      Can't take the poll. Relocated to Texas years ago. Like I said: I was Texas before Texas was cool! I'm going to place your link at some of my HUBs about Texas to redirect traffic here. I guess you're not convinced to relocate from southern California though? It's a hard decision especially if you have kids. But I'd recommend it if you're thinking about it.
