‘To All a Good Night’ – One Final Time Through Albany’s Lights in the Park
Driving through the park a few weeks ago, I couldn't help but notice the last display you see on the way out of Capital Holiday Lights in the Park.  It says, "And to all a good night!"   That stuck with me.

Watch Yer Mouth! These are the 10 Things Upstate New Yorkers Love Arguing About
WE can say it, but don't you dare talk that smack if you're NOT from Upstate! Upstate New York life is good, but ask anyone who lives here and they'll tell you it's far from perfect.   While most of us share in our love for the change of seasons, certain foods, topography, and gifts that are unique to our area, there are plenty of things we don't agree on.
