Home for me has always been in upstate NY in the Finger Lakes region. I lived there for 62 years working, raising a family and enjoying summers on the lakes. It is an area that has seen very little change over the years when compared to other locations in the country. To me, that is the special charm of the area. It has a rich history of wine making, and vineyards cover the hillsides to supply grapes to the numerous wineries located around all of the lakes. Many of the farms are owned by the Amish who can be seen working the fields with their team of horses. It is a place that is surround by quiet countrysides, friendly hard working people, and quaint small towns, Even though I moved away two years ago, it is still my home.
