Like Blackbeard's Ale.

Dislike the fact that people here think Coors Lite is beer.

Love:
Weather, sea, beaches, lizards, sunshine everyday, peacock friends, fresh Heinekens, local fish, local fruits

Dislike:
Potholes, driving through C'Sted twice a day (hurry up bypass!), cokeheads (I don't mind the crackheads), USPS/FedEx/UPS, Pueblo checkout line, drunk drivers, REALLY slow drivers, bad drivers on cell phones, expensive everything, no good draft beer (Brew Pub included), being so far away from home.

ALLMASHUP said it perfectly, except I don't understand the dust or heat :@). In AZ, we have dust storms that shut down the interstate highways and cause terrible traffic accidents that sometimes kill people. We have summers that sometimes reach 122*. Yes it's a dry heat:@) and that really makes a difference. The most miserable I think I ever was, was in Louisville, KY in Aug. It was about 100* and 100% humidity.
I love ;
the beaches,
the ocean breezes, Even in Aug /Sept we don't use our A/C, just let the breeze blow in and or turn on a fan.
sleeping with the sound of the waves on the rocks below,
Off the Wall,
the friendly drivers,
sitting at a bar or restaurant and actually meeting or talking to the people around you.

I dislike:
the long three flights back and forth,
UPS thinks it's a foreign country and charges like it was,
the high WAPA bills,
having to be more careful at night,
finding a parking spot in Csted
