Moved here to the Central Coats six months ago.

My observations:

"Right on" is part of everyday vernacular, said by everyone from derelicts to bankers. The only people that say this back in Wisconsin are people that have been smoking pot since the '60's.

People in California dress up their dogs and take them everywhere...especially parades. People who do this in Wisconsin are, uh, "special".

Even the bums have a good attitude out here. They'll put the touch on you, but even if you decline, they say "Have a nice day, dude!". In Wisconsin, you better give the guy with the rag SOMETHING, or get your car keyed.

Cops actually wave and smile, even if they do not know you personally. Doing the same to a cop in Wisconsin is good for a pull over

Seeing a grotesquely obese person in California means the circus is in town. You never see only one in Wisconsin...more than likely a herd.

You are a white, Anglo-Saxon, middle aged male; and everywhere you go, YOU are the minority. Wisconsin: What's a minority?

They don't know how to play the Blues out here. OK, Wisconsin is not Chicago. But it's close.

California: a cornucopia of delectables from fresh seafood, prime beef, fresh fruit, nuts, veggies, and Wine!
Wisconsin: Cheese and beer.
