Cheese

Oddly, this is a follow up to (e:heidi,49711) and the cheese conversation. They're from a tiny village called Germania in Potter County, Pa. Germania has one of the oldest continuously running volunteer fire departments in the state, the Goodyear Hose Company #1.

Germania Hotel (I have some pretty cool pix of the inside - just amazing that the place hasn't been abandoned.)

Loot

I went in the Can Can Candy store on elmwood after hitting the coop for lunch. The hot bar choices sucked so I got some discontinued amy's organics freezer food and mango sorbet. And then I got all this loot! Not the aqarius game... That just looked pretty with the candy. All my childhood favorites :-)

Cabot with wax coating? I'll have to check it out. In the meantime, I've got this one.

"We Bid You Goodnight"

How funny that (e:mrmike) would post that title... The Grateful Dead version of this American traditional has been on an inaccessible edge of my consciousness since posting all those bluegrass tunes.

The video on this is terrible but the sound quality seems to be better than average. Alpine Valley, 1989.

A completely different music...



My bff, her hubby & I are considering the DC show of this festival

If I've turned you on to bluegrass, you might want to consider the Hickory Festival (HickFest for short) Aug. 19-21 in Tioga County.
