You think Chester County is a good place to live now, you should have seen it before the yuppies moved in and bought up all the farm land to live in the cookie cutter style mcmansions, Stepford wifes ala Chester County....

Toll Brothers and Rouse Chamberlan cleaned up in Chester County,, I cant believe what people were paying 500k for 10 years ago (was it W.C. Fields that said there is a sucker born every minute).. I watched a "development" go up just outside of West Chester in the late 90's.. talk about match stick construction built on top of each other,, oh well, at least I have the memories of what it was like when it was farmland,,

I grew up in Chester County in the 70's and live in Cecil County now. I say the grass is always greener...to those that complain about sprawl, how would you like to drive 10 miles for gas or milk; 10-15 miles for grocery shopping? and 30+ miles to shop somewhere other than Wal-Mart and the Dollar Store? The only entertainment in Cecil County is the dragway and Wal-Mart. Along with "country" comes some rednecks too. I love the country, but I also love a little bit of development...don't forget people have to live somewhere, but I am sorry to see all the "ant farms" of $500K houses.

Dear knowitall
Some of us are fortunate enough to have homes on the mainline, chespeake bay, florida and overseas. BTW, there are plenty of good ole boys in MD that would luv to show a pansy like you about macho while u drive your prius to starbucks after getting the NYTimes at borders to check up on you buddy osama barrack.
I don't swing that way. You have fun with your gay old boys. Easton Maryland is a hole, where the men are macho and the sheep run scared.
