Thanks Sprout and Harry.

There is a pizza joint 8 steps out the front door, they open at 10am, in the spring and fall when you have the windows open you smell pizza 24/7. It is like a wakeup call every Saturday and Sunday morning.

And the best pie I have ever had in my life is at Motorino, which is about a 4 minute walk up the street.

I echo the comments of everyone else. You are the exact type of people we want to attract and keep in Worcester.... I wish you luck.

What everyone else said -- this is our loss...

Paulie's Point of View said...

curious..nothing posted 4Rilla about why you are moving out of Dodge City..is it the lack of a job, trash, depressed real estate market, slowness of Woo's urban redevelopment, relationship change..all of the above?

It is clear via the numerous trash postings that it is getting to you...and there is no question that you took a huge gamble moving where you did and hoping for the path to urban renewal moving along quicker than it has....is it Woo you have to get away from cause you have lost confidence in the change we keep hearing about?

Paulie (and all),
Well I am moving for love first and foremost, but I was able to get an internal transfer with my company from Canton, MA to Manhattan.

I bought the condo at the top in the summer of 2007 and there is no way that I could afford to stay there on my own, nor was there any reason to.

Moving into that area was certainly a gamble and one that did not pay off. But oh well what can you do. It was a learning experience for sure.

The condo will be going up as a short sale soon-ish. I am just so overjoyed to be moving in with a fabulous woman, in one of the most amazing cities in the world and the opportunities that can unfold from here.

Sorry to see you leave, but am happy that you will be happy with the woman you love. I am also sorry that your experience here was not positive. There are many people, myself included, who feel you brought a lot to the table in the form of a different set of eyes and your insightful comments.
While I am sorry to see you go, and I wish you well with your sale, I hope that you have a wonderful life ahead.

There was a very real perception that bi-racial was much worse for the white than it was for the person of color. The liberal culture screamed racism when there is a very reasonable explanation for this reality::::
In this white punishment known as the United States the person of color has already adopted the disfavors/temptations intended for another race. But by associating/mating with a person of color the white is newly adopting the disfavors of another culture.
And this is the reason why people of color are not welcome in the United States. The gods control everything:::The perception they want to create, the thoughts they want you to have.
People of color can't recover from absorbing the temptations from two cultures. And why they become more and more like so many blacks in America:::Veterans at absorbing the temptations of two cultures.
To further illustrate this is why California's educational system/funding was ranked #1 when California was white:::Education being the basis of the affluent economic system. Now even public higher education has become unaffordable.

The gods placed us all into our own corners of the globe. As such for thousands of years we spent time and reproduced with out own kind.
This is why mobilty/travel, biracial unions/offspring and partaking of other cultures is a sin::::
Each has it's own elements of disfavor, and by experiencing other cultures you are being exposed to these disfavors, which if people may adopt will make their state even worse than prior.
The United States has been considered a "melting pot" where rejects from around the world were sent when kicked out of their motherland.
Remember, this concept of cultural diversity is an element of the liberal platform the gods used to promote societal decay, revealed on the map with the "beast" that is the SanFranciscoBayArea and the spread of social deterioration that spread to the rest of the country and eventually to the entire globe.


Ronald Reagan spent the communist block into submission with defense buildup, and in the process increased the National debt from $1 trillion in 1980 to $6 trillion when he left office.
W charged both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to the national debt, honest numbers to come.
The gods used W to initiate the "Great Recession" with deliberate legislation/regulation changes, allowing the sub-prime fiasco and corporate irresponsibility/criminal behavior which led to the multi-trillion dollar stimulous package, pocketted by Republican friends and donors::::$5 trillion charged to the National credit card.
This corruption is one element of evil in the party of good. War mongering is another.
Damned if you do, Damned if you don't::::With the Democrats you subscribe to social decay via liberlism, which WILL lead to the Apocalypse. Republicans are being used by the gods to bankrupt the United States, ultimately motivating people to the point of "desperation prayer" once anarchy presides::::Punishment designed to correct your behavior.
