Pony Rides

I'm looking for inexpensive pony rides for my little guys. They're 4 and 6.  We'll be up in Hurley for a few days, but I'm willing to travel around if the price is right.  I don't think they're ready for trail rides, so pony rides is it!

Thanks in advance!

Also, has anyone been to either Belleayre Interactive Nature Center or the Woodstock Animal Farm?

Sorry to post here, but the catskill community deleted :(

Thanks in advance!

Kick-Ass Yard Sale


Monday, May 26
Memorial Day YARD SALE

749 Springtown Road
Tillson, NY

9 am -3 pm

My friend who's hosting this says "I'd like to see yard sales as a new form of socializing. So come on by and relax on our previously-loved furniture, roll around on our once-worn clothes, dance with us on our barely-used throw rugs."

It's a multi-family yard sale and should have awesome stuff.

Tues, February 12: Meeting of Mid-Hudson Valley Chronic Pain Support Group (Poughkeepsie, NY)

Please help by forwarding this to anyone you know who might be interested! Thanks.


The Mid-Hudson Valley Chronic Pain Meetup Group will be holding its next meeting on Tuesday, February 12, 2008, at 7:00pm in Poughkeepsie, NY, at the Muddy Cup Coffee House, 305 Main Street in Poughkeepsie, NY. The facility is wheelchair accessible. Anyone with chronic pain and their family members / caregivers are welcome. At the February meeting the group will plan themes and guest speakers for future meetings, and discuss how members cope with their pain. A small donation (we suggest $1 to $3) will be requested, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Chronic pain sufferers with questions about the group please can call 845-255-0671 or e-mail hudsonvalleypaingroup@gmail.com for more information, or can view the web page of the group at http://chronicpain.meetup.com/101/ . The site can be used to RSVP for the meeting and offers the opportunity to sign up for e-mail updates of new events and upcoming meetings.

The Mid-Hudson Valley Chronic Pain Meetup Group is the only peer-led chronic pain support group in the Mid-Hudson Valley. It is open to patients, family members and caretakers. The group is open to people with any chronic pain condition, including fibromyalgia, degenerative disk disease, neuropathy, migraines, endometriosis, chronic regional pain syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, and lupus. It meets the second Tuesday of each month (except March's meeting, which will be on the 3rd Tuesday) at Muddy Cup Coffee House, 305 Main Street, Poughkeepsie, NY.

Looking for a new home...


My husband and I, both from NY originally, have been out in Chicago for the past 5 years, but are aiming to move to the Kingston/Woodstock/Phonicia-ish area when our lease expires this March. We've always have family there (my aunt is a local artist and does Zen Buddhist chaplaincy work -- she was once a Monk at ZMM in Mt.Tremper -- and my uncle ran "Family", a social service organization, in Kingston), and we'll be central to a support system of other family and friends within a 3 hour drive in one direction or another. We're aiming to find a house/side-by-side/townhouse to be our home, rented or rent-to-own, until we can afford to build our own.

We're a non-drinking, non-smoking, currently pet-less (and ok with staying that way for a while, though we love animals) couple with a toddler. He'll be three shortly after our aimed-for moving date. I have a good rental history from 4 places, including the one we're in now, my husband from the latter three of those. This most recent rental is the end-unit in a townhouse strip -- equivalent to living in a side-by-side, multi-family property, so our neighbors can act as a reference for what kind of people we make, for living next to, on top of landlord references. Our lease is up at the end of March, so that is when we're planning the move, although we have already paid the last month's rent, so we could move probably as early as the 16th or so, if necessary. My husband was told by the head of staffing for his company that a transfer would be arranged for him, so we should have a job lined up.

I'm a bit frazzled, to say the least, trying to do this from halfway across the country. Earlier on, it was too early to secure a place, because they were all opening up long before our move, and now that we're close to the move, well, it feels like we have no time left to find a good one. Of all the places we've looked for listings, RentWoodstock.com has by far proven the best for finding potentials that match our needs and price range, but I've only found one such listing now that it's the right time to grab a new lease, and we narrowly missed catching that one. So, if anyone has any ideas, or connections or...I dunno...anything...

The listing we were really hopeful about was for $900/mo. rent (our rental ceiling for out there, but still considered do-able), and they were offering a side-by-side house with 1150 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a full basement, a garage, a shed, and on a 3 acre property with a stream. The one that would've actually given us as much or more space than we have now (the landlords don't know the square footage of this place, and we haven't had time to finish taking rough measurements, ourselves, yet) -- enough living space for us as a family, for out son's therapy-stuff needs, for a studio (I'm an artisan), for storage....and let's not forget the LAND...land for blocking off garden space, land for fencing off kiddie play place, and land for LAND. ::sighs:: Now, it's kinda silly to be disappointed by losing the place, since we never found out if it met all our non-spacial wants/needs...but it's really hard not to. Could we get away with less square footage? Probably, depending on how it was arranged. Could we get away with less land? Certainly, though we'd appreciate at least a bit of yard. What is the actual question list we're using to review places? Well, that's for later. If a place isn't affordable and having enough room for us, our car, and a studio for me, then it does us no good if it has a washer/dryer, a gas stove, central heat...

Blah. So anyway...if you happen to know of / notice another miracle rental...would you be so kind as to poke me and point me at it, please? Pretty please? Pretty please with cute toddlers on top?
