There’s something I dare not speak of.

You see that up there? And then do you see the other thing? I can’t, I just can’t. After last year, I just dare not speak of it.

And then there’s that other plant. You see that? You see all those?  Ugh, I can’t. I just can’t. I can’t talk about it.  I just sit and fret and chew on my nails and check the weather obsessively.  Ugggggh.  I can’t stand imagining another year of failure.

So! Let’s concentrate on the things I can talk about. Like garlic, turnips and cherries.

Wow, well hello there every0ne! And thank you so much for stopping by! (And an extra big thank you to MUG! God I love you guys!)

I’m sure some of you are wondering, “Well, gee … Why did Manhattan User’s Guide send us to this blog that seems to be all about life in Upstate New York?”  And you have a point. But I can very much assure you that I am a New Yorker through and through. I’ve been in New York for going on 12 years now and, in fact, I’m typing this from right here in Manhattan.

For a little history on the site, check out this about page.

For some very New York-centric stories see this group of posts.

And for my pictures of New York see this set on my Flickr stream.

Once again, thank you all for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit.
