  1. Gardening Thread 2019

    The catalogs are arriving and our Winter weary brains are turning towards looking out the window, dreaming what we'll do when Spring arrives. What are your garden plans? And as time goes on throughout the year, how's it looking?
  2. Amazon.com Facility In Chemung County

    There shouldn't be one thin dime spent on any studies whatsoever since the company has already said "screw it" and will just continue out of existing facilities. It's a nice idea but there are a couple concerns in have. One being the effect on local retailers. Would a hypothetical Amazon distribution center in our backyard mean availability of same day delivery? I don't think even Walmart would be able to compete with that. Secindly, during a job interview, I was told that a surprisingly large percentage of potential employees in this area are unable to pass a simple drug test. The ones that can are being competed for among employers. What, if any, effect would this and the hypothetical influx of new jobs have on the area? A trickle down of employment opportunities and are lack of able or willing bodies to fill it? Again, all hypothetical. Especially since it wasn't just the city of NY that caused Amazon to back out but the state as well. Anyone doubt the unions would still be breathing down their neck whether downstate or here?

  4. Crystal City Olive Oil

    The Comic Pear is a solid go to for pork chops, we recently found. Probably good with chicken as well. Can't wait to grill some stuff this Summer!
  5. Crystal City Olive Oil

    This place was recommended by a friend years ago, and when we finally got to Market Street in Corning we stopped in. They have a wide variety of olive oil and balsamic vinegars, some seasonal, some always in stock. There's several locations: Corning, Owego, and a new on in Watkins Glen. The staff at the two locations we've been to are always friendly always helpful. All product can be sampled so you know what you're buying. Perhaps able to think of how to use it. We're solidly hooked on the Tuscan herb infused olive oil. It's great with pork, chicken, even home fries. Some of the balsamic blends we have and use are lemon, raspberry, even espresso flavored. The raspberry I'd like to try over vanilla ice cream, but it's also great with chicken, especially used in conjunction with heavier spices. It's worth checking out, especially if you like to cook and expiriment in the kitchen like I do. Learn more about them at http://www.crystalcityoliveoil.com

    I've never had it either. No real reason, as I've heard nothing but good about their food. However if I want spaghetti I just make my own sauce ( which ain't too shabby if I say so myself ).
  7. Contamination at Elmira High School?

    I always thought it was a combination of the cleanup going on, Walter Hang needing something to grasp on to once fracking was banned, and a major county election coming up that got the whole thing going again.
  8. How in the hell did I not know this was happening?!? We saw them at Tag's back in '99 I think it was and they absolutely rocked. I've never seen a band play so long an encore ever. We thought they were done, left, and they started up a second encore as we were walking back to our cars. A guy I worked with who moonlighted as a bouncer there said the band remarked how much fun they had there that night. And it showed. Regionally it looks like they'll be at Candandaiguia. Looking forward to hearing the new stuff.

    Damn! I wonder if she'd be interested in joining a band. I love watching stuff like this, thanks for posting it Johnny!
  11. Super Bowl Chat 2019

  12. Super Bowl Chat 2019

    Just minutes away from kickoff. Open thread to discuss all things Super Bowl.
  13. Goodreads.com Challenge

    I don't know if anyone else uses it, but goodreads.com is a pretty cool site and app where you can track what books you've read, connect with other fellow readers as well as authors as well ass get recommendations for you to read. There's also the Reading Challenge where at the beginning of the year you set a number of books you want to read for the year. Then as you finish books you add them to the list. So you're kind of competing with yourself and it's as fun way to make sure you're reading instead of getting list in social media rabbit holes. I usually keep it around 40 books to be realistic, but almost always come in around 50. So this year my goal is 52 books, one book a week. I think you're allowed to count if you reread a book, but I only count new books. Does anyone else do this challenge or something like it?
  14. Super Bowl Chat 2019

    More like the Snoozer Bowl. Even the ads were lame. The GOT and Bud Light Mashup was good though. Halftime show... meh. I like Maroon 5 but it wasn't one of the better ones. Sound was poorly mixed too. Seemed like everyone was playing it safe this year.

  18. Goodreads.com Challenge

    Man, just couldn't get into Dune. Which stinks, as I'm looking for a multi-billion series to sink my teeth into. May try Robert Jordans "Wheel of Time" series again. But that was another I couldn't get on board with. I'm re-reading the Amber series now, mostly when I go to bed. ( No technology in bed for me ) but I don't count re-reads on my Goodreads challenge.
  19. Working the Bees

    Yep, for a few years now. Can't remember I checked on them this past summer or not. Guessing I didn't since the creek was flooded more often than not. If we see rain like last year, it'd be nearly impossible to get over there. But I'd be okay with someone helping to propogate "native" bees.
  20. Pot Luck Ideas

    Yeah, yours is always a hit. Maybe post the recipe in a new thread?
  21. Working the Bees

    Last I knew my bees were doing well. Ya know, the ones that live in a huge pine tree across the creek.
  22. Pot Luck Ideas

    My wife makes a veggie pizza that's always a hit as an hors d'oeuvre. Also a couple other easy to throw togwther recipes. I'll have to post the recipe later.
  23. Aquaman

    Yeah, what'd he do besides ride around on a seahorse and talk to fish?
