It's very good, but I left out a word. Should be half of a good Amber Ale (preferably a light golden colored one) on top of half a Guiness. That is the key.

It's sad really. Cali (although that encompasses alot) is awesome, but you can buy four average houses in Eastern Shore for what you would have to pay for one in most of Cali. I'm sorry, but you cannot convince me people get paid enough to make up for that. Someone who makes 40k in Daphne would have to make 160k for the same job in most Cali cities. That ... is just stupid - even if I am comparing a small town to a mega-metropolis.

adventuregurl,
This is just a reminder of something I had commented on before...crime is Mobile being quite high. Many on this forum posted that I was exaggerating...being dramatic. The following is the today's front page of the Mobile Register. Maybe I was not exaggerating after all...

FBI: Mobile metro area had seventh-highest homicide rate in U.S. in 2008 - Breaking News from the Press-Register - al.com

And if you notice, they mention Puerto Rico also...so far this year about 610 murders in such a small island. It really hurts to admit it, but it's reality.

Prichard makes up a BIG part of that, since it's included in the "metro" area.

We just moved from Alpharetta to Loxley in July and we absolutely love it, so much to do and the stress level is non existant. Putting 400 in the rear view mirror is very good for your health.

No, only about 2.5 years. We sold our house in Dunwoody before the market crashed and were just renting a house off Haynes Bridge. I had about 20 years total in Georgia, prior to that I'm a native New Yorker. Never really did like GA, but I absolutely love Bama. If ya got any questions about stuff, just fire away
