interesting cartographic anomaly.

Marble Hill's borders are defined by the course of the original Harlem River, which was also the northernmost end of Manhattan. In the 19th century, the Harlem River Ship Canal was constructed, but Marble Hill is still legally part of Manhattan. Marble Hill, including the MNR station, is still south of the original Harlem River (now buried), despite being on the north shore of the Harlem River Ship Canal. So that makes it as in the borders of Manhattan, legally, despite not being on the island of Manhattan.

i do hope not to notice daylight savings changes but the three things that have tripped me up this year are

1) clock on stove doesnt adjust automatically

2) champions league soccer games suddenly start at 4 pm instead of 3 pm

3) its fuckin still sunny at 647 pm all of a sudden

mostly steer clear of the endless clamor over musks twitter takeover though it has died down a little since his tesla investors told him to stfu. still, enjoying this roasting from a former employee who seems comfortable enough financially and infirmed enough not to give two fucks.

i want to feed into the stereotype that this sort of distinction is why jews made good lawyers but i imagine all religions have this absurd level of specificity. anyway just stumbled on this when someone posted something about an AI Rabbi because AI. i just read and exchange someone generated in AI with Mary I of England.

this pertains to  which prayer to say over bread as opposed to other grain-related offering like cake but the jewiness comes in what i guess are the endless debates over what constitutes what. i am actually familiar with "hamotzee" though honestly cannot recall seeing it in transliteration as it is part of a common prayer that one says before.... i guess eating a sabbath meal. this is not something we would do but it was probably part of breaking bread during any holiday meal celebration. 

Baruch ata Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha-olam, hamotzi lechem min ha'aretz. Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who has brought forth bread from the earth.

saw this victorian era cigarette card (the brand was based in rochester) which got me thinking about tins of loose tobacco i/we got when living in blue hill maine 30 years ago this summer. remembered the green tins but didnt have anything else to go on name-wise. even after seeing the tin it took a while for the name to click into place, three castles. was good stuff though almost too moist.
