Let me give you a little geography lesson about New York, and all of you New Yokers out there can correct me if I am wrong. Upstate New York is a region of the U.S. state of New York north of the core of the New York metropolitan area. There is no clear or official boundary between Upstate New York and Downstate New York, and other names exist for regions north of New York City — either as part of, or distinct from, the Upstate region. Basically from the image you see (yes, which is an image of the THEORETICAL 2012 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION RESULTS BY UPSTATE/DOWNSTATE) the red indicates UPSTATE and the Blue is DOWNSTATE– also known as “The City”.

Over the weekend, I had my first Vineyard experience and it was nothing less than great! New York was a great place to experience world-class wines which paired beautifully with picture-perfect countryside, smiles and relaxation. Finger Lakes Wine Country is home to almost 100 wineries, breweries and distilleries centered around three main lakes: Keuka, Seneca, and Cayuga.

From the vineyards we checked out, my suggestion is if you are ever in the area try these few on for size: American and Lucas.

I cannot wait for another trip to Upstate New York. It was the perfect get away from the city weekend.

Most of you know that I am a sucker for Justin Timberlake and honestly, who isn’t? Yesterday, JT premiered his new video “Not a Bad Thing” on Ellen. The video also doubles as a documentary about the search for a couple who got engaged on the Long Island Railroad to “Not a Bad Thing”.

Throughout the video documentarians search New York City for this mystery couple.  The video also includes heartwarming interviews with couples about their own proposals, as well as the struggles and rewards of finding love, or letting love find you. The search is still on for this missing couple, you can follow the breaking action one twitter with the hashtag, #haveyouseenthiscouple. Let’s find this couple so Timberlake can finally meet them.

At least for now, it seems, the search for a true love continues.
