    It's grown a lot since then Frank, so many plazas and restaurants and shops and malls and subdivisions. I think if I wanted to try every place to eat here it would take me a couple years eating out every day.

    It's just too hot in the summer for me but you live in AZ and that gets a little hotter.

    I was born in Portland Oregon and grew up in various parts of Oregon. We seemed to move every 2 years when I was in school. Portland, Salem, Dallas, North Bend, Glasgow, Coos Bay, Florence, Bend, Clackamas, Oregon City, Stayton. Cashmere Washington for a short time, staying with my mom's relatives. We moved to California about 30 years ago. I loved California right from the first day I arrived but I still get homesick for Oregon, especially Portland and Florence. We also lived 1 year in Grand Junction Colorado and that's where our youngest son was born 41 years ago. I liked Colorado. Worst 18 months of my life was spent in a little town outside of Muskogee OK. No offense to anyone from that part of the country but it wasn't my cup of tea.

    Besides living in all those places I also traveled a lot with my husband on his job the last 15 years before he retired. I've been in about 3/4 of the states and I really loved traveling. We went by car and plane both. FL, N.C., GA were my favorite places.

    I grew up in Erie Pennsylvania, which I believe has the title of snowiest city in the U.S. Erie is a very blustery place, However, the summers there were laid back and idyllic. I would love to have a summer place there if I could afford it, because my elderly parents live there still, and I have several family members in the area. I love to go to visit as often as possible. I have lived in Virginia since 1984. I would have no problem living in another place, but my son is here, and I guess it is home now.

    I also was born in northern Illinois, in a little town called Lake Villa. I also was married in 1963. Then I moved to southern California high desert. now in Tennessee. I am considering moving to Oregon.
