JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #102: Carriage Dogs

So this is Christmas? Well, at least Monday is. Dang -- Monday. I should probably get some shopping done ... just kidding. Sorry to you folks who don't have QuickTime (stupid plugin popups!) but for the rest of you, enjoy the clip from Babe -- just click on the picture.

Let's see ... Winter starts at 8:37am today. Hanukkah starts tomorrow, so get your butts out there at sunset at 4:38pm today. Likewise, for Hasidic Pagans, Hakkunah starts tomorrow; the moon sets today at 2:20pm. Kwanza starts on the 26th.

On an unrelated note, I went to see Nuts and Bolts last Sunday but missed the show because I got there too late. Unfortunately, they won't be out again until February 16.
