Pennsylvania has many fine rocks and rock shelters. Would you also consider a nice cave?

Ringing Rocks Park in Eastern PA would be a great place.  When you hit the rocks, they ring like a bell, so you don't even need a doorbell!  Talk about amenities.  :p

Sorry--gotta be in or very near P'Burgh.  Besides, see those 4 (?) people there?  That's 5 too many!  What's the point of living under a rock or in a cave if there's all these moronic tourists hangin' around??

People in Pittsburgh like working with their hands. I'm just pointing that out.  8)
Plus, you get to root for an actual winning football team.  :p
And while certainly not the best (this year) hockey team, a pretty damn good one, too!   :angel:

All in all, P'Burgh is a great place!!

I recommend Arizona, pretty much the entire state lives under a rock.

I then recommend living at Hairy John. It is named after a hermit, so you know your good.

You can have it.  Way too hot.  And way too Arizona.

Sheesh, what a grouch!  I'm trying to escape this socialist cesspool AKA Maryland.  I have nothing against your Pennsyltukian state parks.  The ones I've seen are beautiful.  It's just that, well, for a multitude of reasons none of which are anybody's business unless you want to pm me and and ask nicely in which case I'll bore you to death with the details, the particular rock/cave of our requirements has got to be in or near............Pittsburgh!  And, preferably not hairy.  ;D

It's Shark Week on Discovery Channel in the U.S. Here's a neat thing where you can do a 360-degree camera turn with some underwater views, off the coast of Florida.

It's also the day they bombed Hiroshima. But iirc they brought a symbolic amount of grapes and pears or whatever today, although the grapes were most likely from Turkey, as the local grapes only ripen towards the end of August .butit was really a rushed affair, almost unnoticed.

I found a nice rock for you to try. If you like it we can set you up with a payment plan. If not you could always stay there as a base of operations while you search for something more suitable.

I'd only consider moving westwards.
Why is that?
I think the American west -Rockies and Pacific coast- are beautiful.  Have two friends that moved to California this year and another one is following . Also Midwestern winters are way too long for my taste.

Now, that's looking pretty solid.  How many bedrooms?  Is it near P'Burgh?  Gotta be in or near P'Burgh.

I hate to break it to you, TheMath., but the disappearance of hobbits from this realm of reality has left a dire shortage of their holes.  For some reason or other, when they go, their holes close up and disappear.  I do, however, wish you the very best of luck.

Not sure where, I just googled for some in PA generally. I will try to find out from the realtor.

Also, google "hobbit hole" or "hobbit house," they are making a comeback  :police:

I appreciate your efforts.  You WILL be rewarded, especially if you find us something suitable in or near P'Burgh.

Hobbit holes (an unfortunate term, really) or houses are quite quaint and cuddly and roundish but the ceilings tend to be low.  I would consider them, perhaps, but I don't think they offer the security and privacy of a really good, spacious rock.  They tend, too, to be somewhat on the pricey side, I've heard.

We have a school in the PA state system of universities nicknamed "the rock," I will have to ask them if they have any resources dedicated to helping people such as yourself.

Which is the bigger sin, overeating or wasting food? Or what if the food is wasted because it tastes completely awful?

Didn't feel like this first-world moral dilemma warranted its own thread...

I never really distinguished different levels of sin in my mind.  I always felt they were equally bad and if they weren't, the little ones lead to the big ones.

I'm not sure... they seem equally bad... though I refuse to eat terrible tasting food.

Television has turned into a disgusting source of stupidity and idiocy.  What was once a source of learning and clean entertainment is vile and repulsive.

Rosetta Stone is the only way to learn a foreign language. Someone who didn't do well with high school Spanish, but learnt amazing stuff using Rosetta Stone, like how to ask where the bathroom is, told me so  :angel:

Very well, hard to argue against that  :)
I probably watch more TV today than I ever have. Not sure whether it's stupider. My childhood was filled with Happy Days and Gilligan's Island, so...

I like Downton Abbey, well, except for the last episode of season 3. That was just dumb.  :mad:

Yeah...very contrived. 

Much of British t.v., at least that exported to and shown here, is of a MUCH higher quality than most, if not all of U.S. programming.  Football, hockey, and baseball excepted, that is. ;D

I love the TV. How would we watch DVDs or all the stuff we grab off YouTube without one? ;D

On a computer?
Not the best of arrangements for family viewing. Why do computer monitors cost more than a TV the same size? It's the TV that has the extra hardware built in! ???
