Welcome to the Finger Lakes! Our theme song:

In a town this size, there's no place to hide
Everywhere you go, you meet someone you know...
In a smokey bar, in the backseat of your car
In your own little house, someone's sure to find you out
What you do and what you think
What you eat and what you drink...

Another one bites the dust

Cutting back on trade shows?

The sun isn't shining on solar panel manufacturers this week.  More "green jobs" prove to be economically unsustainable:
Solar manufacturer Solon said yesterday it will close a solar panel factory in Arizona in response to intense global competition on prices.
The Germany-based company said it will phase out a Tucson panel facility by October, cutting 60 jobs in the process. Instead, Solon will focus its product development efforts on designing and building large-scale solar installations using panels from different makers.
This announcement follows yesterday's Evergreen Solar bankruptcy.
