  1. Woodstock 50th Coming To Watkins Glen

    They expect to sell out full weekend passes. I'm still thinking this isn't exactly my thing, so doesn't matter to me.
  2. Game Of Thrones Season 8 Official Trailer

    This script has been ran many times in the past; complete and utter despair, and then the miracle happens to pull out a victory for the heroes. Possibly twice, once with the walkers and another against the Lanister army. But, with GOT, you know a whole bunch of people are going to die before that happens. I'm looking forward to the ass kicking Cersie is going to get in the final episodes. 😀
  3. Craft Beers

    I've had some of their brews a few years ago when someone brought a few growlers. It was all pretty bad, like a home brewer who didn't know how to scale up. Sounds like they might have improved since then. Thanks for the update.
  4. Working the Bees

    Another swarm will move back in. Looks like my final tally is that I am down to just six hives. My five frame nuc experiment was a complete failure. I've had very good luck with four and five frame nucs in the past. I think the big difference is I used the corplast EZ nuc boxes. Didn't insulate anything but the top, other than sticking two side by side. Those boxes have a lot of small ventilation holes which the bees like to block with propolis. I don't know whether they had too much or too little ventilation. I'm going to stick to wood boxes for over wintering. I plan to go through the hives today and start getting them ready for summer. Remove any sugar blocks, flip the inner covers to the summer position. They've been bringing in pollen for a few weeks now on every warm day, so I'll be checking for brood and looking to see if the are starting to backfill the brood area with nectar. Red maples are flowering, with sugar maples not far behind, this is when I typically get into swarm trouble. Going to try and get ahead of it this year.
  5. Crystal City Olive Oil

    I always had a love/hate relationship with olive oil. I read an article a few years ago that helped to explain it. Americans tend to think rancid olive oil is what olive oil is supposed to taste like. https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/most-of-us-are-blissfully-ignorant-about-how-much-rancid-olive-oil-we-use/ Since then, I have almost completely given up on buying and using olive oil. I absolutely despise the smell and taste of rancid olive oil. I have had "oils" on the table in some restaurants for bread dipping which don't have this rancid taste, usually they have no taste at all which I suspect means they are not olive oil. Too much of what I have bought has been rancid, not the good "bitter" of Olive oil. For the cost, I'm hesitant to buy without tasting first. If they provide tastings, I just might stop in this place to see what they have. Thanks for the tip!

    Such as the king slayers hand?
  7. Game Of Thrones Season 8 Official Trailer

    John Snow's sword? hmmm...
  8. Puzzle

    Great team work!
  9. Puzzle

    I just saw this and it reminded me of the recent snowflake posting where Target Staples Aldi Dick's. So, what song is this? Scroll down past these blank lines to see potential spoilers.
  10. County Executive & Legislature Disagreements

    Are expenses like this in the budget, or are they making up their own rules once again?
  11. County Executive & Legislature Disagreements

    I'll take your word on Facebook, I don't go there. From what I am seeing, Moss is trying to reign in the outlaws that have been running rough shod over our laws in this county for decades. Guess what folks, there is a new sheriff in town! It appears Sonsire, like any good political bureaucrat talks a good line, but walking the line is a bit beyond what should be expected.
  12. County Executive & Legislature Disagreements

    Looking a little deeper, it appears I may have given Sonsire a bit too much credit. From her blog, she details the sordid history of how the powers to be have ran rough shod over the Home Rule laws which govern counties that operate under a Charter. Resolutions have been used in place of laws and budgets to determine the structure and spending of the county. She explains this entire history and now uses it to justify changing the charter to make these things legal. The line which really stands out is this one: See what she did there? "Simply amends"? New York State Home Rule law, which applies to counties operating under charters, clearly states changes to the charter must be subject to a public referendum. See Article 4, section 33, paragraph 7b here: https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/laws/MHR/33 For a NYS bar attorney to say a county charter can be simply amended by the passing of a local law is nothing short of amazing.
  13. County Executive & Legislature Disagreements

    According to New York home rule law, article 4, any changes to the charter law shall not become operative until passed by the voters in a general or special election. Sonsire, being a lawyer, should know this. I am going to assume the details listed this far are not complete, rather than assume we have a bunch of would be tyrants in our hands.
  14. Here is a great summary, sounding more like the pro-wrestling with the more I read. https://morning-skate.com/2019/03/11/refs-have-been-pulled-for-the-rest-of-the-federal-hockey-league-season-following-an-assault-on-referees/
  15. Is this real, or just free advertisement for a financially struggling hockey league?
