My parents enjoy the area, at least every winter. *smile* Get ready to be surrounded by "snow-birds" from just about every point north of the Mason-Dixon line, at least for about half the year! Especially Jan thru Feb...

I suppose a lot of folks flock to Florida, too, so your probably used to that part.

I think if you keep the A/C cranked, it is a pretty nice area.

Yes. New job.

I lived there eight years ago. The summers are brutally hot. But the people are very nice and the job allows me to spend more tome with my family.

Nice, good luck!

AdminNightStrike September 16 2011 12:20 PM EDT

But dude, you live in an amazing place in south florida!

QBRanger September 16 2011 12:40 PM EDT

Yes, S. Fla is nice. However the people here are quite nasty and unfriendly at times.

I used to live in Scottsdale and always wanted to go back. Now I had the opportunity. No nights, call or weekends with my new job. More time to actually see my kids grow up.

i dont know the place, just wanted to say grats on the new job!

Thank you.

It is less money but at this point in my life, I really want to be able to see my kids grow up. They are what I live for now.

it definitely goes by fast, my baby is at college now and turned 19 last week. it will be gone in the blink of an eye!

You are not alone in telling me that. It is the main reason I have decided to take less money and have more time to spend with my kids.

If anyone here is in Phoenix, please drop me a line. I will have a nice warm bed for you.

Warning, it's warm because it's Ranger's bed. He's a snuggler.

And congrats on the job, but more congrats for keeping family first.
