Actually, I grew up in a rural New England town with a population of around two thousand. This town had one traffic light which only flashed, where the two main roads crossed. There was a market, a gas station, a couple of churches, and a bank. We had no neighbors. We were so remote that the road we lived on was named after us - because we were the only ones on it. Beautiful New England countryside. Chopping wood, raking leaves, the smell of spring, the beautiful bright blue skies, the breathtaking black star-filled nights... I understand your claim Far Away, but that was 30 years ago. I do miss it and visit occasionally, but it would be hard for me to adjust moving back to that.
A very pleasant picture in my mind, indeed.

Consider this state is part of the USA, so why aren't we allowed to drill for oil in the lower 48 and reap the rewards also? We would then not have to rely on foreign oil.
"Colorado Chick"- That's a great idea Chick, that's a 1010.
