I would move there for the nice (warm and humid) weather and rural atmosphere.

I prefer MS to Michigan, where I was born... actually, I HATE Michigan. Going back to visit my daughter really depresses me when I look around the place. I bounced back and forth regularly when I was young, going to school down here and then back up there. I HATED school up there because... I don;t know why, just because I hated everything back then. I hated school down here because the teenage boys seemed immature to the point of being retarded (and, frankly, still do) but, to be fair, I didn't give it much of a chance down here. I hate the public school system down here still today, but from what my daughter (who still lived in MI) tells me I'd like it no more up there today than I did then.

I have no idea what the schools are like up east or out west, and I have lived in places like L.A. and Tucson but I still prefer it down here. Knoxville TN was another great place I have lived and that's really only a few hours from here, so I guess I just love the South.

Moved here from Michigan to escape the snow and the economy. Just felt like home so I never left.

I like the French/Creole style architecture in the south, beautiful!! Love the high ceilings and 8 foot windows. There is nothing like it's charm in the country.

I have been to Scotland and it is a cool place all right. So cool you need a jacket in July. It is a very dreary place--lots of history--and that is worth a visit, but then you will want to head on out of there.

It is 61 with clear beautiful skies. I think you must have got a real bad spell of weather when you were visiting. July is usually a great month, generally our climate is very temperate with milder summers. It appealed to my fiance as he was used to scorching hot MS summers But myself personally I love hot climates so MS is perfect for me

There is a stereotype of Scotland being dreary/cold all the time which is not the case.

Where did you visit? If you flew into GLA then I am not far from there.

UnfortunatelyI didn't get to Glasgow. I visited Edinboro and the Trossachs. Callander and Stirling. I have a painting from a Callander artist hanging in my bathroom. It was cold enough in July that the pub had a fire going. Clear but no sun. Dark colors like after a rain. Unique and other wordly but I would get totally depressed living there. The history and the castle are fantastic, however.

My cousin lives in Edinburgh (pronounced Edin-burah), I always find it cold there because of the breeze.

I'm not far from Glasgow and the Trossachs. I am sorry to hear that the weather was atrocious when you where here especially in July but It is not normally like that here. Maybe if your ever back over here it will be different. I recommend April/May, we're getting really nice weather just now

Actually a friend is going to Scotland in a few weeks. I am not sure where the trip goes but I know it will include Edinburgh. Maybe she will have the good weather days then.
I know the pronunciation and spelling--Edinburgh--but unfortunmately an Amercanized lazy version is sometimes used and I felt real lazy--sorry about that.

Don't be daft, nothing to be sorry about seriously.

Tell your friend they're in for a real treat with the weather, utter bliss right now. Sorry you did not have that when you were here Tama.

Well if you come back I can show you the real Scotland, but I'm not much of a tour guide lol You can give me a tour guide of H'burg!
