I’ve been doing this DelSo thing for what will be a full decade come December 9th. Wow. I don’t know how that happened, but, I’m also unclear how it is even possible that I will retire in less than 6 years. Boom. Just like that. Incredible! Over the years, I’ve written about lots of different … Continue reading DelSo & CivMix
Another four day weekend. Sort of.
While it may not have officially been a holiday weekend, it sure felt like one! It started on Thursday with the first Alive at Five for the season. I shot photos on a beautiful evening down by the Hudson for a Seen gallery and it didn’t matter at all that I knew no one present … Continue reading Another four day weekend. Sort of.
Mums the word – Mumford and Sons at the Times Union Center
Confession: three concerts in three nights nearly broke me. By the time Sunday morning rolled around last weekend, I was completely exhausted, but I couldn’t stop smiling.

Following an exceptionally fun Friday night out at an event in Albany, we were on the road before noon on … Continue reading Newport – a 1/2 marathon and a full weekend
Seen all over the TU
I had a pretty busy weekend. If you have any doubt of that, check out the timesunion.com homepage from earlier today. In the upper left hand corner, there's my Seen gallery from Friday night's Dave Matthews Band show at SPAC.

Let’s party like it’s 1999
Last night my soccer playing middle son and I went down to Wolff's Biergarten to take in the women's World Cup semi-final game. It was a great match up - #1 ranked Germany vs #2 USA and we, along with the majority of those present, were thrilled when our women were victorious with a final … Continue reading Let’s party like it’s 1999
