    Good spot you picked. You avoid the evacuations associated with the Atlantic side hurricanes and it’s only a quick skip to the east coast for sharks and wrecks.

    I’m up in Tampa so it’s a long slog to get to Jupiter and south. I intend to discover some of that famous Florida fresh water diving and exploit my relative proximity.

    When that top tax rate, under a Biden presidency -- regardless of your yea or nay toward Uncle Joe -- is slated to reach a combined 58-62% -- oh, there will be New Yorkers -- foregetaboutit!

    I know a couple of people from Staten Island, who are going to be placing their houses on the market, come New Years . . .

    Welcome. I escaped Illinois, and moved (back) to FL 5 yrs ago. We always have a steady influx of people moving here.

    maybe Illinois will eventually figure out how to manage their state before Everyone leaves.

    Florida? What a hell hole. Its full of mosquitoes, no see ums, scorpions, all sorts of invasive species like pythons, huge lizards, citrus greening, yankees, damn yankees not to mention anyone that can row a boat a few hundred miles. Alligators, water moccasins, red tide, brain eating amoeba, zika virus, west nile.. Lots of retired people, all driving 20mph below the speed limit. Sinkholes, swamps, cities pumping sewage underground, drinking water shortages, hell the high point in the south part of the state is a landfill.

    If you can brave all of that, welcome to Florida.

    You’ll still need proof that your FloGrown tattoo was inked before COVID.

    For a lack of state income taxes -- and I pay through the f**king nose in California -- I'd live in Yoda's mother-in-law flat, along with the snakes, on that jungle planet . . .
