Pros Cons of City vs Small Town Living

Pros Cons of City vs Small Town Living - When choosing a location for home, the area is key to longstanding happiness. If you are a more laid back type of person with a great love for the "simple life", then a suburban neighborhood would be best for your lifestyle. An area where everyone knows your name and a driving license is never required to identity validation. However, for those who enjoy exciting night life and other entertainment options, then the city life might be more beneficial. Let's evaluate all of the pros and cons of each environment.

Pros Cons of City vs Small Town Living

You may be surprised to hear that a suburb was defined for many years as a neighborhood on the outskirts of a large city. It functioned the same as a city, without the higher property costs. Slowly, the suburbs seemed to join with the city. As this continued, the traditional concept of a small town suburb slowly dwindled. The newer suburbs are small communities within a large city. Either way, there are many benefits to living in a suburb.

Suburbs are best known for their large amount of space and a safer atmosphere to raise small children. During the 40s and 50s, many neighbors never bothered to lock their doors in the suburbs because it was so safe. When living in such a small community, you will rarely see traffic on the roads, unless someone is taking a joy ride. Farmers benefit greatly from suburban areas due to the large supply of land for farming. If you enjoy having a say in the laws of the community and any other regulations, then you will have a greater chance of your voice being heard in a suburban neighborhood.

Suburbs are not small towns, merely extensions of a city. The city's "bedroom" so to speak.

We love our small town living. We live in Vader, WA., it's a tiny town half way between Olympia & Vancouver. We have no crime(rape, murder, muggings). Our neighbors are wonderful, lots of community activities (parades, bbq's, etc..). We're only minutes from shopping, restaurants, entertainment and less than 2hrs to the Ocean or to the Ski lodge. Lots of outdoor activities at our fingertips. We get the best of all worlds, a safe, peaceful home with major shopping at our fingertips. I'll pick small town everytime.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

Cassel’s availability will come down to whether he…
