You have no idea how much I appreciate your responses everyone. DH is still in California doing his interview at Beale. He'll be offered the job Thursday assuming all goes well and he has to decide then if we'll go or not. 2 days away! Anyhow, he has driven ALL around the base extensively HE reallylke Grass Valley but we won't live there as its so far from Sacramento.

There is a lot to do around here, but the traffic is horrible and I think people have gotten so rude in the last 10 years or so. If you like big cities, you...

I don't know much about Marysville, some of my in...
I worked at the Salvation Army for a while and many of the women who were applying for assistance and Angel Tree gifts for their children had very nice purses. BUT... I didn't judge. Who knows what the story is/was. They could have been fakes or perhaps they were gifts or perhaps they bought them when they had money and now they were going through hard times. I usually commented on how much I liked their purses and we'd get into how great Louis Vuitton bags are and such....
I used to have an obsession with Kate Spade purses. I think I had 6 or 7 and each was $200 and up. I had a Prada, 3 coaches, and some other designers too.

Thank you for your replies. We actually are very fortunate in that we have a choice. We already have orders to Florida, but, if we accept this job we're being offered in the next week, we'll be going to California. If we turn it down, we keep the orders that already exist for Florida. EIther way I am very excited but I don't know anything about the places in terms of schools or kid friendly attractions.
anyone?
