Is "PLace" that important? I know I could entertain, amuse, scare , and have people laughing in just one small room, I "know" because I do it on a regular basis year-round and have been doing it for many years. I do have a house with basement, escape tunnels, secret passages, hidden doors, my own original art and art work and almost none of it was bought from anyone else. I make most of everything here. How far away are you from the northwestern corner of Illinois? we are 3 hrs due west from Chicago, just 10 miles from the Miss. River.
