A quick recap of the week

week review 2012-02-23

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

+ Daniel shared his favorite flavor of Stewart's ice cream.

+ We ran a fast break on some numbers after Siena was rumored to be up for inclusion in a new -- and very good -- basketball conference.

+ The era of holy-crap-will-I-have-a-media-job-tomorrow? continued.

+ Casey stopped in to taste some unpretentious beer at the unpretentious Butternuts brewery near Cooperstown.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: a remarkable yet neglected story, change, school-based comestibles masquerading as actual food, a zero-degree wind chill relay, OK - THICK ICE, summer in February, mac 'n cheese, the Confectionery, king cake, the last waddle of the porcupine, a gobbled gobbler, and a riddle.

+ We gave away tickets to New York in Bloom and brunch at City Beer Hall by asking: What are you looking forward to this spring in the Capital Region?

+ The closest most of us will ever come to an Oscar.

+ Two local guys have made a significant addition to the Craigslist Wedding Date Wanted canon.

+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: manscaping, an exceptional cough, honeybees, and a fossil rock.

+ Saratoga native Chris Millis spent three very productive days.

+ And Sujatha asked about finding a dosa maker for parties.

Thanks to everyone who posted a comment or shared an idea or photo this week!

Bruce Fence Company came through for me in a big way last spring. Another local fence company gave me a price and a date and then faded away. (Perhaps a bigger job came along, but have the decency to call.) Needless, to say this failure to keep the date as promised created frustration with the neighbor on the other side of the fence. From my first telephone contact with Bruce to my first visit in their office and then through to completion of the job, every interaction was friendly and professional. The entire transaction went like clockwork.
