What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: Ragnar, love and hate, suggestions, a Troy neighborhood, gorgeous days, the Adirondacks, monarchs, chicken parm, Round Lake, sandwiches, apples, Wegmans, an outgoing person, a waterwheel, faster than a walk, an hour's difference, the solar system.
