If you want to stay in New Jersey, trust me.. no one will shed a tear down here.

Good Luck !
NJ has double the population, and a fraction of the size... maybe thats saying something. Or perhaps the fact that the attitude comes from TN and not NJ, despite the stereotype.

So, like I said, I'm fantastic.... err... as well as other people here in NJ. By association. To me.

No idea about the other states' boards, but totally agree that this board has a great group of really helpful posters, NJ rocks..

I'm new on this board too. And yes, NJ rocks, you betcha!

I don't think that this is a very helpful post. I honestly did not know how to answer your posts in the TN forum as I didn't have relevant or relative information. Your demographics are so different than so many of us that frequent the TN forum. Also, you posed your questions during the July 4th holiday and so many of the regular posters are on holiday.

Best of luck to you.

I don't think it was meant to insult the TN forumers... just an observation is the way I'm reading it? I see no insults?

You beat me to it. Heck reps for you too! I find that this forum is more helpful than some others. It's rare that a question gets no response.

I do think it was meant to insult TN forumers. There is a northern attitude that sounds insulting to people from the south. Yes, I moved from NJ to Tennessee, but after 2 years here, I know think like a Tennessean.
Smokymountain girl is right that most are celebrating the July 4th holidays here. I know Nashville, had 2 staight days of concerts downtown, some free.The 4th is a big holiday here. I don't post on the mentioned boards because I live in the Nashville Area and he have seperate boards for each part of the state.

I didn't say it was insulting; I said I didn't find the post here helpful.

I miss shopping in New Jersey so much! OMGosh, the outlets with no sales tax......... I could cry. Have a great evening!
