Seems like you have a fine place here. I am Czech born, but I've lived in England, Scotland, Sweden and the United States for almost 40 years now. I am a web site developer/designer and I moonlight as an architect on the side. I live in South Orange County (the OC), California, in the City of Mission Viejo. Translated from Spanish, in Czech it means "Stara Mise" which is odd since there is no mission here at all and the city is only 20 years old. But it is nice here - it is the safest city in the US. I invite you to visit my web site http://www.bouncingczech.com where I infrequently post musings about various cultural and social oddities and oddball happenings that either I or my friends experienced. I prefer to write in English - my Czech is more or less frozen in 1968 and my vernacular is that of an 18-year old student. I am married, for many moons now, to an American girl from Kentucky. Remarkably, we get on splendidly together even though I won her in a poker game in Binion's Horseshoe in Las Vegas during the crazy nineties. Skiing is my favorite sport. I shred Mammoth Mountain and the mountains around Lake Tahoe every winter to confetti. In the summer, I like nothing better than riding my Seadoo at 100 km per hour down the Colorado River. Yes, I cook for fun, even clean up after myself, but I don't sew my own dresses. I go to churches only if the architecture merits a visit. I do not hold private conversations with God and I really have no time for those who claim to. I would like to run for political office at some point, but I am prevented from that by less then virtuous past and certain harmless vices that may bubble to the surface during the campaign. Despite that I only spent four hours in jail once and that was voluntary and enough of a deterrent not to commit any crime. Ever.
