Hi Pink! We moved to Saline, Michigan. Thanks for asking! I am enjoying a virtually crime free living and hardly a sound! I will always love Fallbrook. It has a special place in my heart. My husband received a job promotion and that is what landed us here. The good Lord is taking great care of our family! :) Hi Debbie!

Wow Mom of Lots, that is great!! I would never have guessed Michigan. My son in law got a nice promotion to the Carolina's, and I have to say that my daughter has never been happier. She is a California girl but is so happy with the schools as well as the friendly people and her husband loves his job!! Congratulation to you and your family. Keep safe in the love of the Lord.

@Pink..I'm contemplating a move to the Carolinas as well....Sick of California's taxes, business UNfriendly climate, and the voters who are too stupid to figure out that 25 years of Democratic control in NOT working.

You would love it Me. It is beautiful there. Nice people, great schools. (of course you and I are past worrying about the right schools) cost of housing is less, and you get a much bigger home on acreage there for what you pay for a small tract home here. A lot of businesses have moved there. Business and jobs are thriving. My son is lwa is particularly thrilled with the boating and fishing (they live on a lake) and he says they have the best golf courses in the country!! We visited them several times and love it. We would move there ourselves but still have other kids and grandkids here....

Thanks Pink! Yes, sometimes it's the changes we fight that end up being the biggest blessings! Change is hard, but once you're on the other side.....ahhhhhh.... :)

@Pink......Sounds nice. I've had several friends move there in the past few years...they all say the same thing that you did....they love it.

You are so right about the schools :-)

I guess I have some thinking to do next year....I've been here going on 32 years....time for a change I think.

My dear fellow Fallbrookers, can you imagine if we, as a nation, spent all these billions of dollars on us, the people, instead of our foolish military-industrial complex? Can you imagine the good it would do? Schools, universal health care, job creation, much-needed social services, shorter work week, environmental causes, public transportation, and on and on it goes. Can you imagine what good $10 billion alone would do, the amount that was the cost of the Iraq War at its height?

Well, our nation's sad state of affairs is the result of a nation that pours money into its military-industrial complex with dire consequences yet to come, I'm sure. We just cannot learn.
