I realize the weather is great but it's the people (many are relatives) and rules there that I'd never put up with.

There's definitely a lot of entitled snobs. I may even be one w/o knowing it as I'm born, raised and raising two boys here.

As far as the rules I'm not sure why that bothers you. I wake up and go to work just like I would anywhere else in America.

Our tax rates are outrageous from what I hear which bugs me. That's when I think about all the equity in my house and go back to work.

Let's just say I'm big on 1st and 2nd amendment rights.

That whole mexican flag is cool but American flag is verboten just doesn't fly with me.

I'm not sure when the flag was forbidden in California. My guess is Berkley or Davis. If that's the case than it's unfortunate that I'm lumped into an extremely left group.

People who are against the second are brainwashed into giving up their freedom. I also don't like being lumped in with them.

It's basically an ungovernable state which is why talk about splitting is brought up every few years.

All in all it's a good place to live though.

Don't take what I say about your state so personal.

I have cousins there that are batty as can be.

I blame the nut job politicians there on those that elected them and take it was by the majority.

Ending up using fishing line and a piece of a Home Depot bag, then pulled in pull string.

Husky shop vac is what I use.



Did you use set screw or compression fittings?
