  1. Your link could NOT have been a better portrait of American greed. The only Police officer who isn't overweight would be the African American gal. This is a must-repost. Thanks a million.
  2. As palavras são novasAs palavras são novas: nascem quandoNo ar as projectamos em cristaisDe macias ou duras ressonânciasSomos iguais aos deuses, inventandoNa solidão do mundo estes sinaisComo pontes que arcam as distâncias.

  3. I try, I really do try to enjoy TV. What am I to do, when a show such as CSI still hasn't learned where light switches are located yet ALWAYS solve the crime! I so understand why my books are screaming my name. "Hey Idiot, over here!!!"

  4. The visit home to Port Arthur for the reunion did not achieve what Joplin had hoped, and once again she left town feeling rejected and unloved.

  5. Great! Now if Houston would get a 'Good Times' Hamburger I'll be set. Also an inexpensive Japanese restaurant, that serves a good Chicken Yakisoba I'll be in Paradise.
  6. More fantastic ideas. http://m.youtube.com/#/profile?user=ikeamalaysia&v=32Qgv7LGxrw&view=videos http://m.youtube.com/#/profile?user=ikeamalaysia&v=0EkyCPqbnV0&view=videos
  7. Thanks for that info. I too can walk to downtown. I'm so seldom in le' tunnel, I wasn't aware there was a Chix Filet down there.
  8. There is also a new one at the NE corner of Crosstimbers and 45.
  9. A man knocked at his Bedouin friend’s door to ask him a favor:“I want you to lend me four thousand dinars because I have a debt to pay. Can you do that for me?”The friend asked his wife to gather together everything they had of value, but even so it was not enough. They had to go out and borrow money from the neighbors until they managed to get the full amount.When the man left, the woman noticed that her husband was crying.“Why are you sad? Now that we’ve got ourselves in debt with our n...

  10. If anyone needs to "ask" if we are friends, then I suspect we must not be.

  11. "Erasure's current tour, "Tomorrow's World Tour," promoting their new album, is an absolute delight! Whether you've seen them 20 times or never before, Erasure has hit the perfect note with their latest performance. They have provided the ultimate blend of songs, seamlessly combining tracks from the new album with some of their more well known hits from the last 25 years. This is not simply a promotion of their latest album, but rather a celebration of their amazing catalog of songs. And of c...

  12. There's a place in the sunFor anyone who has the will to chase oneAnd I think I've found mineOh yes, I do believe I have found mine.

      Are we talking about cats?

  13. Yea, my neighbor the cop and I both received this same ticket a couple years ago on Roseland two blocks South of Richmond. I tried fighting it as there wasn't any signage. It didn't help, but I painted a line at 30' and a big-ass no parking to..... right on the curb to help the next "victim." I should go by there and see if it's still legible.
  14. Nobody is perfect, until you fall in love with them. :)

    1. LTAWACS


      Strange. Then I guess everyone is in love with me. :)

  15. Those who criticize the current generation forget who raised it!

    1. TheNiche


      False. It is in fact possible to criticize the "current generation", whomever they are, and also remember whomever were previously their legal guardians.

  16. Taqueria, Cucina, Bistro, Ristorante, Chaucer Street, Jacinto City, Plaza, etc. Last time I was in New Orleans, there were at least two French spellings of names. We've been lexical borrowing for centuries.
  17. Question. Does or has any one lived in this type of condo, with a ground floor restaurant. Are there odors in your apt or balcony? I realize the vent hood would be placed on the rooftop of course. I would hope by code at least those built now.
  18. I believe that once you put vodka in a martini, it is no longer a martini.

      James Bond would disagree!

      Touché on the name being bastardized. lol

      A variation called the James Bond Martini:

      ‘A dry Martini,’ he said. ‘One. In a deep champagne goblet.’ 

      ‘Oui, Monsieur.’ 

      ‘Just a moment. Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large slice of lemon-peel. Got it?’

       I  just refer to these and the other 1, 374 variations of this this sort of drink, a shot. It would be like  Cerebral Hemorr...

  19. I wasn't feeling special, not in the least. I appreciate well written rants, yours are among the livelier postings. In general they tend to be straight up. I just believe your posting to my living choices were bordering on gormless.
  20. I just ran across this (old) post. I voted historical. I think an Aguarium would be a great idea. The one Downtown is not an Aguarium, that one should be ripped out at once or turned into a full kiddy amusement park, not the wanna' be it is now. The locale would be a great, non local, visitor "draw" as the Dome and World were, once upon a time.
