"This is the best place on earth. I have moved to 48 places I can remember. I love it here. But I'm not moving again. I've lived in Chapel Hill on and off since the 70s. I'm a butterfly. A Gemini. But once you live here, nothing else stacks up...I wanted to get one of those signs that say 'It's just another day in paradise' but they all have beach themes." Melinda, 68, is originally from Raleigh and has lived in several other states including Florida, Maryland and Kentucky. She also shares she was conceived on V-J day.
