  1. First time reaction to hearing...

    Maybe it's the fact that I just got back from Bethel NY where there was a definite vibe, even to someone like me. Maybe its because I'm a musician, if i may be so bokd as to say so. Maybe it's the huge Lime Rickey I just chugged, extra heavy on the "rickey", but this guy's reaction made me a little teary-eyed. Music is a universal language, a perfect language we all share. Dude... Thanks for sharing this video Johnny, I needed that.
  2. 18 South Pitney St. South Waverly PA 18840 (570) 731-0222 https://www.facebook.com/BluestoneBrewingCo/ After being told for a couple years I should check this place out, we finally had an opportunity to stop in for supper on Monday. It's not hard to find, just follow Elmira Rd past Tops and take your first right after the Hampton Inn on the right. They have a lot of good brews to choose from, including several seasonals. Additionally they offer wines and spirits in limited quantities. The Blackberry 1537 Ale jumped out at me, so I tried it. Not bad, although not as berry flavored as I would have expected, just a hint, not much more. Still, it was a pretty good drinker. A friend who knows her beer said to try the Big Elk Amber Ale, so I did. I wasn't disappointed. It's a bold, good tasting beer with just the right amount of hops. We ordered supper, getting a burger and pulled pork sandwich. The food is pretty good and didn't take long to get it. They have an interesting menu selection including stuff made with locally sourced ingredients. We enjoyed everything, including the hot spinach artichoke dips we got for an appetizer. There service was quick and friendly, and the place has a nice, laid back atmosphere overall. I'll definitely go back. My only regret is it took me so long to get down there. I definitely recommend it for a laid back meal or just to hang out and sip some brews.

  4. Working the Bees

    You watch, of all the trees that get blown over around here, that one will outlast me.
  5. Working the Bees

    I checked "my hive" this afternoon. They're gone. Part of me wonders if the honey is still there in that tree though.
  6. County Legislature Pay And Benefits

    Really guys, no one feels like you're going after bus drivers. Besides, they have pretty thick skin even if you were.
  7. City Logo - We need a new one

    Yeah, there's no denying it is an asset to the city, but there's something more, something bigger, that identifies Elmira. I DO think the river needs to embraced as a part of that identity.
  8. County Legislature Pay And Benefits

    Well, it is a pretty "paltry" salary. I'll give one of them credit, he ends up giving some of it back to the community in various ways.
  9. City Logo - We need a new one

    I've never really thought about it, but I suppose it's not a terrible idea. What is a terrible idea though? That purple idea. The blue line and rings work, but the purple back drop is hideous. Additionally, I think the city can identify itself as something more than Elmira College, so I'm not a fan of that idea.

    For those who enjoy reading and sometimes have trouble finding the next book to read, Bookbub.com was recommended to me and signing up was a good move. You'll get daily e mails with recommended titles based on your reading preferences. I download a free sample from Amazon almost daily.

  14. Ok, seemed kinda strange is all.
  15. BAM! Right in the feels.
  16. Initial report are between 15-20 casualties, no word on how many fatalities. 21 year old suspect in custody. It's already playing out like usual. Young man goes off the rails and does this. People flocking to social media railing against guns and "thoughts and prayers" ( as if their posting were any more effective ). Everyone calling for something to be done, and once again ignoring the underlying issue or the search for the issue. Here's a hint: It ain't guns, people. We live in a society where far too many people don't value their own life, nevermind the lives of others. Furthermore, I'll bet an order of wings at Bernie Murray's this kid is from a middle class or more affluent family and on at least one psych med.
  17. I see no reason the committee can't continue to explore options on their own and make recommendations at future county or city meetings. Speaking of Jim Waters though, it could just be coincidence, but it seems kinda strange for two city councilman to resign for personal reasons within months of each other.
  18. Anybody else not really buying that? If one of our boys came home with a new rifle and I didn't think they were mature enough, I don't need the police telling me it's okay or not.
  19. Honestly? I'm not sure what to think anymore.
  20. Apparently there's more going than than I heard about today. Christina has a new blog post, and since I'm on my phone and its got a lot of embedded material, I'm just gonna post the link here: https://chemungcountymatters.com/2019/08/07/more-from-the-city-county-committee-including-its-termination-by-county-executive-moss/?fbclid=IwAR0xc5o2PRSXOvtRkYMsiRt_hvpLuZ_YwymkxfbZ1vIZ31MPeq3kikMkYEc
  21. I changed the topic title to reflect all three incidents from the weekend, including the one largely ignored. By the way, here's some names we should be hearing more: Those are the cops that ran towards the Ohio shooter and dropped him before he could go in that packed nightclub where people were hiding.
  22. Read the rest HERE
  23. E.T. Book Club

    Man, I tried but just couldn't get into Dune.
  24. Oh how I love armchair quarterbacking. And of course if the officers decide to arrest the individual and a pursuit ensues where civilians are hurt? Or if trying to apprehend the person they fight and end up dead? Pretty sure the police would be left hanging by his majesty.
