I live outside of Detroit and things are a mess. All in all a pretty lousy place to live for many reasons. Plus, it seems that people simply lack values.

So where do you live and do you like it there?

San Jose, CA - I've lived in several other places, even outside the country but always keep coming back here. I love it here, its the people I suppose.

The DC area is great. But quite honestly, you need to have an upper-middle class income to enjoy living here. Otherwise, how are you gonna afford all those fine restaurants that President Obama dines in? :-)

lol, sorry. I thought my name gave it away.

I live in Houston, and I like the homes in my neighborhood. I like the proximity of necessities. I like that it is close to downtown, the 4 major universities and that it is close to an airport

Loving where you live is easy. As long as you are living in a state, village, town or neighborhood where you can take a long hard look at the quality of
life in that place that you call, home and contrast what you see with Haiti, Iraq, Afghanistan, Mexico and practically, the biggest part of the world.

I live in a relatively small township
on Long Island NY (duh), as if you couldn't have figured that out for yourself. Life is comparatively good here although
on a relative QOL issue, if you need to find work, there are fewer opportunities here than there are in other places. I never forget that there are always
and certainly, worse places than here.

As many of us see, there have been so many societal changes to consider when offering an opinion as to, "loving" where they live and without understanding
the length or the quality of the love that they have, is a very relative aspect of that love. I've lived in this town for 36 years and have enjoyed the best of
blessings here, but as most of us have seen, the times and the people are changing and I only wish that I could say, for the better. It is good though, that I
do like my little town. The deflated housing market would not allow me to be able to sell my house and yet afford to move elsewhere. I consider myself fortunate
because I have no more than whatever it is that I can afford to have and thankfully, no less. I'll end on this philosophical note:

"Blessed are those without great expectations because they have fewer disappointments".

I bought an old house in a great nieghborhood here, and have been fixing it up ever since. It's probably what I will always do. I have travelled all over the U.S., and have lived in 8 states from the south to midwest. I will die and be buried in this town, happily.
