In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

Everybody has been extrememely kind and most people think we are on holiday. They didn't attempt too many new food ideas at our parties--like their potaytoes!

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Most people here work in the city except for pubs, restaurants and stores plus marine industry.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

Boating is huge here in Crosshaven. Haven't been invited to socialize much with others, but we invited neighbors to our parties.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

Make sure your US TV is PALS accessible before bringing it. We were told by electronic company in US we could convert but we can't(TV is too old-bought it in 2003). I would have brought more DVD's to watch as cable movie channel is expensive. But also have to have something to play it on as the DVD system here is regional. Told not to bring snow shovel...but need a scraper for car. First big snow in years I am told. Bring transformers if bringing any US electrical. Have been told it will blow up, but so far so good. Just remember things are cheaper in US than here. I think a huge piece is whether you are moving temporairily or permanently.
