MoCA made us smile.
+ This driver made a strong case for this week's Oops Award.
+ Casey talked with some of the shops in the Capital Region that are still selling vinyl records.
+ We got the backstory on a new locally-made lip balm.
+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: vacation, summer to-do, the UAlbany president search, the Giants, Druthers, The Track, Comfort Kitchen, a food truck, cucumber soup, eggs, lump charcoal, feeling free to be stricken ill, "Americans," used cars, old school, Shakespeare, photography, and a remembrance.
+ We checked out the new Trader Joe's on Wolf Road ahead of its opening.
+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: the perfect accent, lying about lamps, oboe theft, and a stuffed squirrel.
+ Chrissy asked for creative birthday celebration ideas that didn't involve the birthday tour de alcohol.
+ And Casey learned about the power of the Albany carillon.

Thanks to everyone who posted a comment or shared a photo or idea this week!
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
