Hello,

It's been just over a year since I've moved to OK for work.

I'm currently in Minnesota right now for vacation purposes and can't want to go back to OK. There isn't as much to do in Oklahoma but the people are much friendlier. I almost forgot how awful it was to be in Minnesota until I came back and being around the people in Eden Prairie (where I have a property), makes me depressed. (Also where the dentist Walter Palmer lives)

An example of what I mean...

So, yes, I'm glad to be back in your state. Decent people and friendly atmosphere. I don't know how you really measure that but some of the intangible things in life are the most appreciated.

As one who use to live in Minnesota (the Plymouth/Medicine Lake area).. I can tell you much has changed in the MSP area over the years. At one time, I regarded that place as one of the friendliest large cities in the country. My last trip up there a couple of years back gave me a rude awakening. Minnesota does have much to offer when it comes to culture, recreation.. even health care, but hands down, Oklahoma still is one of the friendliest places in the country, and Oklahoma; OKC and even Tulsa specifically, has been making progress in leaps and bounds for quality of life. We still have a long way to go, but we're well on our way. I do miss the northern woods, Lake Superior and REAL winter though.

Glad to have another ex-Minnesotan amongst the growing population of folks seeking solace from the rest of the rat race!

Minnesota Nice! I've just been reading of your situation in Minnesota and was wondering how your arrival in Oklahoma was, so it's good to read about it.
