  2. Dreams and love are just words - until you decide to experience them.

  3. Properly made, leftover chili gets better and better every day until the fourth day, at which point it begins its slow decline.

  4. If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music ever written, how many other things are we missing?

  5. Remember the love note.

  6. Federal Appeals Court Rules California’s Ban on Gay Marriage is Unconstitutional.

  15. Truth? A great Bostonian:"Newt Gingrich may be a hypocrite, but we're living in the Age of the Hypocrite. We have billionaires who justify the fleecing of the middle class with calls for shared sacrifice. We have presidential candidates who sign pledges to do the will of Grover Norquist rather than the will of the people who elect them. We have an endless parade of family-values-spouting, bible-thumping politicians who are caught with their pants down. Who better to reign over these times th...

  19. "De-friending" is not something a man should worry himself about doing or being done to him

  20. Seventeen members of Michael Jackson's family were at the courtroom for the reading of the verdict. Where were these seventeen "family" members while Michael was sleeping with boys and morphing himself, over many years, into a white "transexual" or while he lay in his bed strung-out on drugs. Guilty! IMO.

  21. No matter how greasy the pizza is, you can't blot it with a paper towel and expect to be taken seriously.

  22. I have a rather sad Fiesta in my hood, good enough for staples, so I take the train to Wheeler Fiesta sometimes. I've not been to the one farther South. Is the selection that much better? The international selection is what I am most interested in.
  23. I am a tad too old to be waiting on an amusement park anywhere. I just had an opinion to state. As I stated none of those cities have basically zero zoning. Also, as I clearly stated, if it were going to be a mega Disney, a le' Orlando and Orange County then THAT will be the destination, period. Not one of your "far N,E,S,W Houston's" are even in Harris county. Yes they may be part of our metro, it is not Houston. I agree whole heartily that The Galleria, selling un-needed trinkets galore, justifies the land cost. I am not educated enough to understand where tax dollars from any of those three projects directly benefits Houston, so perhaps I can be enlightened. There is way too much land within the Belt (East side comes to mind) sitting 'wasting away' IMO
  24. Very few (perhaps like zero) have the zoning laws nor the amount of empty land that Houston has within her core. I really don't consider any of these options 'close' to Houston, nor of the the scale that a city of our size should be able to support. Denver may not be as large, but she is way more dense and she built one DOWNTOWN on reclaimed land. If we were to build a Walt Disney World type park, then the proximity to Houston would be mute. The park itself would be the destination point. Downtown to Kemah (tiny park) 35 miles. Downtown to Galveston (small park) 51 miles Downtown to New Caney (different theme entirely) 31 miles. And again, none of these would be a draw TO Houston. With the Astrodome incorporated into the old Astroworld turf and acquiring a bit more land (though apts have taken most), that could help Houston proper. IMO
