Quote from: Ecurb Noselrub on January 06, 2023, 08:45:28 PMMy wife and I are relocating to New England in July and August to escape the Texas heat/humidity. We have rented Airbnbs in Montpelier, Vermont for July and Camden, Maine for most of August. Since I still suffer the indignity of working for a living, I will be on my computer 5 days a week. My employer just approved it, so I am good to go. It will be an adventure, of sorts. Not sure what we will do with our house in Texas while we are gone, but I suspect we will just let the kids/grandkids use and care for it.

Quebec is very French. So French that the Quebec hierarchy once tried to secede from Canada so that they could make the French language obligatory in their province.
