Charleston, SC, land of tasty crustaceans, peaceful tidal creeks, white sand beaches, beautiful and historic city center, annual world-class arts festivals (SpoletoUSA and MOJA), and fine Southern hospitality. Y'all c'mon down and set a spell.

Many people become snowbirds for winter....Arizona mostly. Summers are typically sunny and dry with temps 65-85 and the Rockies are less than an hour away for lots of outdoor fun.
Same as AltaRed. Good description of Calgary btw.

Re: Where You Live

I'm from Southern California. But I don't live there anymore, I left in the 1970's. Then I moved to San Jose, CA. But I don't live there anymore, I left in the1980's. I moved to the California Gold country, near Jackson, CA. But I don't live there anymore, because I moved to the Sacramento region in the 1990's. It's been good to me so far. My first home in the foothills of the Sacramento valley doubled in price in 5 years, so I sold that and bought a distressed property nearby for about $.50 on the dollar in 2000, spent the last six years upgrading, remodeling and landscaping it, and it has more than doubled in value (after "losing" value in the recent housing slump). Even if prices locally drop 25%, I double my investment here, so I'll sell when the market will bear it. I don't think I'll make much more in CA real estate though, unless I wait and buy some from folks that went too deep on STUPID mortgages and HELOCs over the last five years.

I am sick and tired of Calif and the crazy pace of life here, and will retire to a paid off home out of state sometime in the next few years.

Crazy pace of life in CA I travelled to CA on business a number of times and found it to be pretty laid back compared to the frantic northeast pace.

Re: Where You Live

Jeff Skilling just moved to Minnesota. Plans on spending his retirement (24 years) here - even in the winter.

In Waseca (Motto is "An Hour or a Lifetime") - more southern than all of the ER Minnesota contingent that I know of - between Sleepy Eye - Blue Earth (I understand there is blue earth there) - Le Sueur - and Owatonna.. basically Jolly Green Giant country... well he may soon join our forum...

Are there any members that are currently in prison?

I think he'll be LBHM's and will have a great retirement.

As far as the winter goes he'll be indoors most of the time.

This is the price he must pay for living the lavish life style on somebody else's dime......Too bad they couldn't recover any monies from Lay's estate.

Actually, you have something else to celebrate. Owensboro Medical Health System is becoming known as a national leader in continuous improvement in health care delivery. They have done an great job of implementing the 6 strategies outlined in the Insitute for Healthcare Improvement's 100,000 lives campaign (see www.ihi.org) and just last week presented on their results at the IHI Annual Forum in Orlando. (I attended the presentation). Basically, hospital mortality is way down because they are getting very good at proactively preventing complications.

ditto, but I don't plan to RE here. Winter is too challenging.

They are good, but they have a very up hill battle in terms of general pop health. I recently moved to KY from PA; and grew up in this very area. The number of smokers is truely unbelievable. I work in TN sometimes and same thing, lots of smokers. In my own family 5 out of 9 siblings smoke, over 50%.

Could be a poll; good health habits / bad health habits for ER's and ER wannabees.

There's a big difference between population health, and health care. Health care is only one of many dererminants of population health, and it's not the most important one. It's there to pick up the pieces!

US leaders are "discovering" population health and in fact a major discussion centred around it at the IHI meeting.
