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.

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... ;)

This is potentially good news for St. Josephs. I walk around it 2 or 3 times a week and the last few years the deterioration has seemed to accelerate. She will be looking right at it everyday from her front windows.
