Tuesday, a lot of ticket holders for tonight's Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra concert at Carnegie Hall were invited to a party at CNN's studios.
It was actually CNN's cafeteria. And it has a great view, pictured above in a picture ably snapped by BPO communications director Susan Schwartz.
"What a great view that is," Buzz fell into the habit of saying, buying time as we scribbled in our notebook.
Then we said it to the wrong person! This Buffalonian, who does not want to be named, met our "What a great view" comment with a dismissive shrug.
"You should see my view," she snapped. She went on to discuss her home in Buffalo -- "It's like you're looking out at the countryside" -- and her home in Florida.
Then Buzz began bragging about the view from The News' cafeteria.
"You see grain elevators, and the river, and --"
We couldn't help it!
That is the Buffalo way. Nobody has it better than we do.
Buzz went window shopping in Kaisertown and saw this sweet sight in a Clinton Street shop. It is a Kaisertown Ode to Spring!
How much is that Tyskie in the window?
That Tyskie is a penny or two!

Or this one ...

The Tonawanda whale of a sale Buzz just reported on got us thinking of the other Tonawanda whale -- the Big Blue Whale car wash!
That whale was there when Buzz was a little kid and we used to beg our dad to take the car through it. The whale's name was Willie. We never knew that!
We are not the only one affectionate toward that whale. This scholarly Flickr page has pictures and letters -- click on them -- that were published about the whale over the years. Buzz got a kick out of a letter from a Tonawanda killjoy who found it "monstrous, ugly and completely distasteful." Hahahahaa!
Alas, the Save the Whale campaign failed.
And you wonder why so many cars are dirty this time of year.
This is why!

You have to marvel, walking into Mulberry Italian Ristorante in Lackawanna.
The ceiling is covered with red and white and silver Christmas ornaments!
At first Buzz thought they were ahead of the curve on Valentine's Day, but no, these were Christmas ornaments, so kudos and a big wassail to Mulberry for keeping that holiday cheer coming. It does look as if the colors will carry nicely over into St. Valentine's Day. For St. Patrick's Day and St. Joseph's Day they might have to rethink things.
Which begs the big question ...
