Albert Einstein If you’re like me, you probably come across the same problem every nice day out: I want to be outside but I don’t know exactly what to do. Recently, I decided to visit somewhere that I pass by multiple times in a single […]

Mark Twain Since it’s Memorial Day, I figured it was appropriate to focus on one of the many memorials we have in the Capital Region. Across from the New York State Museum is the Women’s War Memorial to represent the women from New York State […]
