    Hmph. I wish I could afford a ranch. Save it from the damn developers. We need to stop breeding (not you, in particular, just the species in general) stop building, and stop sprawling! Gah! About 20 or 30 miles east of here, they get snow. Close enough to work in the city, but there's some elbow room. Are your winters more sunny or more cloudy?

    L- deli roast beef and swiss cheese rolls. Now I don't feel so good. I don't want to know what they put in the roast beef.

    The kids are getting to play with the big toys today. I work within spitting distance of the Air Force Academy. Today, they're playing with jets. I still think I like seeing the "throw the kids out of perfectly good airplanes" days.

      Well, it is good to have talents.

      I can't say I would want a ranch. I would like a little cabin in the woods though. A cabin in the woods with no neighbors, a high speed internet connection, and easy access to decent restaurants, entertainment, and sources of groceries. So yeah, I guess I am sol.

      • Trouble with that is cabin in the woods + internet can be tricky. My grandma lives in the middle of the woods and satellite internet is the preferred/only reliable way to do it in her neck of Maine. Unfortunately there's no signal except at the top of the hill at the back of her (40 or 50 acre) property. My dad still dreams of hooking her place up so we can work from there and keep her company on occasion, but has done nothing to make this happen.

          No worries. I am just a loner in mind not in spirit or the other way around or something. I do not want to be bothered by people except when it is convenient, and I emphasize convenient. I'd make a shitty caveman.

          • If the cold weather and black flies would be suitable to you, I think you'd like the Maine environment. Seems like even the larger areas are very "small town" in demeanor. If it weren't for the cold and flies, I would want to move there, but my very un-Russian frame denies my heritage and I need the relative warmth of MA.

              Well, I just love cold and flies so...oh wait, no, I am not a fan of either. Also, I am not sure I could deal with the politics of the NE. Then again, my wife keeps bugging me to move to NY. Remind me why I married a communist, uh social democrat.

              • We could always use more canios in Alabama.
                If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

                  I do like the SE and lived in the FL Panhandle (aka. South South Alabama) for a long time. I've been looking for work out that way, just so far nothing. Hmm...I need to check to see what is open at Ft Rucker.

                  • I don't really like the politics anywhere, I don't think I'd be happy in any particular environment in that respect. Well, I'll be sure to remember to ask you where to go if I ever make it to the Southwest. I've experienced dry heat once in my life (LA (as in Los Angeles, not to be confused with the state of Louisiana)) and I loved it, I am quite tired of humidity. At least it's not as bad up here as it is in the Southeastern/"Deep South" states.

                      We have the Redstone Arsenal pretty dang close to us...is that in your line?

                        Yes, there's quite a difference in "whew, I'm hot" and "Holy crap I can't freakin' breath".

                        • I'd move to Maine in a minute. Even with black fly season. However, I am not yet independantly wealthy, and there are no jobs.

                          On the other hand, I love the wide open spaces out here. I mean, move a little east of the mountains or up in Wyomingish area and 1,000 acres is a hobby farm. You can't get 1,000 acres in Maine unless you're willing to go into the North Woods. Tempting, but there are lots of trees there, already. Now reforesting Wyoming on the other hand . . .

                          When I moved out here I would overhear people complaining about how humid it was. Huh? My sweat's still evaporating. That means it's not humid.

                          • mostly sunny, cloudy once in a while but that usually results in precipitation. politics are mostly great, except when it comes to women. otherwise, non-gender related politics are great.

                            we honeymooned in northern NY during part of black fly season.

                            • Went to Portland ME last August for a wedding, and loved the place. Had always wanted to visit Maine. Wedding was on Peaks Island in Casco Bay, unbelievably beautiful. Portland has a real nice vibe, and everything is walkind distance. Can't go a block without tripping over a great place to eat or cool little pub.

                              Best bet would be to live ~6 summer months in, say, Maine, and ~6 winter months in some Caribbean spot. Living off one's fabulous independent wealth, natch.

                                Sounds perfect! Ok, except for the women thing. But they can pretty much kiss my patootie on that score.

                                Hmm- I guess that just encourages staying indoors

                                My baby brother lives in Portland. Um, that Portland. The one on the Right Coast. I had tossed around the idea (you know, when I become a fabulously wealthy author) of having a townhouse in Boston for a few weeks/a month here and there throughout the year and my ranch out here. However, an apartment in Portland wouldn't be a bad idea either . . . Casco Bay is gorgeous.
