What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: no cause for shame, things that don't matter, complaining about complaining, leaving, Hudson, Minnewaska, Dippikill, otters, a dream window, wine and dining, show-stealing chicken, Mass beer, pizza, disco fries, wet t-shirts...

Present company excluded.

Thanks for picking up my articles! The pressure is on to keep writing things worth reading.

I love me some Dippikill... it's been FAR too long since I've been there (maybe two years or more) :) Though, I think I'll wait a little while longer... ;)
