The Bikers are out!Today on my way to my open house, I couldn't help noticing the many Bikers travelling north on the Route 9 corridor. The first group passed me just before the Culinary Institute, then there were a few cars and then another group, you could say they owned the road and with the accompanying noise I sure took notice. There were bikes of all kinds. I wonder where they were heading? Today the weather was great and it sure was an awesome day for a bike ride.The Bikers are out!

Speechless Sunday| Fishing in the Hudson River - 04/15/12 08:45 PM
The weather today was delightful; and many decided to have some fun on the Hudson River, I saw sail boats and other watercrafts. I was especially intrigued by the couple who setup chairs and threw their fishing line into the Hudson River. I actually saw the woman catch a fish and she was extremely proud of her accomplishment. She then made a decision to throw it back, I missed the shot because at that moment I took a phone call. Yes the Hudson River could be considered the centerpiece of the region.

Could this be green fencing in Red Hook. I went passed this farm several times, and I noticed the bales of hays at the edge of the farmland. On my last trip I also noticed that they were stacked between post, and then it struck me could this be a form of green fencing in Red Hook? I am sure those bales would remain intact until the crop was harvested.

One sign of spring I don't welcome - 04/04/12 08:51 PM
I do love the beautiful flowers of spring, the green grass, the birds singing and the warmer weather. Spring does have some drawbacks, mosquitoes, Lyme tick and of course that creepy garden snake. As a gardener I should love the garden snake since it gets rid of bugs, mice, slug, voles, Japaneses beetles, so you could say a garden snake is really good for the garden. If I could just get beyond the creepiness.
Take a tour of the Culinary Institute of America in Historic Hyde Park NY - 04/02/12 07:22 PM
A couple of days ago I posted a photo of the fountain at the Culinary institute of America and promised to follow up with a video. In the process of making the video, I suddenly remembered that this was one of the last places I toured with my dad before he passed away a few years ago. This brought back so many memories and I suspect the Culinary Institute of America will always be special to me. Students make Hyde Park NY their home for a few years while they hone their culinary skills. You can't help liking the property it (14 comments)
