Welcome to YesCity, Texas, where a Big, Fat Everything Burger includes avocado and bacon

I'm becoming more familiar with the area around my new residence here in San Antonio, or YesCity, Texas. I need to get out and assimilate in the community.

A tasty burger might even be on the agenda soon. This is the first city I've ever been in where you can purchase both a Whataburger and an In-N-Out Burger. Those are both delicious sandwiches that I should enjoy in moderation, because I've heard they contain plenty of wonderful calories. A big, fat everything burger here apparently includes avocado and bacon.

San Antonio has a minor league baseball team affiliated with the San Diego Padres I probably should visit soon for a good time. They call the team the San Antonio Missions. There are cool places along the River Walk to see and enjoy as well. They even have an NBA team called the San Antonio Spurs I probably should check out again. They've been pretty successful. It seems like they've won championships as often as the New England Patriots.

And don't worry. Unlike Kawhi Leonard, I'm an easy man to read. All you have to do is visit PinnacleCreative.net for everything you need to know. I'll keep you posted here. In a world literally shot-through with misinformation and hoaxes, it's nice that we can return here to the blog and my Twitter for some truth from time to time.

I noticed on a concert calendar that Gary Numan and The Crystal Method are both scheduled to visit the city in the coming months. I'm looking for opportunities to get out and about, so I'll keep my eyes open. If you have any suggestions, feel free to let me know.

My move to San Antonio complete, getting situated in a new home city

Greetings to you from my new home city of San Antonio, Texas. I'm happy to have things getting into a routine as I become situated here.

I'm not completely unfamiliar with San Antonio. As those of you who have followed me over the years know, I lived in an extended stay hotel here about five years ago for a number of months, working for a Houston-area electronics company that installed flat-screen televisions and home theater systems. I visited San Antonio homes every day and was impressed with not only the people here but all the city has to offer. This is a fantastic town, and I know I'll enjoy living here.

Without giving out too many details here about my specific location, I'm once again on the west side of town right off of Interstate 10 (very close to where I lived in San Antonio previously). I spent this past week driving around town to visit a number of locations, sourcing products for my home business. I look forward to continuing that here.

I wasn't aware that this city is now considered one of the 10 largest in the country, even bigger than Dallas by comparison of population. Only Houston is larger in the state of Texas.

Leaving Houston was a bittersweet decision, but it was the right decision. I was born there and will always love the place, but in the past decade or so it has felt like I was always waiting on an eventuality that never came to pass. In short, Houston has felt like NoCity, Texas. The disappointing thing is that the correct answer was always "yes," and I was always surrounded by "no" there. That gets old (and frustrating).

I'm close enough to drive over to Houston for a visit occasionally, but this is a permanent change of address.

Having said that, if the Princess is out there somewhere reading this you can come anytime for a visit. Park anywhere you can find a spot.
