I don't want to be around narrow-minded people, people who have never ventured outside an area such as the south side of Milwaukee. I don't want to live around gang-bangers, punk rockers, or like OMG California valley girls. I prefer warmer temperatures to colder, but can tolerate seasons not too severe. Price of homes is not a concern. It should be a place that has a vibrant job market, and top schools including universities. I don't have to live in the city, but close....

Not too much I want in a place, right? Ideas?
I certainly don't see eye-to-eye with you, nor do I like a lot of what you say, but kudos to you for opening up and showing us your heart--I hope you find what you're looking for.

And she lives in Northern California presently, so I'm not sure what location would be an improvement for her that would also meet her numerous and often contradictory criteria. Somewhere in Europe perhaps? Maybe a German or Austrian town where they "make violins and play classical music as a matter of course."

Maggie Valley North Carolina, to me it's the most beautiful place in the world. I love the mountains and cool air and the fact they have four seasons and summers are not boiling hot.
