Im representing the very small town of Crothersville, Indiana you don't have to say the exact town. My town is located in southern indiana. So you can just say Southern Indiana if thats where you are from Id like to see who is representing hubpages the most
Absolutely agree, love how fresh the air is in fall. Saw funniest commercial on TV ever... lady's walking down the street on a gorgeous ( looks like summer day) and 1 single leaf falls off a tree in front of her, she screams and runs the other way...Loved it
Bellingham is pretty cool; I like the downtown shops the best. We get a lot of BC shoppers at Costco and the mall on weekends, and our fair share of crazies, but I encourage you to check out downtown and Fairhaven, if you haven't. It's a lot less crazy over there.
Nice to meet you! I'm not sure when you'll be arriving in Vancouver but there is an awesome website called Priceline.com. You can enter your arrival dates and how many nights and it does a search of Hotels that will fit your budget. Enjoy your cruise, and have fun in Vancouver, it's a beautiful city. Liz-reviews
Incidentally, the Gorsedd is not a religious organisation, but a group of people who have contributed to the life, culture and society of Wales or have passed examinations in the Welsh language or music.
The small clip below shows another beautiful part of the ceremony, when the ArchDruid asks all present: "A oes heddwch?" (Is there peace?) and everyone cries out "Heddwch!" (peace).
I have a lot of family over that way. You would probably like it more living a little closer to Cinci or Louisville. I wouldn't live in direct louisville but they have some surrounding smaller towns that are pretty nice areas.
I lived in Lake Forest, just east of Middletown outside of Louisville. Not a bad area, but you need to get used to country clubs and golf courses, and all the personalities that come along with that, there
Southeast KY? I totally get that. I spent some time living in Lexington and Louisville as a kid, and we would go on field trips to Pine Mountain in the Southeast and I always thought "there's nothing out here!" but the mountains sure are pretty.
I use to live in Lexington. too busy and rushed. Lexington is where you go if you want to be a *mover and a shaker*. I live in the mountains for peace, creativity and solitude. It all depends on ones persepctive.
I don't know about other African countries but S.A is pretty advanced when it comes to city's and stuff so there is nothing special there. There are beautiful places for tourists like all the nature reserves and coastal cities and there are beautiful places where us locals like to chill. And like any country we have slums/ghettos but since there are many poor people there tends to be more than developed countries. My country is what you call a middle class country, so you have the luxuries of a rich country and the disadvantages of a poor country.
I'm from a town called Solihull, its a couple of miles south of Birmingham in the West Midlands, England. I live close to Stratford Upon Avon, birthplace of Shakespeare. Plus I've got three iconic castles near me, all with royal connections; Warwick Castle, Kenilworth Castle and Dudley Castle.
My thermostat is set to switch the heating on when the temperature drops below 16 deg C between 10am and midnight and below 9 deg C the rest of the time This keeps my energy bills at a sensible level. According to data from my supplier, my total energy use is about 40% of the average consumption for a house the size of mine, but with top-class insulation (and my insulation definitely is not top class).
I used to live in a house where the thermostat was set to 20 deg C. I felt exhausted most of the time and it was a relief to get away from those temperatures. My current settings were a bit of a shock in the first year. During that winter, I wore several layers, plus hat and gloves when I was indoors LOL!. Now I'm totally happy with just wearing one or two layers, but I also have a couple of blankets to put over my legs and round my shoulders as required, especially if I am still up working after the thermostat has dropped down to 9 degrees.
Hello Isen, France is a great country .Been going there since the 80's and I still love it even after almost 30 years later. I have met many good friends there who almost consider me a dear friend and a family.The Philippines is great too and very exotic with lots of beaches and people there are warm and hospitable.If you can handle the congestion (100 million population) ,I think you will have a great time if you go there.It is easy to make friends in the Philippines.You will love it.
Well if i ever get the money to go i will have to do that, sounds awesome for both places Its going to be a while for me to afford the trips but eventually one day. I would love to find a full time mission job in PI that would be awesome since i love helping people
isenhower,volunteering might be an alternative if you want to travel and mingle with the locals. I did a little bit in my town and a little in France but nothing big to brag about.I volunteered at Mother Teresa here in my town and in Marseille France.It was great. Prayed a lot too.And the sisters are just awesome
Why is winter more ideal? jw. And its getting colder here in Indiana too, leaves are starting to fall so winter is closing in. Im not much for the cold, I love the snow here in the winter but I'd rather be on a beach in Cali if I had the choice lol
I represent the wanderers in Australia - in the Kimberley crocodile territory at the moment & loving it ! Next year we are going to Britain / Europe / Canada if anyone would like to meet us or know any friends ofereing cheap rooms !
HEY FREE CAMPAUSSI, I WILL BE IN FRANCE ,AND NORTH AFRICA THE END OF JANUARY TO THE MIDDLE OF FEBRUARY. LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE THERE.I HAVE FRIENDS IN FRANCE WHO MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN OFFERING THEIR ROOMS. OR IF YOU EVER GO TO THE PHILIPPINES, YOU CAN STAY IN MY MOM'S HOUSE.NOBODY THERE BUT THE HOUSEKEEPER. YOU ONLY NEED TO PAY FOOD. LODGING IS FREE- IT'S ON ME.
Hello all , i am enjoying reading your articles, and learning a lot from so many of you. Thank you for this chance to do this. It is awesome weather here in White Rock, B.C. Sun and warmth. Soon we will get rain..... but for now it's wonderful. Hello to all you new comers, and thank you all seasoned writers:)
Greetings all, It is getting cool in British Columbia, I am south of Vancouver. If anyone else is nearby this area, (or not) I would still love to hear from you, Have an awesome day , and Happy writing.
I will do so, I didnt say I'd come over to her house, the only weirdo is you posting on others comments. I'm talking about meeting in a public place, and I have skype and a ton of friends on Facebook to show I'm a real person.
WA has the cleanest air I have ever had the pleasure of living in. I have lived all over the country. It's amazing; you can see a hundred miles on a clear (not rainy) day. Views are spectacular. Very green. Fall is beautiful, with splotches of red and orange maple among the evergreen trees. I was a little nervous being so close to all the huge, highly-visible volcanoes...but I've gotten used to it. Even if I can see them clearly, the nearest to me is still 40 miles.
Yankee's lol Dude I grew up in a town prolly 1/8th the size of yours. I grew up in the country and on a farm so I think you're probably more Yankee than I am. You say your a redneck but I bet you come from a town of more than 2000 people. People like you crack us up in the country lol
Right right lol haha North has nothing to do with it. It's a way of living, Florida is not a country boy state. Indiana is full of fields and corn. Theres a reason they talk about Indiana in country songs and not Florida lol
Helloo? Orange blossom Special. You just been on highways, junior. We hunt hogs with pistols around here. Sometimes, we just jump em' and cut their throat.Besides, you are bantering with a sockpuppet who will be banned any minute, now. It's all good. God bless you!
Okay, neither one of you are rednecks if you own a computer and internet access.
Some of my family members are rednecks: Their homes are mobile, they have multiple no-longer-running cars parked in their backyard, and they have old TVs with only the local, free, cable channels. They keep cats and dogs, and guns in the cabinet. Pitstols belong in the glovebox. They got goats. They do not have computers, nor care about internet communities. If they do, they've got dial-up and an an old boxy 90s computer. And use it to email, and only email. They also live in rural areas all over the country, including Florida.
I dont claim to be redneck? lol I know rednecks that have internet anyway lol Redneck doesnt mean you are not mechanically inclined...you have a strange few on rednecks which has nothing to do with rednecks. Everyone in my family owns 3 guns a piece lol and we always keep on in the glovebox but i know old ladies that do that. And we have no-longer running cars in the backyard too lol Internet doesnt make someone more inclined lol Just cause we might be redneck doesnt mean we arent sophisticated...My dads the biggest redneck I know and he is really smart. Being redneck has nothing to do with any of that. Im giving the other guy a hard time. I had a graduating class of 30 people. I claim to be a country boy. Because i grew up on a farm and I know the land. Hunt everyday. Yea I might be redneck. Your view of rednecks is way off though
Boy, I come from a long line of rednecks. My family owned slaves. Rednecks have no interest in arguing on the internet. I've got redneck family all over the country. They have no interest in arguing on online internet commuties. Maybe their young, teenage offspring do, but they aren't true rednecks. Redneck is a derogatory term for 'simple country folk' that 'sit on their porches' and 'own a lot of guns.' They keep to themselves, defend their land when needed. They don't do a whole lotta' reaching out, neither on the internet, nor in person.
lol again thats ur very small few...Lol and owned slaves is nothing to be proud of, and a lot of rednecks couldn't afford that, slave owning had a lot to do with rich familys not rednecks. And I defended my country...Rednecks reach out lol Bubba she came from a line of yankee rednecks somehow lol Im done arguing about this, your few of rednecks is really small and bad lol Have a great day, and god bless
Now the amish do exactly what you say. They dont have electricity and they keep to their self. So maybe you meant to so amish lol Because they dont take into internet and stuff like that, we have amish that live around here. Great people to talk to
It wont let me click on other comments DUH. The person that is confusing here is you. I wasn't talking to you in the first place, it was between bubba and I, so we wasn't talking to you to begin with..hmmm..You didnt say anything about electricity, I'm saying maybe thats what you meant because you have a poor view on what a redneck is. There's rednecks that became country music artists, so now they aren't rednecks in your view right lol Because they use the internet. Hank williams and others have twitter and other social media. They are rednecks but for some reason with your comments you dont seem to think so because if they were they had to keep to their self lol wow...Goodbye end of discussion
That wasn't obvious to me, actually. ("DUH," why else would I ask?)
Don't be so judgemental.
And who made you the forum police? If you didn't want someone jumping into your conversation, you should have kept it private. This is a public forum.
And no, I don't consider country artists to be rednecks. You say my "rich slave owning ancestors" aren't rednecks, yet the "rich" country artists are? Please. I never said anything about electricity. Oh, and all I said was that rednecks don't usually hang out on internet forums. It is not typical for them to sit in front of a computer all day.
