    Affordable and plentiful air conditioning is perhaps the biggest reason for relocating to Texas.
    Darned heat can be oppressive there, I’m sure some of the more seasoned Texans remember no A/C just some old rattle trap fan on the mantle.

    Yeah, Mexican beef, in Mexico, is awesome. I don't know what they do to it, and probably don't want to know, but we can't get carne asada or any other beef dish in the States quite like we can in Mexico.

    Let's see, Dave's, Applebee's, and Outback. BION, before he closed down due to lack of employees our local butcher shop in the metropolis of Weed did a pretty dang good brisket every Saturday. He was equally good with butts and ribs and such. Even smoked the tri tips before searing off. Some straight up gen-yoo-wine BBQ. Dude is a total foodie and had some outstanding products. I miss his shop dearly.

    When you're back let's all do a BBQ tour of San Diego. That should just take a couple of hours.

    But living in SD, you can just go to Mexico if you want REALLY real Mexican food. And I do so regularly.

    That was an anti-Tex-Mex comment, not an anti-NoCal comment

    We actually have 3 pretty good Mexican restaurants up here. One place makes chilaquiles as good or better than I've had in Mexico. Another one makes an awesome birria. No menudo though, which is too bad. We don't have a large Hispanic population and most Gringos aren't into menudo. This one is!! Just not that scald your tongue out stuff, ai, ai, ai!

    We may have, but it would take a lot more than that to get me out of here. We truly love where we live. I'm watching a financial show right now. They said gas is over 4 dollars a gallon in California. I paid 2.54 in Stephenville, Tx. yesterday.

    Oak Smoke I think you have doubled your money by now, at least.

    We are seeing an up take in people from other states in our area. Most of them can't believe how reasonable the real estate is. When we retired here 3 years ago from north Texas we bought a 3200 square foot mid century ranch with a pool, huge live oak trees, and 2 acres for less than 250K. We have spent quite a bit more making it what we want, but it was a nice place from the start. It's just another reason to give out area a look.
