About Chris

  1. I've been thinking about somehow getting the hens over to the goat's pen to scratch around and clean up the ticks. Might be one hell of a sight herding them across the road though.
  2. Woodstock 50th Coming To Watkins Glen

    Attendance is reported to be capped at 75,000 I saw this meme on Facebook, thought it was kinda funny:
  3. Have you ever seen one of those examples of an average test for the average student in the late 1800's? Now, while some would disagree, I consider myself to be an intelligent person. I had no friggin clue what the answers were. But what we're seeing now is not only an absolute dumbing down of a nation, but the people of that nation are happily skipping towards complete ignorance. Our society not only caters to, it celebrates the lowest common denominator. Let us not forget "The Learning Channel" introduced us to "Honey Boo Boo". I see the results of where we are and, scarier still, the future everyday. Ignorance is not only bliss these days, it's displayed with bravado.

  5. County Executive & Legislature Disagreements

    It just keeps going. Better that I just post the link to the County Executive Facebook page: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1079832212209260&id=130760693783088
  6. To the best of my knowledge, yes. I'd have to look up the exact wording, but commercial drivers have to do a pre-trip inspection at the beginning of every trip. I guess I was under the assumption that he was the driver of the vehicle.
  7. Woodstock 50th Coming To Watkins Glen

    I no sooner made my last post and they reported on the news the reason is they haven't gotten the gathering permit yet.
  8. Woodstock 50th Coming To Watkins Glen

    Apparently the ticket sales have been delayed. I can't imagine it's due to the Black Keys backing out. Sorry, but selling them as weekend passes only, no single day, is ridiculous.
  9. For those who are watching ( sorry Hal ), I have a feeling we are going to get our hearts ripped out soon. The past two episodes have been setting up or the big battle in the North, and with only 4 more to go, well...
  10. Craft Beers

    I always loved sweet tea when I was little. Can't stand it now. They've got some good ones!
  11. Craft Beers

    Or, I just don't have a very discerning palate.
  12. Craft Beers

    Yesterday I took a ride up to Keuka Brewing with a buddy and tried some of their wares. Really a cool little place, off the beaten path a bit outside of Hammondsport, but not too far from Dr Konstatine Frank. I tried the "Fat Stack", "Murder", "Honey Kolsch", "BA Coconut Brown", and "Farmhouse #3". Rather than try and remember details to give a description of each, I thought ahead and took a pic: I also tasted a couple sips of the "BA Local Mocha". Pretty much everything I sampled I enjoyed with the exception of the "Murder", which had a weird tasting finish. Neither of us cared for it. The Honey Kolsch was okay, nothing exceptional. I think I was expecting more of a honey taste to it. The "Fat Stack" I really enjoyed; you could smell the maple as you brought it to your mouth and finished with a slight nutty, pecan taste. I had low expectations for the "Farmhouse #3", a saison brewed with local blueberries. I just haven't been able to find a blueberry beer that compares to Horseheads'. You definitely get a blueberry smell from it, but the taste isn't overpowering. It's just about right. The beer has a slight pinkish hue to it, even the foam. I had an additional pint of this and it was a good sipper for a warm Spring day. I also got a half growler to go. Cool little place with friendly staff. They also serve list light finger foods so you can go and hang out for a while with both indoor and outdoor seating. With 16 beers on tap, we only scratched the surface!
  13. Iszards Has Been Purchased

    Elmira, in terms of retail such as Iszards and other departments stores, is not coming back. Ever. Department stores in malls are barely making it anymore due to the ease of inline shopping. The Elmira some generations remember is never coming back. And we as apartment community have to get used to that. Offices and apartments will change the look of downtown Elmira however. People living and working there will likely prefer to spend their money there rather than drive to Big Flats. More people living and working there means opportunity for smaller specialty shops, coffee houses, restaurants, and nightclubs. The trick is going to be getting the local politicians to GTFO of the way and let things happen. Get rid of the BS regulations that have caused others' attempts to fail. That's what I am most skeptical about, the bureaucratic BS.
  14. Working the Bees

    Looks like we missed the boat. I got across the creek this morning and there was no signs of life at the bee tree. I watched for a while, but then got distracted by a pair of Wood ducks coming in for a landing in the swamp.
