That is true. There are Polish people down in San Antonio. In fact, I met one lady who saw my Texas plates who was Polish and said she lived there for 14 years before moving here. Her daughter still lives there.

There are a whole group of Poles apparently in Poth, TX. I just moved from San Antonio in August 08 and had a store there. I had many Poles beginning to come into the store - more and more moving down there! Originally from Chicago and of course there are tons of Poles there (my family being many)!!! Right now living in Warsaw (since August)!

If this is the third one did you go to the other 2? If so, what were they like? I didn't know Houston had a Polish festival at all.

All these Polish festivals always happen thousands of miles away from me. :|

no, i didn't go... i was searching for Polish events in the area one day and i found the info about the festival in Houston... i don't think it's going to be a big deal, but it's worth to go there... i need to get out of Dallas for a weekend anyway...

it'd be great if people from PF show up there...

Moved from: Move to Texas, plenty of sun and work, god fearing folk, I lived there for a while It's like a mini Poland, make your fortunes get a place in Poland to stay on vacation and later retire here if you so wish.

If I wasn't in Poland (retired), I would be in Texas tailgating at the Texans games.

I've thought about it as Texas is a very conservative state. If I were going to move to another state in the US I'd definitely go for like Texas or Arizona or something that region. However, I've never been there so I'd have to at least vacation there first. That would be ideal though like I definitely want to go to Poland to eventually get married and raise a family. I don't want to do that in the US - married perhaps but not raise kids. I'd prefer to marry a Polish girl that's lived in Poland most of her life than the Polish girls that are here in the states. Of course this is generalizing, but the Polish ladies in the US have far different morals and approach to life than the ladies I've met in Poland. I'd like to live in a state where the wages are relatively high but housing cheap since I want to save as much money as possible to take with me to Poland. In Illinois it's ridiculous. On top of already expensive housing, the property taxes are ludicrous. This is why so many people and businesses are moving into Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, etc. It makes sense for a business to relocate 30 miles north or east because they're going to save a fortune on property taxes alone. Rahm Emmanuel increased them 17% this year (for homes/business worth over $250k but lowered it for those under $250k) so like for example the Ford manufacturing plant here in Chicago will pay an extra $2 million a year now. A small hot dog fast food restaurant will on average pay about $10k more. Keep in mind even before this they were already ridiculously high. A friend of mine is an architect and lives in Skokie in maybe a 1,700 sq ft house or so, worth maybe $250-$275k, $300k tops, and he pays $9,900 a year which will be increased by a further 17% now. Lunacy...

I have lived in Cincinnati, OH, northern Kentucky (essentially the same as Cincinnati but more rednecks), southern Wisconsin, and Chicago/Chicago suburbs. I also use to live in Delray Beach, Florida which is a bit north of Fort lauderdale (about 20-30 minutes) and Miamia (about 45mins-1hour) so I'd drive through Atlanta whenever I had to drive to Chicago and back. I didn't like Florida all that much aside from the weather and that it was very easy to find a job at least for me. However, I must say I really like Atlanta when I drove through it in the sense that I found it a pretty city, very nice highways, little traffic, and I found out the homes were very cheap. A 3,500 square foot home in a nice area could be purchased for $400k-$500k depending on siding/brick, quality of materials, age of home, etc. However, the same sized home in a nice suburb in Chicago would go for at least $600k-$700k and if it's remodeled with a nice yard you're looking at $900k plus.

I like southern Wisconsin a lot too but there was very few good paying jobs and I had to commute over an hour to work. I loved the nature though - the outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, boating, offroading, etc. was better than any other place I lived.

Cincinnati and northern Kentucky was the worst place I lived in in terms of quality of life. The housing was very cheap but there was lots of crime. Students from my university would get robbed all the time like walking to the convenience store since it was in a bad neighborhood. The locals would often pretend to be students, crash parties, and walk away with some students' Xbox. Also, there was nothing to do! The bars and clubs all closed down at 2 AM, downtown Cincinnati was a ghost town after 8-9PM on the week days, and there was prostitutes and crackheads galore on like every corner in downtown. It was like a huge ghetto until you get about 20 minutes outside of the city and into neighborhoods like Madeira, Indian Hills, Kenwood, etc. The downtown is actually very pretty especially driving across the bridge from KY into Cinci but it is very dangerous.

By the way, I stumbled across this article:

Divorced husband that wants to have sex with your ex wife? No problem under Islam!

frontpagemag.com/point/216697/maldives-president-rejects-law-banning-husbands-daniel-greenfield

"With the exception of forbidden forms of sexual intercourse, such as during menstrual periods and anal intercourse, it is not permissible under any circumstance for a woman to refrain from it when the husband is in need," Latheef said.

I have Polish background on my Grandpa's Mom's side, my Great-Grandma. The heat here in Texas is bad enough to want to move back to the Midwest. My Mom's Dad Mom.

Besides Polish background, I'm also Italian, Irish, Danish, Scottish probably from the Cochrane side, English from the Carey side, not sure if German or Czech. Probably a few others.
