Re: Those Poor People Affected by Hurricane Katrina

Maybe, but they would have to be fairly recent burials as bodies decompose pretty darn quickly. And lots of those graveyards are incredibly old (and beautiful, by the way).

Queens in NY that is, not flamboyant theatre types. . .

Texas Brit will soon have to be retired and replaced with a more appropriate name as me and the missus are moving back to NYC. Used to live...

Re: Don't move back to London - there are some very good reasons everybody's leaving

I'm with you W10; I think some of this is sour grapes, patting ourselves on the back, "aren't we all glad we moved away" stuff, meant to eliminate any lingering self-doubt about the move we've made....

Re: Legal Practice in Canada

Andrew:

We are pretty close on that test thing on the Immigration site -- 84 for me, 77 for her, but I would probably be primary. Those are pretty solid scores, right?

Re: Legal Practice in Canada

All this information is great.

So the big question is, other things being equal which is the easier, UK or US (quota and timeline wise)?

Re: Legal Practice in Canada

Thanks for all the tips folks. Very much appreciated.

Leaving California (DMV woes)

Word of advice if you are leaving Calif - FILE A CHANGE OF ADDRESS WITH THE DMV!

Re: Austin, Texas info

For real estate listings, have a look at www.realtor.com and do a "map search."

The music scene is a real draw here.

In spite what the Chamber of Commerce would have you believe, however, this...

Re: Where to stay in L.A.

Definitely Santa Monica is the way to go. If you don't plan on getting a car (and I can't emphasize enough how much you should get a car), SM is really your best bet too. You can walk down to...

Re: Austin, Texas info

I'm in Austin. We've been here about a year. Good mix of a big city vibe and small city pace of living and less stress. I am a big city person; living in NYC and LA for the last ten years and London...

Re: Is title insurance really necessary when buying a home?

Re: Is title insurance really necessary when buying a home?

Actually, the reason I like ("like" may be an overstatement) being a commercial real estate lawyer is that is one of the least offensive types of law to practice. Most of time everyone is happy to...

I am a real estate lawyer BUT I never do residential home sales (commerical only, and that is very different).
