Salt Den In Latham Said To Be Where To Go For Respitory Health Help

Allergies? Yeah, I've got those. Badly, actually.

People usually express after the third or fourth, "God Bless You," that they're done blessing me. It's cool. I'm used to it. In fact, I typically tell them not to bother after the first one because some days, there might be 15 sneezes coming my way at any given moment.

Need a Job? Delivery Could Be An Option For a Panera Location Near You!

When you think about the food that you can get delivered to your house, the options are fairly minimal. If you're luck, the pizza joint down the street happens to sell more than just pizza. But, even then, what if you don't want Italian? (because lets face it, it's usually Italian.) Then your next best option is probably Chinese food.

Is This REALLY The Most Popular Ice Cream Flavor in the Capital Region?

I posed the question Wednesday on he GNA Facebook page: What's your favorite ice cream flavor? What happened next, I wasn't expecting.

First of all, we got a ton of comments and when first reading through them, you can tell the diversity in tastes from person to person. There were so many different choices (35 to be exact!) and as I read off each one in my head, my mouth started to water just a little bit more.

Are Plastic Shopping Bags a Waste? Should We Do Without? [POLL – VOTE]

I believe there are a million other worries we should have on things to fix in the world before we worry about plastic shopping bags - BUT - I keep seeing articles pop up on it any way.

Shopping stores are banning them all around the country; in fact Central New York is getting set to be the first area of New York to put the law to the test.
