        That Maine one makes me hungry.
        Somehow, I just saw this.

        Honestly, I mostly don't like Utah. I only agreed to live here when faced with the choice of that, or divorce. Now, I am going on 17 years here, and it's grown on me a little - but only a little. I love how my kids have 60 cousins to grow up with here (all pretty good kids). I love that it's a pretty good place to raise a family, if you steer clear of certain pitfalls. I find myself constantly driving home the concept of acceptance with my kids - especially as it involves skin color and sexual orientation. They need to understand that the world isn't just comprised of white, heterosexual Mormons with large families. And the specific neighborhood we live in is about as diverse as it gets here - probably only about 30% Mormon, in our LDS ward boundaries (a ward is the loose equivalent of a small Catholic parish).

        But I consider myself a Coloradan, through and through.
