      I grew up there. My parents moved to Pittsburgh in about 1955 or so and I left when I went into the service in 1972. I went back for a year in 84 for a one year job with PPG. I was thrown in as part of a deal to sell them a bunch of computers. They got their very own on site instructor/programme from the vendor. I wanted to see what living there was like if I had money.....I left at the end of the deal. There just wasn't enough to do. I live in Denver now and it is the perfect balance between lots of stuff to do and the cost of living.

      I'm making plans for my son and I to go back there at Christmas. My dad is 85 and my son is leaning on me to spend more time with him. I guess I must have done something right with that kid....

      Hi Days,

      Went to the Steelers bar near my home yesterday. I had seats at my table and offered a couple a place to sit because the bar was packed. They commented on just how friendly all of the Pittsburgers are. I last lived there in 1984/1985 and worked at the PPG building, the tower. My dad and a brother and sister still live there, in the South Hills area.

      I'll look into an appropriate avatar....

      I cannot make the darn thing work, Days. Also, I hope you are not mistaking me for the MaryAnn on BOTF. We seldom agreed!:p:o

      I haven't seen any activity from BA for a day or so....let's hope that just means that she's busy.
