  7. That's the sight that greets me most mornings when I look out of the lounge window . This time of the year I also get to watch "lamb chop " practicing his karate moves . I moved 10 minutes out of town for some peace and quiet .

Where I live now I am 1 1/4 hours from this scenery on the east coast , 1/2 an hour from the West coast , and 3 hours from the snow .....
