Miami must be one of the worst cities in Fl to live in; of course up here in Jacksonville we are on murder # 76, an all time record.  The outragous growth since hosting a Super Bowl has to come in play.
As for hurricanes, how many came up thru central Fl a couple years ago?  One of my brothers had just sold his home in Port St. Lucie and moved back to Sandford(near Orlando) and before he could get moved in a storm came thru and blew a tree down on his new house, he is thankful the damge wasn't too serious.  It's the price of paradise as they say; I'm beginingg to think with the over population and crime(and storms) it is a paradise lost.

Hi Thomas,

Congrats on the sale of your house. Let go of that stress and enjoy yourself. As far as your past, that's just what it is, the PAST. You and Rasheen love each other and you both know that something like that would never happen again. As long as you both know the truth, screw what other people think. That can be easier said that done sometimes. Anyway, Congrats on selling the house. I wish I could move sometimes. Take care.

Hello Thomas it is Eldon Born and raised in Miami, Florida. I know exactly what you are talking about and what you have been through. Fortunately in my life guns didn't come in as a factor only while I was at the shooting range.

Whoot!!! You are BLESSED to have sold your house in Miami. I just helped my parents move from there and now they are up in Central Florida. You will love it up here it is nothing like Miami.

Best wishes and tell Rasheen we love her.

Congratulations Thomas (Tom? Tommy?  ;D ) That's wonderful news, even though I'm partial to big cities. It's just that I don't trust air I can't see. J.
Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

Hi Thomas.


That is great news about selling the house. And moving to the country?  You'll never regret it.  Michael and I moved up here (Redbluff, CA.  pop.  13,000) from the SF Bay Area and have never regretted it.

And you have had quite a year.  It's been great knowing you.  One day, soon after you started posting,  I was talking (pm'ng) with Little Steven (Fearless) and I mentioned to him how I just thought you seemed like a really nice guy and even though I had never seen your picture and knew that you were "straight", that you were my type.  Steven started laughing and said the same thing.  Something about your postings just being so earthy and truthful.  We both could see that.

And I've always been fond of Rasheen and Malachi.  The two of you together just makes me feel so good. 

Congratulations!!

robert

Hi Tom,

Like Jay, I am not a country person and do not trust air, I can not see.  I was in a small town once and it smelled like cows!  If we didn't have our dreams, we would have nothing at all because our dreams are the last thing that can be taken away.

Like you, I have made a major step for myself and am not turning back.  I want to wish you and Rasheen the very best in your new life.  Have the best day
Michael

Hello Tom,

 Congratulations on the selling of your home !! It's a great feeling isn't it !! We bought our first home , here in Pinellas County (Dunedin) back in 1981 and sold it, in 1997. We are still in Pinellas County Palm Harbor) We're on the east side of 19. which saves us somewhat on our insurance, as we are not in a flood zone.( plus we are also in the last evac zone)

I hear you about the insurance insurance issues. Fortunately we own in a townhouse community. Our monthly maintenance is 205.00 per month. Out of that, comes the cost of insuring the structures. So that helps to keep our rates down. We pay approx 850.00 a year for insurance. A lot of people in this area, as throughout differant areas of the state have been dropped by their carriers. One person we know, their insurance went up from about 1,000.00 a year to almost 5,000.00 a year. Not good news. Lets hope whoever gets into office this year takes on the insurance industry in this state, it's long overdue.


Best of luck in home searching !! I moved down here in 1980, and it amazes me how much this area has been built up. Even Pasco county, which is just 10 miles north of us is booming !!! There's a lot of people moving down here to Florida on a daily basis !! I would love to live on a few acres of land, and have some space...



Good Luck------Ray

Hello Thomas, it is Eldon. My folks moved to Lake Placid, Florida which is about (10) ten miles South of Sebring. They (we) love it. It is so quiet and peacful here. As a matter of fact, our Realtor was Dan from All About Realty, Inc. He can get you a great deal on your house with some land around it.

Call him and tell him Eldon referred you to him and he will work with you all the way including the financing if needed. he is only 4% commission. if you need his number, let me know and I will look it up for you. He is cool and he will not give you the runaround. There's tons of properties for sale up here. It is a buyer's market. We got the best deal on our place.

There are very few people who you owe an explanation to, and none of them are here in this forum, (well except for maybe one young lady).  I see no reason to discuss this matter here. 

This forum is very accepting of our many faults and mistakes, (lord knows I've made a bunch myself).

Focusing on the past to prevent a repeat of your mistakes is good.  But it's not good if you're only going to continue to beat yourself up over it.

Not beating myself up Cliff...  just stating the facts because from my knowledge a few may have them misconstrued...  clarity my friend, clarity is all I wanted...  I think I'm confused now..  What were we talking about? Just kidding..
