.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I'm probably one of the closest people and she's still the other long end of the state.
Mark (IndyPartridge) might be closer (just the width of the state).

That doesn't even consider its 2 degrees above zero here - I wouldn't suggest moving bees now.

It may be a bit warmer down there, but sorry its not practical here.

I do appreciate you offering them to the forum rather than forgetting the subject!
