    For the most part, the area is fine for agricultural activity but as far as the quality of people, it is not conducive to long lasting friendships.

    Home invasions in my area are increasing. Police are slow to respond and my neighbors have considerable assets.

    It is a small, rural town so the lawns are large, most houses have pastures and are not close in distance to their neighbors. There is a lot of farmland and heavily wooded areas. It is a nice, quiet place to live and for the most part is very safe as well.
