News That Matters
Good Friday Morning:
Sorry we're late! I woke late this morning after having another night of nightmares and disquieting dreams. No, it's not the new Obama administration and it's not Andy DeStefano's announcement that he's joined the masses running for Sheriff. I have no idea what it is but here we are anyway.
I don't have much listed for this weekend (you're not sending me stuff!) but there are a few interesting events worth checking out.
My usual recommendation is to turn off the idiot box and get out of your house for a hike. Thanks to NY State Parks, DEP and DEC and other agencies, Putnam County is home to more than 20,000 acres of permanently preserved open space lands with hundreds of miles of trails and they're here for you to use, explore and wander in. There's a partial list here at PlanPutnam's outdoor recreation page which has seen 20860 visitors so there must be something of interest there! Check it out.
We'll be back on Monday.
Tonight:The Second Atlas of Breeding Birds in New York State

8PM (For those of you not allowed to stay up late). Join Mike Latini, Jim Nowak and Larry Eidelman at Daniel J's in Patterson (at the foot of Thunder Ridge) for a "night of music, and whatever". Mike seems to schedule these things on the same night as AotL has events - so choose wisely!
