    SE Iowa. I was born and raised here. After I got out of the bees, (And divorced ) I spent some time traveeling, mostly down south, stayed with a bud in alabama for a time, and eventually ended up living in the florida keys.. met a gal down there, that convinced me to move back where she was from.. southern Maine.. lived there for 18 years... have a LOT of friends there... but, i got tired of the... how to say it??? oh well, here goes.... I got tired of the CITY people that were moving there... they wanted to live in the country, but they wanted all their city ways to come with them... more and more of them were NOT nice people. You wave or smile at them, and say hi, and you get a snear.... like, who the F are you? It just wasnt for me.. I cannot deal with people like that, I spend too much time in jail.. my wife was talkin about divorcing me... we packed up and moved back out here to the midwest... man, WHAT a difference!!!!!!!! I can smile and wave again without someone flipping me the bird. Every person you talk to doesnt seek to gain some advantage.. It is a joy, and a pleasure to be back among real people again, and As a bonus, I have not gone to jail ONCE sinse we got back here.
    I know, it will eventually change here as well... the death of America i call it. For now, the good old midwest is resisting and holding...

    born in florida, my mom moved from there was i was less then a year old to philly PA where i spent the first 11 years of my life.. when the neighborhood starting going downhill my mom decided it was time to move so we moved to the suburbs of philly and i have lived here since. i met the wife when we were 11 and have been off and on untill about 8 years ago. we got married a few years ago and had 2 little girls. i bought a house about a mile from my moms and we have been living the life since. now that one is in school the wife went back to school to be a nurse and i own a shop building nasty *** street cars. in january i take ownership of a local speed shop that has been in business for over 50 years. the owner is a family friend and he is getting to old to take care of it anymore and since he never had any kids he felt i was the next best thing. all the paper work is already signed so im just counting down the days. i know thats a little more then they the question at hand but i figured it kinda fits.. lol
