Where in Florida. The country of Florida is extremely diverse. Some parts of it, you'll be killed for a bic pen. Other parts, if your gold watch isn't worth $1,000,000, then you're just a peon. You'll have to drive on the other side of the road, you know.

Yeah it was at the university of Florida, was designed to eat Mosquitos with one small design flaw. Love bugs are only active in the day while Mosquitos only active at night. This is of course the word on the street, so who knows. I highly doubt it.

Anyways why exactly are you moving to Florida and I can help you decide on an area, I've been pretty much everywhere as most others have too

Well to be honest here on the islands its pretty expensive cost of living wise i pay almost 300 a month in electric bill rent for a 2 bedroom apartment is like 700-850 theres nothing to do besides go to the beach lol and schools here dont worth anything i have 3 boys which i would like them to get a better education.. Btw our drag strip sucks big time and our major income which was the 3rd largest refinery in the u.s closed and work is pretty hard to find here so yea that pretty much sums it up just need to try something different...

I don't have kids, but I did I would much rather put them through school in orlando. Both my cousins went to school in Orlando and they said it wasn't bad. Only bad part about Orlando depending on the area is traffic
