    Wendy, come to the Twin Cities! Warmer climate than Canada; we have the Mall of America (as if Kristy didn't mention it!) but we also were the birthplace of indoor shopping malls: Southdale was the first indoor shopping mall ever! We have great hospitals and a strong nurse union in our nursing association (there are also hospitals here without unions for those of you who are biased against them).

    In June, 2004, the ANA will have their national convention here-- you could come and check us out if you want to. We are also close enough to Canada that you can go visit family easily!

    And of course, a lot of your friends are here-- like me! Come visit us; I think you will like it here!

    And yes, NRSKarenRN, Moonshadeau and I did try the Philly steak sandwiches; they are very good! I did like the City of Brotherly Love, BTW. But it was so DANG HOT there the beginning of July!!!!

    Jenny, you need that heat to ward off the Minnesota frostbite!

    Tell Wendy how much you fell in love with our Reading Terminal Market Philadelphia's Own Downtown Farmers' Market.

    Along with our New Years Mummers Parade, the Mummers also do a Summer Strut. http://www.gophila.com/holidays/mummers.htm

    New York is one hour by Metroliner---Jersey Shore and Atlantic City Casino's 1 hr away; Pocano Mountains 1-2 hr ride. We have it all. We really are the City of Brotherly Love. I'm willing to act as your personal tour guide too.

    I'm originally from Buffalo, but I won't try to convince you....you are from Toronto area anyway I think? I repeat my top three.....Boston, Seattle, Orlando. Strongly suggest travel nursing. OGrady/Peyton does alot of Canadian travelers.

    Yes, I DID fall in love with the Reading Street Market. I hope to visit it again when I come out that way to see Aunt Hazel someday soon!

    Moonshadeau, Bassbird, and I watched the July 1st Summer Strut. As a matter of fact, they both were dancing in the street with some of the different entertainers! And I have the pictures to prove it!!

    BOSTON. It's da bomb. Good weather-but it does get cold in the winter. But of course you're used to that. hehe

    I've been to Philly quite a few times--to me it always seems dirty and dull. (sorry!!)

    Don't worry, I won't try to get you to move to Baltimore. The crime here is unbelievable.
