Leg up

Because it's Friday at 4:30 pm: here are 12 seconds of a baby goat trying to climb up onto a couch at a recent Modern Farmer photo shoot. The kid is from Skipping Goat Farm in Westerlo.

Modern Farmer is a new publication based in Hudson. It's releasing its first issue in April.

Nap time.

For no other reason than... CUDDLING DUCKLINGS!

It was a warm afternoon at Buckingham Pond in Albany, and the ducklings were very sleepy.

Are there more photos? Do you have to ask?

Where to propose?

engagement ring proposalA guy emails:

So I intend on proposing to my girlfriend soon. I have the ring and everything. The thing I am stuck on is where I should do it.
Do your readers have any suggestions for a romantic place in the area (up to a 4 hour drive is fine) for me to pop the question?

This is an important question! We hope you have some good suggestions for this guy!

Matt Streifert and Alana Sangiacomo

Quite possibly the Capital Region's cutest couple.

So yesterday we showed you the video of Matt Streifert's theatrical proposal to his girlfriend Alana Sangiacomo after Sunday's curtain call at The Fantasticks in Clifton Park. Well the post got sooo much attention that we're considering referring to them as Matlana. (We won't though. We promise.)

Anyway, since everybody loves a good proposal story, we caught up with Matt and Alana to ask about the details.

The Albany Academy music teacher and local actor pulled off one of the sweetest proposals
ever at Sunday's performance of The Fantasticks at Clifton Park's Not So Common Players.

Matt played "The Boy" and his girlfriend Alana Sangiacomo played "The Girl." After the curtain call Matt...

You know what -- we're just going to show you.

Tugboats!

The Seahorse -- winner of the 2009 "little toot" award. Yes, "little toot."

If you like tugboats (and really, who doesn't), you might want to check out Sebastien's photos from this weekend's Tugboat Round-up in Waterford.

After our tour of the tug Trilogy last year, we've sort of developed a thing for the tugboats. They're cute, they're little and they work hard -- much like ourselves.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
