    Yeah, I used to go every year. Even marched in the parade in the living periodic table. But eventually the crowds just got so oppressive that I couldn't deal with it any more. I haven't been in...

    Not Portland. Traffic there is horrible. Pound your head on the steering wheel and cry horrible.

    I would stay in the PNW, but look for a smaller town whose main reason for being is a university....

    In my personal experience, the most liberal among my acquaintances are also the ones who are most likely to get belligerent and start name calling. The most conservative among my acquaintances are...

    When I lived in Texas, people used to say, "There's a blue norther headed south from Canada and there's nothing between us and it but a barbed wire fence in Kansas." :)

    I would have real difficulty considering a trainer who spouted such outlandish nonsense to be a good trainer. This is ignorance on a very basic level. What else are they telling you that's wrong, but...

    I've lived in 5 different southern states and each state is unique. For example, winter in North Carolina is an entirely different proposition from winter in south Texas or winter in Florida. Summers...

    True. Turned out in the back pasture with a roundbale pretty much describes my equines' lives during the winter. In the summer it's even worse - they're turned out in the back pasture without any hay...

    I've got a FIMCO LG-8-P (second one down on this page: http://www.fimcoindustries.com/turf.html). I use it for spraying fencelines.

    I believe most online dating sites allow you to set your search parameters to identify only those folks who meet your preferred type. For example, I know FarmersOnly lets you specify race, religion,...

    Do you mean a trip with family, where your primary goals are to not say what you really think and help keep the peace, or a real vacation, where your primary goals are to relax and have fun?

    Amen. A coworker asked me last week if I boarded horses. I told him no way, no how. While I'm generally a firm believer in "never say never," I swear that I will NEVER board horses again.

    But, but, Holland has the wooden shoe factory and Dutch Village! :lol:

    The Dutch Village petting zoo was a highlight of my childhood years.

    Pentwater is my favorite place in the entire world. No joke. And Silver Lake gets an honorable mention based on my fascination with the sand dune moving into Silver Lake and swallowing houses.

    But the OP didn't ask how winter in Michigan compared to winter in Buffalo or Fargo. She asked about how a lifelong Southerner would adjust to and feel about living in Michigan. And I stand by my...

    I grew up mostly in MI and have many relatives who still live there. I have lived in FL for many years.

    I'm with G. You've got to go a lot further back in history than GWB to find the worst of this country's presidents.
