I have a Le Creuset, a Cuisinart and my favorite, a Dru Holland from the forties. The le creuset is wonderful but the cuisinart works like a dog and is perfect going on three years. The dru holland was an ebay buy and looks to have never been used. If you want a lifetime piece try ebay for Cousances and Descoware (precursors to Le Creuset) and Dru Holland. If they are in good shape they are practically indestructable and I love the idea of giving them a new home.

As a landlord I concur with others--tell your landlord. Tenant combinations come in all sorts of flavors and I can't imagine most landlords blinking an eye at your relationship. That being said, I always want to know who lives in my building, be they human or animal. Recently a lovely, long-term tenant of mine decided to move her wonderful boyfriend into her apartment with her young daughter. I had no problem with it but have a requirement to have an application on file for every person in residence. He turned out to be a sex offender who had already turned in the address for compliance. We were all happy to see him go away. Good landlords will always work with good tenants as long as everyone is aboveboard.

Another vote for Louisville, KY. I've been keeping chickens (5 plus a rooster allowed inside city limits), raising veggies, and looking at putting bees on the roof at my to-the-lotline renovated church. Plenty of cheap housing, unbelievable food, and a pretty strong sustainable movement. Also strong theatre and arts, lots of bourbon and less than 5 hours to Indianapolis, Nashville, St. Louis and Chicago. Very easy life for not much money!
