I do know where all the good pubs are ; ) Oh and one more thing... no illegal latinos - too far a walk or swim for them to cross the border : ) Their issue is the Polish Illegals!!! See..it's everywhere!
Forgive my ignorance but is Scotland part of the EU? Is Poland a part of th EU as well? If so there's your answer....from what I hear better the poles then the problem Ireland has with the Roma gypsies...

Ok to keep on topic.....Scotland have as many lakes as Nj ( j/k)

Scotland is part of EU but it's Britian...like Canada and Mexico are parts of North America...they still have their own country : ) And no, Scotland has NO LAKES!!! They only have "LOCHS" : )) And lots of them! Maybe a trip up north to meet "nessie" is in order : ) Oh and word of warning...I hear Ireland is very expensive these days!

How did I know your ancestors would be "fur the North" : ) Any IRA members in your clan : )) My Grandmother's side (Lynch) is from the North and My grandfather's side (Flaherty) is from the South. I hear that there's a bridge in galway that reads - Gaelic Translation: "Dear Lord delivery us from the ferosious(sp) O'Flahertys". Apparently we did some heavy fuedin' with the Burkes : ) I've never been to Ireland : ( But it too is on my "bucket list".

Default Moving to Morris

I would also avoid Wharton......school system isn't very good. You might want to check out Jefferson Twp. Depending on how old the home is, taxes can be reasonable.

OK, lots of posts in this thread, but many are way off topic.

Morris County is a big county and you really cannot talk about the whole county as a good place or bad place to live as eastern part is very different then the western part.

One thing to note is that the towns that are on the train line (Morristown, Morris Twp. Madison, Chatham) and are considered to be commutable distance to NYC are doing better real estate value wise, and are very likely to do better going into the future as people pass on long commutes by car and when they can prefer to use the train. This has been very true with gas between $3 and $4 a gallon, and will be so much more true as gas hits $5 a gallon and even $6 a gallon.

Just watch what happens to real estate values in Western Morris County when Gas hits $6 a gallon, I predict big problems then.
