#1Son and I are leaving tomorrow for our drive across country and back. We're going to try to go through as many states as we can.
What is your opinion of the state of your state? Have things gotten better or worse in the past few years...has the weather changed, has your opinion of living where you do changed? What state do you live in.
I live in Central NJ. Many people have lost their jobs here. The pharmaceutical companies who have their homebases here, have been particularly hard on the employment lines. My friend, Pete, who is a computer genious has just been evicted from his apartment (of 12 years), because he couldnt pay the rent (he is our age.)
Last summer was wet and cold and the fruit did not ripen. This year it is sunny and very hot. The plums are just coming in and they are wildly sweet. The berries came in early and people seem to be getting their fall allergies early.
Thats the state of my state. (it's ok to have wildly different opinions, even if you live next door to one another.) What is the State of Your State?
