    I'm a Marylander living in Georgia, but I go to Gainesville every month or two for medical appointments. While in Florida, I usually stay for a week or two in Dunnellon, not far from MadJack.

    Gainesville here, though I went to high school years ago ('73-'76) in Neptune Beach.

    I have a buddy/former bandmate in Auggie. Writes for the paper.

    Brian, my son lives in Gainesville, has a death metal band called Hot Graves. He's also building a recording studio that will be up and running sometime this year.
    I'm down in the Treasure Coast area, near Ft. Pierce.

    Living in NC, but grew up in Florida. A recently deceased cousin left me 5+ acres near Tallahassee. Trying to talk my wife into moving.

    I lived in Northern Va my whole life but moved to North Port about 13 months ago. It is a difficult adjustment, but I'm hanging in there.

    If this is the Sunshine state, why has it rained every day for 6 weeks?

    LOL . . . yeah I hear ya, but I wish things would dry out a little. My grass grows so fast I can hardly keep up with it, especially since my yard is still squishey under the mower wheels. :lol:

    I have a Panther in the woods behind my house that chases the rabbits that live under my shed, it ran 10-12 feet in front of me in a pursuit. :eek:

    Not to mention the Raccoons and Opossums that visit at night :rolleyes: but I had those in Va.

    Overall I am getting acclimated to Florida and will eventually adapt to life here. I can handle the rain, and the wildlife but the FIRE ANTS :mad: have got to go! :twisted:

    Hey Bill!

    Damn, small world.

    I wrote up a Hot Graves show a year or two ago for my column in Our Town magazine. They were great.
