Wow, it’s been a long time since the last installment; too long. Let’s see… what happened?

York Staters sent a signal from the great beyond after an ominous two-month silence. See here for a welcome explanation.

Simon at Living in Dryden got married – congratulations to him and his new bride! He’s now returned to blogging.

BuffaloPundit got a complete facelift, and is now part of WNYMedia.net, which I think it always was, but I’m not sure. I like the color scheme, but miss the Buffaloey look of the previous design.

Steve at Clean Up Syracuse passes along this short film about urban cowboys and suggests that Syracuse needs the same. Somewhat more involved than Litter Ninjas but you get the picture. (Like I said a couple weeks ago — it’s good to see Forty Belowers stripping their shirts off. Ahem.)

A meaty post from Roch-a-Cha Rant about school bus services (or lack thereof) for Rochester city students. He touches on a teen brawl at the city center and asks what people are really buying with the dollars they think they’re saving by getting rid of yellow buses for all. (Teen brawls downtown have recently become a sore subject in Syracuse as well.)

Lastly… I keep coming back to this blog and am mightily impressed by the way it just keeps going and going: The Invisible Flood Blog. Lest we forget… we’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of the Great Upstate Flood of 2006. If I was giving out blogging awards I would definitely consider this one for its topicality, informative value, and persistence.
