when i moved to austin for college in 1970, the population was 250k, with 39k of that being UT students...how times have changed :wave

the austin-round rock-san marcos metro area now has 1.7 million... i'm not sure they even counted it as a "metro area" back in 1970

Um...newbie here. No Latin. People like to lift their hands in a couple of places (can't remember what they're called, but we've had that discussion here so I'm sure y'all know what I'm talking about). But I visited St. John Vianney (I live closer to it than St. William), and I prefer St. William; it just seems more traditional to me or something--I don't know if that's a good reason or not. Or it could just be that daily Mass is at noon instead of 8 a.m. :D . I'm far from any kind of authority, though. :fyi: The people I've talked to at St. William have been wonderful.

Give me California freeways any day (former Californian--San Diego and San Jose). But after six years I'm almost used to it.

That's Cedar Park, not Cedar Creek. :) Cedar Park and Leander are nice communities, still more rural than Austin or even Round Rock, not as easily accessed via freeways and whatnot. There's also Pflugerville, which is between Austin and RR.

Of course, you could go south, into Kyle or Buda. I'm not familiar with them, though.

St. William is in RR, as is St. John Vianney. St. Mary Cathedral Parish downtown has Latin mass.


mea, I am very close to you at Ft. Hood!

30 minute commute in traffic would be dreamy for you huh Rachael? :wink:

Why Austin? Is that only where the job is? Nothing in San Antonio area...?


San Antonio is a co-op? I'd rather be able to visit when I want too!!!

I live in the San Antonio area and avoid Austin whenever I can, mostly because of the traffic which is particularly onerous when all you're wanting to do is go through Austin (middle of the night is best). But it does have some certain charm and some fun areas. I'm going to guess that taxes (property/school) are high in the Austin area along with automobile insurance rates, but that is not unusual for cities. You will not need heavy winter clothing for there though.

Mr. Mea is a native of SD, graduated from Helix High School. We lived in El Cajon, La Mesa (near the library), and San Diego (near North Park for a short time, then half mile *this* direction from Lemon Grove, a mile in *that* direction from Spring Valley).

Remember, those who flunk out of Texas A&M have their middle fingers cut off and are sent to the little school in Austin. If they flunk out of there, they are sent down the street to the capital :fyi:

Oh, yes, let's! :cloud9:

Y'all are almost the only Catholic people I know at the moment. :fyi: It would be great fun to put faces to names. :cloud9:

Doom would have to pay his own way, though, unless I get around to settling his bill for the bathroom remodel.

It was an Air Force Base before being BRACed and the city taking it over.
