Does not surprise me, I thought it was a one off decal.

Now I'm seeing these all the time "FloGrown", company is out of Orlando.

Not that the Salt Life fad was bad enough, and all the "X Life" decals people made up "Dirt Life", "Muddin Life", now it's this. Got to admit though, the Snowbird with the grumpy face is priceless...

I cannot divulge details on companies, now can I?

You really cannot dig up "Statistics" on this other than see turnover in a company. That is hard and exist all over because it's often due to other things, poor pay, Boss is too hard to work under and etc.

If you had it rosy the entire time you lived here or came from elsewhere with similar experiences, sure you would be like...what you talking about Willis? Everyplace is just the same isn't it? Why do all these people complain? Well of course, many have a lack of empathy in the workplace because they are not getting the s end of the stick.

Suggest you go out and socialize with young and middle-aged professionals, that's why I do and I hear plenty complaining and also some who do not get it or understand why people dislike the job market in Florida. Their view is, it's warm, sunny, girls wearing skimpy bikinis while its' snowing and cold and grey elsewhere, stop complaining, except those things don't pay the rent...
That's a lot of words for someone who likes to tailor reality to fit their argument. Good job.

The NY/NJ blowhards here don't pretend to like you...they are just naturally rude and the accent alone provides you with fair warning...[/quote]

Isnt that pleasant? Man I wish everyone was like that. Would make life so much more enjoyable!

at one time FL was giving away 160 acre parcels so long as you lived and built on it. That brought a lot of people. I dont recall when exactly that was, late 1800's perhaps.

How has FL adjusted to NY'ers?

In 25 years here nobody questioned my bloodline and where I came from made no difference at all.

Speaking of xenophobia, I am going to guess u never tried to live in northern maine.

There are many places in the country that dont want outsiders coming in to screw things up.

FL adjusted quite nicely to accommodate many, NY's mainly...solution majority rules and the influx of many dilutes their way of life.
