TMJ: I had a few really good meetings today at Albany DOT. One of these days where I am surrounded by smart, driven people committed to making this government faster, better and friendlier. I’m going to miss it here.
I also bought some new winter boots. Really warm ones, because all kinds of weather channels (including my mom’s infallible bird and berry bush observing) are screaming: this one is gonna be a white one. Ugh. I hate winter.
Around 9PM, I picked up Camilo. We had a little date at Brown’s and the Confectionery in Troy. Yuk, the Confectionery’s wine isn’t great. I rarely do this, but I asked to try a few different kinds of wine, ended up going with a glass of the most expensive one, and I STILL didn’t like it. Apparently the wine comes from all organic, sustainable, women owned wineries, all of which I totally love…. [all but the taste.]
WILT: Gingko Bilboa trees have been around for 270,000,000 years. They were the only things that didn’t die during the Hiroshima bombing.
