I wish I had bought some land out here when I could have still afforded it. Now it is out of my reach financially and Ill have to move if I want a newer place.
That seems to be happening all over North America. We too have an abundance of big box stores, yet there are always plans for more.

Rough.

I moved south (TN), came back to IL 6 months later. LOL I know many folks who have tried the south on and didnt like it, but have also known a family who really enjoyed it and have stayed in TN. Too darn hot and humid for me down there, but hey, whatever floats yer boat! LOL

Yeah, I don't really like NASCAR anymore. I kinda did back in the late 90's, but even still it wasn't as exciting as the old race footage from its hey-days in the 50's, 60's and even 70's.
They were in a music video together? I missed that! The question of the Confederate flag came up? Then it doesnt surprise me at all that he would have said negative things about the flag.

I was sort of expecting him to be negative, but I wasn't expecting a comment so bold, rude and hateful.
In my humble opinion that was uncalled for, not a trace of southern manners at all.

I guess I just assumed he was going make light of it like Ludricrus, if he didn't agree.

I believe Jr and Ludricrus had a video about a year or two ago. I have no idea what song it was for though...

Isn't life way easier and slower down there? Why would you move back?

When I lived in central FL, I really didn't feel like I was in the south. Of course geographically, it's southern, but was made up of transplants from all over. But I did symphatize with the true natives. So many people move to FL, then trash the place and the people. Although I am from a mid atlantic state (Maryland...well it falls below the M-D Line, but many people lump it with the mid atlantic ) I found myself saying "I don't care how you did it up north!"
