Hi ehBeth! I'm forever grateful that I was so lucky as to know someone like Setanta, who knew the area and me.
Nobody ever moves straight here -- they grow up here, move away, and come back, or they move to the larger area and then later figure out this is where they want to be. People ask me where I lived before here and I say "Chicago" and they say "No, I mean in Columbus" and when I say "I moved straight here from Chicago" they say "Oh you have family here?" and I say "No, just a friend from Columbus who pointed me in the right direction."
