You do whatever you want to do. If you want to stay in the NW, good for you. You want to come down here, good for you. Don't let others tell you what to like, what to do, where to go. Not sure how this got off on this tangent but you have been wanting to come here for years and if you changed your mind tomorrow it is none of anybody's business. But, don't let anyone have more influence over you than you. We all have opinions but as a person who has lived in 11 cities (including Monterey) home is where your heart is. Home is where you want to be. You do what you want to do. To hell with all of us. You Keep Pounding lilsmitty.
I repeat, that was a good article, very well written. Anyone that thinks Ron can't be a disciplinarian, when warranted, has not watched, even casually a Panthers game since Ron got here. Now that I think of it, I think I am going to go over to hawksnest.com and register as RahRahSeattle and see if I can get the same reaction.
Just googled it copied and pasted a bunch of crap I didn't really even read. Monterey, California is really nice. Why don't you go live there? If cost of living is no object but you want to stay in the US, it's great!
