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...

Amy on talking about mental illness: "There's no cause for shame in mental illness, no cause to feel isolated. We only think we're alone because we're so tight-lipped, so scared."

Ethan on things that matter to him -- and don't -- as a cyclist.

Mr. Dave on people who complain about people who complain about winter: "Stuff it people who say these sorts of things... Just go ahead and stuff it."

Nora, briefly, on choosing to leave Schenectady.

Rob is sick of hearing about Hudson.

Chuck created a fun dream window about the Madison Theater.

Jen went for a winter hike at Minnewaska State Park.

Albany Jane shared some scenes from a stay at Dippikill in Warrensburg.

Jackie spotted an otter trail.

The Bee Balm Gal set out some cake for cold-weary birds.

Steve shared a bunch of scenes from Wine & Dine for the Arts. More pics from Jerry. And Silvia had a few thoughts after the wine and dining.

Ashley said the chicken stole the show at The Sagamore.

The Fuj went on a Massachusetts beer trip.

Jerry took a pizza vacation.

Daniel was looking for input on a Disco Fries tour.

The Exiles enjoyed their visit to MiSci.

And if ever you wondered what would happen if you set a wet t-shirt out to dry in the winter, Albaniana has your answer.


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... ;)
