A quick recap of the week

week review 2012-11-03

Here are a few highlights from the past week on AOA:

+ The Capital Region was lucky -- Sandy just brushed by it. In fact, this area was in the "dry" part of the storm.

+ James waited on the arrival of Abe Lincoln's ghost at the Rensselaer train station.

+ Daniel says you should try the beef noodle soup at Taiwan Noodle.

+ Katie asked about a good place to buy a used car.

+ Casey shared the backstory on the Soldiers and Sailors Monument -- you know, the white stone monument in Washington Park near Henry Johnson.

+ We gave away tickets to see John Oliver at the Egg by asking: What's your favorite Britishism? The answers were really fun.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: Williamstown, water, Halloweens past, pumpkins, costumes, Big Slide, home inspectors, maps, knocked down, Stewart's pizza, cupcakes, Mezze, the Triangle, Ghostbusters.

+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: the search for Mrs. Robinson, a fairy godmother, the old woodshed, and sleds.

+ VA asked about where people in the post-college crowd go dancing -- or, as she said, "I just wanna shake it!"

+ A company in Troy developed a William Shatner iPhone app.

+ Samantha asked about finding recreational hockey leagues -- or just some pickup games. (We're still looking for a few more answers on this one.)

+ And apparently there's a pet fox on the loose in Troy.

ALWAYS ask if it's ok to approach a dog. There are kids in our neighborhood who walk right up to dogs they don't know without asking. My shepherd is great about it, she loves everyone...my 'other' dog is sometimes great but gets easily overwhelmed. I try to explain it, but it should come from parents...
