My fiance and I are getting married on July 10th of this year. We're having a bit of a hard time finding an officiant, as the town clerk that we wanted to use is out on medical leave, and the only other people we have been able to find are catholic priests. Does anyone have a reccomendation for an officiany in the Albany/Schenectady area?

Donations for our Troops?
Does anyone know of any places locally that are accepting donations of various things for our troops for this Christmas? My work is trying to organize a donation drive and I'd like to try to contact a place locally to see if we can bring our donations to them.
Thanks in advance!

Does anyone know of a place in the area that does Clam Bakes? I know Langoliers(sp?) does, but we are also looking for a place that does other menu options as well (we have some people who don't like seafood and/or who are vegitarians). I've done a couple online searches and can't find anything.

Listing of New York Senators on the Fence or Opposed to Gay Marriage
20 senators publicly stated their support for equal marriage, 32 are needed to pass the bill. Please check this list
and contact your state senator and urge them to support marriage equality for all couples.
Marriage is a civil rights issue, nobody should be denied the 1,800 state and federal benefits that come with marriage, such as the right to visit a loved one in a hospital, file joint tax returns, co-adopt kids, and many other rights and privileges enjoyed by heterosexual couples.
March on Albany
Liberty Starts Here... Again!
From the success of the April 15th Tax Day Tea Parties, comes the first statewide Tea Party that will soon be replicated across the country. Join us on Tuesday, June 16th in Albany in front of the NY State Capitol.
Details: http://www.marchonalbany.com http://www.albanyteaparty.com
RSVP here and on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=106076666977&ref=ts
Spread the Flyer: http://www.marchonalbany.com/flyer.pdf
People are bussing in from all over (NYC, LI, Syracuse, Rochester, Binghamton, etc), and will have signs and t-shirts that show where they are from. This is the first of many statewide tea parties across the country, and the theme is Liberty Starts Here...Again. It will focus on NYS government, and the Campaign for Liberty will have a table and presence there. We will be collecting petitions for HR 1207, The Federal Reserve Transparency Act, and will have Constitutions and Campaign for Liberty literature to handout.
Bring your Campaign for Liberty or Ron Paul T-Shirts, Audit the Fed signs, and let's show NYS that freedom is alive and well in NY.
Contest for Free Website!
Hey there all!
I stumbled upon this contest. A local company in Troy, Belwo, is having a contest for small companies/local businesses that reside within a 60 mile radius of Troy, NY zip 12180. On their (Belwo's) website, you can submit all of you business ideas and why you think your company deserves a FREE WEBSITE (I believe they create it for you and host it for a year...?).
It sounds cool and I wanted to pass on the idea to all of you. You have to go to there website for all of the rules and details. I hope this is interesting or helpful for some of you guys.

Please support Gay Marriage, if you would!
Please pass this on.Maine.
Maybe New Hampshire.
Let's make New York next!
The New York Times says it's dicey in the state Senate.
Republicans have been cut loose to vote their conscience.
I have written to my senator and four in nearby districts.
Will you do the same.
Find you senator here.

I was seen at a dental place called AllCare in Colonie yesterday. I need a root canal, which they cannot do there. I originally wanted to go to a dental clinic in Troy, but they told me they most likely cannot do a root canal. (They use a sliding scale as far as pay depending on what you make, since I don't have insurance.) The AlLCare dentist recommended a Thomas Doolittle in Albany, does anyone know of him or if he is expensive? Or does anyone know of an inexpensive dental facility that will do root canals on either a sliding scale or will work with you on payment options? It doesn't have to be in Albany - I live in Mechanicville and work in Clifton Park, so anywhere in the area really.

Tiny Kitten needs a home!
From my friend Nat in Saratoga:
So my little brother Warren (such a hero) found this little kitty in middle of the Saratoga National Parking lot in the pouring rain/snow yesterday (Tuesday the 28th)! it was so cold it was almost dead, covered with fleas and just pitiful. It looked like a old stuffed toy someone tossed out. We think someone just left him there. He is so sweet and cuddly! He is about 6 weeks old, Male, white with orange spots five toes, and a pretty pretty face! Anyways we took this sweet sweet little kitty to Hearthstone Veterinary Hospital on route 29. They are fixing him up! and he is looking for a loving forever home.We talked about keeping him but the cat we have is about 16yrs old and soo not a sharing his family cat... it would hurt him if we brought another male kitty home so if you are interested here is the info
826 Route 29
Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
