Buptink obviously has to be joking. I find it hilarious when these people rant and rave about something they know nothing about or have some agenda.

Iowa and South Dakota?? Now that is really hilarious.

Living where there are seasons if wonderful if you LOVE winter. That means you have to love the cold, snow and clouds and isolation for about 6 months of the year. Otherwise you are going to be unhappy half of the year or half of your life. At least in CA if you want to go to the snow you can drive to it. This is why CA is overpopulated. Many do not enjoy the biting cold winters in Iowa and S.Dakota.

Observation: Last Sunday I was in Temecula for a beer tasting expedition at Black Market Brewery. After that, we decided to dedicate two minutes for crusing "Old Town" Temecula in our POS car just for the hell of it. Two items stand out:

• Loud, loud, loud. Meaning the music blaring from all the joints along Front St. Very crowded as well. I had no idea it was such a "scene". Being a misanthrope, I'll make sure to avoid it on the weekends.

• Crawling with coppers. In the short stretch of Front St that delineates "old town", I passed six, yes SIX cop cars. Five RCSO and one CHP. Meh.

Hi Fontucky, nice to see you again. The Mighty Mo is overflowing and I had to move out from under my bridge. They gave us enough advance warning for me to pack my grocery cart and move to higher ground. In two weeks my wonderboys will arrive here for a month. It's been ten months since I've hugged my children and I'm amazed I survived the ordeal. I'm gearing up for another go at desolate southern CA. I'll be successful this time. I know what I'm heading into, but I dread living there. I'm a small town dad and I don't particularly like humans. See you 'round the forums! I hope you're well.

Default We will be adding to the population

well we ( my husband & I) will be added to the population count in 2012. Am excited...and Thankful. I am hoping it can hold our interest. We are in our mid 50's and are on the Hip side....if ya know what I mean. We like Arts, Chic Resturants, and Shopping. We are conservative in our thinking--Love Capitalisam, & love FAMILY. But we do have a trendy side....just hoping that Temecula can offer that part. Otherwise, I feel its a brillant choice....

Years ago, when my husband & I use to visit OLD Town we always made note that the City itself was on the road to success. Its presentation, and planning was always felt with our few visits.

Sure its an awesome place to live with a young family, but we are just past that point. We are NOT OLD , and hoping it can provide our life point. Can't believe it.....Temecula will be our HOME!

Fontucky - what time of day in old town? past 6/7 pm and the place starts hopping. re: cops, any police stop in temecula involves at least 3 cop cars. so having them clustered in an area where you've got 500-1000 people drinking, dancing, eating shouldn't come as a surprise.

Temekie - don't know what kind of "planning" you are talking about. Temecula is a build it first city and we'll solve our problems (ie traffic) when they start to develop. That's not to imply Temecula is a bad place to live. Far from it. It's enjoyable but problems do exist on the planning front...this place is/was built on mello roos.

Temecula has a police station and the city hall in Old Town so it would be common to see some police cars there. We go through Old Town once a week or so and have never seen any problems.

It is true that most of the developments do have Mello Roos fees. That was a big issue for us so we bought our new home in Murrieta in a development that does NOT have any Mello Roos, HOA or such fees.

I have been in Temecula for 15 years. This is before the city exploded in size. My conclusion of Temecula - IT SUCKS, BAD. At first the city seems ok but as you drive around you realize its a mini LA. Some areas good other areas flat out bad. Crime increases every year, illegals flock here daily, robberies increasing. The people have always been unfriendly and self centered, and above all, are of low class riverside mentality. White trash, 25% mexican, a lot of crime, traffic, ah***s in pickups cutting you off, selfish people, home invasions, bank robberies frequently, no ocean, no real entertainment, city politics is plain creepy - not a great city! And YES, I am leaving.
