"Now, if they had a domestic House Hunters - Texas Edition show whereby the couple is choosin' over cookie-cutter houses in the Dallas suburbs of Plano vs. Richardson.....both within a block of a 7-Eleven, a Panetta Bread, five Starbucks, an 5-minute drive to a Super WalMart, and a fine, fine school district....well, the ratings probably would be so high. "

I must be takes me 7 minutes if I catch the lights to get to the Walmart Super Center, and I don't even know if we have a Panetta Bread plae. We got Starbucks but the nearest one is likely 9 miles away. But I got a Dunkin Donuts within walking distance. Seven eleven is a good half mile walk......but five minutes in the car. Right next to the Boston Market.

Of course, you'd have to choose between Frisco, Allen, McKinney.....and Plano - the 'established' suburb. Richardson is so 1980s......

or you could 'move on up' to Park Cities or University Heights....if you got a few spare million....

But wait...maybe you'd want a 'horsey ranchette' - 2 acres where you can keep a horse? or a bunch of barking dogs?
