Not only have we got a new granddaughter born in New York . Not only that,
but to make matters worse Manhattan of all places .
So not only are we faced with the major problem of teaching the child all
things southern, where the rest of the family hails from but now we can't
even say when asked where she came from "somwhere just north [in a very
quiet tone] of the Mason Dixon line.
Now to compound the problem , the wife who is up there [I thought trying to
get an early jump on the situation] has suddenly taken a liking to New
Jersey, saying she would not mind living there .
Tell me, what else can go wrong, the sky is falling .....mjh
I'll have to second Leon's advice. My wife was born and raised here in the
big ATL. I'm a yankee transplant from Buffalo. We had to go to Buffalo for
a funeral over Christmas back in 2001...and if any of y'all live in that
vicinity, you will remember that a whole bunch of snow fell that week.
Needless to say that cured SWMBO from ever wanting to live up north. It was
a bittersweet thing for me...but I think I'll have to take bbq and sweet tea
over good hockey anyday...although my old lacrosse sticks are pretty much
useless here :)
Clint its not about paying to live in the south, its heretage, the stars and
bars, fried ocra, barbeque, catfish suppers, RC cola ,coke , playing golf in
december, the Masters having a workshop in the back of the yard with heat
and AC laughing at the yankees when the power goes out. having the best
college teams in the country [football that is ] going to the "Thrashers "
game when its a 100 degrees in the shade . It,s not about paying to be
anywhere Clint ,it"s all of the above and more.
And hey Clint I'm an immigrant, just imagine how the locals feelabout
situations like this ,it"s just very distressing...
By the way Georgia will be number one this season, mark my words... mjh
Mike, we are so glad you could get a visa to come to the South and
visit!! If you pass the test (and you have a good start), you "may"
can get a green card or even citizenship (maybe).

Jersey! Yuck. I had to spend too many summer vacations in Lodi (near
Pasaic??) Just take her around the the seedier areas which happens to
be most of NJ so she can get a look at the dark underbelly of that
State. High taxes, high crime, no RKBA.
These comments from a Michigander who would take any part of the south
over having to live in NJ.
I wish you well,

No thanks. Been there, done that. Our wonderful "contractor-grade" AC unit
went tango-uniform at the end of May and it took six days to get a new unit
installed. Had to buy a portable unit to put in the bedroom just to get
some sleep. But some good came out of it...that portable unit now cools the

Hey I'm from Jersey and you don't know what your talking about. Jersey has
more country in it than Michigan ever had. I can probably name 10 cities in
Michigan that would fall into the definition of seedier areas.
You can lead them to LINUX
but you can't make them THINK.
