Amy's Place Patron Donations Used to Adopt Two Turkeys!

This year start a new tradition, with donations from Amy's Place two turkeys, so far, have been adopted through Farm Sanctuary's "Turkey Express Adoption Event." For $30 you can adopt any one of six turkeys available for the event. You can also sponsor a turkey for a small monthly donation, and there are many turkeys to choose from should you decide to do that. You can sponsor any animal on the farm, in fact, and in doing so, you can schedule special tours just to meet and enjoy that animals company. I just returned from a volunteer party at the shelter, and was thrilled to spend extra time with both Brooklyn, an older goat, rescued after being found wandering the streets in, you guessed it, Brooklyn NY.

Airmail - Made In Buffalo - 1873

  Perhaps the most enigmatic of all American stamps, the "Buffalo" balloon stamp is certainly among the premier rarities in aerophilately. This stamp begs the question, “What is an airmail stamp?” Described variously as “experimental,” “semi-official,” “a carrying label,” and even as a vignette or cinderella, the fact remains that it was the first of its kind ever issued. Since it was privately issued for use with a standard U.S. postal service 3-cent stamp to pay for air handling of a mailed piece, it was (if one includes both private and government issues) the world’s first airmail stamp.

No Ahab, This Poet Lands Her Catch

A Literary Event Sponsored by Talking Leaves Books

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- On Thursday, November 4, at 7 p.m., poet Sherry Robbins will be reading from her collection of poems, “or, The Whale,” newly published by Buffalo’s BlazeVox Press.

Robbins has been an anchor in the Western New York literary world for over 30 years, as writer, teacher, publisher, mentor and friend. For a good chunk of this time, she’s been wrestling with “or, the Whale,” a book-length sequence of poems that engage Herman Melville’s Moby Dick.

Books will be available for purchase; the reading and book signing is free and open to the public.

How to Make Your Car Last Forever: Auto Q&A with Tom Torbjornsen

Dear Tom,

I own a ’02 Ford Focus that came with one key when I bought it (used). When I went to get a second key made I was told that they couldn't make a key for it because it had a “transponder” and I would need to get one from a dealer. This is expensive! Is this absolutely necessary or is there another way to get a key?
