    Reasons

    I have a fairly active life for a 69 year old somewhat retired guy. Spending time with my lovely wife. Trying to wear out my 3 yr.old Golden mix dog by walking him an average of 9 miles a day. Working 20 hours a week with my brother-in law. Mowing my lawn and maintaining my property and swimming pool ( finally put to bed until May sometime ). Meeting my sons for breakfast a couple of times a week. So and so on. sbhonline is my time to chill out and dream about the next vacation. Thanks for putting up with my many posts.

    Hi Hawke,
    I am 75 and with three grandchildren born within one year. I am considering fleeing the country, so my wife and I do not have to attend to their kids. Do you have any suggestions as to flee areas? We have considered an efficiency in Nome.
    Suggestions are appreciated.
    BTW: I am the guy that said it is French law that children are not permitted on St Barts.

    Years ago we told our youngest son that children were not allowed on St Martin! So funny.

    Our story came to an end when a bunkmate at sleepaway camp told him that he had in fact stayed there.

    Oh well, good try. He was about 15 when he finally got to visit with us there.

    Hi Andy,
    So come again. We would love to host you, despite your barking at me about Pittsburgh. We think you would be amazed how this city has turned itself around despite its incompetent government. Silicon Valley is so expensive they could not hire from CMU and PITT they needed a lower cost place for new hires. ERGO Pittsburgh.
    So come and visit. We will host.

    We have been to Pittsburgh on several occasions and loved it. The only complaint is the terrible towels as we live in Indianapolis (Colts!)

    Having lived in Pittsburgh and now living near Philadelphia I'll take Pittsburgh any day.

    I grew up near Pittsburgh, in the Greensburg area. Pittsburgh hosts an annual Arts Festival in June that is wonderful. I visited family this year while attending the festival. It is also a great college town; Pitt, CMU, Duquesne and others are located there. Our daughter graduated from Duquesne a few years ago. The city also has the cultural district with several theaters. We recently spent a few days there and saw The Lion King (play) at The Benedum Theatre.

    I'm proud to be from Pennsylvania. A great percentage of the people from that state are incredibly awesome, in my humble opinion.
