I don't know, but I like AZ a lot, despite things like SB1070. I love the fact that I can have temperate winters but if I want snow it's only a two hour drive. If I want beaches it's about a 4 hour drive to San Diego and even less to Rocky Point and it's 4 hours to Vegas or if you fly, you barely get to sit down before you're there.. We have more boats per capita than any other state, thanks to man-made lakes. I'm pretty sure we're in the running for most golf courses too - it's about a 45 minute ride to Tonto National Forest - over a million acres. It's a real treat horseback riding there - you get a feel for what the old West was really like. Then of course there's the White Mountain Apache Reservation...if you want to bring in your RV with SatTV, fine, but we've mostly been 'roughing it' by only using propane powered stuff...put your hot coals on a big boulder with your dutch oven on it.

What I always liked about Joizy is the high I use to get driving down the NJT and breathing in that good old refinery smoke.

I love the smell of Joizy in the morning!

I can't believe someone must have censored every video of Joe Piscipo doing "Are you from Joizy" on SNL on the Internet. I can't find a single clip of it online!

At the time, NJ was furious about those SNL skits. It was some of the funniest stuff they ever had on. I can't believe I can't locate a video of it.

Can anyone else?

Texas here--a lot of people think we always dress "western" right down to boots and cowboy hats! Not so, usually only during rodeo time! LOL

Shame on Flea for doing that!! Sheesh!

Most folks who live in Hawaii wouldn't ever want to live anywhere else. The circumstances aren't perfect in every way, for instance it is very expensive, there's quite a bit of social unrest, drugs are common, and crime is too high. But the up-side substantially overshadows the down-side.

Weekend inter-island jaunts are commonplace, and each island is different. So you can experience something very different just by waiting a week and going somewhere else close by, with different things to see and do. Waikiki Beach is an entity all its own, designed for tourism. So most visitors leave without having truly experienced life in Hawaii.

Hawaii is very big on on-going tennis tournaments all-year-round, so great exercise is fun and challenging rather than a chore, the sights are heaven-on-earth, and you can have a pristine coastline backed up to truly awesome mountain ranges, all within a miles' reach of each other.

Its politically liberal, with a liberal government and a governor who its a mystery how he ever got the job. But its not too bad, and like I said nothing is perfect. There is no Centrist/Independent party anyway, so one must live with one side or the other.

Having lived in most states at some point, and elsewhere too, I can safely proclaim, there's just no place like Paradise.

I live in Virginia and a lot of times people think that my state is full of redneck hicks and backwoods country folks. Most of the time it's people that have never been in my part of the state.

Thanks CF... There's a lot of great vids of Piscipo doing Sinatra around.

But I am amazed that I could not find a single video of him doing "I'm from Joisey... Are you from Joisey?"

There must be other people here who remember those skits.

They were really controversial, the NJ state government hated them and complained to try to get them off the air. I'm sure Piscipo later wanted them to go away too after they helped make him famous because once he made it he didn't need that kind of controversy.

One of my favorite TV skits of all times was the one where Piscipo is eating his lunch on a construction site in Joisey and the white powder from his hard hat is falling on the sandwich.... he says something like "Have you noticed things always taste better in Joisey?" I nearly died laughing!

I have never failed to find any tv clip I looked for online. This is the first time that has ever happened to me. And I have found ones much more obscure than that.

There had to have been a concerted effort to censor them.

Sb 1070 is a wonderful law, and I can't wait till Mr. Justice Scalia writes his opinion of the Arizona state law that was so brilliantly written, in part by the Kansas Secretary of State!
