sberdrow said it likes it's supposed to be; I can't say it any better. Thanks, sberdrow. If that constitutes living in the early 1900s, so be it. It sounds great to me.

your welcome, I agree with you about the early 1900s, that was a wonderfull era for families. My family is the only family in my circle of friends that still sits at the kitchen table at night for dinner, all of us.

Wow, I commend you and your family for that. It takes a strong leader of the home to make sure that priorities are followed and decent values remain strong. Good job!!

If your pool was a beach and you had a pretty girl tanning next to you I might be jealous.

That's true for most, but the one's that stay inside are the home bodies. But I did get a pool put in for one of many reason. We are surround by lakes / body of water. So really there is no excuse for not going outside and play in the summer. I even mountain bike in the summer in 100 degree heat. More sweat, but I dig the reward afterwards.

Trust me, I'll give all this up in a heart beat to be back to CO.

Then again most of my life was spent in Colorado. So yea, I miss it!

Austin to me is just very young, I am not young anymore or care to party downtown. I want more to life then drink, party and drive 8 hrs to do some things as sberdrow mentioned below .

Besides being a life time Bronco fan, I love the mountains, the trees, and the people of Colorado.

Can anybody think of any reason why I should not move to Loveland, just south of Fort Collins?

Good luck on your escape from Texas.
Yeah, but bet you found Austin is not that cheap, or you hated breathing that AC air for 10 months or the lack of direction from being land locked...and there are outdoor activities , if you stand the HUMIDITY!..and the drivers? OYYY I am from NJ/NY and Cal. and handle those highways, but here, afraid to get in my car to get milk! Austin does have one of the highest rates of accidents! I , too am looking to escape, to Co., possibly or Norther Cal. Look forward to hearng about your move.

Austin is not really Texas and the jab is meant. Not to offend Texans but to say the rest of Texas is NOT liberal, diverse or intellectually interesting, is it? I am of course over generalizing, and agree it is big state. But I don't understand the overrated pride. You can't tell me Texas is more beautiful than the Pacific northwest for example, or than southern Co., or Utah..the beaches, well, I am from NJ and if you have seen anything other than Newark airport to NY city you know Jersey beaches are great. California, like it or hate it, is beautiful and very diverse. Northern cal so different than SCal in all ways and the coast drive..gorgeous! I am in Austin and planning to leave and have met many , very white Texans with that great pride , but have met few who have actually been any other place! And MY GOODNESS..it is hot and HUMID, which makes it hard to enjoy what is here. And lets not even start on the roadways and signs or lack of, mega manna attitude and overall disliike for anyone, well , who isn't Texan..JUST M.H.O. from a girl still searching for her home, and of course home is what you make of it and Austin has its charm, but it is more liberal than San Diego and thus , not really Texas.
