Although I was born in Boston, I have lived most of my life here in the Buffalo area. I must like it then, huh? The winters are great here. Since I bought a snow blower a couple of years ago, I've barely had a chance to use it. You know, guys have a special relationship with their "toys". If only I could have the same luck with my lawn mower. Went to Amherst Central High School, home of the Tigers (not to be confused with the Bengals. They're from Buff State. I didn't go there, but I managed to graduate from UB; communications is a tad easier than med school). I'll see you down the road. Peace out.

The tourney that began with just 16 teams has grown to 144 teams, bringing in more than 1,000 hockey players — both men and women — to the Erie Basin Marina. The tournament is set for Feb. 10 to 12 and will include night games under special lighting on Feb. 10 and Feb.11, if only the the lake freezes over.

The Lost Art Of Highway Courtesy. Or What Part Of No Left Turn Don’t You Understand?

I was about to pull out of the parking lot after doing my grocery shopping for the week at my neighborhood Tops.  I headed for the exit which opens onto a relatively busy street.  I was thankful that the folks at Tops had thought this out and placed an "island" in the middle of the exit which directed vehicles to the right and placed a No Left Turn sign at the driveway as well to make our lives just a little bit easier and safer.  And there it was,  the car ahead of me at the exit had no turn signal on.
