Moved here in 2006 from a 10 yr stint in the mountains of SW Virginia. Now a city boy - fortunately, it doesn't matter where I live - always something good in every place.

Read in the paper today that air fresheners in the home can be bad for you if they contain 1,4-DCB (dichlorobenzene). Apparently they reduce lung function according to an article in Environmental Health Perspectives. The stuff is found in air fresheners, toilet bowl cleaners, and deodorizers, so check the labels. Buyer beware.
