Pink Pig in Essex, New York

Pink Pig in Essex, New York

I think it is often the case, little Eastern towns, once major players in shaping early history but left in the dust of Manifest Destiny,come round again attaining glorious new heights when some event precipitates a chain-reaction. I-Pads, Phones and technology in general allow connectivity, in turn allowing Manhattanites- as an example- to live here -in the Great White North – at least part of the time. Clearly there is a ripple effect along the Adirondack Coast and it’s rousing little towns. (Ripples in Essex, NY)

Hats off to Linda Coffin who’s recent post on the Pink Pig Designer’s Blog dishes up a smorgasbord of Essex charm, snark and gossip. Meandering from the inviting window displays at the Pink Pig (and the eclectic assortment of offerings within) to the perils of driving in Essex without your seat belt fastened, Coffin’s post reads like a lighthearted chat over coffee with the perennially smiling Essex resident. And her observation about a revitalizing Adirondack Coast (and the Essex Renaissance in particular) is nowhere more apparent than the intersection of Rt. 22 and Main Street where Debbie Schrodt’s Pink Pig is percolating with energy, design inspiration and the enticing aroma of fresh java. Enjoy!

Do you recognize our fair hamlet on Lake Champlain? I shot this slightly fuzzy shot today from the Essex-Charlotte ferry while crossing the lake on an atypically balmy November day. It’s a little hard to believe that snow and ice and bone chilling winds are around the corner! Of course, Essex is charmed in all seasons and weather conditions, but today’s “Indian summer” is a full-on challenge to the calendar…

#ADK827 Update

Dino Dogan will present at #ADK827 in Essex, New York on Saturday, August 27.
Dino Dogan will present at #ADK827 in Essex, New York on Saturday, August 27.

I have a surprise addition to the #ADK827 Adirondack Region Social Media Meetup taking place in Essex, New York tomorrow:

Dino Dogan (@dino_dogan), the founder of Triberr (@Triberr), will be presenting at 1:30 PM in the Essex Inn dining room following the luncheon. Whether you’re new to social media or a seasoned veteran, Dino will stretch your skills and inspire your dreams! Dino’s DIY Blogger NET is a favorite go-to blog for online marketing, creative technology applications, social media pointers, creative web design tips and cutting edge social media resources and commentary. Triberr is an innovative platform for dilating the breadth and impact of your social media message.

Triberr is a reach multiplier which tweets your blog posts to not only your twitter followers but to all of your Tribe’s twitter followers too. (deepinmummymatters.com)

In addition to social media wonk, Dino describes himself as a “lousy mixed martial artist and a recovering network engineer, a pretty good singer/songwriter, trainer of dogs, and a blogger of biz…” In short, Dino’s just a regular guy who happens to understand the value and tools of social media a whole lot better than most regular guys. This is part of what makes him a great teacher and an inspiring speaker.

If you’re hoping to supercharge your social media skillset or if you’re still confused but curious about blogging, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Triberr, etc. you won’t want to miss Dino Dogan’s presentation. I look forward to seeing/meeting you tomorrow for the #ADK827 Adirondack Region Social Media Meetup taking place in Essex, New York. View the full schedule here.

1/1 Show (Photographic expressions by Jill Piper)

What are you doing at 4pm this afternoon? If you’re headed off to the Essex Inn to enjoy Jill Piper’s transcendent images, I look forward to seeing you. Oggling with you. Aaahhh-ing with you. Because that’s what you do face-to-face with Jill’s photographs!

If you didn’t know about the 1/1 Show in the Essex Inn Gallery Hall, now you do. Change your plans. Hurry, before it’s too late. Before you add another regret to the attic… Between four and six o’clock today Jill will be receiving the public and answering your questions: “Do you always have a camera with you?” “How long did you sit and wait for that mysterious lighting?” “Did you Photoshop that?” You may be surprised with her answers, but you’ll be mesmerized by her magical eye and her unassuming smile.

Don’t wait because this exhibition marks the first and last printing of many of Jill’s “photographic expressions”. See you soon!
