  1. Past hour
  2. Block 436 & 437 (Formerly Milhaus Midtown)

    The other block has a chain-link fence around it as of yesterday.
  3. Today
  4. I think the Houston Farmer's Market is a bad name from a Marketing perspective. Houston is a huge sprawling place so "Houston Farmer's Market" lacks specificity. We're already seeing lost tourists in the Heights on Saturday mornings stopping to ask directions to "the farmer's market" that they've heard about, but they don't know which of the many different one's they're really looking for. It could be Canino's or many times it's one of the many small collections of individuals at places like Onion Creek, etc. Retaining Airline or Canino's in the name would help them stand out from the rest.

  10. The Funniest Movie Scene Ever

    What is it? It was blocked by Youtube.
  11. Writing Utensils (Pens, Pencils, etc.)

    I use Pilot fountain pen.
  12. Borden ammonia explosion segment from 1983

    When I was a little girl I would go with one of my three older siblings to get ice cream cones at the ice cream parlor. They were 6, 9 & 10 yrs older. They had a double cone that you could get a quadruple scoop ice cream. We named the oldest Little Lotta because she'd order her quadruples. You couldn't see her face when she worked on that monster.

  14. 1111 Rusk: Texaco Building Renovation

    This photo clusters three of our newest and soon to be newest apartment and condo towers. Both Texaco and Southwest Life, repurposed, and the other Catalyst, designed by local architects Ziegler Cooper. I remember when I first started following this site there were always cries of dismay at yet another important structure biting the dust for a new parking garage or office building. In the last five years we have seen a complete turn around in the developers mindset. An amazing number of downtown structures have been repurposed into hotels, office buildings, restaurants and city services. Obviously a major seed change that I think we need to recognize and appreciate, while continuing to fight for more.

  17. I just watched a program on Channel 8 Monday night about the 50's & 60's laws & then Ronald Reagan's ghastly reasoning for the epidemic & his total disdain. Kind of a, they're reaping what they sow attitude. Kind of like what we're hearing from the guy in DC. I can't even say his name without having a case of the Coniption Fits. SMDH.

    Hedge fund provides $105 million for new Frisco hotel Project Location
  19. Thought you wanted to know about the restaurants on Dyna in the 1980s? I offered to help earlier in the thread. There's never been an IHOP on Dyna. There's a Denny's down I-45 at Aldine-Bender.
  20. I'm so sorry, just saw your query. Our company was not involved in the actual moving of the old houses. My husband, who is 81 and finally retired had a masonry business in Houston, Pearland & Manvel. We did the actual repairs to the moved home, including homes being restored for historical marker consideration. He'd been in business so long he had connections with the brick manufacturers & stone quarries who could match the original. You would be better off contacting either Keith Cherry or the other fellow listed on the website. Good luck. They are the very best in town!

    PPG headed to Flower Mound with new distribution center Project Location
  22. Our main thoroughfare is FM1128 (Masters Rd). It was dirt road when my husband moved to this property. It is still a 2 lane road, but it's the back road shortcut for Medical Center, Midtown and beyond. It is also the favorite of bicyclers on weekends. None of the above is a bother. I just have one itch to scratch. It is a very young adult male on a Japanese motorcycle that apparently only has 2 notches on the speedometer. Stop & 120 mph. You literally don't hear him coming until he's here. It sounds exactly like a Formula1 Ferrari. I wasn't going to do anything about it, I'd mulled it over, his business, none of mine, etc. But I've decided to do the correct thing & speak to someone at the police department. I am saving his life, not tattling. I would hope a stranger would do the same for my children. With all the unbelievable lunacy coming from the shining house in the East, I'm not going to change who I am as a person. That is a mother, wife, daughter, sister & good citizen of this country. Nobody will make me cower. Nobody.
  23. This shopping center had a fire a few days ago. Does this effect the planned tower at all?

  25. Pasadena hospital

    Southmore Hospital was located on a street named Southmore. The hospital closed in 1999, it was sold to HCA who bought it and immediately closed it (they didn't want the competition). Pasadena General Hospital was located on Pasadena Blvd. I believe that street was once named Tatar. Pasadena General was renamed once or twice. I don't know if it has closed or not. Red Bluff Hospital was located near the intersection of Red Bluff and Pasadena Blvd. I don't remember when it closed.
  26. Pasadena hospital

    Was this hospital also known as Southmore Hospital (or Southmore General) in 1970? That's where I was born - I was looking at my birth certificate, and the attendant's signature (there was no printing, type or hand, displayed) - a person named M. A. Richardson. It seems like it has been closed for a while (due to hauntings - from what I have heard from family members) and bought, sold and renamed a few times ... My gosh, reading all of the previous comments, how scandalous ... very wild, knowing that's where I was born, oh my goodness
