Thanks! Missouri has too many things I'm not looking for, so I'll keep searching.

I know! I am literally counting down the hours til I get to leave. It's like getting a 'Get Out of Jail Free' card!!! LOL

I had a doctor friend who moved from West Los Angeles to some city in MO and we threw him a going away party. He was back in West LA in three months. I think he just wanted the welcome back party!!! LOL

I lived in northeast Dallas for 6.5 years, and recently relocated to Santa Barbara. Everything is much more expensive here - and I do mean everything, even things that don't make sense, like cans of soup and gasoline. Housing is stratospheric in comparison. However, it is so amazingly beautiful here that I am grateful on a daily basis that I have moved. The mountains and the ocean, the gorgeous never-to-be-developed coastline and the huge national forest and mountains really are breathtaking. It is impossible to be down here if you just go outside. Creation glows here. Texas does have some good qualities. It's very cheap living. Houses don't always appreciate. You can invest and ten years down the line find you've lost money. I'd never lived anywhere like that before! Be sure you get the history of the area in TX you're moving to before sinking in a wad of cash if you want your investment to grow. Texas never really got over being a separate country. Texans have an ornery sense of independence and most are very polite. Some rednecks are crude, but there are jerks everywhere. Nevertheless it's just not a beautiful place to live, any way you cut it. Wildflowers like bluebonnets in the spring are lovely, but overall you really have to stretch to see beauty in the Texas landscape. It's scrubby and spare overall and a lot of it is flat as a pancake. The weather is hard to take, with absolutely brutal summers and storms that are really dangerous.
California is expensive, yes, but I feel like I am in the Garden of Eden in comparison to flat ol', plain ol' North Texas. I'd never go back.

I hear ya, Au Contraire
Santa Barbara is a beautiful place.

You got to visit Solvang at Christmas time and have some hot apple cider and walk around and go into all the little shops there for me.

Well, Welcome to California! I'll be there some day, I swear! (stuck in Texas at the moment)

I was simply talking about hijacking the topic of CA vs. TX You see if I was to bring in the fact that we are in SW. MO now then everyone would start saying stuff like "oh don't worry I wouldn't want to live there" and things start getting off track from there....oh wait it kinda DID I'm happy for all the Cali folks that love their fine state and in fact I have a buncha friends and even a daughter in college there. I'm just getting closer to home (northern OH out in the country) without the crazy winters! Hey, saw my first lightning bug in 40 sumpthin years the other night
