    The first fifteen years I worked for the Dept. of Energy, I got to travel to DC a lot.  While I was always nervous flying in and out of (then) Washington National, I enjoyed the Metro ride to my hotel (I hear it’s really bad now).

    Yes, there are tons of things to see and do in DC for children as well as adults.  Plus the place reeks of history.  OTOH, if you traveled about 500 miles further south, you’d reach our town of Aiken, which has many of the same things Washington has, although on an admittedly smaller scale.  The cost of living is much cheaper (the only exception being sales tax), and the temperature and humidity are usually the same during the summer.

    We also have better barbeque . . .

    This podcast came up in my listening rotation as Mrs. Tabby and I are packing the last boxes for our move from the Rochester, NY area (Webster) to near Fort Worth, TX. But we have been working on this move for more than six months. But in that six months we have reduced our household contents by about 50%. Maybe we should have invited Lyndsey up. I do not like thinning out 37 years worth of possessions. Nor do I like packing. 

    Many years ago we moved twice in six months – once 3 weeks before our second child was born, and then again when he was 5 months old. 

    But I can’t imagine wanting to live in DC. To each his or her own.
