I think it's funny that someone is comparing Scotland to Mississippi. LOL! I love MS, have lived here all my life...but come on...Scottland? Wake-up call, Scotland is probably a lot cooler place to live than MS. Sorry bud. However, we welcome you with open arms! Hope your journey is a great one!

Well my man has a great job over there now. Yes Scotland has a lot of qualities that I will miss but MS is not such a bad place.

I can still come back and visit.

Actually, many, possibly even most, Mississippians are, to some degree, of Scottish descent (both black and white). So I don't think it's odd to compare the two. And Scotland is not without its problems: drugs, school bullying, conformist thought, socialism and immigration, to name just a few. Unfortunately, the kind of Scots who are America's third wealthiest ethnic group...have mostly moved away from Mississippi (and are few in Scotland, too). Still, the state's culture is basically Scottish.

Reading about The Highland Clearances will explain how many of our Scottish ancestors arrived in North America.

When you have travelled as much as I have everywhere is the same, no where is free of crime etc, wouldn't it be great if we could all find a utopia? . I have to agree with you about culture, I did notice a lot of similarities when I am over there.

I knew a lady whom's son was Mayor or something like that I think Mayor of Grand Isle years ago. We went to visit him once and let me tell you the shrimp there are huge and plentiful. He had a huge freezer full. We went on his boat for a spell also and the water is beautiful. He made a mention of the cajun's fishing there and how when they are caught fishing some place they ain't suppose to how hard it was to catch them because they could get those boats thu desert if need be and he just smiled. He said they don't do it often they just test the water every now and again.

I prefer the West also.

Cost of living changed that, however.

Yeah, it's certainly more expensive to live in the West for the most part. I lived in GA for a couple of years and the difference in cost of living between there and CO is noticeable.

Here in CO the cost of living is pretty high. Buying a nice home in a good school district South of Denver will run you several hundred grand at least. Many, many neighborhoods have an entry price in excess of a million plus. The resort towns can get REALLY expensive. But, like everything in life, there are good and bad points to consider I suppose. We love the mountains, the weather, the skiing, the hiking and Denver is a wonderful city to live in overall.

Plus the airport has direct flights almost everywhere in North America, so San Diego and NYC are both less than 2 hours away.
