Hi Irish. Did you grow up in Miami or are you like so many others, a transplant? Nothing derogatory here, just a question. I grew up in Miami when most of Miami was like living in the country. Do you know where Greynolds Park is in North Miami Beach? As built up as it now, when I was growing up there, there was a stable just up the street from the main entrance to the park, I learned to ride horses there. Cutler Ridge was waaay out in the country. Homstead AFB was like another state it was so far away. But the people have never changed. Even if they have moved there from New York, or anyplace else. For some reason they slow down to meet the pace of life, much nicer than what I have to deal with up here. Yes there are cane fields, but if you want your sugar for coffee or anything else, it has to grow somewhere right? Cows are a major part of the state's economy and manages to keep a lot of peoople off welfare. So lets not get rid of them either. Tallahassee has some very pretty parts to it if you only look around. From the Killarn section to Wakulla Springs. Don't you think that orange groves and grapefruit groves in bloom or when they have the ripe fruit on the trees looks nice? And don't you think that EVERY state has parts that you might call ordinary? People are just one of the many things that make Florida attractive. And you, my dear, are one of them.
