Any area the goes north of the Bronx in New York City gets to be called, "Upstate". Caramoor Center for Music is located in Katonah. Perfect place to have tea and a tour of the Rosen House. Mercedes will tell us about it.
Red Hook is just outside of Rhinebeck. I stayed at Red Hook Inn, a most enjoyable place. Fresh eggs from the chickens, a delicious breakfast and two rooms that are accessible with a roll-in shower. Unusual for a B&B to have. Pat will talk about the inn and the great breakfast!

First I better check the map to make sure I take the right turn off. OK I think I’m ready to go. Wait a minute, one more look at the map just to be sure. What was I thinking, maybe if I hold it this way I’ll remember? Well let’s just get going and figure out on the road.
Hmmm, this just somehow doesn’t look right…..Better pull over and check the map again.
Finally on the right track to Wat Rong Khun or “The White Temple”. Even though people refer to it as a temple it’s not really that at all. More exhibit than temple the artist who created and funded it’s completion Chalermchai Kositpipat, believes the white temple is an offering to Lord Buddha and we’ll ensure him an immortal life.
When you first enter the area where the main building or ubosot is located you are immediately confronted with the weakness of human desire, greed and temptation symbolized by hundreds of outreaching hands. Crossing the bridge over the small lake takes you to the gate of heaven where you are met by two creatures who decide the fate of the dead. Make it past there and the countless tourists with selfie sticks and you arrive at the ubosot made with fragments of glass in the style of a traditional Thai 3 tiered roof temple.
Photography is prohibited inside the main building which features murals with cultural icons like Michael Jackson, and fictitious characters including Freddy Kruger, Harry Potter and Hello Kitty. As well as scenes depicting nuclear war and terrorist attacks. If the intent is to highlight what’s wrong with the world the artist has made his point with this exhibit.

I am a personal development coach. I have been coaching as a hobby for a while and decided to become serious about it when I saw talented, skilled and resourceful, people doubt themselves and not give themselves or their dreams a chance. I started my own business shortly after someone I cared about took their own life. This person, like many others, wanted to travel and see the world but was held back by their own demons.
I've had enough of sitting by the sidelines and not doing something MORE ACTIVE to shake people out of their slumps. I want your listeners to know they can go out there make it happen for themselves, in way that makes sense for THEM. "Travel" can seem so huge to those thirsty for it. I want these folks to know that that shouldn't stop them. That it is something that is oh-so-doable, and that they can do it in a way that is unique to their needs. The clients I have coached with this issue are now some of my most daring clients. I would love to bring that to your listeners.
Take more than a vacation now!
