    This is home. I wish this wasn't a visit.

    I would give up everything I've created and been through or worked at in Georgia to come back home. This is home. I can't stop imagining how things would be if I came back. I'd be hard but I'd be happy.

    Still Home To Me

    Sure, I live in Maryland now (via 17 years in exile in Texas), but I still think of Pennsylvania as home. Maryland is a close copy, though, especially where I live - between D.C. and Baltimore. It is just rural enough to remind me where I grew up. I am around 30 to 40 minutes...

    Montgomery County

    I'm not a native; I was transferred (by the company I work for) to PA about 5 years ago and have lived in Montgomery County ever since.  I like it' my wife has got used to it and it's a great place to raise kids -- much better than a big city.  Greetings neighbors!
