    What's your happy place?

    Mine is a world where I don't have to work cuz I haz lots of money AND wife doesn't have access to such money (never overestimate wife's spending abilities). Not having to work, I would ride every day for hours and then dedicate myself to my hobbies. Those hobbies include owning lots of computer equipment and gadgets, playing with them all they long.... especially that 12 tuner mythtv backend I always wanted to build, with the multi-terra array and a networketed frontend in every room.

    I would also dedicate lots of time to photography and video filming (PG tho, mostly my kids and my rides). And I would have a house with many rooms, something like 8 rooms or so, 3 stories... Cuz I want my office, a study room for the kidz, a gameroom and a movie room too, and maybe a kinky room.

    ...And I would travel a lot.

    When I'm down and feeling blue I often look at the lottery ticket in my pocket and think that my happy place awaits me... and imagine myself cycling around worry free singing hakuna matata.

    What about you?

    doesn't the IRS collect more than half of that lotto ticket?

    I'd get the f outta canada, probably live in the UK or with the kiwis
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    No pain.
    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if people could get to live suddenly, instead of just dying suddenly?

    Today it was my favorite little section of the bike loop in Central Park....pretty flat, and peaceful, with beautiful views of people enjoying the greenery.

    Later it was eating a really small but amazing recovery meal.

    finally it was greeting my wife when she came home from work.

    It ain't all beer and skittles - I overdid it with the weights this afternoon and I pulled some thing(s). But happy place is there if you can see it.

    With no challenges, life would be boring.

    IRS will get you... yes... but if you multiply the imaginary price amount by 2, the happy place survives.

    Canada too cold.
    UK... I can't understand what they say... really.

    SoCal sounds more like it for me. Way better than Florida... don't how much colder SoCal is tho.

    I would love a Spanish speaking country, but my children don't speak the language.

    live in UK, travel all over Europe with train and bike, but you get to come home to horrible meals and english speaking people.

    Where I am right now. It's not the best environment, but I do what I can.

    If I had a dream job, right now I would want to work as a conductor for New Jersey Transit.
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    SoCal gets downright nippy compared to Florida. Our winters are in the low 60's for the most part, dipping into the 50's a few times. It's drier here, we don't have the humidity (and the huge bugs that go with it). You would definitely get the chance to practice your Spanish here.
