Hot Summers - 8/13/2012

If you like the hot weather and long summers, then you would love Texas. I grew up here in Dallas, TX. Some days it catches me by surprise and I am really enjoying the hot weather. It is really very nice at night if you happen to be somewhere with a breeze after the sun goes down. It makes a double edge sword when it comes to outdoor activities. When there is water involved, it can be very nice but also stifling at the same time. If water is not involved, it can be plain miserable.[read more...]

Pine Drive not so Christian School, Dickinson TX - 8/13/2012

Do not believe any of the ratings posted recently. They are probably from the church pastor and not from satisfied parents. The school is in total chaos. The juniors and seniors from last year did not have the right classes and credits. Many of the juniors had to attend school this summer to get caught up. The curriculum is terrible and not up to date. The school’s athletic program is in shambles. The former headmaster was caught in unprofessional situations by students. She had to be one of the most unprofessional, uncaring, incompetent school administrators that have ever been in teaching. She has NO certificates in the state of Texas. DO NOT enroll there!!! Home school your child if needed. [read more...]

Not so Great - 12/14/2011

Texas is not the ideal place for everyone, least of all me.We live in a town so boring, the excitement is watching the grass grow. Nothing to do, no place to go withour traveling hundreds of miles. Wind blows in the summer all the time.High utility bills,no jobs ( few like Wal-Mart,Burger King etc) pay minium at best. Its a right to work state so employers can hire slave labor.The restraunts are mediocre at best. Been here 3 years too long.Want to move to Las Vegas!!!![read more...]

Texas is an armpit of America - 11/17/2011

Most part of Texas is just butt ugly and its an armpit of the United State of America. Mostly in the panhandle and a large area in west Texas is just plain and ugly nothing to see. Far east Texas is ok there a lot of Oak and Pine trees which is looks better than the rest of texas. Its so hot and humid here in Texas and its seem like summer is getting longer every year and less rain every year and water is becoming a serious problem here. Nothing really much to do and if you try to do something fun outdoor during the summer you can get sick from the heat. I have live in Arizona, California, and New Mexico and Texas is the worse state I ever live. I am moving back out west maybe to Oregon or Reno Nv where I will be closer to California and Oregon and I just can't wait to move out of Texas and its easy to get tired of living in Texas than all the other state I live in before. I thought that Arizona was bad living in Phoenix but no texas is worse than Arizona. I miss the drier air and the Mountains out west and the blue ocean. I am fixing to move out of Texas very soon.[read more...]

Very Hot and Dry Summer - 10/24/2011

After living at the Lake of the Ozarks for two years, and becoming acclimated to snowy winters, our family moved back to Texas in early 2010 to land in the hottest summer in Texas history. In two words, it was absolutely miserable. The house we live in does not have ample insulation at all. Even with multiple layers of curtains, three window units and the central air on almost constantly, the inside temperature was 85 degrees or higher during the day, for months. The outdoor air was thick and suffocating, and being outside was tolerable for a few minutes at a time, even early in the morning. I do not recommend Texas for seniors, children, or middle-aged women who suffer from hot flashes. I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, and I cannot wait to leave the South forever.[read more...]

Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood, Texas - 10/4/2011

The Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood, Texas metro area is the best place to live and raise a family. The Cost of living and quality of life are affordable. The perdominance of active duty and retirees gives the aire of stability and comforts of hometown living. Affordable housing: homes for sale and rental market rates are competitive. Country living at it bests. From Texas you can travel anywhere in any direction by air or by land and enjoy life. [read more...]

Not so great - 9/21/2011

Texas is not so great because the weather is so miserable here from late May until Sept. Not so pretty here and its alright in a few places. Its so boring and not many sight seeing. Out west like California,Oregon,Washington,and Colorado there is many sight seeing to see and many outdoors things to do and here in Texas if you try to do some fun outdoors activity you might get a heat stroke because its so hot and humid here in Texas most of the time its over 100 degree everyday and drought is a huge problem and a growing problem. The panhandle of Texas is just butt ugly and its flat with no trees and mostly grass. Southeast Texas there a lot of pine trees which I like but its still flat and is so humid compare to the panhandle. West texas is very boring nothing to see and there is some mountains until you reach closer to EL Paso but EL Paso is a boring city and ugly. There is many illegals living in Texas and its a very serious problem because they are causing a lot of crime problems. The job market is a joke here in Texas and I have no luck finding a really good job with high pay. I should have stay in California or move Oregon or maybe to Colorado but my family talk into me to move to Tx and now they all move out. Some people here are nice but not very many and they are mostly snobs. I have visit other states where people are so much nicer and I came from a state where people are much nicer than Tx. Property taxes is a joke here and its so high that I don't know how people here can afford their house payment with those high property taxes. Other states like Oregon and Colorado have a much lower property taxes. I am moving to Oregon or colorado because the weather there is so much more comfortable than Texas. Its may rain a lot in Oregon during the winter but I rather live somewhere where the summer is so nice and not deal with a crappy summer in Tx. I am fixing to move out of Texas very soon.[read more...]
