i'm up late again........a rerun of Iron Chef America.......battle herring......against Iron Chef Morimoto ( my D and her Hubby have eaten in his Philadelphia restaurant...and i'll never  forgive them)....but at some point i probably will go to the frig and get out my bottle of pickled herring.......absolutely one of my fav snacks.....seem appropriate......[oops forgot to mention one of the judges is Kaley Cuoco]
winter is here, finally, the good news is that we only have another 3 maybe 4 months of really bad weather...i live just off the last of the great lakes ( from west to east, or the first of the great lakes if you go east to west) and in a lake effect area...been in my rooms for like 10 days...major problem is not the snow....major problem is i'm a 3 legged man....two i was born with and one made of wood [aka my cane]....added to that i don't drive anymore [ neither cars or golf balls]...i live on one of if not the busiest street in town...7 to 8 months a year...no problem...everything i need is within a 10 minute walk...but in the winter....the city is slow in enforcing the laws to clean sidewalks...and frowns on a gimpy 68 year old man, with a cane walking on one of the busiest streets in town...not to mention i've done the math...my chances of a meeting between me and a SUV...odds are not on my side..
left my rooms just before 2400 hours.....no traffic to speak of...took the long walk...
to the convenient store...needed dip...and my local food mart [24/7]......some nice olives, naan bread, artichokes, 3 cans of pea soup, a 6 pack [ no..no..no...] of burritos, a prepared breakfast dish, and a frozen sandwich.........
weather seems to allow a shorter walk tomorrow....and i'll be set for another week......

i grew up in New York State....now when in college it was assumed that i grew up in or near the City...and it was true i grew up near the City...but it was Buffalo...not NYC.....but i have been draw off the point of this post
at the time 7th grade history in New York State schools, was take a wild guess....that's right.....New York State History......and a big part of that was the history of the Iroquois Nation....those peeps who held the land before we came [link]

haven't written much lately, or played my online game much....my Internet access was hit and miss for a couple....and then i don't know whether i caught a bug or the bug caught me, but I've been as we say up here under the weather the last couple....plus winter has finally arrived with a vengeance...

we had 2 days over the weekend with temps in the low 40s*F....and the snow was basically gone, except for the piles from plowing and shoveling....but we just got some where between 2 and 3 inches of fresh powder.....with may be more on the way....one of the strangest winters i've see in my 50 winters here.....
