    Barb, I have done both. I prefer the city to the country, and suburbia is hands down better than either. Some people really do prefer urban living, and for very valid reasons.

    I haven't? Hm, maybe not. That's right, you live near Atlanta don't you? Maybe the next time me and the boy go down there we'll have to meet for dinner or something.

    I have done both, more in the country than in the city, and without question I would be perfectly happy never living in the country again. It was far to boring and quiet for me.

    Re: If you had to choose one of these two places to live for the rest of your life...

    I used to live on 40acres +/-, had a 4-5 acre seasonal pond, garden, room for chickens and turkeys, that all backed up to some thick woods.
    Man do I miss it.

    Now I live in a townhouse complex, with about 20 neighbors, all within approximately 100ft of me.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I feel buried alive in the suburbs.

    ♪ New York is where I'd rather stay.
    I get allergic smelling hay.
    I just adore a penthouse view.
    Dah-ling I love you but give me Park Avenue. ♫

    I disagree, I can't help but find that the city and suburbs are suffocating my creativeness.

    You need to be more specific: I said nothing about creativity, what exactly do you disagree with?

    Living in the city, to protect the wooded areas.

    There is a still a lot to explore and discover, even in our known wooded areas.
    When I lived on my land I made sure to keep it as clean as possible but some people need wide open spaces.
