Like you have much room to talk, you live in Michigan. Home of over regulation, union dues and that war zone known as Detroit.

About the only saving grace is Michigan's proximity to Ohio.

Michigan for the most part is NOT over regulated.
We have zero emissions and safety inspections for non commercial vehicles.
Freeway speed limits are merely suggestions.... it's not uncommon for rush hour traffic on I-75 to be going over 90mph.
About the only bad things here are the high fuel taxes and the vast UNDERTAXATION of the wealthy.

If you like your benefits for your job you should drop to your knees to THANK THE UNIONS.

BLOWhio is a fetid cesspool.
I'll take Detroit over that fecal-pit cleveland.

Will you just stay put somewhere?

My son took me on a "bucket list" tour of northern California last October so I could see the giant redwoods at least once before I assume room temperature. We stayed at the Historic Benbow Inn near Garberville, toured the Avenue of the Giants and then made a side trip up to Eureka just for the hell of it. We discovered a great oyster bar https://www.cafewaterfronteureka.com/ and had some fantastic Alaskan Halibut, then went up the coast to Moonstone Beach and wet our feet in the Pacific Ocean.

Say what you will about California but I'd go back in a heartbeat if I had the money.

Happy Birthday Doug!

Thank you friend.

Eureka is a beautiful place right where the redwoods meet the ocean. If someone can't appreciate something like that, I can only think they must be fit to be institutionalized. Who wouldn't want a drink by the bay in a nice little town at sunset?

Well, I'm not really doing that anymore. I'm just doing art, I'm in the Novaspace gallery now.

I'm calling BS on this statement. When I've driven in MI the troopers with the idiotic Police Squad-esque single bubble gum machine light on top were all over the place ticketing speeders. Luckily I use a high end detector on long trips and didn't get nabbed.
