    In Md you're talking $1 - $2 million to get a pretty nice place. Northern Neck of Virginia is more rural so you can get a pretty kick ass place for $600,000 - $1,000,000 and the property taxes are near half that of MD.


    Any of these places will get you fresh crab, oysters, clams and fish right off your dock.

    Re: There's More To Life Than Politics

    This thread makes me wonder,...who was happier before they got more involved in politics or before they came to this board?


    This place is like crack cocaine to me. Addictive as hell but not vert good for me.

    Have a cocktail or two, maybe three, while doing the above.
    Cook some fabulous meals. And get the blender going for amazing cocktails, or two. Maybe three.
    Read a good book.

    And you?
    The reality is that when there is someone (Trump) that is purposely trying to hurt you, your family, your neighbors and your community there is little you have time for, other than to concentrate on survival and getting rid of the problem.
    My guiding principles in life are to be honest, genuine, thoughtful and caring. Money is important but secondary.

    Excellent question.
    I grew up in a political junkie family, so politics was dinner table fare.
    Naturally, as a youth I eventually rebelled as young men do, part of which consisted of not giving a damn about politics.
    Sure, I continued to vote and follow stuff but only on the surface.
    I'd learned a lesson about how activist groups get derailed at the National Peace Action Coalition "March on Washington" in 1971. CPUSA had basically entered as parasites and taken over.
    So I went pretty much "radio silence" on politics for many years.

    Then I married my second wife. Suddenly politics was having a direct effect on my life, specifically my wife and her son, both disabled and our son a gravely ill child.
    And that is when it became clear to me that if you're not at the table, you're probably on the menu.

    Happier?
    No matter what has happened, or will happen, being with my wife and family has been the best twenty years of my life.

    And you?
    Prior to my health related forced semi-retirement I would be tinkering with my cameras, or my computer workstation, or possibly playing some music on my piano or Hammond organ clone, perhaps with a couple of buddies.
    Or I might be fiddling around with various house projects.
    I still do a little bit of film stuff but really just small nothing projects, mostly for the fun of it. My income from selling a couple of commercial retail DVD projects and from real property keeps the wolf from the door along with what my wife has coming in, but I miss being on a production set with a fine crew.

    These last few months my "full time job" has been caregiver to my lovely wife but now that she is on the mend and feeling much better she doesn't need me as much.
    Thank you Long Beach VA once again, for giving her life back to her.

    DP is one of my enjoyable time wasters.
    Books, meals, cooking, strolling around SoCal, sure of course. No better place to do it than California.

    Many self help gurus will tell you to not get too involved in politics.

    If I wasn't complaining about Trump, I'd be complaining about the next fattest fascist in line. Is Gingrich going to run again? His infidelities seem less- I don't know- "impressive" now that the orange one has set the ethics bar so low. I shudder to think of who will run next in the GOP's ass slide into political infamy. I'm sure it will be a winner...at any cost.

    Politics becomes boring after a while. I haven't paid much attention to it for the last few months. I have better things to do, like enjoy retirement I'll let the goofy-ass leftists whinge about it like little bitches.

    MAGA baby!!

    Oh the woes of poor Trump haters. Can't even address a simple thread about after hour fun without their poor lives being threatened because of an election. It must suck to be you dude.
