What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: New Year's Eve, reflections on the past year and the year to come, the manner in which the inhabitants celebrated, facing the slope, Sawteeth, Schoharie Creek Preserve, a "generous subsidy," mini hotdogs, figgy pudding, Panza's, sushi, ghost signs, the biggest applause, hygge, and the Grinch report.

Comments

Don't know if this is the right place to post this but I found a cat in the snow on Columbia St between Eagle and Chapel, Sunday afternoon Jan 5. She seemed cold and lost so I brought her home.

I think it's a she, about 6 months to a year old. She's mostly black with a lot of random tan coloring mixed around (have a picture). She's wearing a green flea collar and is very comfortable around me so I'm sure she's not a stray. Help me get her home!
