How about near Western New York across the Canadian border? It's the best I can do. :)

Actually, almost exactly 1/2 way betweeen Albany and Binghamton on I-88. We used to go out to Keuka Lake (Penn Yan) to a cousin's cottage as a summer getaway when I was a kid. Nice area out there. I LOVE Bully Hill Wine!

I think I was thinking of Oneida, some of the Indian names get confusing.

Bully Hill is great as a number of other area wines. We are near Naples and they have a wonderful Grape festival every year. I have been told the Italians found it to be much like Italy when they came here and the climate is great for the grape. If I am ever able to take day trips again I would like to do a wine tour myself, there are trains that have recently started runs in season with blues music that sound like fun. I've lived all over the country and upstate NY is one of the prettiest and cheapest places I have lived, as long as you don't mind the NY taxes. Hard to make non NYers understand sometimes that all of NY is not NYC.

Where was your picture taken? It is really pretty, is it the Catskills?

My husband and I are both from Syracuse--our families are still there. We used to have family picnics at Keuka Lake years ago--my mom's family also has people in Owego and Auburn.

Ravenwood--you're so right about how beautiful it is up there--especially this time of year.

I've been to the grapefest in Naples...never knew you could/would make a grape pie!

NY/NYC - uh huh!

Pic is from the Catskills last year. I prefer the Adirondacks (call me a mountain snob! :lol: ), but the Catskills are closer (and easier on the knees!).

This is kind of off the topic--but it happened in Syracuse :D And has to do with grapes....

My ex-sister in law <_< once made a "blueberry" pie and brought it to a family dinner. At the time, she was new to the group, so we were all on our best behavior. Anyway, we begin to eat the pie, and crunched into all these little seeds--unexpected because we were thinking blueberries! And you could tell no one wanted to say anything!!

The nut had mistakenly bought grapes instead :blink: --it actually had a good taste, but that texture left a lot to be desired :lol:

One of my ex-girlfiends (a nut herself) pulled a similar stunt with cherries in a cherry pie. She didn't pit them...Ouch

i love niagara on the lake, but can do without the falls. some 'hidden' parts are nice. i live on the canadian side, though. the american side, in my opinion, is really grungy. although i am sure there are hidden parts on there i dont know, too.

Hi and welcome to the board :D Always great to meet a fellow Central New Yorker B)

I'm glad you found a doctor who will listen and work with you--you're right, that's half the battle right there! Yes, read up on the recipes and the products forums--lots of great info there. Good luck on the tests, and feel free to post with any questions you might have. Last year was my first gluten-free, so I know that the holidays can be successfully done on the diet.

Let us know how your tests come out :)

Don't know NY very well, I am originally from Toronto, but now live about 1 hr east of Toronto. The only time I have been to NY is when I played baseball. We used to play tournaments on the weekend, and after playing 3 games on a Saturday, we would go home, shower and change and then drive down to Buffalo to party for the night at a place called "The Library". We had designated drivers so the rest of us could have a blast. We would get home around 3 a.m. and be up at 6:00 a.m. to play a 7:00 a.m. game!!!! Ahhhhh, those were the days!

The only other thing I am aware of in NY is my niece goes to university there, in Ithaca, NY. Anyone near there?

Hugs.

Karen

I'm live in upstate, Saratoga NY. About 30 min north of Albany.

Welcome!

That's a great area. I used to live in Albany - absolutely LOVE hiking in the Adirondacks!

Hi all, I am from Conklin, NY. Did anyone else get hit by the June flood. Boy it is hard being gluten-free in a FEMA trailer. Major break out of DH going on and it is miserable. Almost back in the house though
