What's The Most Inconvenient Thing About The Place Where You Now Live?
When I first read this question, all I could think of was lack of transportation- no buses.
However, after reading another member's post about mashed potatoes, a second example came to mind: new apartment is my first experience ever with an electric stove. And am not coping with it very well at all!
while i do enjoy being hosted at several locations, one place is owned by a dear friend who'd let me sleep with his girlfriend so that he can "cheat" with his ex-wife... awkward.
We are coming up on 30 years in this house. It’s the longest either of us have lived in one place. It’s a nice house, no real complaints about it as a structure, its design, layout, etc. The only thing is, it is really too big for us (3,800 sq.ft.). We bought some property several years back with the intention of downsizing but found out, even with the property already paid for, we would spend more to have a house half the size built, it just galled us so much we sold the property. So, instead our idea is to try to just declutter as much as we can by getting rid of stuff. We might end up with some empty rooms but so what? It’s hard getting off the couch though.
My current home was remodeled by an investor before I bought it from him. It had a brand new electric stove. I never used it. I brought my stove with me and have a big propane tank feeding it. I'll put a wood stove outside and use it before I'll cook with electric.
Now, when talking about the city we live in, way to many complaints for me to mention. Inconvenient? No, just don't like where we live anymore.
The town were I have lived for 45 years has grown exponentially over the past decade. It is crowded and hard to cross many streets if walking. Crime has also increased over that time. As I have said before, the city line butts up to my northern fence line at the farm now.
We have lived in this house for 30 years, and when we purchased it it was truly in the wilderness. As roads have improved and more people have fled the disaster that is Anchorage, we are no longer in the wilderness by our standards. When we moved here, we had no neighbors we could see. That is no longer the case. I am sad that things are getting more crowded, but I don't know what I would have done during the Covid thing if I lived in an apartment. We have a few acres to roam, and life is still relatively free here.
The most inconvenient thing about where we live is that if a nuclear war were to occur, we’d be about the first one’s to get hit.
The most convenient thing about where we live however, is if we were ever in a nuclear war, we’d be about the first one’s to get hit.
In other words, it’s a wash.
Seriously though, I hate cities but overall, Huntsville, Alabama is a pretty good place to live.
I recently read that Houston is in the "Top Five Most Likely to be Nuked". I suppose due to all the refineries lining the ship channel. That sounds fine to me; I'd prefer to be incinerated than to live in the aftermath.
Similar to others, our house is much too big for the two of us now, but has been mortgage-free since 2009. We'd like to downsize but the thought of packing up all this "stuff" to move while potential buyers poke around in my closets makes me want to take a nap.
Our current location is good... close enough to all the "big city amenities" and the world-renowned medical center, but far enough in the 'burbs to be quiet and peaceful.
But FEMA just said if we get nuked, go indoors, stay indoors and wait for instructions.
I think duck and cover was about as good.
From what I have read from "nuclear war experts", cities are no longer the primary first-strike targets. Strategic military installations would go first on both sides, and the cities would then be held hostage for surrender.
It’s not like the Post we live across from is keeping it a secret from the rest of the world that it’s heavily armed. I mean, Redstone Arsenal kinda says it all. Might as well paint a big red target in the middle of the post.
I’d like the area to have a community centre like the centre we dance at in Adelaide which offers…
New vogue dancing
Mature movers exercise program
indoor carpet bowls (bias),
I copied this off their website
where it costs as little as $2 each to cover any costs of attending most of the activities including our dancing
We have nothing like that here and the council have no interest in even considering the idea
