KYTeacher:

I didn't know the address of the pool. Got on Yahoo Maps and entered "The Villages, FL"
then scrolled over to the pool (I know where it is) and zoomed in. Then highlighted the internet address and copied it, then pasted it to the message.

I have entered specific TV addresses in Yahoo Maps and it works.

Have you tried Zillow.com and searched TV? There are many listings on Zillow.

Gracie girl said "I have to go home again on Wednesday."

Gracie..you are home!! I say the same thing about Pa when we go back and forth. This is really my home now, though. I love it!

villages has 60k population and will grow to 100k


That is a con unless you are wanting to get lost in the shuffle of things. I hear the size of TheVillages doesn't interfere with the number of people "hooking up".

Sid, not sure ... what is a con about a growing population? :dontknow:

I guess the number of hook-ups grows as the population increases.
You're welcome.

My mother lived in Ocala Palms. She and six other families moved to Hot Springs Village in Arkansas ( the one that the guy from "Chips" hawks on tv infomercials ) The couple that they bought their home from in Arkansas was selling to move to the Villages. This was just months after we had bought here in TV.

Well they hated the total lack of things to do or places to eat or shop. It is just the opposite of TV. They decided to move back to central fla. I tried my hardest to get them into TV but they decided on Stonecrest due to the fact that they could get a large half acre lot and the home was about 25k cheaper than a comparable in TV. That was this past october. After 3 months they put their home on the market. They hated their neighbors and all the yard work they had (watering, cutting, and gophers). Oddly enough the people that they bought from in Stonecrest were ALSO moving to TV. House has now been on the market for 7 months with 0 offers.

I am sure that many people love the other communities. I am sure I probably would have been one of them if I hadnt seen TV first.

I don't think it matters that there are thousands of people in TV (not in a negative way, I mean). There's so much to do and, if you don't want to do anything, you don't have to do anything. I agree with the person who said it's like being on a cruise ship vacation 24/7 - 365 days of the year.

Can't wait until we can get there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
