Re: Where do you live / where have you lived?
Pflugerville, TX (p is silent)
Originally, Inglewood, CA then Cypress, CA. Uncle Sam's Army in Ft. Ord, CA, then to Austin, TX where my mother lived. Went to school there, met my wife who is from Flippin, AR, yes Flippin, and it is beautiful in the middle of the Ozarks. Ranger Boats are manufactured there. We spent 3 years there where my daughter was born, and then we returned to Austin where my son was born. Another 2 years in Corona CA, just to prove I left CA years earlier for so many reasons and then back to Austin and then Pflugerville for almost 9 years now.
Get to CA if you can; lovely scenery and climate away from the smog and crowds. AR is very nice too. "I was not born in Texas, but got here as quick as I could!"
