    Ah. The old ploy of: "You get to do everything. But you'll be your own boss!"

    My family visits this area each summer. Beautiful. There's a downtown with a park, boat dock, some little shops, and the most popular restaurant turns into a bar. There's also a DQ. Abbey Springs has a nice golf course, too.

    The lake is gorgeous. I expect cost of living is high, though.

    Not to offend anyone, but 20-25K, really? I know the area a little bit, and it's not like Lake Geneva is some bustling metropolis where you can supplement that income with freelance work.

    Don't you qualify for foodstamps and section 8 at 20-25?

    That's pretty much par for the course nowadays.

    For what it's worth, while Lake Geneva is a resort/vacation area, you can live in plenty of areas that are not high-cost-of-living. Many of the homes on the lake itself are the playgrounds of millionaires, most of the locals themselves are simple, middle-class folks.

    Last note: I went to the movie theater at a neighboring town to see the newest "Miami Vice." Something screwy happened to the film, and I think it started the movie about 40 minutes in. Very weird. Not a good movie, anyway.
