Pirates rock, sunset over frack pond.life is both wonderful and crazy awful. Such beauty and destruction.. Ganesha, are you the one who guides? Informs? How do I understand this multiplicity of realities?

Pomegranate

Pomegranate on transit is really yummy. It's the highlight of trips to see clients out in clarence. Super tasty and be sure to get the brown rice. (e:terry) says the chicken is cooked and spiced "professionally marinated" to perfection. The hummus was one of the best we've ever had. I had the pomegranate-walnut stew over brown rice today. Yum. I've had the eggplant delight a couple times and I love it. The eggplant comes with a bit of the stew on it as a sauce.

Inadequate bike rack

I just rode my bike over to Tops & Rite Aid over on Niagara. Rite Aid's bike rack was at least identifiable as a bike rack, but it wasn't securely secured to the ground. Tops' bike rack was insufficient, so I locked my bike to a locked cart. Carlos the Cart Guard (that's what his nametag said) kinda scolded me, so I asked him what I should do next time since the rack was clearly inadequate. He suggested I get a different kind of lock. :-p

image

I've been trying to increase the amount of biking-as-transportation I do and I've found that bike racks are not evenly distributed around the city. At the First Niagara where we have our business account, we have to use a street sign. The account rep we spoke with said the racks have been stolen in the past and they don't want to keep replacing them. At the Washington Street post office, we use the hand rail. Allentown has lots of bike racks.

More stuff

Jill & Shane let me have this awesome globe lamp. We've been cleaning out and organizing the office and lots of random things are being tossed or given away. I also scored a four-drawer vertical fling cabinet.

Stuff


Nineteen Buffalo Queer Women went to Spicy Thai last night. I had an excellent basil eggplant, Thai spicy. Nice place and they were very gracious about having 75 percent of their seating taken up. I didn't get the impression that Thursday nights are hoppin'.

Nisha is visiting and loves all the attention at Taza. Fausto & Paula let her sit on their laps.

My truck broke down on Edward between Franklin & Delaware on Wednesday. The Midas on Niagara Street came and towed me and then the mechanics huddled around like it was the coolest new mystery. Ignition coil failed.

Tioga river sluice wash out

A took this picture yesterday of a spot on near the headwaters of the Tioga by County Bridge.

image

Approximately where the lat-long marker is:

It's DCNR land so it's unlikely that the sluice will be replaced. The other end of the path also has sluices washed out. We get back there with A's 4wd F150 but it's rough.

I have a neat video of a road and its sluice pipe being washed way in Broome County, NY, but it looks like it's in icky FB format and I can't share outside. My favorite amusement park, Knoebel's Grove in Elysburg, PA, has been hit pretty hard but they've always bounced back from flooding. You can see their pix here

More random silly shots

Carcassonne with the piggies & hydrants expansion; Ecoey; the wine that Uncle Dudley keeps in her fridge is not nearly the quality of wine I've been drinking lately, including some excellent homemade zinfandel and muscata (maybe).
