How Many Of Our High Schools Made the Top 25 List In Upstate?

I'll be honest, I expected more. I expected better. Maybe I think too highly of our area and our local schools? I'm not sure, but when this list of Top 25 high schools of upstate new york came out on newyorkupstate.com I was left scratching my head.

Remember the Ice Storm of 2008? See Video

In the winter of 2008, we had one heck of an ice storm that hit the Capital Region! Power was out in the majority of the surrounding area and not just for a couple hours, but for some weeks. You were thankful to know someone with a generator and that, maybe the Subway down the street was able to whip up some sandwiches for the family.

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.

My Reaction to One of My Favorite Shows, Bates Motel Coming to An End Last Night [SPOILERS]

It happens to every television show at some point; the inevitable final episode.

That was it. Nothing more to look forward to. No anticipation for next weeks 52 minutes. It's all done.

Bates Motel is easily one of my Top 10 favorite shows of all time. I was always a fan of Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho," so when Bates Motel was set to air as a prequel to the movie, I was psyched (pun intended, sort of.)

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. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about some chicken lomein and a side of crab rangoon, but these options are getting pretty lackluster these days.

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.

WOW – Watch the Wellington Hotel Implosion in Albany From 2014 – Amazing To Witness [VIDEO]

The 100-year old Wellington Hotel had sat vacant in downtown Albany for years and in order to get rid of an eye sore and also utilize the space it held in a more useful manner, it had to go. So, in August of 2014, the city of Albany got rid of it.

They didn't just get rid of it though, they did it with some pizzazz!
