It's way to easy to feel out of place here. For being in the midwest there are a surprising amount of blond-barbies, aerobics bunnies, mid-life crisis cars, and nuveax riche (I know that wasn't spelled right) cliques. If you are not in the upper echelon of money, you can look forward to your kids getting shafted out of just about everything. If you want your kids to have any kind of fun, better be prepared to shell out very good money for it. If you are different in anyway, don't like the color beige or are against the pottery barn or the gap just on principal, or if you are not a died in the wool republican ( and I'm talking faaar right) then keep looking. There are virtually no outdoor activities here. There are a handful of bars, none to note that are actually good for dancing. Every one of them is a meat market. Why do I dwell on bars? Because aside from the movies and eating, there is little else to do in this town. That is unless you truly enjoy a good bible thumpin time. and I mean that literally. There is religion in this town that permeates everything in a very zealot manner. And unless tied up in the good old fashioned church banquets etc. It is safe, it is relatively cheap, it is also deadly dull and everyone here is married by the age of 22, divorced by 27 and usually remarried by 30. It's just stepford beige creapy.
