Jimmy Nash is one of the builders. The neighborhood off Chilesburg Road is Still Meadow and it's very nice too.

Yes. You know, as an old Chicago guy I just can't get into this calling neighborhoods "Andover Meadows" and "Chilesburg Estates" and such. I tell people I live "onna Southeast side, by Hays and Todd".

You want the facts about Lexington?

I wish someone had told me that Lexington is Allergy City. I had 4 asthma attacks a day when I moved here. I found an asthma/allergy doctor before I found a general practitioner.

I lived in Chicago all my life until I came down to Lexington a couple of years ago and Lexington has a nice mix. For a small southern (but not fanatically southern, know what I mean?) city it's fairly liberal and openminded. There are some good used bookstores and a few decent places to eat. What I really miss are good ethnic joints---no Polish or Bohemian places here and the Italian food is wretched and you can forget about a good pizza. No beef stands or hot-dog stands of course. Waffle House is cool though.

One thing that's very tiresome down here is all the Christian business and people wearing thier religion on their sleeve.

Maybe I was a little harsh about crime in Lexington no it isn't that bad. And it is so true about all the Christian business and people wearing their religion on their sleeve.

Love it or leave it

No worse than the liberals, Pagans and gays wearing their beliefs on their sleeves... and believe me, Lexington is "flaming" with these types.

I left it. Thank God, now I can get a decent pizza and Chinese again. And in Lexington caggage rolls, pierogis and kugelis were simply out of the question.

I am a liberal and gay, yes most of the so called Christians are worse than us they claim to want to share Gods love yet they still are convinced we were born just to burn in hell, the day someone says me and my partner are invited to church with no ulterior motives of changing us is the day I will consider rediscovering christianity !!!!

Welcome to "that day" I am inviting you to Quest Community Church!!!

I do not represent them in any way... I am simply another human being like yourself, but the crowd there is definitely great.
