O.K., well.... I've got the ocean here....oops, so do you...
Well, I can pahk my cahr in Hahvid Yahrd, if I wanted to. (Actually used 
to, many yrs ago, when I'd visit the museum, til the parking became 
resident-only).
And fried clams. We have fried clams (only I don't grow them in my back 
yard...)

We've been getting the Storms From Hell lately. Rain, rain, rain - and 
more rain. Last night, I thought my little long-haired chihuahua was 
going to have a nervous breakdown. Thought thunder & lightning like that 
only existed back in Arizona.

This thread makes me miss California.  Alas, I think its too expensive for
me to go back these days.  Its funny though, I may end up in San Jose or
Cambridge as a grad student if I get lucky... (Pasadena and Pittsburgh are
backups :) )

All kidding aside, I wouldn't trade this area for /anyplace/. Cambridge 
is great. Boston is terrific. There is so much that is so easy to get to 
- and we have the (never-on-time, but heck, it's/ there/) T. Theaters, 
parks, restaurants galore - what I love most about this area are the 
little shops, little restaurants, run by the men and women who own them. 
That didn't exist in AZ. Yeah, there are chains here - but they aren't 
exclusive (Krispy Kreme just didn't 'get' us - and they are now closed 
around here. Fini.) Then there are the museums, too many colleges to 
choose from (I need to decide soon - I'll be leaving my little community 
college).
But - I don't have a garden this year, and even if I did, I wouldn't be 
able to grow those oranges, lemons, - but yes, I could (if I wasn't in 
an apartment) grow apples & pears & lots of berries. Our growing window 
is shorter - but then we have wonderful cold February nights to dream 
through the gardening catalogues - wait - what am I saying. With global 
warming, our Feb.'s have been pretty warm, and we might end up being 
able to grow those lemons after all...
