It's that time of year when maple trees in the northeast get tapped for their sap, and today we visited a sugar house in Greenwich, NY. Sugar Mill Farm hosted a pancake breakfast and offered tours and insight into the whole operation. This picture shows their sugar house "in full steam." Did you know it takes 40 gallons of sap to yield 1 gallon of maple syrup?? And boy, is it good!

Don't know whether you caught the American Kennel Club dog show on TV (or live?) recently, but even if you did, you wouldn't have seen this icy breed. He was part of an ice sculpture at the recent Chowderfest in Saratoga Springs, NY. Even in the sunshine, it was cold enough for him to stay poised. What a beautiful day and a tasty event!
