      friend who just finished her Master's in Boston.  Her apartment cost more than her parents' and our own mortgages together - and we are all professionals.  At least she had a good scholarship to help with school and didn't have a car.

      Son #1 moved to Clear Lake in January.  His buddies there helped him find a convenient, reasonably affordable, but safe apartment.  At least he's still driving his 2001 vehicle.   ;)
