My neighbor hood is nice, it is tuning over in age. A lot of younger couples are moving in with young children, but a lot of people are tearing down the old cute houses and building huge houses in their place.

The police are very active and the neighborhood watch is active too. We watch out for each other!
There are places to work, and I'd love to work near home, however, the salaries that are being paid are not comparable to what I make now.
