    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...

    Exton: the Crossroads

    Though I haven't lived there for over 26 years and haven't been back in over ten, part of me still considers Exton, PA my home. It was pretty rural back then, just a bit of urban chaos coming on at the junction of routes 30 and 100 in the past decade that I lived there. I love...

    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!
