What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: Thanksgiving, getting thanked, turkey trotting, far from perfect, multiple solicitations, a winter luxury vehicle, willing yourself to enjoy winter, fair trade, Fin, awesome^n, D&B, panino, a good neighborhood, the Pine Bush, Washington County, random shopping carts.

Chuck delivered meals on Thanksgiving, and ended up helping in another way, too.

On Thanksgiving eve, Silvia was thanked for something that was a small thing for her -- but meant a lot to someone else.

Lots of Turkey Trotting: Jen, Jona, Christine.

Stephanie on parenting: "I've come across a lot of mothers who are holier-than-thou at the surface, but dammit, if there's one thing I've learned as a new mom, it's that people, collectively, are far from perfect when it comes to kids."

Rob on online comment registration and "putting the cover back on the cesspool."

One of Kristi's readers asked about how to deal with the many repeated solicitations for donations at the mall.

Carl shared the backstory on the Albany sleigh, a winter luxury vehicle of times past.

Christine tried to will herself into enjoying winter.

Albaniana worked through another Fair Trade Fair in Bethlehem.

Ashley checked out the new Saratoga (Wilton) location of the fish shop Fin.

After a visit to the Seoul Korean Restaurant in Latham, Albany Jane formulated the equation: Dumplings + Soup + Chewy Rice Cakes = Awesome^n

Jerry indulged his urge to be a little kid at Dave & Buster's.

J+R tackled the Cajun Pork Belly & Crispy Prosciutto Panini at the Illium.

Mr. Dave has a good neighbor.
