More Shutdowns in the Elmwood Village

Just shortly after Sahara Grill closed down ;( , Elmwood Bagels closed down too. I went there this afternoon for a sandwich and there was a sign saying thanks for being loyal customers they enjoyed there time in the elmwood village but had to close. I wonder if they are moving somewhere else. You think they would have a forwarding address if that was the case.

Medina Deli On North Street

I have talked about Media Deli (e:paul,40698) a bunch of times in the past. Yesterday, there were actually a coupel people eating there in the morning and then today when i was walking past it on my way to work, I saw it was closed. Once I got to Main Street I saw why.

A freakin' car drove up the curb and slammed into it. I wonder if it was an accident or someone trying to cause damage or rob it.

Everything inside looked untouched, so it makes me think accident.

What is up with all the stores in the Allen Village being closed. I am hoping by calling it a village, everything will get fabulous.

This one is starting to smell moldy. I have a super power for detecting mold.

All the stuff in the windows is melting. It is such a weird mix of candles and food and knives.

The sky was so pretty yesterday after work.

I thought you guys would get a kick out of this.

Information Infrastructure

I would really like to become something bigger in the organization I work for. I realize I haven't been there very long but I have this feeling I could really help organize and analyze systems on a much larger scale. I don't just mean for web development. There seems to be so much reliance on software vendors but I think there isn't necessarily an understanding for what they do. I wonder if I will ever attain a larger role in making decisions on a more comprehensive level.

One guy was telling me the other day he planned on spending $90,000 on a systems that prevented insecurities in web applications. That is utterly ridiculous. First of all because such a solution could not possibly exist among the multitude of web based systems we run. I guarantee that whatever it does cannot be worth$90,000.

There are so many diverse groups that don't seem to know enough about each other.

The Big News

Well at least it isn't something bad.

It is victories like the one mentioned above that enabled the Elmwood Village Association to be included in the roster of neighborhoods that made the 2007 list of Great Places in America. It's a big deal for Buffalo, and the award will act as a lure to draw more businesses and people to the district.

I am sure this will really boost the city moral just like being an All America City did.

Here is the whole write up about the "Elmwood Village." Read it, it is actually nice
