We are possible relocating to outside the Charlotte area. We want to embrace the calmer way of life we hear about. We don't intend to impose or make changes. I hope we will be welcomed to your state.

That song by the Eagles sounded about right with regards to Florida in the past decade or so " Call someplace paradise, kiss it goodbye"

Seems appropriate again......

For one thing, the cost of living in NC compared to MA is 25% less. We building a home in a beautiful community near Wilmington, for what a home in MA would cost that needs major work, is in a crappy neighborhood, and has no ammenities. We still have snow on the ground, our cars are white from the chemicals they put on the roads, and everything is frozen. I worked outdoors for 28 years in this crap, and it's about time we started to enjoy our lives. How's the corruption in NC compared to MA? People up here are fed up, hence Scott Brown winning Ted Kennedy's seat in the senate, and a Republican to boot? Our Governor, (yes he's faithful to his wife) is slashing everything in sight, and we're losing jobs like everyone else. When people move from here they don't come back.

Oh yea, I could care less if I ever see a Red Sox game again. Fenway Park is the biggest rip-off there is. Good luck getting a ticket. High-def TV is the only way to watch sports now. By the time NC is built out, like you make it sound, the sea level will be 3 feet higher and half the East Coast will be under water, about 100 years from now. Just my opinion.

I live here, I fail to see what is so "calm" about it. The "calmness" or the popular, overused clique "slower pace of life" in the south was due to the fact that there were not so many people and it was not so congested here like it is up north!
