The Big "Chill"

For the second weekend running, I'll be heading up to the iconic Sagamore Hotel in Bolton Landing, NY for the final days of the "Glacier Ice Bar" and other surrounding chilly events will be happening. I'll be covering the final weekend on behalf of the Warren County Board of Tourism.


You can read about my impressions of last year's event at "Visit Lake Geoge,"  and keep following me here and on the "Visit Lake George" blog for news about this years festival. I'll also be checking out the Funky Ice Fest at the Adirondack Pub & Brewery in Lake George Village, as well as visiting the retail shops and restaurants in Bolton Landing as they welcome shoppers and diners to the second annual "Bolton on Ice."

So, stay tuned for more "ice, ice, baby!"

I quickly realized that the party of four would have to include myself - so, right from the get go, I was screwing myself out of one amazing guest. Not that I don’t consider myself a stellar addition to any dinner party! But, lets face it. If it’s between me and Oprah or me and Gandhi – what would you do?
Exactly! Have two dinner parties? Well, sure. That’s a great solution! Better yet, have a round dinner table and then it doesn’t matter if there’s an odd number of people – Yes!

And so, without further ado, here is my dinner party guest list.

I Hate My Bathroom - Part I

I want to talk about bathrooms – specifically, bathrooms that are affectionately referred to by realtors, designers and remodelers as “vintage” or “mid-century.” We all know that “mid-century” can be loosely translated to mean a sickening shade of mustard yellow, avocado or salmon pink, with tile everywhere – and I don’t mean cool subway tile or the currently trendy thin rectangular-shaped tiles.

This is the kind of bathroom that I’ve been living with for the last four years.

I know it didn’t always look this way. My cozy little home is nearly 140 years old, and I’m sure my predecessors were thrilled about remodeling and turning the loo into a cutting-edge model of modern decorating chic – back in the 1960’s, that is.

As you can see, the entire bathroom was green – more specifically, it was various shades of green. I can only surmise that there were clearance sales at the tile store and the home appliance store at the same time. The tub and sink were an interesting sort of seafoam gr…
