Born & raised in Philly, back here now in a town just NE of it -- but hopefully not for long. So don't put it in location because I wish I could just list all my favorite "adopted" homes up there :>). Honestly I'd like to (still be able to ) put Chicago, for example, but I'd be lying.

Have referenced it in posts -- but try to forget I'm here for the most part, really, so try to avoid it :>) LOL

Had written a post in the Florida forum requesting folks list the towns in their observations/experiences because the posts implicate the entire state for the faults of the respective towns being complained about. There are so many different characteristics (both positive and negative) from town to town, just as in PA or any state, that it's sad to see the entire state lumped all the time.
As opposed to saying "Don't move to Florida", how about "This is how it is in ____ (area of Florida)." Its a big state.
Could be like night and day just going one town over.

Hi Elfy, I'm from.....let's see.... oh yea, South Dakota! LOL And of course, I have it on my profile, too. I have posted the town I live in at times, but some areas are really too sparsely populated to feel safe listing your town. If you don't know what I'm saying, check out a recent post on the No. Dak. board. Someone new moved into a town and described a bit about where they live. Another poster said something like, "Oh is that house brown with the orange trim and is it right across from the gas station. I grew up in that house." Anyway, it's kind of like that in most of my state, too.

NY (LI) Only reason I dont mention the town is bcs to me all towns there are the same- overtaxed and over-crowded-

Good point though- elfyum- its good to know where someones from as a reference- like why they like a certain area.

East Ky proud Wasn't born and raised here, hubby was though. I love these friendly people..I was born and raised in Cincy-Dayton areas of Ohio. I still love you buckeyes, but its just too cold and windy for me now. These ole mountains keep the tornado's, and windy winters away . I am only five hours away so visit my family a lot in Ohio
