Walk-in the park – northern end of Skaneateles
Southern end of Skaneateles

That pic doesn’t do justice to the view.

The finger lake region is a stunner in the fall and this year was a memorable one from a color standpoint.

I think of the amazing color years as a drive thru a bowl of fruit loops… If you ever get a chance, drive NY 17 (now I86) between Wurtsboro and Binghamton. On a good year the colors are amazing. If you have time drive 97 from Port Jervis to Hancock… Motorcycle or convertible is recommended.

They had tons of displays. Some were really fun / funny.
Mantis hanging out in the morning sun by the garage getting ready for winter I guess.

Some of those were funnier when jay potated them.

Back to the grind friends o’ mine.

Winter has set in – 4 inches yesterday and feet projected for later in the week…. in buffalo at least.

The Poat where we explore the various forms of Metal Music

Sobek usually does an excellent job explaining the history and styles of classical music. I will not be doing that today. I am going to tip our collective toes into the most important style of music out today.


We will not wander lost in the metal desert any longer, as I attempt to introduce you into into a few of it’s various forms.

The term “heavy metal” apparently springs from a Steppenwolf song from the 60’s. In the tune everyone knows “Born to Be Wild” the line “heavy metal thunder” – and thus a genre was created. Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath are considered the first of the “metal” bands (although Zeppelin has a lot of blues in it), from these Godfather’s of metal we now have a whole wide array to choose from. Avant-garde metal, black metal, celtic metal, death metal, doom metal, Gothic metal, Grindcore, Hair metal (the worst them all), Metalcore, Nu-Metal, Power Metal, Progressive metal (the greatest of all forms), Thrash metal, and then who knows how many more will appear.
