I love raising my kids in NJ, but I'd like to travel with them more during the summers.

welcome to the dark side...:-) glad to hear that you're enjouying the new gear.
Thanks! I am enjoying it. It's a learning curve...on both of them. Took me all day to figure out how to sync the phone with the laptop/icloud/itunes/etc., but it's all good. I've been being all pretentious at people too with my laptop open reading at the coffee shop. I never do that. I just felt kind of drawn to doing it today. heh :D

No where and everywhere. I'd check out a lot of different states and countries. I'd stay long enough (maybe a year?) to really get into the culture.

Earthquakes and volcanos here too. If Mt. Rainier blows, I'm pretty much toast unless I can get out by boat which I don't have even though I'm technically "on the water" about a minute from Puget Sound, so in the big scheme of it all <shrug>.:D

Yeah, this. I haven't lived enough places to say definitively where I'd like to live forever. Every place has pros and cons. I like warm weather, but I hate giant bugs. I hate winter, but I also hate super hot summers.

I would buy one of the mansions in Evanston that I can only drool at now as we drive by and then find a private island in the Caribbean or maybe a place on the beach in Costa Rica or Belize.

One of my bunco girls just moved in to a McMansion. You know, brand new, 4K square feet, 3 car garage, 5 bedrooms, etc. And all I could think as she was showing us around was "I would hate to have to clean this place". Stupid adult brain never lets me have any fun imagining anymore.

Oh, believe me, I think that too when I'm drooling.

But money is no object, so I can hire a weekly cleaning service.

I have been to Costa Del Sol a couple times, Malaga and Marbella area, but not down to Majorca. I could do that. Enough Brit ex-pats that I could speak English if needed.

If money were truly no object, i might spend some time in Japan...i love the food and culture, but normally it's about the most expensive to visit....along with NYC.....
