it would be so fun to be around mountains again. I do love the people down here though, southern hospitality - they actually slow down and let you in if you turn on your blinker - imagine that! Nice conservative Texas, home of Ron Paul, where we don't have to worry about what our kids are taught in school, people go to church (when we first moved here, the neighbors came over and asked "which church do you go to?" instead of "do you go to church?" LOL!) Everyone goes somewhere, and I love that. Plus, we have the choice to leave the US if things get too bad up north
. Except for the occational hurricane, humidity, and bugs, things are pretty nice down here. (the humidity is actually good for your skin I'm finding out.) Anyways, compared to other areas... the evangelicals are not so bad to live by.
I was born in California, grew up in the Northwest, now I'm back to California. I love the people here - they actually accept people for who they are rather than putting them down. Nice diverse California, home of progressives like Arnold Schwartzenegger and Senator Feinstein. People are viewed equally, whether they go to church or not. There's no judging. There's certainly people who are friendlier, more helpful, and nicer than people who go to church and vice versa. Imagaine that! Plus, we too have the choice to leave the US, but why would we? The weather in California is the best in the nation (again, because of its diversity). No hurricans, humidity, or bugs. Anyway, compared to where the evangelicals are...this place is Paradise!
