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]

Mom is moving up--what next?

My mother is moving from NYC, where she's lived for 30 years, to my town in the Boston 'burbs. It's a good location in an over 55 community that will give her independent mobility to Boston via public transit, and she'll see us, and our kidlet, regularly. But what else to do to make a good transition? [more inside]

Home is where the heat is?

I got a fantastic job offer, but it's in Phoenix. I'm not sure I'd like living in Phoenix. Is it worth taking a much (much!) better job if you're not crazy about the locale? [more inside]

rebooting my life in a new city after a ended relationship and

In a few weeks, I'm relocating from DC to Los Angeles for a new job - I've been in DC for most of the last 8 years, in the same job for 7.5, and just got out of a three year relationship. So suffice to say that I haven't had a lot of major life changes in quite some time? This move fixes a lot of issues for me (more details inside) - how do I make the most of it and hit the ground running, socially and otherwise? [more inside]

Where Can I Rent for No More Than $1000/Month and Go Carless?

OK, big broadbrush question. I'm 60, retired, with an annual income of $50,000. It's time for me to move. But, where? I'm looking for a place where I can rent for no more than $1000 per month, don't need a car, and that's not bereft of reasons to be there. Climate matters. I.e., sun is good, ice is bad. Is this possible in the U.S.?

How to move to Canada and bring my UK small business with me?

We currently live in the UK and my wife has secured a job in Vancouver, so we're moving to Canada! Yay! However, I am self employed and run my own small business in the UK.

Anyone done this (or something similar) before? Got any advice? [more inside]

Egypt Was Good Enough for King Tut

MovingFarAwayFilter: GF is dead-set on moving from Brooklyn to Cairo, Egypt, for at least a year.

I desperately need some 1st/2nd person accounts of living in Cairo / Egypt to help make this decision. [more inside]

applying for work in another city

I am wanting to move back to a major metro area from my current locale, about 10 hours drive. I've been living in relatively small town for about 3 years now. The job opportunities in my previous locale are much greater and I'm getting tired of swimming upstream. I'd prefer to have work there before moving but it's problematical applying long distance. What's the best way to apply for work in another town? [more inside]

Possible to relocate car seats?

Is it feasible to relocate a car seat to provide more legroom? I'm tall, and the new cars I'm interested in do not have enough driver legroom. Are there companies who can move the seat hardware back? Will this void warranties or otherwise damage the car? I'm thinking of some of the smaller Hondas and Toyotas such as the Toyota Matrix and the Honda CRV.

What is Albuquerque like?

Never lived outside of California, but here I am moving to Albuquerque in a few weeks... I've visited a few times and like it enough there to be happy about the move (I'll be a grad student at UNM, living in a studio apartment north of campus), but what can I expect as far as actually living there goes? What are the people like? The climate? The culture? Any New Mexican MeFites willing to give me their views and advice about the place?
