Default Re: Price vs. Performance

I actually was born in Hartford, CT, but spent most of my life in Rockville, MD area. It is there where I trained my ear for quality audio. I would often go to the HiFi shows in Washington, D.C.. I moved to Omaha, NE in 1975 to attend Creighton University and lived in Omaha until I met and married my wife from Harlan, IA. We tried Harlan for awhile but the commute to Omaha was a killer. We moved to Council Bluffs in 1994 and my wife discovered that I had relatives in Council Bluffs that I didn't even know existed. In a round about way, I have returned to my roots where my ancestors came from. I found a large burial plot in Grand Island, NE. We now live in a new house in the hills of Council Bluffs just off North Broadway street. I know SAC well. The area has really developed, although south Omaha has changed to a thriving Hispanic community. Council Bluffs has also developed with 3 Casinos pouring lots of money into the area. All of the Nebraskan's cross the river and gamble away. Since I have lived in both NE and IA, the Omaha / Council Bluffs area seems like one big city to me.
Thanks for your feedback.
