For example. I will probably move from here (maybe next year, or the year after). I've no idea where to. I will wait and see what the circumstances are the day before I go. I never plan things like that in advance :)

I'm not much for long range planning either. I tend to do things on impulse, which has worked for me
in most instances, but has also turned around to bite me a few times. Life is short so we might as well
make the most of it while we can.

No. It's not the metric system. It's the £'s and the Euro's, that are attacking the $

I was trying an obscure movie reference on you.
Sorry, American humor can be a little hard to understand.

"Yeah, back when a dollar was actually worth something".
"I long for those days too"!

Wow...talk about obscure.

The movie reference was from Pulp Fiction. ( metric system )

What was obscure about the two other ones?

Bartman, If you really want to move to Florida, I can give you some tips on what to do and what not to do. Bradenton is not bad, but there is a lot of crime in Manatee county. North of Tampa is better - and cheaper. A house like this currently goes for 200K.

whs: What I probably should do is pay a visit to my relative and take a look around.
I will take a look at north side. Thanks a bunch. PS:If you have some tips to pass along
please do. I would appreciate it.

LH: If you like Quentin Tarantino movies you will like Pulp Fiction. Reservoir Dogs
is good, too.
