    He has good days and bad, but at 93 it beats the alternative.

    I have a high energy toddler running around my house now so my happy place is the bathroom. :meh:

    It used to be the town where I was born, but now that drugs and poverty have ruined the city and what's left of my family living there, I don't have a particular place to go to be happy.
    Someone else mentioned it, but being with my wife is what I'd consider my happy place.

    Every college football fan owes it to themselves to visit Martin Stadium at least once for a game.

    I don't really have a particular place. It seems to come when I am not paying attention and just living life.
    Of course, I do like burrito stands/trucks/parlors. :D

    I like going down to my office very early in the morning. Everything is quiet and I can see the light slowly change out my window. I can read, pray, meditate and listen to spiritual music. I love starting the day that way.

    Sorry to hear about your town. I hear it is similar where I grew up in North Long Beach. Don't know for sure because it is 400 miles south and I seldom go there.
     
  17. Wait a minute. I just read your story about the car being broken into yesterday. That does not sound like a good neighborhood. I don't get to North Long Beach often so I can't comment on the neighborhood. With that said, the downtown area of Long Beach has been completely revitalized and now is a trendy place to visit.
    Pine Street is full of upscale restaurants and now has expensive luxury condos nearby.

    San Francisco is an urban area. Where the incident took place is not a bad area but it is good to pay attention no matter where you are in a crowded city. NEVER leave anything visible inside of a parked car. If you do, you are asking for a smashed window.
    North Long Beach was very blue collar when I was a kid. Lots of low riders. We thought kids from middle class areas were rich.

    And hear the wind whispering in the pines...my favourite sound after the sound of a beer being opened!
