Your Neighborhood

Here’s something I’m curious about: your neighborhood, and why you live where you live.

Growing up, my family never moved – except for a move cross-town when I was 2. I didn’t experience moving and living in other places until I graduated from college, so I took things in my neighborhood for granted.

My current neighborhood is largely residential and feels fairly suburban, even though it’s within city limits. There are some expensive houses nearby, and many mid-range ranches. We’ve got a new shopping plaza (grocery store, etc.) just 2 blocks away, the expressway about 4 blocks away, and public transportation nearby. The University of Denver is also close-by, but it’s far enough away that we don’t have throngs of students everywhere. In essence: quiet.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
