    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hi there,

    I'm currently living in Vegas. I moved here from Mpls in March '07.

    Before Mpls I was living in the Bay Area, '68-'9?. I consider the Bay my home because I did most of my schooling there(1st grade - sr standing in college.)

    My family moved to Mpls from Ca in the early '90s after that earthquake that messed up the '89 World Series, OAKLAND A'S vs the SAN FRAN GIANTS.

    I don't plan on moving out of Vegas soon unless, like Candy, I hit the sweepstakes. Then I'm disappearing for a while since my mother likes to shop. Exspensive lady. UGH!!

    Vegas is okay but I miss the 'Bezerkly' atmosphere and the the 'kooks' that made it fun.

    The Vegas heat is not good for my seizures and meds but I have learned how to live in it. My brain froze while in Mpls and now it is sun-burned in Vegas. Always something.

    I grew up an Army Brat and LOVED it. I was born in Heidelberg Germany, then lived in Fredericksburg, Virginia, then back to Stuttgart, Germany (it's so nice not to have to put East or West Germany any more like when we lived there) the the yuckiest station (sorry to those I offend I just love my mountains) Ft. Reily, Kansas Home of the Big Red ! Loved the people and the pride, not the tornadoes somuch, then Dad finally retired here in Pennsylvania, a little town called Lehighton, I hated it at first, but I would never leave it for the world now.

    So interesting to hear where everyone lives! Sounds like we all experience vastly different weather throughout the year.

    I'm DREADING the heat - over 100 many days in the summer. Why did I move to a house with a hot tub?!?
