You could have 2 homes if you're rich enough -- one in Naples, FL and one in Aspen, CO.

Both are rather for the "very well to do" and you have your choice of climates and views!

Who cares what you earn, it's what you keep that counts. Also what's rich in a nice American town may leave you homeless in an "international" city.

Thanks J33, I just see so much emphasis on money, new cars, huge houses and truly believe it (among other things) has caused a decline in "social behavior". My wife and I enjoy a simple, content life as well and I wouldn't change it for anything.

So true. While my life may be complicated in some areas (that is just trying to get buy in a large city), I refuse to jump on the bandwagon of thinking I need a huge house (or in my situation, even my own car, I'm part of car sharing scheme) and the newest stuff.

This might be slightly off topic, but I think the emphasis on money and appearances may be behind the 'huge house boom'. I see a lot of new housing developments when I occasionally find myself out the further out suburbs, and always ask myself "why on earth are they so big" (I suppose because I so rarely see these new developments, they always strike odd whenever I do). It seems like as a nation, Americans are having less and less kids, and moving into bigger and bigger houses. These days they probably wouldn't even build the suburban house I grew up in with my family of six (3 bedrooms, 1.5 bath, and under 2000 square feet on a 50x130 lot) as it would be 'too small'.

there is another thread that talks about the glories of blue collar working class people and towns that would probably be more to your liking.

J33,

what i meant was, after reading your post, was you probably dont like these people talking about the Upper Class and Middle Classes, based on their talk of money and materialism.

so, I was saying, there is another thread going on right now that talks about the working classes and blue collar workers who are not all wrapped up in talking about money and houses, that You might like.

thats all, no criticism of what you said
