  1. One big recyling no-no is styrofoam. Nobody will take it. We used to have a business on Studewood and did lots of shipping. We got nice, strong boxes from Houston Aquatics, the pet/fish store on Shepherd. The only problem was.....live fish came in them, so they had styrofoam liners -- a box with a flat lid. I called everywhere trying to recycle these liners. To no avail. I put them out by the street hoping passersby would take/steal them. No luck. I had three 8 ft. stacks of them. Finally, I had a brainstorm. Just before the 4th of July on year, I put them back out with signs that sa
  2. In the last 6 months or so, Brookshire's and HEB have been selling a pre-packaged 93/7 fat to lean ratio ground beef that has a totally different color and texture. It is a deeper pink, almost like it is bruised. The texture is more ahesive. Strange. Has anyone else handled ground beef that seemed odd?
  3. During my party days (nights) I traveled W Gray frequently. I can personally attest to the fact that lots of minutes and even more brain cells have been lost, and never regained, on that street. I do remember ham steaks and fried potatoes and One's A Meal. It was much better going down that coming up, if you know what I mean. It would be such a shame for those "end of the universe" shops to shut down. That's such a funny blurb. And to think I've wasted so many years wondering about the beginning and the end........... Of course, there were no Starbucks back then when the Parlor and Bly
  4. Bo Diddley died today. I worked at Rockefeller's Premier Showcase Nightclub way back when. My office was up on the 3rd floor next to Colleen Fischer, one of the talent buyers. Bo Diddley was scheduled to play that night. About noon, a disreputable looking fellow came to my door and asked to see Don Gomez, who had booked him. Not being musically literate, I asked him who he was. He replied, "I'm mumble mumble mumble." So, I asked him again, and this time I understood "Bo Diddley." So, I sent him down to Don's office. Then I hear this gale of laughter coming from Colleen's office thru
  5. I worked there..........what........27 years ago when it first opened. It was Residence Inn from the beginning. The concept was really good, small units with tiny kitchens or two story studios with fireplace and full kitchen. The front units were occupied while the ones farther back were being built. The construction people were from up north, mostly young, and pretty wild. Crazy times back then. I actually remember some of them.
  6. http://www.google.com/jobs/lunar_job.html Can you imagine WORKING with these people? Lordy, this is funny.
  7. APRIL FOOLS !!!!!!!!!! I guess this wasn't quite as funny as I thought it was. Nobody I sent it to has caught on to the hoax. perhaps this one is better http://www.google.com/technology/pigeonrank.html

  9. On that happy note........I knew a flight attendant who would get even with difficult passengers by taking the pancakes and rubbing them along the rim of the toilet before serving them. Now THAT is EVIL!!!!
  10. ......you're reclining in bed with your laptop propped up on your thighs, you need to go pee, but you keep putting it off to read just "one more thread." ..........I'll be right back.

  12. Great idea. We live in the Piney Woods of North East Texas and have 2 containers with a roof over them. They were both used and delivered up here for about $1500 each. Both 40 ft long. Eventually we will paint them to match. We have 22 acres in the country so nobody to complain about the colors that aren't the same. Anyway, the roof we had done is free standing on poles between the containers. The roof is slanted to the back to accomodate runoff from rain and snow. My husband has two boats parked under there side by side. Inside the containers he has stored lots of cra.....I mean, his
  13. Smokers are addicts. Non-recovering addicts are selfish, self-centered people. Their world is centered around them. Hence, their right to pollute the enovironment at will, with smoke, ashes, and butts. Trying to reason with them is like going to a dry well and expecting to get water. Kudos to you, Dad, for being willing to pick up others' litter. While we are on the subject of smokers.............parents who smoke in the presence of their children are guilty of child abuse. When I see kids trapped in a car with smoke, I want to cry for those poor, innocent little ones. They have no c
  14. So, this mailman brought the mail to this one house at Christmas, when the door opened and the sultry woman of the house was standing there in a sheer nightie. She took his hand and pulled him into the house and into the bedroom. There she took off his clothes, threw him on the bed and had her way with him. After he dressed, she took him into the kitchen where there was a wonderful breakfast waiting for him. He ate with gusto. When he was finished eating, she put a dollar bill beside his plate. Puzzled, he asked what was going on. She replied, "Last night I asked my husband what to give
