That may sound strange to most, but unchartered territory may be your best bet. I love my home state but, it is no longer the saving grace land that people once thought it to be.
Please see one of my other posts regarding the door smacking your rear as you skedaddle. Enjoy Vegas or AZ with the other transplants LOL.

Default Dallas Here I Come

Today I took my step towards relocating to Texas from California. I gave an job interview and the company(In Irving) wants to meet me in person before giving an offer.

I'm in the IT field and we are family of 4. I will appreciate if some IT guys here in the board can give me some idea about IT job market in Dallas area. California, even after so much slow down in the economy is still not within my reach as far as housing is concern.a 1600 Condo/Townhome with 3 levels(2005 built) in Dublin area costs 500K.I have not included the commute to main Baayarea from Dublin.

Some info on Asian Indian Community locations will also help.

Jay, I am not Indian, but I do work in Irving (Las Colinas) and there is a pretty large Indian/Pak population in Irving. In fact, within 5 miles of my work, there are at least 3 Indian/Pak grocery stores. About 5 miles east of here is "Korea Town". Just south of Las Colinas is a good selection of Mexican/Vietnamese/and even African stores/restaurants. Irving is pretty diverse. Good luck!

I'm not sure exactly what you've written but all houses and buildings in northern California are not made to withstand an 8.3 quake. Do you realize how devasting that would be? Where did you read that information?

The store I miss the most from California is Trader Joe's! I know there are Whole Foods and Central Market here in Texas/Dallas but it just isn't the same. Trader Joes is a smaller type store, although the chain itself is spread nationwide. However, considering in Texas I don't have to drive the 10 freeway or Sepulveda Blvd., I can do with out TJs!

Why do Californians insist that we have to have TJ's here in Texas?? Why do you want a smaller store when you can get a greater variety from Whole Foods and Central Market? Not trying to start anything, I just don't understand this fascination with TJ's when we have something better, IMO.

Probably because we like TJ's better.

What we have here is not better, it's different. I don't know why people keep insisting on comparing Whole Foods and Central Market (both very expensive stores) with TJ's - a store known for great deals and bargain shopping.

The main similarity between the first two stores mentioned and TJ's is they share the demographic of people who like gourmet food.
