I Prefer Pittsburgh

The bloggers at AskCherlock.com stopped by and left a comment on the about page directing us to this post.  It is a great story of living in California but deciding to move back to Pittsburgh for the community that exists here.

Now here I am, many years later, recovering from SAD and still shivering in April. I can tell you, though, there is no place I would rather live. I look at our three-generation neighborhoods, houses built one hundred years ago on steep hillsides, and enjoy the excitement of a small city gaining a cosmopolitan feel through the arts and a re-staging of metropolitan Pittsburgh. We also have chipped ham, Mancini’s bread, Primanti Brothers sandwiches and people who dance happily to the polka. Best of all, there are friends who remember you when you were young and thin but like you anyway. And…let’s not forget those Steelers!
