That's a keeper there, Stitchele.

she does. and she could likely easily find work there in her field (stenography). i could get a job there too, i imagine. but all of our family is here. would be very hard to extricate, and i would not want to do that to the kids. they have friends and schools here, and most importantly, both sets of grandparents, thank g-d, may they live and be well. not likely id move now, unless an absurd opportunity presented itself,.

Ah, didn't know you were brought up in Baltimore, thought you moved there to work and that your kids were not already out of Kindergarten.
How long does it take one to travel from the places people live at in NY to Baltimore?
Any sense in going by car or better to go by train?

well, i moved here when i was 4. i consider myself still to be a denver-ite (my birth city, and i vist at least once a year to see family there), but i certainly grew up in bmore, and my kids are growing up here. i have 2 kids out of kindergaten at present.

its about 3-4 hours train or car. if traveling alone, train is generally better, depending on how much getting around in NYC you plan. if travelling with a family, the train can get pricey, and car is better for us.

also, making me very happy, i presented a challenge to my synagogue congregation 2 years ago. for anyone who was interested, to take a charity box designated to our synagogue, and put some change in it every day. the goal was to raise $10,000.00 a year. we have now succeeded both years, and brought in a total of over $21,000.00 so far.

i am very proud of the congregation, and their participation and efforts.

3-4h? Wow, judging from the distance I thought it would be 2h but I am used to highways without speed limits and high speed Inter City Express trains.
Didn't you just tell us you were 30? You have kids older than 4-5?
Wow, life definitely is different in the US than it is over here.
I am going to a university of ~25.000 students and I rarely see buggies.
If I recall correctly from an articel I read some weeks ago women with masters or doctor degrees tend to give birth to children no earlier than in their mid-late thirties in Germany, the fathers tend to be even older.
Acadamic couples also have a mere ~1.1 kids each, politics are discussing this social and demographic problem a lot.
Also, I am 24, I can't imagine having children within the next 5 years. I have ~3 more years of studies in front of me and I really want to be in a stable situation financially, which is a very German thing to do wink.gif, before I even consider this big step in my life.
Propably one of the rare good things to not have to worry about this while being single.

I think I could retire solely from the money earned of selling it to fellow forvmista.

120mph/200kmh is nice steady progress.
I have to find the video of Walter Röhrl reviewing an Audi or Porsche just to tell us alongside that 155mph was his favourite 'relaxed' traveling speed happy.gif

I got a compliment on my tie today. (It is a Leonard Paris tie, in the typical Leonard Paris style.) I have never been complimented on this one before. I am happy for my tie, which deserved the compliment.

(After receiving the compliment, my tie exclaimed "Kick ass!!!" I didn't think that was appropriate, and said as much.)
