BTW took a pay-cut so we could live elsewhere, FWIW
I wish that more people believed that, because we would have more room to go sailing by ourselves.

We love Galveston Bay and Houston Area. How do people think that fuel, motor oil, and plastic gets made? Much of our bad air comes from Mexico City especially when they burn their fields. But we have to suffer from federal reg that do nothing to help the air. It just destroys our small engines!

If you move to Houston area and are kind, then you will meet the greatest people in the world that can do anything to help you. Houston feels like a small town and very welcoming.

I was not born here, but I moved here as fast as I could.
