    My wife is fron so cali, let me tell you she almost had to be reducated on how most of the US is. Our state troopers/state police are not called CHIPS, all interstates do not begain with "the" ex. The 5 ,the 99,the 101ect......,it rains during the summer, we cannot swim in outdoor pools in november, landscapers are not called gardners,everyone does not have or need underground lawn sprinklers, we get rain, theres not a burraito stand on every corner, we have natural trees not planted plam trees, we get snow, lol I could go on and on, oh yeah everyone does not want to move to cali as I guess most cali people think. I have been to LA area Bay area a lot......... Thank God I dont live there and am not from there.
