WE have lived here for a year and our clothes are becoming more orange and we just don't know why I think it is called Orange fever or something like that. Is there a cure

I want to wake up in the morning with a cup of fresh (homemade) coffee and walk my land, listen to nature, and love life. I envision peaceful good neighbors who respect one-another; easy-going, salt-of-the-earth kind of people.No malls, subdivisions or city crap. We have been looking into West Tennessee. Does anybody have any advice on that part of the state? I know lots of people who want to move to east TN, but I don't want to be part of that pilgrimmage. I work in xray and CT (such is the reason for my name) and my husband is in the heating and air conditioning industry.
northwest tn is a great place to accomplish the goals you have listed. land is available both near the rivers and the lake, as well as away from them. hunting and fishing are expected in this area. all lakes are freshwater. crappie, both small/large mouth bass/shellcrackers, perch, brimm, various catfish, including the popular channel, sauger, pike, garr, stripped bass, and others. wild turkey, deer, beaver, fox, cyotes, duck, quail, dove, squirrel, turtle, geese, and other fowl are available for hunting. the people are good, decent peaceable and law-abiding people. most identify w/ a church, and most identify w/ their communities. country and state are very important themes in this area. the lake area and paris, tn is a haven for some rather wealthy people. skiing, boating, and picnicing are very much pasttimes. lots of golf and golf communities. be prepared. arts, crafts, and antiques are big in the area. the lay of the land is comprised of gently rolling hills to bottomland to hollows, vales, and thickets. both hard and softwood forests. national wildlife areas throughtout. i would not hesitate to recommend this area of tn. contact the paris-henry county chamber of commerce for additional information. would be glad to give additional information on other areas of tn. good luck to you on your search, and hopefully, welcome to tn.

Jump in and add your Newcomers Advice (please be nice)....

1. Please don't stereotype. Tennesseans may speak with a southern accent, but MOST of us ARE educated.....and have all our teeth.

2. Country music "stars" are noticed here, but many go to the mall or out to eat just like everyone else. Locals usually leave them alone and go about our business. In past years, I've stood in line at a theater with one of the Oak Ridge Boys, walked beside Ricky Skaggs in the mall, sat beside Marty Stuart in a restaurant, stood behind the late Grandpa Jones in line at a grocery, and a few years back talked with Ronnie Brooks and Kix Brooks in the airport waiting area (back when you could still go to the gate with passengers). They ARE country music stars, but I think most of them just try to live quiet lives here. (Thankfully, the "paparrazi" is too busy following Pacman right now.)

3. Please don't panic if you see an approaching funeral procession on any Tennessee highway (except interstates) and EVERY car on the opposite side of the road pulls to the shoulder, or stops while the funeral procession passes. All cars behind the funeral procession follow a good distance behind. It's simply called respect.

4. If you are not a fan of football on some level, you might want to learn to be.

5. You might want to make sure you have a least something that's ORANGE in your wardrobe.
I am an Oklahoma native but have been in TN for 19 yrs. I am still a die hard Sooner girl and I can tell you the one bad thing about being a Sooner fan here so close to the Alabama border is everyone thinks it's Roll Tide colors

Football fever here is very contagious and a lot of fun no matter who your team is
