    I used to be from the Pittsburgh area and then moved my business to Virginia 4 years ago. I'm considering moving back though.

    Hello from Erie, PA. (I have a son living in Moon Township while he does a co-op with Valspar). He's a Penn State student, but he took his Nittany Lions window stickers off while he's in Pittsburgh.

    I'm from around Pittsburgh. About a half hour north in a little town called New Ken. If any of you guys need help, let me know. I'm looking for something to take up the free time in the summer. I'm going to Penn State too.

    My wife and I lived in New Kensinton, back in 1973 when we first got married. She worked at the hospital and I was still going to school at IUP. I remember driving back from class and knowing when I was close to home because of the smog. New Kensinton was a pretty little town then, but I haven't been back since.

    there is no longer smog in the Pittsburgh area... the steel mills have been gone many years.

    Yea, when I was still in school, I had friends from Beaver Falls, Monaca, Aliquippa, and that general area. When we went down to visit my son in Moon township a couple weeks ago, we drove around those places (he works in Rochester). The mills are all closed and there's not much left of the towns. It looks like anybody who had any money moved into Moon township.

    My wife is originally from Elizabethtown. Her dad still lives at home, her mom's in a nursing home in town. We spend a lot of weekends in that area. My daughter just got a teaching job in Palmyra, she'll be living in Lebanon. So we kind of have you surrounded!
