And my point was that there are plenty of places with green grass and mild winter temps.

That is true, but those same places are also horrible for allergy sufferers. Can't have everything...

My family, upbringing, and friends combine to make the southeast home to me and I miss it when I am not there.

But if I were starting from scratch with a new life, I'd probably say San Diego would be heaven. Great weather, beaches, most of the big-city amenities right in town, and if I did need anything not offered in SD, then LA is close by. Second choice would probably be somewhere on the Gulf Coast.

I cant believe what some people consider 'heaven' or where they would most likely want to live. If places like New York City, San Fran or L.A. are heaven, I would hate to experience hell. In my opinion I would most want to live in a log cabin in remote Alaska, rural New England, Pennsylvania or upsate New York, Core de Elaine, Idaho, the Appalachains of Tennessee or Virgina, or on the Great Plains of Oklahoma and panhandle of Texas where the REAL America lives.

In my opinion, your definition of heaven sounds like something that would lead me to suicide. That's why they make strawberry and vanilla.

It's 'Coeur d'Alene', by the way. You should learn to spell your definition of heaven.

There is no such thing as a place where the 'real America' lives. The Declaration of Independence was signed in a city, by the way.

Where I am right now. Texas. Although more instances of snowfall every year would be more to my liking.

A nice area around Denver, Boulder, or Fort Collins, Colorado would be ideal.

Those places don't sound like hell, per se, but they also don't sound heavenly by any stretch...

You'll find the "real" America wherever you find Americans. And you find many, many millions of Americans in LA, NYC, SF, etc.
