Customer Question

Hi there, I am a very young, thinking, feeling, looking 50 year old woman going through a divorce (happily). I am from the LA area and really want to leave here to start my life over. I am a Medical Assistant (speciallty-Dermatology). I have lived in Berlin, Germany, Washington DC, Conneticut, Santa Barbara, CA, Orange County, CA, in Iowa. I have recently been traveling about looking for my "home". But can't seem to find it or feel it. I have been to Seattle, Portland, Monterey, Santa Cruz. What I would REALLY like is to stay in California since it is my birth home and its familiar, someplace that I can afford to buy a condo (K$100-$200), in or near a big city with nature around it as well as close to mountains, lakes, etc. I would like it to be trendy/hip with relatively low crime.I have recently been thinking of the Sacramento area. My best friend lives in Nevada City. I love it there but not alot of jobs. What are your thoughts?? Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX PS I dont mind the summver heat but do not care for the all year round heat of So. CA.

Lancaster General Hospital, Lancaster, PA is one of the "Top 100" hospitals in the country. It is also a teaching hospital.

The LGH "empire" of hospital and affiliated branches and coordinating services, is a unique company. I have been saying, during the years we have been using these facilities, that it is now "enjoyable" to go to see the Doctor.

We live in Rising Sun, MD current population about 2000 people. We even have two traffic lights, four banks, two Doctors and one McDonald's, and have lived here since 1972.

I realize you wish to stay in CA, but I would encourage you to investigate the Lancaster County, PA/Cecil County, MD area. We are mid-point between NY and DC, along the I-95 corridor. The area between Rising Sun, MD and Lancaster, PA, 35 miles apart, is rich in atmosphere, relaxing way of life, all the resources you need and plenty of opportunity to explore the Dermatology opportunities. We have not only Lancaster General Hospital, Lancaster, PA, but Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA,

and also Christiana, DE Hospital about 30 miles east of Rising Sun.

We are "in the country" with city resources just a short distance away. We have warm summers, 80 to 90 degrees, usually tops, snow in the winter 10 to 30 degrees usually. This would be a great place to "start over!"

Reply to T. R. Miller's Post: Dear T.R. Miller, I do appreciate your answer. Perhaps I should have been more clear about my question. I have already lived on the east coast specifically Rockville, MD and really do not wish to return to the east or go that far. I specifically would like to stay in California. Again thank you for your time but I would be happy to pay you for your response.
Expert:  T. R. Miller replied 11 years ago.

Paying me is fine with me. I understand your desire to stay closer "home."

In the Just Answer system, it is possible to "pay" for more than one answer.

I wish you well in your search for a "start-over" home. We have several in our circle of friends who have survived divorce. I have some understanding of the "scars" left from the experience.

Greetings Mary Anne:

Have you considered Monterey - or Carmel? Beautiful - San Diego, or Morro Bay, near San Simeon (Hearst Castle)?

Morro Bay, California - Official Home of Morro Rock

My best to you.

Bright Blessings.
