I avoid Florida like the plague. The only time I have ever been there is for work and each time I could not wait to leave. Some may say happiness is Florida in my rear-view mirror, but not me. To have Florida in my rear-view mirror would mean I would have had to have been there, and I have been there way too many times already.

 

Reviewing most of your ridiculous posts doesn't add to my respect for the people of Florida either.

Most vacation destinations are like that. They want the money from the tourists but then they want them gone.

 

I've not had any desire to visit Florida, though our oldest son now lives in Pensacola so we may end up visiting there if he stays awhile; but the Panhandle is much different than the rest of Florida.

My daughter has opted to go to PCC for her English degree so as an unfortunate consequence I will have to revisit there on occasion as well. I have every intent of making them well planned excursions where the OBjective is clearly defined and executed, with an exit strategy in place that will minimize any excess of time in the area.

 

Pray for my daughter. She really doesn't want to go to Florida, but PCC offered the best balance between faith based education and cost with regards to an English degree.

Pensacola isn't much different than southern Georgia or Alabama. It's a very poor county and parts of Pensacola itself is poor, crime and drug ridden. The more affluent areas, and areas for tourists and where the main businesses are, such as PCC itself, are kept up and generally safe and decent.

 

Since it's on the tip of the Florida panhandle, at least one doesn't have to delve too far into Florida and leaving is quick.

I will not refute that I am a sinner, and fortunately saved by grace. I would not say I am anywhere close to a follower of you, or any other man. I have considered various posts you have made and have to admit I can't think of one that had any kind of merit that would bring one closer to Christ. To that end I would have to say you seem to desire to provoke sin.

 

I'll no longer give you or your posts my time.

The best part about Florida is the road that leads North. :)

Which ones you don't like, The ones about the gays, the ones about heaven and hell, or tattoos. Mega churches, Weak pastors, or maybe the one woman preachers. They do step on toes. I agree

Women preachers step on toes? Is that why they are not well received among IFBs? Here I always thought it was because of what the Bible says about such matters!

Hated my time in Fla but Pensacola is not a good representation of Fla (nor is Miami, Orlando, Tampa, etc). To visit the Real Fla go to Two Egg, Chipley, Jay, Perry, Walnut Hill, Ebro, Graceville, etc.

 We live near Wausau but my business/office is near Chipley and we have a Chipley address. I sometimes sell my sheep at Graceville and my MIL lives near Jay. A really big "city" for us is Panama City or Dothan, AL. We are from some of the original "Florida Crackers". My great great great grandpa fought for the confederacy and lost two of his three sons in the war. One died in battle at Chickamauga and the other died in a prison camp. When the  war was over, my 3xgreat grandpa became a Baptist preacher. The story is told that my 2x great grandpa Bauldin, the only son he had left, hid in a well to avoid conscription; he was said to be14 at the time. They have  Grandpa Bauldin's log house at a museum in Panama City....

My grandpa (my pa's pa) was a Confederate bugler (he was 89 when my dad was born - his wife was 34). Two of my boys were born in Ft Oglethorpe when we lived in Chickamauga.

Maybe it was the prison camp which was at Chickamauga; I'll have to ask my sister.

There wasn't a camp at Chickamauga, he was prOBably KIA there. I don't think the Union took any POW's at Chickamauga and had enough difficulty keeping Chattanooga secure. There wouldn't have sent any to Memphis, most likely (IF they had any) Indiana or Illinois.

I went to nursing school in Panama City, FL. Lived there for 3 years. Loved it! Just avoided Panama City Beach during spring break! Took a few classes in Chipley first. My boyfriend at the time was stationed at Tyndall AFB. The panhandle is definitely best part of Florida!
