    I'm from Toledo and I always thought of moving to Michigan preferably on Lake Michigan or Huron but probably not going to happen now since my 60 yr old parents just moved to the Seattle area last Summer. We have family there and he landed a promotion from the same company he worked for here. So it wasn't to difficult. Now I'm trying like hell to finish a degree at the University of Toledo so I can join them.

    My parents took a slight loss on their home. Not as dramatic as it would've been if it was this year that they tried to sell it though.

    Michigan does need help. My family is from Monroe and you can just feel the lack of opportunity in the town and the other towns in Michigan. Of course, not that Toledo is any better. In fact, it is on its last legs too.

    Good luck to you and your family.
