I live in west Texas because of the oilfield I really don't like it here. Just more of a south Texas kinda guy I like trees water and all that. None of wich you will find around here. The damned air smells like your sucking on a tail pipe all day long

I live in God's Country in the hills of Tennessee!
Where the country boys know how to survive!
And almost every home has a gun or fifty!
Liberals do not fair so well down here!

Well... I live here because a can't find a way to escape, Venezuela it's a paradise, a beautiful country, I can swim in a white sands beach in the morning and sleep at 4500 meters above sea level (14.500 ft of altitude) by night. It's a small country with a nice people... it's a shame that communist have taken advantage of poverty and ruined it during this 12 years of nightmare, this is a electoral year, I wish that our people wake-up and vote against Chavez communism, however fix all the damage and hate that Chavez planted in Venezuela it will take more than 12 years.
Now I'm doing the paperwork to move out to Canada.

I'm free.

Not on all things, but most.

Texas has a don't mess with me I won't mess with you mentality. Most of the State is very polite as well, wave, make eye contact, know your neighbors and what not.

I also moved back to N. Mississippi after living in the Portland Or. Area for 16 years. When I was growing up getting away from the Memphis area was the plan. N. MS. had nothing for me. Then I moved back in 2003. Know I understand about the home spot. Our family has 22 acres and like ellis36 I'm back trudging thru the land that my brothers and I played on 40 years ago. There is something to be said for being home.

Yeah. Sometimes I can't believe I'm back. Sometimes I wonder why I left. I wish I could have come back while Dad was still here. He would have really been happy. This land meant a lot to him. But I guess there is a plan in life. Seems it all worked out in the end. I have to believe he knows I'm here.

I was lucky enough to get back for a couple years before he died of cancer. He wants the boys to keep the land that he put the "new house " smack dab on a lot line. Lol
