I’ve never had a ‘black & white cookie’ and have only heard of them from Seinfeld, and this small cookie cafe on Market St in Corning was closed when I stumbled on it. So I still have no idea how good this delicacy may taste.

It has been too cold to go out bridge hunting - or any photo hunting - so this week, I am posting views from my trip to Corning New York from last summer. I remember seeing a sign in a shop window about “saving the Chemung Bridge” which I assume is the one above that is in need of repairs, but I haven’t been able to find anything about it. The first view includes the Bridge St bridge which was first posted here and another bridge seen from this one was posted here.

When Amaryllis fair doth show the richness of her fiery glow,
The modest Lily hides her head; the former seems so proudly spread
To win the gaze of human eye, which soonest brightest things doth spy.
Yet vainly is the honour won, since hastily her course is run;
she blossoms, blooms, -she fades, -she dies, -they who admired, now despise.

Many people have been fascinated by this beer vat crawl. There is a twitter site with almost1,000 followers even though the site is rarely updated. There are 6 of these monstrous vats that are 8 metres high and 45 metres long. They are making a long arduous journey from the Hamilton Port to the Molson Brewery near Toronto Airport. As you can see, hydro wires get in the way so they must be lifted and cut off until the convoy is safely through.
Originally planning on a 5 night trip, it is now expected to take 8 nights.

Yonge Street is a major north-south arterial road in Toronto and continues through Ontario for 1,896 kms. It was listed as the longest continuous street in the world until some government ruling rearranged the highway designations. But in our hearts, it is still a record street. It is the main east-west dividing line for Toronto and other towns immediately to the north.
