MB: Finally, most people who live here are not as small-minded as you imply, nor do most of us live in trailer parks. (But I have considered buying a mobile home, and it's still a thought...)

: Qx: Hey watch out! I live in a trailer park and there's about 200,000 of big country surrounding it. Should drag some of them up?

I know this a bit of an aside, but I'm really intersted in this trailer park thing. From my end of the telescope here in N.I., folk who live in trailer parks are portrayed as deadbeat, dropout, no hope, white trash smell bags who can't string words of more than two syllables together, and solve their frequent disputes with a swig of jack daniels and a blast from a shotgun. Now, I KNOW this is a total stereotype, but if Qx, you live in a trailer park, and Mike, you are considering it, doesn't this kind of fly in the face of what is portrayed as the norm over there ?

Just what is the attraction of living in some kind of static shoe box ? Is it not a really cluttered, claustrophobic lifestyle ? Qx, is this a glimpse of the way you fill your days ? Crack open another Bud there and fill me in !
