More is Better

New York State has a population of 21,147,304
Traveling the secondary highways, and sometimes county roads like we have, you know the huge cities are near by, but we haven't seen them.

We stopped in Seneca Falls this morning for breakfast before going in to the dealer for service.
Seneca Falls is the birthplace of the women's rights movement way back in  1848 Elizabeth Cady Stanton and four other women invited the public to the First Women's Rights Convention to discuss expanding the role of women in America. At the end of the two days, 100 people made a public commitment to work together to improve women’s quality of life.
The movement is still very much a part of Seneca Falls.

In fact this empty mill where people once made the things we needed will soon become the

Another interesting fact about Seneca Falls is 'Seneca' is where the phrase 'snake oil' is derived from. Petroleum that bubbled up from the ground was bottled and sold under the name 'Seneca Oil' for medicinal purposes. Eventually the name got corrupted to 'snake oil'.

Cigarettes are also sold under the name Seneca.

Butt you have to smoke them outside. Why? Because liberal New Yorkers have outlawed smoking in every public place in the entire state of New York. Seems that if people won't do the right thing just because it is the right thing to do, then you have to pass laws and make them. To bad states like Nevada with only a population of 2,821,087 couldn't ban smoking and protect  the lungs of the casino workers. Or even my own pathetic red state alaska, where smoking is only banned in Anchorage.

Crossed the border over to Pennsylvania. Don't have to where a helmet here. Haven't seen anyone smoke yet so don't know anything about that...
