    Parts of the Metroplex are nice. some, not so nice. Houston is a toilet though.

    And don't get me started on the desolate wasteland that is the Texas Panhandle.

    No kidding. I had to explain to some people last weekend that saying "cali" was a complete "tell" that you weren't from there.

    Riverside is not LA....at all. It is almost a barren wasteland to me and it's almost like you really are not in California at all...more like ...Neveda.

    Personally, I think you are making the right choice. At this stage of your career, and being close to retirement, it's simply not worth it, IMO. Having to uproot your family for 5 years or so isn't worth the hassle it would bring, especially if you plan to retire in Jacksonville anyway.
    Pessimists are well informed optimists

    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Fair enough. Of course he also recorded the song before the whole SoCal/NoCal thing took off. And how many people really are "from California?"
