Fixing up old houses sounds like fun, but so does finding one you like and staying for a spell. I guess the idea of roots is old stuff, especially in a culture so devoid of them. Americans are like succulents. Shallow roots, living on the surface...

I'm not from St. Louis, though I was stranded there once. I'm originally from Europe, by way of my great-grandparents who migrated here more than 100 years ago. I grew up at the Comstock a generation ago when life was simple and people still believed what you said to them. Keep the faith.
We get about 130 hits in a week. That's good numbers. I attribute this to the fact that we're now on Yahoo, Bigfoot, Hot Bot and Alta Vista. We're also on a couple of Euro searches under Lar-Len, USA, cowboys, Americana, legends... all the stuff them European types really go for. I guess they're just too reserved to write us.

My Volkswgen bus broke down in front of Chuck Berry's house there in 1991. I spent the day at a Fina gas station. Nope, no sights. All the other times were just drive-throughs.
