I have lived in alot of places and lived in the east for about 7 years and love it but right now I think I am where I am suppose to be. The growing season is just right and I can still tolerate the heat. We seem to have a little more winter than in years passed and that's a good thing. South Texas, about 5 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, couldn't be better.

Without getting technical. I suppose which side of the river has the most pull, to collect the taxes.
I visited Green Island Iowa. they even made their own traffic and street signs.
That was a number of years ago but I doubt if any well to do person would have parted with the money that they worship so much for such a noble cause as street signs and markers, to benefit the town. LOL

The Rock Island Arsenal also has the honor of having the only bridge in the US, and maybe the world, that rotates 360 degrees. It is not uncommon, when the the bridge is closed, for people, who have never seen it, to run up to the part that rotates and watch it turning. It takes about 15 minutes.

IN the river itself. There's a few bridges around the bayous that swing out completely sideways, don't know if they go all the way around, maybe just 180?

Then we have a China Town (or maybe they call it Oriental Town) but the street signs are all in an oriental language as well as English. Houston is said to be 600 sq. miles and I don't know how many inhabitants. Lots, I guess.

Africa - South Africa

About 25 years ago, I worked for an international company and had an assignment with a team in South Africa. At that time, apartheid was in full force. I tried to tell my nice midwestern company that, as a black woman, I would not be welcome there. No one would listen or believe me.We flew in on a private jet. Upon landing, we were told that if I left the plan I would be arrested. We never could figure out for what - I think it was just that I was on a plane with whites. They could not arrest me on the plane since it was considered US soil. Anyway, I had to spend a week on this plane. They finally had to hire another US plane, park it very, very close to the fist one, extend a catwalk from one to the other and I walked across it.

When the team I was with finally returned home, they were very impressed with the country. All I ever saw of it was the insides of 2 planes! I'd love to go back & see what it's really like.

West of the Mississippi now in Denver, but I used to live in St. Paul, Minnesota, which was on the eastern banks of the Mississippi. Minneapolis is just across the river on the western banks. Yes, there are islands in the Mississippi. One I remember is Harriet Island close to St. Paul. It was filled in in the 50s, but it still qualifies as an island since that's what it was to begin with.

Jo-Ann,
I'm so sorry you had such a horrible experience! Luckily that is all in the past now.

One thing that is for sure, is the fact that once you have breathed and smelled Africa, you can't just walk away. So many people who immigrated, came back after a few years, not because of bad experiences in the other countries, but because Africa is in their blood. One has to experience it in order to understand it...

Hope you can come and visit our beautiful country one day, and enjoy our hospitality.

Never in my wildest dreams did I know that when I moved back home and remodeled a farm house with no wind breaks, the daily winds would average in the spring about 40+mph. Today all the poly wrapped around the front porch for the winter is blowing off. Home is great but I despise this wind.

If anyone had been living out here, they hopefully would have planted more trees. At my age, I won't be around to even benefit from planting trees right now and I know that my adult kids have much attachment to where I grew up.

edited to say the news came on locally to say the winds are 50+mph today!! I know you envy me!

Good point, dparsons. Dry it is, a far cry from the humidity of the midwest. But I don't miss it. I do agree with gessiegal about the wind! We have it here too. Today's wind gusts are 50+ mph. Wind is the biggest problem I have in gardening on my balcony. Up here the gusts are higher. They blew the doors off my little greenhouse and I can't get them back on because they were ripped too.

We live in a somewhat rural area but we are in "the village of Havelock." It is actually officially Havelock, Belmont, Methuen township. Everything is literally about 2 blocks away. Anything else desired requires a trip out of the village. We have 700 acres of Conservation/Wetland about 1/2 block north of us. We also have a park that leads into about 15 acres of wooded area that has trails. Great place to live if you like quiet and good neighbours. At least that has been our experience.

Live here with one DH, two dogs and two domestic rabbits that live indoors with us in their cages but do get to roam around periodically

Almost forgot the tropical fish. About 15 of them, various kinds. They are DH's.

I live on a barrier island on the southern part of North Carolina's coast. It's called Pleasure Island (to help increase tourism, our only "industry") and is 8 miles long and maybe 3/4 mile wide.
Love it here. We're 2 blocks from the ocean in a small (1 stoplight) town with a wonderful city, Wilmington, just 15 minutes away.
The winter temps are similar to those in a zone 9, but our winers last longer than a typical zone 9, so I have to wrap up a lot of my favorite plants. It's worth it.

Re: an island in the Mississippi - I'd think that you would consider what state you lived in and whether that state was considered east or west of the MS. For example, if your island was part of Tennessee, you'd say that you were east of the MS and if your island was part of Missouri, you'd say that you lived west of the MS.

I'm from Missouri, in north of St Louis. Our house was the last house in the city.our next-door-neighbors lived in St Louis County. We lived on a high hill, and could see the Mississippi (and the distant downtown area of St. Louis from our kitchen window. My best friend and her family and I frequently went to the river to fish, collect things that washed up, and wade.

I once got out of the river with a tiny leech attached to my leg. I pulled it off,and my leg bled and bled! Leeches inject or deposit an anti coagulent. I'm glad it was a tiny leech, not like Humphry Bogart's in the African Queen!!! But his did not continue to bleed...his were fake.

Back to the islands in the Mississippi: Just across from where we played, was Mosenthien Island. Sand bars form in the Mississippi, and if they are large enough, trees begin to grow, and they may be named. So, YES,there are islands in the Big Muddy.

Another feature of the Mississippi was what my friends and I called "canvas"... when the Mississippi floods, it deposits silt on its banks. Gravity pulls the water out of the silt, and sun bakes the top layer, forming canvas, a flexible surface that we children could walk on. Occasionally,we might break through the canvas, and we'd find ourselves in black ooze up to our knees or higher. Gross!!!

One last comment: My friend's mom and aunt used to swim the Mississippi from the Missouri side to the Illinois side, a feat I would never try!

ezgroonly, I find it hard to believe that anyone could swim across the Mississippi River near St. Louis & live to talk about it because the undertow is so strong. It's much safer to cross via one of the two pedestrian/bike trail bridges. Chouteau Island (man made) was recently annexed by the city of Madison, IL. The Chain of Rocks Canal forms the eastern shoreline. I grew up next to the levee which was completed 2 years before I was born. The Chain of Rocks Bridge (owned by Madison, IL since 1939) provides a panoramic view of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers confluence on the NW side. For many years, farms existed on this island, but no one moved back after the flood of 1993; even though the land is still farmed. Now it's a favorite place for Eagle watching off the Old Chain of Rocks bridge; part of the Lewis & Clark bike trail & the old historic Route 66. My grand-daughter at 3 years old rode her tricycle the entire length of the bridge across & back. Here's the facts & note the photo of the bridge (quite a swim & trike ride at this location):

Several members tried cherry blossoms, but they did not open in time for the show. Neither did our chaenomeles, or quince. There was a lot of forsythia and a single pussy willow. I won a blue ribbon for my Cornus mas, or a yellow dogwood cousin. If you could have entered your branch, you would have won a blue ribbon for first place!

Also, I thought the Hawaii volcanoes picture was great! My cousin in Alaska is getting ashed on by Mt. Redoubt.

That forsythias are in their yellow blooms is a sign of spring right on the way. Here is a picture of the forsythia taken in my school garden.
And when the Chinese Pure Brightness, one of the 24 solar periods, falling on April 4 this year, we will get ready for this year's ground seed sowing, for from this time on there will no more frost, and the ground temperatures will stay constantly warm.
This year I take in two more kid plants: one is the sensitive plant mimosa which I get from my fellow teacher Mr Wang, and the other is lamb's ears. This is sent to me as a gift from DG WantabeGardener. By doing so, I expect more kids in the vancity will come and call at my yarden, thus bringing more happy atmosphere to my yarden.

My guess is, it's a statistical quirk -- whatever statistical tool is being used to tally number of votes = percentage of votes probably does not even register, say, fewer than 10? Because that is less than 1% of the total!

So, for 3 votes, it would have to be showing some fraction of 1%. If 100 percent = 642 votes, 6.42 votes is one percent. So 3 is less than .5%.

Asia, the winner in the mini-percentage category, with 6 votes, is still less than 1%, though it's getting close. One more vote for Asia would put it into the visible measure, past the fractions of the first percentile (if I am using that term right, been a long time).

So basically, it is rounding off and not giving fractions of one percent.

ROTFL!!!!! Only you would think of that, Dahlia. We could test it out, Asia only needs four more votes to become 1%...

Here is my 8-Digit zip code and my latitude/longitude.

32952-2625... 28.351765/ -80.667574

Using Google Earth, Google Street View etc., it's easy for you to see where I am. Zooming in or out will allow you to see my house and yard, my neighborhood, distance from the ocean, how far I am from Disneyworld, Orlando, the Indian River Lagoon or the Kennedy Space Center etc, etc.

I'd like to see where other Forum Posters actually are located in Florida, California, India, Brazil, Australia, Costa Rica, Hawai'i, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Spain, etc. and what your neighborhood/area looks like.

Questions like these would be easily answered: "Mmmm...Merritt Island..is that on the west coast of Florida or the east?...Is Brisbane in the tropics?..is Cairns?...is he in inland Brazil or coastal?...Where is Northumberland, how about Sri Lanka?, near Madagascar?"...How far does tropicbreeze live from Humpty Doo?

Of course, for those of you who are in the Federal Witness Protection Program, or on the lam, or for those who don't want us to see what you are growing other than palms and tropicals-you might not want to provide this location info.

I noticed that after doing a li'l figuring...(rounding off)...but it shouldn't be doing so, IMHO.
(At least the # of votes shows!)

Dave & Co. probably just don't realize it's working that way.

Can you tell I was bored yesterday? (Ü)

Crappola how did you know I'm on the lam OldNed? I always look everyone up with googlemap guy if I'm not familar with where they live but googleearth is definitely better.

Kyla I was kinda hoping Admin might chime in before we resort to cheating. I will contact them.

We are prevented from cheating anyway because voting is over. I tried. ;-)

Tee hee Kyla the Daring. Terry advises that, as you suspected, the voting machine doesn't recognize fractions which is why they show as 0%.

Well, no one would have ever known, if suddenly , the population of Asia increased enough to register on the DG percentile scale, who might have voted there! Could be anybody!

We better be careful, we may start being inspired to manipulate results. But probably not. ;-)

I was hoping that at the end of voting the machine could make the fractions 1% and adjust the highest percentage accordingly. I mean would the USA-east Mississippians even notice a 4% drop?

hahahaha Dahlia, we will just have to have a talk with the machine. Machine obviously does not understand that even one gardener counts, eh?
