FWIW.
Glad you are adjusting. I hope it continues to be a good fit for you. It took almost 30 years for my parents to finally become a real part of the community without that feeling of distance. Around then, my mom's cancer forced a relocation to upper Midwest. So much for finally feeling at home. Don't despair. It's normal. Best of luck moving forward!

That's alright green_mariner. Yeah I know Jackson, Mississippi, is not getting any MLB team. I was joking around with it. I have never lived in Mississippi to comment on it. I have been to Mississippi a bunch of times though. I've been to Jackson a couple times along with Starkville and Merdian. There's some good baseball and football talent in Mississippi and even some basketball. I never lived there, can't really comment on it. Different ball game when you deal with the folks day in and day out instead of driving through and visiting for a day or two.

Counter-Cultural (by no means balanced) songs from a hippie group 40 years ago!

It has no relevance today.

No problem.

I've been through Mississippi, with a stop in Corinth. The only thing I saw of Corinth was a Chinese restaurant. Other than that, I don't have alot of experience other than what my father has told me. He is a product of parents who were a part of the Great Migration. He has been to Mississippi to visit relatives. However, he was born and raised in Milwaukee,WI. In a way, my own view of Mississippi is shaped by what I hear from my father regarding his parents life in Mississippi and their reasons for leaving Mississippi, not to mention what my father saw in the Mississippi Delta.

As for baseball, Mississippi has a few minor league teams. I think the Braves have a minor league affiliate there.

The Braves do have a AA minor league team in Pearl. The stadium is called Trustmark Park and it's very nice.

Yes, the Mississippi Braves. I know of them because I live in the Atlanta area.
