Rochester is a heavy agricultural district known for corn, melons, cabbage, apples and cherries. We live on the edge of a huge apple orchard and our son used to get money in summers working in the orchard picking fruit.

No need to worry about inexpensive carbs! We have plenty here. Fruit and vegetable stands about every mile with some of the finest corn you can eat. And, thank God, no drought here. Just some erratic rain.

In Rochester you can get chicken wings like they were intended to be prepared, beef on weck and white hots.

Consider "spaghetti with "out" sauce". :whistling:

And spaghetti with oil (or butter), cheap vermouth and bacon crumbles makes a nearly authentic Italian dish. A little garlic powder and some grated cheese! Mmmmm.

I had days like this as a 2nd Lt. in the AF and then as a grad student. Come to think of it, in the early days at EK it wasn't easy either.

Good luck. I grew up in Rochester a few blocks from the Eastman house. I still miss the city at times, even though I'm very happy where I'm at. There's just something that feels "right" about Rochester to me (but it's not the lack of sun in the winter).

How's the skiing in the east? Where's closest/best place from Rochester? I've gotten pretty used to an annual ski trip to the Rockies, but I think this year it's gonna be in the Appalachians!

There are 3 or 4 great skiing resorts within about 30 miles of Rochester. In the winter, they show skiing condition updates live on the news.

Yes Holmburgers,
I wish you the very best in upstate N.Y. I was born and raised in N.Y.C. and places "upstate" were as foreign to me as Nepal. Sudying under Ron sounds exciting (I mean intelectualy, not sexualy). Chemical photography will see a rebirth, after all circuitry on Earth is wiped out via sunspots, or Atomic detination in the atmosphere. It can happen!

Whiteface!! Largest vertical in the East. Only a few hours drive from Rochester to Lake Placid, NY - home of the Miracle on Ice

That had to be clarified?:eek:
:blink:

Sounds like the long stretch around here of hot, humid days over 100 degrees finally got to ya, Bill.:whistling:;)

Fantastic -- the bravery to pick up and physically move towards your dreams will echo through every part of your life. Best of luck, and enjoy the time with your mentors!

I visited Rochester about a month ago. I have a cousin that lives there with her husband. Great place, awesome diners for breakfast. We also went to the grape festival, there was wine tastings and tons of food like BBQ and such. I also had a chance to visit the Eastman house. I really enjoyed it and got to go on the indoor tour. It was raining so the outside grounds tour wasn't available. Also there was a wedding held there, which kinda blocked off certain areas. It's a fairly new thing my cousin in law said. I would visit again!

Chris is indeed here and we have spent 2 nights studying emulsion design and 2 nights working on a bromo-iodide formula from Mark Osterman. More later. Chris is having problems getting consistent access to the internet, and there are other things that Chris may share with you all.

Mark and I are both keeping him busy.

Great news Ron. I was wondering how things were "developing" haha. (shoot me now please).
The thread got bumped yesterday and got we wondering.

Chris, if you've only skied west & the rockies, dont bother with the east unless you can get up into Canada… the Laurentians maybe.
It really is mostly sheet ice anywhere south of there and no powder like you know from out west.
