"The Pittsford Perennialist" No More

With the new year comes a new name, gone is the lovely image above, from just down the road, and so is the "Quotebar" preserved below, to be replaced by quotes and images of some regional luminaries:
    "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." — Benjamin Franklin

    "I had rather be shut up in a very modest cottage with my books, my family and a few old friends, dining on simple bacon, and letting the world roll on as it liked, than to occupy the most splendid post, which any human power can give." — Thomas Jefferson

    "This used to be a hell of a good country." — George Hanson played by Jack Nicholson in Easy Rider (1969)

    "Those old songs are my lexicon and prayer book. All my beliefs come out of those old songs, literally, anything from 'Let Me Rest On That Peaceful Mountain' to 'Keep On The Sunny Side.' You can find all my philosophy in those old songs. I believe in a God of time and space, but if you ask me about that, my impulse is to point them back towards those songs." — Bob Dylan

The focus will be the same, with a continued focus on the Burned-Over District in which I grew up and its water's influence on how I observe the country and the world.
