    Jakes in Hillcrest

    I heard Jake had some "bitch" on the side! I guess it makes sense, seeing how "Jake" is the owner's german shepherd. For whatever reason this guy closed, I agree that the place seems to have "the kiss of death" for business....been that way since the late '70's....I believe it was a Dairy Queen back then.

    Where were you???

    I was in the 3rd grade at Abraham Lincoln School on Vestal Ave. when the principal, Marjorie Bush, got on the PA system and told us of the shooting, and sent us home. I remember everyone crying (myself included) as we walked home that day. The following week, ALL 3 channels pre-empted regular programming as we watched everything (in B&W of course), from the initial reports at Parkland, Ruby shooting Oswald on live TV, through to the somber funeral procession with the boot turned backward in the horse's stirrup and JFK Jr, saluting. The rest is a blur other than not liking Walter Cronkite's voice right up until he retired and "What's the frequency Kenneth?" replaced him. Where were you???

    Old Ames Building on Upper Front Street

    I've always been under the understanding that the owner of the paperback book store IS the owner of the whole plaza. Unless things have changed (that was years ago) , she retired down south somewhere.

    Garo For Grand Visier Of Binghamton!!!

    I've got no complaints or issues with Garo.....I generally like him. I was just pointing out that I had to take a leak and he didn't have a bathroom! However, I'm pretty sure one of those cars parked out in front of his "corporate suite" ( as you call it) was there back in 1977 when I lived on Colfax Avenue and used to walk by on my way to work at GAF. I could double-check with the other guys on my shift, but they've all died of old age, except for Hojsik...he died last year from a heart attack.

    Garo For Grand Visier Of Binghamton!!!

    I doubt it. Last I knew, his place on Clinton Street didn't have a bathroom. I had to go across the street ( I think it was DLord's place) to take a leak!

    So, now honest posts are deleted?

    What our parents taught us still holds truetoday. Never discuss religion or politics. I never have, UNLESS the political candidate reminds me of Miss Piggy or the discussion is about Muslims from Detroit, or Paramus, New Jersey!

    online colleges

    I was looking into it with The University of Phoenix. Spent about 5 hours on the phone with a counselor for 3 days, "tailoring" a Batchelors's program in literature for me. Unfortunately, the tuition cost per year was close to 5 figures. I thanked her for her time and told her to put me at the bottom of her "follow-up list"....way to expensive. It took me 6 years at BCC to earn an Associate's part time, I can do the same on the Vestal Parkway much cheaper!
