You're right that one should not stereotype all cowboys. I used to be a carpenter and surprised a lot of customers by listening to classical music while I worked. Still the open range would not provide the numbers of type cast patrons I would need to make the business successful. This is a city venture (my house will be in the country though).

You think NH could pull it off, eh? That was my first choice but now I've gone and talk myself into loving Wyoming. If NH wins I'll have to adjust all over again.

I think good and dedicated people can pull it off in either location, probably in most of them. I think the results will come a little sooner in Wyoming, there being more like-minded folks already resident there. I expect we could get larger numbers in New Hampshire, eventually, but that the darkside forces can easily draw from their neighboring allies nearby too. Neither do I think Montana is at all unworkable; it's got a couple of advantages that the two forerunners lack.

But check these sites out, and see if you don't find yourself real satisfied with the idea of it being Wyoming:

I first heard Sibelius' Finlandia played in a German army tank repair workshop. Real fun bunch. I enjoyed the recordings so much, I went to hear the music performed live by the Munich Philharmonic, and found I'd acquired some new tastes.

You might have expected Wagner from the Kraut tankers, maybe even Bach. Probably not Khachaturian or Mussorgsky....

But why not? After all, their marching song was composed by Lieutenant Kurt Weill.

I'm anxiously counting down till tomorrow's announcement. Been talking about this and now have a local friend convinced that he will make the move as long as its NH or Vermont. I have two others strongly considering the move to where ever the Project votes to go as they too are fed up with NJ and have been planning on getting out anyway. One wants to take a road trip with me when I venture out to reconnoiter whatever state is chosen. Been through all of them except Alaska but will be looking differently at things now with the intent of moving behind the visit.

Well, in less than 12 hours, we'll find out. See you in the Free State- and there may be more than one come about....

By all means invite your pals from NJ to join us here into preplanning our future adventures, and your VT/NH inclined friend is welcome too, or we can easily enough point him toward those already resident there.
