Here is a little about us:

We're the four Goetzes located in beautiful upstate New York in the village of Endicott, which is part of the "Triple Cities" (Binghamton, Johnson City and Endicott) or "Southern Tier" of New York State. We're located near the Pennsylvania border, about 80 miles south of Syracuse and 190 miles northwest of the Big Apple. Our two children, Sue and Brian, were born at Wilson Hospital in Johnson City. The Dad, Larry, was born and raised in Rome, New York. The Mom, Missy (Rosemary), was born in Niskayuna, New York and raised in Lynn, Massachusetts and Erie, Pennsylvania.
