LOL Allen! Because people assume NYC if not stated otherwise and there is a world of difference....

I agree, Redrider. My sister lived in Saugerties for a long time, and it is night and day different from NYC. Vineyards, excellent and plentiful finger lakes, Hunter Mountain, etc. You won't be mining a lot of Herkimer Diamonds in Manhatten.

Exactly. They want to make sure you know they are NOT from NYC.

Yes, we're very quick to explain exactly what "upstate" New York means to Nyer's. Most people think anywhere above New York city is "upstate." When in fact there's "central" New York, "western" New York, Catskills region, etc...Upstate is pretty much anything above Syracuse, NY....Fort Drum is about 30 minutes from the Canadian border. Anyway, you really should visit. New York State as a whole is quite diverse and a very beautiful place to live....if you can stand the cold, snowy winters..

I come by this thread everyday and read the posts and try to absorb so many dead.
It makes me sad and to think of mothers who lost children in this war.

But there is also chatting about other topics which can be very interesting.

Re: Upstate New York
One summer, 18 or 19 years ago we sent our daughter to summer camp in Upstate NY. It was about an hour from Lake Placid. The camp was six weeks and they had Parents Day for the middle of summer camp. My husband and I stayed in Lake Placid but took day trips We had such a great time and the pace of life is not NYC.Everybody was very friendly. I would love to go back for another vacation. It was very cool and lots of little streams and picnic tables. It would be a wonderful respite from the Florida's summer oven. There is no real point to this story, just to say we love Upstate NY. And I am a Southern gal.

Number Of Iraqi Civilians Slaughtered In America's War On Iraq - At
Least 655,000 + +

The War in Iraq Costs
$409,052,121,231

See the cost in your community

A Nation in Ruins

2,000,000 Iraqis now live outside Iraq, according to UNHCR

12,000 doctors have fled Iraq since the war began. Another 2,000 are said to have been killed, and at least 250 kidnapped

50% Average inflation in 2006, according to the World Bank

6.3 hours of electricity daily in Baghdad in December 2006. In May 2003 there were 16-24 hours

32 percentage of people in Iraq with drinkable water

3,700,000 Iraqis now receive food aid from the UN World Food Programme

16% Proportion of Iraqis who said in January that their income meets their basic needs

And for this we need to send:

an additional 21,500 combat troops to be sent to Iraq. But the figure has since crept up to nearly 30,000, with 2,200 military police being added. To have 160,000 troops there.

Do all the native Iraqis have to leave and join the other 2,000,000 that have left? Is that when we can declare victory?

Gina, This is good information. It is so horrific to think about.
I guess nobody's home in Wash. D.C.
It is just overwhelming and I keep thinking "how did we let this happen?"

Put on your party hats everyone and blow up the balloons. Today is the 4th anniversary of this war. And as the people begin to question the wisdom of the whole thing, the statistics of those injured and dead are being lowered daily.....well, that is excpet for the Iraqis....they're still dying on a regular basis.
