  1. Central Library Renovation

    Just what all of the bums at the library need.
  2. Did we ever have Chi Chi's Mexican Restaurants?

    Yes, the former Wok Bo building was originally a Chi Chi. I ate there many times.
  3. New HAIF front

    Ok - Constructive Criticism is what you want. Well here goes. There is too much wasted, open space on the new home page. I like how things move when the cursor goes over the active areas. The font is hard to read on "Recent Updates", "List of Buildings by Neighborhood", etc. It is not at all clear as to how to get to the Forums page. You have to move the cursor over each of the options and say to yourself "well, lets try 'many more posts' and see what happens" I could go on, but I am tired. As I said earlier. Keep working on it.
  4. New HAIF front

    Actually I think that the new format sucks, but keep working on it. It can only get better.
  5. Local news media political views?

    While this website may exist on a higher level, politics in this country is mostly played out in the sewer.
  6. Local news media political views?

    I don't know about those guys but I do know that it is time to flush the Obama turd down the drain.
  7. Wow, a Steam Cracker. Just what in the hell is that? Back in Ireland we have still have steam TV's, but a cracker. I think that we have moved on to Nuclear Crackers.
  8. For me this whole argument is Bullcrap. Barrier islands move. That is a simple fact that cannot be changed. Anyone that buys properties on something that is continually moveing, eroding, changing shape should take all risk for losing their property to a storm. I say park your beach blanket on any sandy area you like and bring on the cops.
  9. Lufthansa A380 service coming to Houston

    Only $17,458 round trip in First Class. That is $13.86 for each minute. I'll take two, Please.
  10. Old Plantation Near Polk and S. Wayside

    Edward F. Simms of Kentucky came to Houston about 1901 and made his fortune at Spindletop. In 1912 he decided to build a Mansion on his newly purchased 210 acre estate, which he called Wayside. His estate was located between Polk on the north, the original Houston Country Club Golf Course site (1908 – 1956) on the east, Yates Gulley on the west and Lawndale on the south.
  11. Go to Google Earth and you can see the area in various images from 1945-2012. In 1945 it looks like the stadium area was railroad yards.
  12. Destroying freeways

    Atlanta has a similar population as Houston? They only have about 450,000 living there. Orlando has a similar population as Houston? Thye only have about 250,000 living there. Houston has 2-3 Million, by the way.
  13. Spirit Airlines Flying From Houston in September, 2012

    Spirit has to be the absolute worst airline. I will never fly with them.
  14. 10 cool things about Houston in the 1980s

    What ever happened to the Urban Animals? Are they bankers and stock traders now? Did they work at Enron?
  15. Yeah, I remember the place.
