A question I hope y'all might be able to help me with.

I am retiring in May and I want to move back to Southern California, which I should never have left. Unfortunately, I just discovered my 22-year old Quaker parakeet, which cannot possibly be adopted out, is illegal in California. Is there any way to get a waiver for a bird that you've had that long? Or what is your opinion about having one illegally, as in how to get it in in the first place, and how to keep it from being taken away from you when you are living there? And how to be able to take it to the vet, since it is not legal to have. Needless to say, I would prefer a legal method.

Fry's is no more.


I'm considering moving to San Antonio.

Or at least the area.

I am tired of hurricanes and floods in Houston, I'm working on the assumption that the cold was not so bad in San Antonio, and I'm retiring from teaching, not because my district is bad, it isn't compared to most, but because I'm disgusted with how politicians and the media, for the most part, have treated us. I always said I'd never retire.

Anyway, I like theater and live music and other forms of live entertainment.

A lot of the suburbs seem a bit pricey, but I'm hoping there's less pricey if you look?

Anyway, if you would be so kind, what can you tell me about living in San Antonio?

Checking out a rumor.

I've had no luck Googling this, nor asking for documentation from the source where I heard the rumor. This allegation interests me because it would be explosive. Is there any evidence that power plants shut down, during this freeze, because rising oil prices meant they would be operating at a loss? I believe that price gouging could have caused them to operate at a loss, I have no trouble believing that. It's the shutting down during this freeze for that reason that I find hard to believe even of Republicans. I've only heard this the one place, and as I say cannot find any documentation of it.
