Buddha Since it’s summer time, a time for beautiful weather (hopefully) and vacations I felt it was time to touch on a few places in the go-to location in the 518, Lake George. Luckily for me, I’ve had family or friends who have had a […]

My Big Fat Greek Wedding I know on Wednesday I usually write about local blogs I’ve come across to share with everyone. This Wednesday I’m going to change things up a smidge. I just realized I still had not written about St. Sophia’s Greek Festival, one […]
