Scotia's A WInter Delight!

I've referred to our town as something directly copied from a Norman Rockwell SAturday Evening Post cover.

And it is! Our main thoroughfare, Mohawk Avenue, is shopping the old fashioned way--harking back to a day when you knew every merchant and you shopped a half-dozen stores on any given Saturday. Now I'm all for convenience, but it is a pleasure to deal with knowledgeable merchants rather than flustered department store clerks.

Above left, the Scotia Fire Department occupies the front of the Town Hall/Town Clerk/POlice Department building on Ten Broeck Street and Mohawk Avenue. The Village Paint Store is right alongside.

Above right, Mohawk Avenue looking west from the sidewalk in front of Golden Dragon Chinese Restaurant. Left, far. The biggest office building in Scotia! Near left, the Methodist Church on Mohawk Avenue. Below right, a snowy residential street. Kids ride their sleds here, but most often it's the hill in Collins Park that reigns supreme in local snow legend.

The Trustco Bank building. Come on, you just know you're going to get personal service in our local branch!


The Classic Guitar Method: Now in one volume, much of what the novice classical guitarist will need to know to lead him or her to the recital stage. From proper instrument care and maintenance to the necessary technical skills, musical mind-set, and the standard repertoire—all exposed and explored with enough detail and insight that the student will wish to keep this book handy years to come as a ready reference source.

With the aid of a good teacher, the student will rapidly progress through The Classic Guitar Method attaining technical proficiency and musical eloquence.

This method stems from the need to incorporate a number of schools into a single cohesive curriculum. Years of honing a logical approach to the guitar and the creation of music culminate in this volume. As a self-proclaimed Disciple of Valdés-Blain , much of that famed teacher's focus can be found in Mr. Pellegrin's method.

The Scotia Cinema. Small on the outside, a little bigger on the inside. This is a neighborhood movie house of the old school. The whole family gets in and has popcorn for less than twenty bucks.    
First runs? Sooner than you'd expect! Tours of the projection room can even be arranged.      
  We moved here in 1993 and are still 'newcomers' though we are accepted by all!    
  This is a great town in which to live if you're an author!
