I've never been to York.  So I can't say whether it's as nice as a warm meat pie or as vile as lying in your own sick all night.

Most of the California Central Coast is better than Spokane.

You have the nice weather of Cali, and nice beaches, minus the big cities of San Diego, L.A. Area and the Bay Area.

If I could live anywhere, it would probably be in Pismo Beach, or San Louis Obispo.  8)

Fucking Newark NJ is better than spokane.

Agreed, if you happen to like that Blade Runner level of industrial strength dystopian fucked-uppedness and urban blight. 

I think that the original Portland, that being my home town of Portland, Maine is probably better than Spokane, or at least it's better than the two days that I spent stranded at the Husky Truckstop in Spokane before I caught a ride out of there on a trip that I took in 1985.

The name of the city of Portland, Oregon was allegedly decided at the flip of a coin. Most of the early settlers there were from New England, what with the logging as well as the ocean being relatively nearby. The two names that they had settled upon were Portland, (After Portland, Maine) and Boston ( After Boston Mass.). Those two towns were originally named by English settlers in the 17th and 18th Centuries after the English Ports of Boston, ( St. Botolph's Town) and Portland.

I prefer to sleep in a small town, within a reasonably short drive to a big city. When I want culture I can find it. When I want to watch birds and squirrels, I go to my back yard.
Confucius: A man who has mosquito land upon testicles finds a way to solve problems without violence. (Surely, a modern bastardization of TeH Master)

Ghandi: Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

The end result of life's daily pain and suffering, trials and failures, tears and laughter, readings and listenings is an accumulation of wisdom in its purest form. (from My heart to You! Never stop learning!)

We live within an hours drive of the Portland Maine area.  And there is always something going on to interests us.  Like taking Amber to the Lippizaner Stallions.  Plus a local Folk Singer, Carol Noonan just opened up a small dinner/music stage in a converted barn in a nearby town.  Amber and Carla have gone to see shows there.  we live in a pretty culturally active area.

But, when it's time to sleep or do things outside, I like the quiet, broken only by the wind, thunder and lightning, rain, etc. 8)
