After living in Manhattan, moving to Montclair with my ex was like night and day. Loved my time there.

Milwaukee- Got my tickets for the September 11th weekend of Summer Fest. Tickets for Chappelle and ZZ Top, Living Colour, Wilco, Filter, Toad the Wet Sprocket, 311...
Wow, Living Colour, that's a blast from the past. I saw them on Memorial Field when I went to visit my siblings over Spring Weekend years ago. They rocked!

All true.

I've been visiting my sister during her summers (and now year round) in Ithaca & north for nearly three decades, so I'm well-acquainted with Ithaca & Moosewood

As to Bloodroot, by my perception, it has often given off a chilly vibe toward men, but things jumped noticeably in my favor after one time when I encountered my original yoga teacher. A connection was made because one of the two restaurant partners did a class at a different time & location with Sophie, one which I later joined occasionally. It was like I got issued a credible ally card.

Then again, it had felt like an understandable, "Yeah, we don't get treated so great out in most of the world, so allow our cold attitude to raise your consciousness some." I've known men who have stayed away.
Moosewood - they need to have a fire hose in the back so they can give their staff their circus elephant treatment and hose them down before a shift - those folks stink to high heaven.

Wall Street Journal did an article on where people are moving, focus on smaller cities where people go from big cities. Greenville was #1 on the list. It looked really interesting.

Along the same lines.. Hans might get a kick out of this.. Going to Ithaca again .. An hour or two from Cornell-our destination.. I'm riding shotgun and kind of spacing out-We're in farm country. I look to the left at a small farm and see a camel laying down under a tree in the shade. For the record-- I was stone sober!!

We talked about that for the whole weekend and agreed to look for him on our way home. Sure enough.. There he was..

Turns out that this farm was a rescue facility for retired circus animals. Saw my first camel(and albino deer) on the way to Ithaca/Cornell.

Can't make this "stuff" up.
Went to undergrad up in Ithaca. Cornell is just a beautiful campus. I will be going in October for the first time since 1990. I had always intended to be a regular visitor. I was '83 Econ and by '93 had a 4 and 2 year old so didn't go to my 10 year. Mistake.

I will hit Moosewood and will have to Google College town to see what still exists. Chanticleer bar downtown. Was already old when I was there. Bet it still exists. Can't wait.
