Smoke 'em if you got 'em ... but only until midnight tonight!

Tonight at midnight the statewide smoking ban goes into effect. It will be interesting to see if this has an effect on restaurants and bars -- such as the small ones in our neighborhood. As a frequenter of Koco's down Harford Road, I'm torn. I certainly don't want them to lose business, but, I will be glad to come home from dinner without everything I'm wearing smelling of smoke ...

What do think?

Your chance to see some great photography ends February 2

I know, I know, it's the Towson Arts Collective, but my colleague Edwin has a show there. And until we ever get our own art gallery here in Westfield (and to think, we were that close!) we'll have to travel elsewhere. (Click on the flyer above to enlarge it slightly)

It's snowing!

It will probably turn to rain before the day is over, which is all the more reason why you should go out and play in it while you can!

Mount Westfield! This is progress?

UPDATE: Yes -- update! The city crew came last night around 6 p.m. and hauled away our newest geographical landmark. So if you didn't come by to see Mount Westfield, I'm afraid your chance is gone now. All that's left is a patch of asphalt. No, I won't post a photo of that, don't worry.

Well, we all came home from work last night to Christopher Avenue shut off and no water in our homes. I don't know what time the work crew started digging, but they had a big hole in the street at 5:30 when I got home. The water came back on about 8 p.m.

Anyone want to put a wager on when they will come back and finish the job?

H a p p y N e w Y e a r

As we usually do, my wife and i stayed home for new years eve. had our usual feast of shrimp and buffalo wings, and tried to keep our sanity while worrying about our kids out celebrating. They lost interest in our quiet little evening home years ago. We decided to take a late night walk with the new puppy and see what was going on in our neighborhood for the new year. It seems that it's rather quiet on these streets on new years eve. It appeared that most of our neighbors stay home as well and many in bed already. It was nice to have the usual fireworks displays going off all around us and then back to a peaceful evening. Even Valentinos seemes rather slow. but i guess they get busy when the bars close.
HAPPY NEW YEAR , everyone. may 2008 bring us all and our neighborhood of westfield good fortune.
