Canadian alternative to American Express?

I am a longtime AmEx customer (nothing fancy, just a charge card) who just moved to the US from Canada and who needs a new credit card. I love the customer service of AmEx--I trust them, especially, for travel and for dispute resolution. So far AmEx Canada has been iffy (reasons below). I'm happy to pay an annual fee. What's my best bet? [more inside]

I'm moving with a relatively small amount of stuff (probably 15-20 boxes, either no furniture or only small pieces) across the US (DC to Seattle) next month.

Book Recommendation for a Moving Friend

A friend is (probably temporarily) moving to England from the US and I would like to get her a book. Her two favorites are One Hundred Years of Solitude and The Dispossessed. Something that is set in or otherwise features England would be a bonus. Any recommendations? Thanks!

Company's been taxing me in the wrong state. What are the implications?

About a month ago I moved from State A to State B to work in my company's new office. Even though I updated my location with my company and our payroll system, I've still been having only State A taxes withheld, and no State B taxes. Since I'm living and working in State B, I should only have State B taxes withheld as of my move. Turns out that, due to an oversight, the subsidiary of my company that I officially work for isn't yet registered in State B. They're going to fix it on the payroll side, but what implications should I be aware of? Does it matter whether it's fixed by end of year? More details below the fold: [more inside]

Should I Move to TX?

I'm in CA and my company has folded. My research shows that moving to TX would be a good plan because, running the numbers, there is a reasonable amount of daily postings for positions I am suitable for across the TX metro job markets, and house prices are considerably less (read: affordable) compared to CA metro areas. So it all makes reasonable sense except for this: I have no emotional drive to relocate there. [more inside]
