Jazz Vocalist Susan Reeves: Dynamic, Bluesy, Soulful, Classy, Scintillating swing.

Her concert last night on the Green was marvelous! The only sad part was the small size of the audience.

Sunday strolling

In walking around our Graylyn block today, it was nice to see a neighbor with his kids ejoying the play equipment that's recently been upgraded. It was a surprise to see the signs on the construction "fence" - the orange plastic type - around the work being done to extend the paved path to the now-under-construction Southern Community Park. One says "CONSTRUCTION AREA - DO NOT ENTER", but it was the other that got my attention, "AREA UNDER 24 HOUR VIDEO SURVEILLANCE - VIOLATORS WILL BE PROSECUTED". Who knows if that's true, but it sure was enough to cause me not to cross the "line"! I also noted that the sale of one of the Graylyn houses has resulted in the removal of (for me) a big eye sore - one of those portable basketball backstops that never seems to move! It will take the grass a while to return, but it sure looks nice to be backstop-less. Another of our neighbors was playing the piano providing a lovely interlude as I walked by his house!

"Fish can fight malaria mosquitoes" - BBC News

Should we consider stocking our two ponds in Southern Village with these fish - not to combat malaria, but simply to combat the mosquitoes?

"WNYC Radio crowdsourcing project" -

What a great idea to deploy in Southern Village where SUVs seem to outnumber people most of the time in most places.
