: : There ARE things that are good about it, too, and it would be refreshing to see you occasionally say something about them.
: Good morning, Marcia and everyone!
: Here is my list of things I love on this side of the Atlantic, it's totally incomplete, but here it goes:
: I looove the gorgeous landscapes, the desert, the blue sky of Arizona, mint-chocolate chip ice-cream, the easy going lifestyle, the optimism, tacos and chimichangas, pumkin pie and banana-nut muffins, picknicks at the park, I like the store opening hours, that people are mostly friendly, that houses are affordable, good music radio stations, porches, all-you-can-eat restaurants, orange-spice tea, that telephone bills list each long distance call, corn chips and salsa, the low taxes, that kids can learn to play instruments in school, that internet surfing is so cheap, the pretty bathrooms, that you can have coffee at bookstores...
: Running out of breath...
: So, any better? :-)
: Take care,
I love your list. It is always good to get a European's point of view of life in America.
Speaking of bookstores, I found a great bookstore while looking for a breakfast place in Phoenix. It is called "Changing Hands Bookstore". I am not exactly sure where it was, but it was great to eat a bite and then browse the bookshelves. There were some great finds and I added quite a bit to my already overloaded bookshelves.
Have a great day,
