What do you miss from where / when you grew up?

Firstly, I"m delighted to have stumbled upon this blog: An American in Dublin, written by an ex-pat, like me, who's a Yank living in Ireland.  Particularly I want to give a shout out to his most recent post which looks at the creature comforts of home and missing them.  I was a bit homesick yesterday, that's normal on the Fourth of July but it got me thinking...what do I currently miss most about where I grew up (besides the obvious - family & friends) and how has this changed for me throughout the years?

The below is a response I left to Glenn's blog.  I hadn't intended it to become a blog in its own right but I went on so darn long I thought I should post it here.  And don't forget to check out Glen's blog - he's newly(ish) arrived in Ireland and has very good insight into the immigrant experience.
