Oh, and at the risk of getting a tad political...there are strong numbers of people with concerns about the risk to our wonderful outdoors posed by Fracking.

This weekend there were THREE rallies to express those concerns in Greene, Oxford and Norwich. Private SparkMail me and I will send you info on how to join our ranks...yet another way to connect with others!

If one is careful you can find some WONDERFUL people and activities out there...believe it or not...REALLY, it's true! :-)

Here are a couple of ideas:

1) Every Tues. night from 7:30 to who-knows-when, there are very positive, accepting, supportive folks who get together for good clean, smoke-free, alcohol-free fun courtesy of the Southern Tier Swing Dance Society:

www.stnyswingdance.com/

They get together upstairs at Rexer's Karate Studio on Washington Ave. in Endicott across from the Endicott Performing Arts Center. A night of fun will set you back only $3 and they are VERY newbie friendly...you don't have to know a thing about dancing to have a terrific time!

2) VERY soon now folks are gonna be cutting loose on their bicycles and you just can't find a better crowd than the Southern Tier Bicycle Club! They are riding ALL the time in good weather:

www.southerntierbicycleclub.org/

Again, newbies are welcome...VERY excellent people here!

3) While I have not been a member, I have heard really excellent things also about our Triple Cities Hiking Club:

www.triplecitieshikingclub.org/

I think the absolute BEST thing about our area are the great outdoors and the people who revel in and savor our outdoors and there are many, many more out there than you may think!

Ok.... Lets face it.... Binghamton is not a huge area. It is not a hoping area. It is not a good job area. It is not a safe area. And the area is full of homeless, and poor; Managed by people more concerned with hydrofracking and conviction than education and under-privileged programs. It has some of the most qualified health-care in the surrounding area but is slacking in mental health.... regardless of the programs.... Does anyone know anything FUN in the area? That is enriching, educational, inspirational, and eventful?
