Looks like Toledo will be a rest stop that's just long enough for me to cool my heels on on PA unemployment and take some review math classes. Michelle has had a very positive conversation with a PI staring up a new lab at UCLA. We could be in LA as soon as next summer. This pleases me on a number of levels. Toledo is a former mid size city that's shrunk to the level of large town. Ann Arbor is probably bigger and has a more varied economy. LA is a self contained world economy. Granted it has the same problem as the world's economy. Still there's way more going on that two overly educated people can latch onto there. Then there's the weather aspect. As long as we live above the climate change high tide line, we'll be comfy throughout the year. No Philly humidity. No Midwestern winter. I'm liking all that!
