Hi, I am from Okawville,IL, which is southern IL close to St. Louis, MO. It would be nice to find out where other people live.

Northern VA (suburb of Washington DC). Great place. Just got back from 3 weeks in the UK on a Home Exchange. Really fun and cost effective. They lived in our house and drove our car while we did the same in theirs.

We use to go to the resort around there called Eagle Creek. It use to be a nice place 7-8 years ago but I don't know if it is still open. We would go there for Thanksgiving and they has a Christmas light display you could drive through and a huge Christmas tree in the lobby. It was nice but the last time we was there they didn't have any of that stuff anymore.

Eagle Creek Resort was great, but unfortunately is no longer open. We used to take the kids to see the Christmas lights display every year. I keep hearing that it is going to reopen someday under different management but it hasn't happened yet. Eagle Creek and Wolf Creek are both great state parks on Lake Shelbyville.

I thought you were talking about IL but there are alot of states with the town of Belleville. Have you lived there a long time? We have been here 27 years. My husband was a coal miner until the mine in Albers closed.

Blowing Rock is beautiful, but I am pretty much on the coast of NC, in a town called Hampstead. I am near the intercoastal, and I definitely enjoy it here !

Jayabee, you mentioned that you are on "disability"
The disabilty regulations vary from state to state, even tho it's a federal program.
How does all this moving affect your disabilty benefits ?
