Well I spent waaay too much time being 'webmaster' this morning. And as usual, there's little to show for it that's obvious to the rest of the world. But I spent the first two-and-a-half hours of my day doing back-end "stuff" for RiverheadLocal and some of the other sites we manage. Whew.
But I did manage to post our "Reluctant Gardener" column by Laurie Nigro, in which she explains the lesson she learned from 50 lbs. of cucumbers. It's a funny piece. And it comes with another great recipe. Thank you, Laurie. Enjoy!
Now I'm dashing off to the Farm Bureau's "Breakfast with the Congressman," an annual get-together wherein our the congressman sits down with local farmers to report on the doings in DC and hear from them about their concerns. (Try to contain your excitement.) But I will be reporting on it (quite dutifully) from the Farm Bureau's Calverton office. Actually, this is the kind of thing a wonk like me really loves.
There's a heck of a lot going on around town today. Check out our calendar of events for the full scoop.
One thing happening today that's near and dear to my heart is opening night of the Blue Masques' "West Side Story"— and not just because it's one of my all-time favorite shows. It's got some really awesome young actors in it, some of whom feel like family. Come to think of it, one of them is famiy. :)
So, break a leg, Jets & Sharks!
Oops. I almost forgot: The winner of our Blue Waves Spirit contest....
.... The Whitehead residence in Aquebogue!
