Default Hello from cold and wet UK

I am a supportive spouse relocating to Houston on July 1st. We have two kids who'll be 8 and 6 when we arrive. I'm keen to get any advice....broadband/tv/phone (to stay in touch with the grandparents), schooling, areas to live (hubby will work downtown), furniture stores (as we're renting home out furnished) etc.
I'm giving up my job as a doc over here, would be interested in any other expat medics advice for retraining in the US.
So excited about our new opportunity to meet new friends and experience a different way if life. 2013 can't come quick enough!!!
Best wishes to all for the festive season,
J

Hi there and welcome to B.E.

I see that you've found your way around so I'll leave you with it.

Thanks for posting in the welcome inn.

Enjoy B.E.

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.

Rosemary
