Where would you like to live?

neilb@uk
leaving aside the fact that we'd never prise most of you Yanks out of your native home - with the exception of jck who wants to live in Andrea Corr's knickers - where would you like to live?

I found my ideal place down on the Somerset levels, Curry Mallet, just a mile from Beercrocombe.

The fact that it's deep cider country doesn't give me too much of a problem.

    Usually when you think you are being funny you cut and paste to at least 10 different posts. So disappointing, what's wrong with you? No tasteless grade 9 jokes for us to goan at and click past?

    Or is this an indication of your own lack of humour compared to the stuff you cut and paste that you actually think is funnier?

    I mean seriously, I can take a 'good' slam when it is 'good', in fact I like to see such humour thrown at me, its refreshing and I love to be burned by quick retorts and wit.

    But that's just elementary shcool 'I know you are but what am I" BS.

    Next time ask someone funny to help you out, that's just sad.

    And again with more baseless bullsh1t that effortlessly flows from your fingers.

    Typos and oddball spelling?

    Oddball spelling in what way?

    Is it the fact that I add a U to words because I am both English and live in Canada?

    You should be able to get your head around that one or is Canadian spelling new to you this week?

    Typos? I missed the letter R in one word, did it make it a bit difficult for you to comprehend?

    And judging from dozens of past Friday Yuks, you are the one who simply cuts and pastes and endless line of pathetic, tasteless jokes, probably how you knew I was talking about you.

    You must have; otherwise how else would you have known they were cut and paste and/or tasteless and pathetic??? I believe that sort of comes under the heading of being hoist on one's own petard, although I doubt you're capable of grasping the reference without Googling it.

    Well I can see you are still quite **** retentive but it appears you need a change to your medication. Ativan isn't cutting it for you anymore; you probably need a switch to Prozac. However, that might interfere with the Cialis or Viagra that you use to offset your other obvious shortcomings. How else to explain a so obviously demented phsyce, except as compensation for physical limitations or personality disorders on a scale requiring professional treatment. Are you still doing weird things to small animals and are they letting you out without your keeper yet??? Is that why you had to leave Port Hardy in such a rush??? I guess it was before they could catch on to you.

    And judging from dozens of past Friday Yuks, you are the one who simply cuts and pastes and endless line of pathetic, tasteless jokes

    Just a tiny sample of what I was referring to. I can call up lots more if you want me to; some in which you have even acknowledged your typos and spelling errors.

    Hmmmmm??? Once again, it looks like you've gone and tripped over your own ****; doesn't it??

    BTW, thats not the only error in your little tirade. English??? Yours is barely intelligble and certainly far from intelligent. It might be nice if you learned how to use it while expressing and demonstrating the astonishing quantity of BS you manage to generate considering you're hampered by the minuscule amount of intellect you seem to possess.

    It seems you have absolutely nothing better to do except to wait for my posts so as to make some sort of childish comment. Well here you go; **** your mind then. Most of us have learned to ignore most of your more egregious utterings, although you do occasionally make some sense on the occasional topic.

    Hmmm? Come to think of it; MAYBE that's how you've become such an expert on cut and paste. That's it!!! That's the answer!!! I see it all now. When Oz posts without any spelling errors and/or typos and uses proper sentence structure, then it's because he is cut and pasting. How else to explain it???

    Well you probably could but that goes without saying I think.

    as for reading each one, don't flatter yourself. When reading through the Friday Yuk in PRINT mode, it always seems that as soon as I read a really stupid, old, tasteless and disrespectful joke, you name is attached to it. That's when you know you've read too far, the next 20 will be more of the same, time to find a new topic. You have some delusion that you are being smart or funny and as a result you post crap that is offensive to some readers or painfully acceptable to others (as they know Dawg is always that way).

    You have no class and no tact.

    Your 'style' is that of a drunk pervert, looming around Victoria Secret.

    You're not funny so you have to cut and paste jokes, you feel that contributing one tasteless joke is not enough, so you cut and paste everything offensive you can find so as to make sure you offend everyone equally.

    Face it, you are just an old, spastic, loser looking to hang with younger people to make yourself feel somewhat useful or relevant in life.

    There's no hope for you and nothing you can do to change it. You've probably always been a loser, an outcast, loner that nobody can stomach, other than to be polite to you for some odd reason they never understand.

    As for your other nonsense, get bent. I'm not wasting time with your lies and insanity AGAIN. You don't know what you are saying half the time anyway, when you do its a pure lie or something someone else has already said which you feel makes you seem unique, hip, trendy and cool.

    Sorry but you just come across like a bitter old **** that couldn't get laid if his life depended on it.

    One minute you are saying I need Viagra for my shortcomings, the next you are saying I tripped on my ****, make up your mind, or is it whatever suits your ever changing and inconsistent focus?

    Perhaps a little Alzheimer's kicking in, or maybe a lot.

    I really have nothing more to say to you, you were born to be a classless bottom feeder and fool nobody.

    F*ck off loser, get a real life instead of trying to simply discount everyone else's.

    What are you proclaiming yourself to be an expert on today or this week??? It might give us a slant on where you're going to jump to next. As it is, nobody takes you very seriously, and tends to write you off as nothing but a know-it-all blowhard.

    Anyway, not to worry. Starting Monday, I'll be out of here for the next several weeks.

    BTW you should take note of this very carefully. I only responded to your attack on me; I didn't start this little flame session that you seem so intent on conducting. Your conduct just confirms my diagnosis of OCD as several others have so infomed me. Now back to ignoring you once again.

    the old cripple has gone down that road before. When called to task he lied incessantly for nearly two weeks, never showed his pathetic little head (as he said he would) and was proven beyond any doubt to have lied repeatedly throughout his wasteful bullsh1t. He was caught out being a liar so many times that he eventually had to laugh at himself and accept that he was full of ****.

    That's why I don't take him seriously, as if anyone actually does.

    When asked to put his money where his mouth is, he just snivels and whines and never comes through as he promises.

    He's liar, a coward and a pathetic loser, not worth my or anyone's time.

    An example of his lies (or senility) was illustrated in his last post.

    I had said to another peer: "Some people
    Only have grey matter in order to stop the wind whistling between their ears. Kind of a stopper more than a brain though."

    Sleeping **** jumped right in with: "Explaining yourself, perhaps???"

    nobody had spoke to him about him or was sharing discussion with him, he just jumped right in with his little flame, thinking he was being clever.

    Now in his last post he says: "BTW you should take note of this very carefully. I only responded to your attack on me; I didn't start this little flame session that you seem so intent on conducting. Your conduct just confirms my diagnosis of OCD as several others have so infomed me. Now back to ignoring you once again"

    Give me a place with decent sized mountains, plains, rivers and forests nearby and a city that has many of the amenities of a major metropolitan area and very few of the problems.

    With modern weather forecasting, you can see a hurricane coming for days; there almost no excuse for a physically capable thinking being to get caught unprepared for one. Earthquakes are still pretty unpredictable.

    I went through a number of earthquakes when the family lived in Southern California. Unless you happen to be at the epicenter, or in one of those places where the shaking is amplified by soil conditions, it isn't too bad. The further you are away from the epicenter, the less you feel the quake, usually. You can always prepare for most problems and you don't usually have to evacuate the area after a quake.

    One of my problems with hurricanes is frequency. While earthquakes affect large areas, you are rarely close to the epicenter of a big one. A century or more can go by before you're at 'ground zero'.

    Another is the amount of water involved with a hurricane. I'd be worried about the family's library being ruined by wind borne rain or flooding.

    Then there is the 'sunbelt' factor. I don't like the warm temperatures people seek in the sunbelt.

    Not sure if does or not... but Cades Cove is considered a national park - though some of the land in the area is privately owned and has been that way for hundreds of years.

    We normally try to go up to Gatlinburg every Sept and Cades Cove is one of the places we always go to - they have some breath taking views, waterfalls, hiking trails (you do have to hike to the waterfalls) - it's just a real peaceful place to go and relax.

    Not sure if you can view this - but this is a few pictures I've taken while there - http://travel.webshots.com/album/554517457RCibpx

    normally I try and time it for when Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge has its Fall Grand Rod Run which is in Sept (for those who love Hot Rod's).

    If you go, to get to Cades Cove you'd start at the vistors center in Townsend, TN (they have some great free maps you can pick up for your trip up) - Timing it for either early morning or a couple hours from dusk, stands a better chance of seeing deer, bears, etc...

    End of Sept, early Oct is a wonderful time to go as well as the leaves are starting to chasnge, though in Mid-Sept when I normally go is when the Butterflies are in their mating season, so you see thousands of these everywhere - all over the roads, in the sky,etc... So don't forget the camera

    Two places com eto mind instantly and those are exactly the thought i had inmy head while there.

    BC Interior, nobody cares who you are or whereyo came from, but ther are interested in what you do as everyone helps each other out.

    Government, while based several thousand kilometers away is rearely heard of or spoken about, it just exists somewhere else far away.

    Race and religion are completely irrelevant, land is breathtaking, and I do mean absolutely mouth agape breathtaking.

    Its ALL about building your own world, your own business, fulfilling yoru own desires.

    You get immense tracts of land for dirt cheap and can still be within a half day drive of a semi major city. I was just looking at over 85 acres with a hobby farm, two buildings (main home and smaller 2 bedroom guest house) and 30'X30' garage for just short of $100K.


    Either that or Sweden, Austria and some other smaller European countries let you do your own thing and they are also gorgeous.

    I've got no problems with the thread morphing into "nice places to live". You couldn't get me out of England without dynamite and I like the Big City nearby so I'm reasonably content with where I am now. If I saw a better job - or retired - I reckon I'd move to the south coast.

    Oh, and it should NOT be in an area that gets hurricanes, typhoons or tornadoes. (Earthquakes I can handle...)

    With modern weather forecasting, you can see a hurricane coming for days; there almost no excuse for a physically capable thinking being to get caught unprepared for one. Earthquakes are still pretty unpredictable.

    I went through a number of earthquakes when the family lived in Southern California. Unless you happen to be at the epicenter, or in one of those places where the shaking is amplified by soil conditions, it isn't too bad. The further you are away from the epicenter, the less you feel the quake, usually. You can always prepare for most problems and you don't usually have to evacuate the area after a quake.

    One of my problems with hurricanes is frequency. While earthquakes affect large areas, you are rarely close to the epicenter of a big one. A century or more can go by before you're at 'ground zero'.

    Another is the amount of water involved with a hurricane. I'd be worried about the family's library being ruined by wind borne rain or flooding.

    Then there is the 'sunbelt' factor. I don't like the warm temperatures people seek in the sunbelt.

    Very rural MO or AR. Off the grid. Half a day, at least from anywhere. No flight path overhead. Quiet.

    A few friends who think as I do. Internet would be sweet, but not necessary.

    For starters.

    Paradise City
    yes, and my version is where the woman are pretty and plentiful, there are NO politicians, electronics actually perform as they should, theives are killed, ID theives are tortured first, and anyone that I dont like gets killed (or booted from the city)(my discretion)...

    Oh, and the weather will always be between 60-90 degrees F. Nice big lake (clean), several rivers (clean), insects (any that bug me) do not exist, good sized mountains close by, etc...

    Ok, how detailed are we getting on this, cause I can go on for days!

    Would you allow night?

    Would you live in the lake so women on the mountain could take pictures when you appear from time to time?

    and should not exceed 65 deg. F.

    I wouldnt live IN the lake, but close by.

    Only flooding would happen if I approve nature to do it.

    Very near a place I know very, very well.

    I would go to Cuba myself - great place at night!

    I'd love to live in Cades Cove - within a log cabin nestled within the mountains with a view that overlooks the Great Smokey Mountains from the balcony out my backdoor and the beautiful waterfalls and nature that habits this area.

    neighbourhood of the snake river that ends up in the Columbia river?
    Real great surroundings and views overthere :) Allthough in winter I'm not sure if I would like the temperature.

    Not sure if does or not... but Cades Cove is considered a national park - though some of the land in the area is privately owned and has been that way for hundreds of years.

    We normally try to go up to Gatlinburg every Sept and Cades Cove is one of the places we always go to - they have some breath taking views, waterfalls, hiking trails (you do have to hike to the waterfalls) - it's just a real peaceful place to go and relax.

    Not sure if you can view this - but this is a few pictures I've taken while there - http://travel.webshots.com/album/554517457RCibpx

    normally I try and time it for when Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge has its Fall Grand Rod Run which is in Sept (for those who love Hot Rod's).

    If you go, to get to Cades Cove you'd start at the vistors center in Townsend, TN (they have some great free maps you can pick up for your trip up) - Timing it for either early morning or a couple hours from dusk, stands a better chance of seeing deer, bears, etc...

    End of Sept, early Oct is a wonderful time to go as well as the leaves are starting to chasnge, though in Mid-Sept when I normally go is when the Butterflies are in their mating season, so you see thousands of these everywhere - all over the roads, in the sky,etc... So don't forget the camera

    Where the Snake meets the Columbia - gets a wee bit cold and snowy during the winter, but hot and dry during the summer.

    Lots of wind there too, good place for a wind-electric farm to supplement the hydro-power. Of course, these wind-mills are nothing like those in the Netherlands :)

    ..... with extraordinary beauty. It could be mountains or the beach, a lake or the plains, a city or in the country.

    .....where people eagerly accept the concept of self-responsibility.

    .....where class-envy doesn't exist.

    .....where freedom and individual liberty trumps all else.

    .....where government is about as small as a thimble.

    .....where people look to themselves to solve problems instead of the government.

    .....where parents actually care about their kids, and take full responsibility to raise them.

    .....where a person can aspire to do grand things without being criticized for being greedy.

    .....where people truly are judged by the content of their character, and not by the color of their skin - in every way possible.

    .....where people are encouraged to live up to their potential, and not be convinced they're victims.

    .....where tolerance of thought is prevalent.

    .....where people don't presume to force others to capitulate to their will.

    Where is that place? I know where it used to be, but I've lost my way.

    Two places com eto mind instantly and those are exactly the thought i had inmy head while there.

    BC Interior, nobody cares who you are or whereyo came from, but ther are interested in what you do as everyone helps each other out.

    Government, while based several thousand kilometers away is rearely heard of or spoken about, it just exists somewhere else far away.

    Race and religion are completely irrelevant, land is breathtaking, and I do mean absolutely mouth agape breathtaking.

    Its ALL about building your own world, your own business, fulfilling yoru own desires.

    You get immense tracts of land for dirt cheap and can still be within a half day drive of a semi major city. I was just looking at over 85 acres with a hobby farm, two buildings (main home and smaller 2 bedroom guest house) and 30'X30' garage for just short of $100K.


    Either that or Sweden, Austria and some other smaller European countries let you do your own thing and they are also gorgeous.

    The thread-starter was just a simple play on the place-names, curry and beer, to see if any peers knew if there were any other such felicitous juxtapositions.

    As for moving there? I don't think that there is an Indian restaurant or take-away in Curry Mallet and neither village has a pub! :_|

    Neil

    I've got no problems with the thread morphing into "nice places to live". You couldn't get me out of England without dynamite and I like the Big City nearby so I'm reasonably content with where I am now. If I saw a better job - or retired - I reckon I'd move to the south coast.

    Because there aren't enough jobs in my field there, and I feel I'm too old to change horses at this point. While its a great area (PEI), unemployment is pretty high, even before the recession.

    If I had enough money saved, I'd take a simple job and great scenery, but can't make it at this point.

    Add proximity to family, and our dream-place to live will remain just that for most - a dream.

    In my case, however, I actually started a why and why not list last night. And while the why nots outnumber the whys, at least at this point, if I were to place a priority number to each reason, the score is probably pretty close. Time will tell.

    I would like to live in country Victoria (Australia) down near the 12 Apostles (or however many there are now)...

    but after the recent bush fires... I don't know.
