Almost half of Americans want to live somewhere else
Living in Las Vegas appeals more to men than women. Affluent adults are twice as likely as poorer folks to want to live in Boston. Young people like big cities such as New York and Los Angeles. More Americans would rather live in a place with more McDonald's than one with more Starbucks.

Those are some of the findings of a Pew Research Center survey out today on where Americans would most like to live. Whether they favor cities, suburbs or the countryside, almost half wish they lived somewhere else, the report found. City dwellers are more likely to dream of living somewhere else, and men in rural areas are far happier living there than women.

"There are some more fundamental differences between men and women," says Rich Morin, senior editor of the Pew Research Center survey. "Different cities seem to appeal to different partisan ideological groups. … People who are drawn to cities are typically ...

Mike from GA., you have at least we Nebraskans and Georgians have two things in common, we have two weeks each of spring and fall, if we're lucky. Except it is just brutally hot or cold here. Though today would make that a falsehood since it is in the 50's. Streakers' weather in this state.

The other half would too.

But their wives won't let them.

I must wait to see heaven, I served in the U.S. Army for several years. Germany and Tacoma Wash. were beautiful. Alabama, not so much. LOL. However, for me and my family, we love living in Kentucky. Right now we are cold and sitting under a blanket of ice and snow. But in a month or two it will be beautiful. I love it here.

Of course I would rather be living in Heaven or on Earth during Christ's reign, but that being said I never have cared much for the weather in GA at all. The summers are always long and brutally hot and muggy. The fall and the spring weather come and go in the blink of an eye. Finally, the winter, which I do prefer over the summer, is usually just cold enough to be miserable On the plus side most of GA avoids major environmental disasters except for tornados from time to time. I just hate the heat...I start to feel sad just thinking about it.

Guess I am part of the moving 50%. Ah, but Jim, Minnesota has some nice summers. I suppose Nebraska does also. I like variations so maybe a move to Nebraska is on order. I passed through Nebraska once. Not a bad place.

I must admit that the thought of living in the heavenly 'city' never appealed to me until I took the time to figure out just how big it will be:

Revelation 21:
16And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

There will probably be room for some rural living there - or more likely, it will be so much better than city living here that I won't mind.

Yes, Neil, and usually for the right reasons.

Well, just heard a tagline on Paul Harvey today, "God made Minnesota for people who never wanted to encounter summer weather" And of course the comment for Nebraska, "Tired of the weather? wait a moment, it will change."

If I lived in Boston or some of those other cities mentioned, I would want to live somewhere else.

Philippians 4:
11Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therein to be content. 12I know how to be abased, and I know also how to abound: in everything and in all things have I learned the secret both to be filled and to be hungry, both to abound and to be in want. 13I can do all things in him that strengthened me.

Well, I don't live in South Dakota, and I don't live in New Jersey, so I guess I live somewhere else.

ALL Christians should desire to live somewhere else ...

Heb 11:16a "But as it is, they desire a better country, that is a heavenly one."

Heb 13:14 "For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come."
