My adult kids thought we must have a screw loose to leave Calif. They changed their minds when they came to visit.
I work at the hospital and am not too happy there. TVRH is just about the only thing I'm not thrilled about here in Florida.
I was born in Indiana and spent every summer in Bloomington where my Mom was raised and went to IU. Hello to the lady from Bloomington. I spent many summers roaming through the hills and playing in the creeks. I worked in the cafeteria of the dental school during my 17th summer. My best girlfriend and I thought we would find a dreamy dentist like Mark Spitz.... we washed lots of dishes instead.
May I ask what you don't like about working at TVRH? We will be moving to TV in March 2011 and I was considering working at TVRH part-time.

My husband is from Cleveland OH raised in GA and I was born in Orange CA and spent most of my adult life in San Francisco CA. We now live in Arlington VA.

Hubby asleep on the sofa so I can't tell you all the places he has lived. He spent 30 years in the army so he has been around. We have only been married 4 years that's why I don't know.
As for me-- born in Lynchburg, VA, spent childhood in Sanford, FL., returned to Lynchburg, then to Midlothian, VA, to Macon, GA, back to Lynchburg, now in Moneta, VA and in June 2011 THE VILLAGES

I'm sure there is so type of record about what states populate The Villages the most. My guess is New York, Ohio, and other states in the Great Lake Area. How many Floridians live in TV?

San Francisco Bay Area -- Pleasant Hill (East Bay/Diablo Valley) to be exact. Born in Germany. English was my fifth language (learn 'em, move, forget 'em, learn the next). Can pick them back up if I'm in a country for more than 3 weeks, but otherwise, it's English (well, American) and German today.

Have traveled most of my life, so my stock response to most people is my mother with a little bit of help from my father. Military/embassy brats understand the response immediately. Others think I'm being a wise guy.

Easy when you're a kid. Sadly, we moved so much they really didn't stick (unless you get me really, really angry -- then I start cursing in every language I ever knew).

our salesman told us floridians make up the most sales in the villages followed closely by new york... i am a native floridian (miami, ft lauderdale) and my husband was born in brookyln so i guess we fit the profile exactly...
