How long have you lived in Bisbee? After 19 years I've had enough! Can't wait to get out and back to a measure of sanity (and real trees) in the midwest!

Arizona... almost ten years now. I grew up in Southern California, so this weather is perfect for me. Besides, I had ten years of Maryland mold and moss, six years of Hawaii (which I must admit was perfect paradise), and about five years between Kansas and Michigan - you can HAVE the greenery and the trees, I'll take the mesquite and yuccas!
