Hello all just moved to Lakewood NY
Hey.....good to see you post again STADD. You moved to some beautiful country. Haven't been by Lake Chatauqua since 2007.
Hope all goes well for you guys. I'm now living in Florida. (took your place) lol I'm in Bonita Springs for the last 23 months and do not want to see snow or ice again except on TV.
Welcome back ADD. We live in Lexington Virginia (pop 7000) which is 57 miles north of Roanoke in the Southwestern part of Virginia.
My wife, who I met when I was pioneering in Kane PA, and I purchased a home in the historic district that was built in 1879. This is a town founded in 1749 and from my office window I can see house's built in three different centuries. George Washington endowed what became Washington University and Robert Lee became president after the civil war and when he passed on....... the University was renamed Washington and Lee. Stonewall Jackson taught at our military school........ Virginia Military institute.
It was my honor to be asked to serve on the board of the Lexington Historic Foundation which I did for seven years helping to preserve historic buildings which contributed to our tourism which accounts for 12% of our employment.
So I can appreciate your pleasure in the historic past.
I've always enjoyed your posts........... it's good to have you post again.
Congratulations on the move!!
And yes, the Borg has gone on full scale money-grubbing since about mid 2014.
Those broadcasts ramped-up in late 2014. All they ever do is talk of money these days. Videos about giving ''valuable things'' and '''children giving ice cream money'' into contribution boxes.
Good luck with your new venture STA , I hope everything works out for you and the missus.
Hi ADD; I'm over in the Fingerlakes on Seneca Lake. Great wine country. In the 40 mile stretch from Geneva to Watkins Glen on Route 14 we have over 30 wineries, distilleries & microbreweries. Come on down this summer. Garlic Festival is 1st week in August at Fox Run Vineyards.
HappyDad I am glad you are enjoying FL. It does have some of the best eating places I know of. I just can't take the heat anymore. Working in that hot sun down there for over 40 years has taken it's toll. mrquik we just may come your way in Aug. Garlic is one of the crops I want to start growing for a living. Thank you all for the welcome back to the site. I have been lurking on it but just to busy to post. Still Totally ADD
