I hope you mean the Oompa Loompas and not the Winged Monkeys. The Winged Monkeys are not creepy at all; they are adorable.

I have to make some adjustments if I'm to live in Oz. I thought one of the first things I needed to do is to make sure everything is legal. Yesterday I went to the Bureau of Magic; the only thing they gave me was a visitor pass.

I did not know this until I got here; Oz does not use the same calendar we use. They use a completely different system.

In some ways, Oz is behind us in technology. Though they have flat screens, most televisions and computers use the old crystal ball display. All phones still use the crystal ball display making them bulkier than the cell phones we are familiar with. My cell phone is not compatible. If I want to stay connected, I have to get a new phone.

It's not surprising that Oz, like any other place, has a china town. What is surprising is that the name takes on a very literal meaning. Every person and everything is china [porcelain]. I had to see this place for myself, at least part of what I heard is correct: A beautiful species indeed.

Are these people able to leave or is their town a beautiful prison? I'm getting conflicting information.

Whenever I mention where I'm from the immediate response is always the same: "Is that anywhere near Kansas?" I learned why. A famous Ozian princess started out as an orphan from Kansas.

Weather reporters covering Hurricane Florence are urging people in Florida to evacuate.

Not because of the hurricane. Just because it's Florida.

Florida is a tropical hell. That's why I moved to Emerald City, Oz.

That sounds like a different place with the same name.

With apologies for generalizing, I’ve always rejected retiring or wintering in Florida because it is “G-d’s Waiting room”. Hot, humid, flat, dull ,buggy. No thanx! The final straw , however, is that, due to the mineral content of the water, you cannot get decent tasting bread.
