There are special indulgences granted to those living in Florida against their will. Check with your pastor for specifics.

If there is anything positive about Florida, it's that I'll bet bread rises quickly in that moist heat. Other than that, you have my sincere condolences and wishes for a speedy commutation of your sentence.

My special indulgence is my dad, my niece (she's 14 now) and the beautiful sunsets. And I could NEVER live in 'landlocked' state/country. Although I loved S.Dakota badlands, Utah, Nevada, and Arizona. I need THE BEACH!

Joe, I love your philosophy that everything revolves around bread! It is very refreshing!

Oh, and JoeV. No, I haven't made bread any good since I'm here.
I don't know why. Thought it was the water - very chlorinated, so I bought purified, nope. Same flour, same yeast, even bought wheat gluten with vitamin C. But is still spreads sideways, instead of rising.

Born in State College, PA - lived there for the first 20 years of my life. Moved to Atlanta, Ga 30 years ago and consider it my home. Even though I was born in and raised in the north, I consider myself a southerner now. Probably will retire to the North Georgia Mountains.

O.K. I'll admit the sunsets are awesome, but I hate the beach. I have a beach about 5 minutes away from me and never go unless the temperture drops below 50 degrees F or there's a strong storm coming. I hate salt water and the sand combination. Give me chlorine, lots and lots of chlorine.

Hi all.

I am new to the forum and thought this may be a good place to start!

I was born in South West Wales (UK), I now live in South East Wales. Have lived all over South Wales (which isn't very exciting I know!) and also Ireland. I would live anywhere in the world, as long as I was happy...home is where the heart is afterall! But preferably by the sea.

Looking forward to chatting to you all.
