I'd be there in a sec if it was that easy..and if I didn't mind being seen in my bikini Embarassed lol

Hey Eric I wanted to ask you..I noticed in some of your photos you have window units for your a/c. I've always wondered, is it typical up in your area not to have central a/c? Down here it's so hot that we have one big central unit outside or two big units depending on the size of the house - like our house, we have one unit for downstairs and one unit for upstairs.

I'm always curious what different things are like in other parts of the country.

I'm in LA and central air is pretty common.. however, I live ina very old house (oldest in my neighborhood) and it doesn't. Needless to say... I have many fans. HAHAH

Jaay - It is FAR more common in my area for the homes to have central air. But my home, like Babs' is pretty old, built in the mid 1920's (all the siding is new, may not look too old but it is. There's alot of time and expense associated with the installation of central air and we have plenty of window units so we just go with them to save the expense. Although, every spring, when I take the units out of the attic, I swear I will look into putting in central because I have this premonition of how I will buy the farm ends with me, laying on the hallway floor, under the attic door with a 100lb air conditioner crushing the old ribcage.......I'm serious about that, morbid?

Ah, I understand Eric, and Babette..it's definitely a costly and extensive thing to add central air after a house is built. It's done alot here with the older homes during total renovations just because it gets SO hot here during the summer. The cost and difficulty of changing over to central also has something to do with the type of heating you have. But anyway, I was just curious Eric because I know that eventhough you're north of us it still can get pretty darn hot there during the summer.

This is a pretty interesting top... here we are.. three people across the States and we're curious about how we all live.. I think about this a lot. I see people all the time (especially when I go to places I've never been) and I think .. these people were born and have lived thier whole lives never knowing I even existed... it really puts things into perspective... WOW.. I think it's also a little depressing.. sorry about that. HAHAHAH

Anyhow... it's cool that we don't know each other, but we know these details ... it's pretty facination. Am I making any sense?

Yes, it gets VERY humid in these parts!

Totally makes sense to me. I like to learn about the different geographic lifestyles of people i enjoy talking to. Anyone want to know anything about New Jersey, ask away! I'm not counting on too many questions though, lol!

You've got humidity? Eric if it's anything like down here I feel for you, really I do. I've known people who moved here from down in places like Miami, Florida and were completely miserable because of the summer humidity. Growing up here I've grown use to it but it literally takes your breath away sometimes. Is it like that up where you are too?
