    Raven, I wish I had known you were nearby---it would've been great to have met you, perhaps once the kid is settled during a return visit.

    I live in Texas and I'm not a political weirdo.....I'm not a cowboy/girl with a teenie weenie whatever. I do know that SSI is pretty good and easy to get started. All kinds of public assistance available. We found that building a house was the best route to take. That way,we could get the lift for the stairs, roll in showers, higher counters and wider doorways. What part of Texas are you looking at?

    don't go to arlington, if you come to the dfw area.......all the assistance won't get you around a completely inaccessable city....i can't speak for dallas, but ft worth is very accessable just too hot....city busses are easy and convenient and most public areas pretty easy to access....i'm not staying here but it has been okay for the interm.......i would stay if the heat did'nt kick my ass so bad....

    Sister1959 The Place we were looking at is sugar land Texas there are really beautiful houses and looks like the crime rate is really low almost the same as in the city that I live now here in Southern California. I don't know if you know anything about that city but it is also interesting about what you were mentioning about building a house which doesn't sound bad either but I wonder how much it would cost to build the house and to get the appropriate land. I'm a quad C4 C5 and a role in shower would be a dream come true especially with wide enough space throughout the house to be able to move around freely not like here where I live now that is only 450 ft.² one-bedroom apartment and I pay $775 a month for rent. As you can see with that kind of money I can probably pay mortgage on a house over there in Texas and for a very big beautiful house.

    For what it's worth, Austin is the greatest city in Texas and, quite possibly, the US. Lots of music, booze, women, lakes, college women, sports, topless women, and wonderful restaurants. The rest of Texas just produces loonies like DA

    That info would of been good seven years ago but not anymore because I'm happily married now just looking for a nice house to fulfill my dream. Although the house prices in Austin look pretty good as well. How is the crime rate in Austin, Texas?

    I'm just starting school in Austin, and I'm looking forward to all the things that Benny just mentioned :-)

    GRAD school, mind you... for those of you who are readers, you know that UT undergrad was just voted the #1 party school in America

    tekniko,
    I know where sugarland is, Houston.. Been there a couple of time and I love it there. The weather is great. I'm from Cali also, planning to move to Austin within the next year or so. I have to sell my house first, it's a tough market right now.. Anyways, what about health insurance? I ahve blue cross right now and to disconnect it and reapply when I get there. They would dicline me. Can we apply for state medical? Blue Cross said that I can transfer the policy over but the premium would be double , and right now I'm paying $150 a month. That's my only setback. Well let me know and good luck. You're right about the big beautiful house...

    we live in south Texas and although I can't really tell you about benefits - I can give you an idea of cost of living .. mortgage around 600$ monthly taxes 3200$ yearly (would be 3500$ but disability exemption and other)- we have a tax freeze due to disabilty for next 20 years I think - my home was appraised at 136000$ - about 2000'sq living space. in the last few months we have layed tile throughout the house(easier than carpet to roll on) and we are still working on our bathroom we have been showering in a huge roll in shower but the rest of the bathroom is in progress!

    and yah, Austin is way cool. :]
