    Mokey, I thought you were going to sign this as “Lisa Douglas” (from Green Acres)

    Both.
    Semi rural area in a neighborhood on a lake. Being in a neighborhood is good for me because I'm your neighbor that's always borrowing something.:(:p
    But I do think you need to live next to a giant City if you want good bread. I'm not talking about money I'm talking about bread. And deli.
    A five mile drive will net me 4 golf courses. 20 miles circles 40.:)
    But it really is night and day living in a small town. People are polite and hold the door open, and say please and thank you, and really mean it when they say have a nice day.
    I think WhitneyK and I could swap out just fine.

    Many moons ago there was a crisis on the Paranormal Forum. We were all listening to Art Bell and I decided I was going to grill a pork tenderloin stuffed with brie cheese and bacon. I had no rosemary.:( It was 2 a.m. when I rang my neighbors bell asking for rosemary. For some reason they did not answer the door.

    Having lived in both settings, I prefer a more country like setting. Also, having had nightmarish experiences in a small town, I would definitely be more cautious about living in one again. I spent part of my teens in a beach town, and absolutely loved it! I could work on the boardwalk in the summers, and the ocean was wild and beautiful in the winter.

    The country! The further out the better. As long as I have a four wheel drive to get to the small town I’m good. Give me wide open spaces and a good horse.

    Ask a sailor about the Great Lakes. That thing has to be treated like an ocean. Spent a lot of time on one and that's the truth.

    You are absolutey correct on that. Been on Lake Michigan enough to know it can kill you quick out there.

    Can we sing The Ballad of the Edmund Fitzgerald ?
    That was the day that Moms and dads and uncles learned about rock and roll.
