  1. Anybody see this on SNL the other night? I do believe that is Houston getting destroyed by giraffes. http://maniacworld.com/truth-about-Giraffes.html
  2. HAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! Yeah, Republicans are never angry and bitter.
  3. HA! I'm not turning on him, I'm criticizing his choice of Rick Warren. I criticized Howard Dean too. Doesn't mean I'm turning on him. Believe me, Obama and Dean aren't going to turn me into a Republican.
  4. I was talking about appeasing Rick Warren's audience not Rick Warren himself.
  5. If only Howard Dean hadn't been so stupid as to not count those delegates. DUH! I'm a Democrat too and agree that Rick Warren is bad choice. Why are we always expected to cater to these right-wing nuts? They never cater to us.
  6. Does anybody else think they are asking too much $$$ for these? http://www.thebrownstonesatcitycentre.com/plans.html I mean, it's the suburbs, next to a giant freeway interchange. I guess they have a lot of square footage? Am I missing something?
  7. Yeah, there's already a sign up announcing Spec's in that location. So, what about the Toys R Us? Anybody know that location's fate?
  8. Yeah, we probably do live near each other. =) I agree about the Kempwood HEB. I used to shop there when it was Albertson's and continued when it became HEB. About a year ago, I started doing my shopping at the HEB on Fountainview after my weekend workouts at Memorial Park. I haven't gone to that Walmart in ages but I remember not liking it because they don't have any fresh food. It's all bagged, ready-to-eat stuff with tons of sodium, etc. Which is OK if you have a big family and not much time I guess. Anyway, I can't wait for the novelty of the new HEB to wear off so it won't be so crowded. ;-) And it's really not that bad if you go during the off hours. I'm just so happy to have a good supermarket in the area with good fresh food and produce. I haven't tried their sushi yet (I'm currently pregnant) but will once junior comes out.
  9. Have you tried anything from their bakery? Everything I've gotten there is DELICIOUS!!
  10. Resurrecting an old topic here. Does anyone know what's going up where the Beatty West building was? I was very sorry to see this one go. I had hopes someone could bring it back. I know it was considered run-of-the-mill ugly by many but I kind of liked it. (Without all that banner crap wrapped around it.) Please don't say they're building more lofts/condos. I think I'm just too sentimental to live here. HAA!

    Arne's is CLOSED?? Oh no! Yeah, I agree - Party Boy isn't as good.
  12. Businessman and developer Oscar Holcombe (1888-1968) and his wife Mary hired Houston architect L.W. Lindsay to design this home. Completed in 1925, it featured gardens designed by landscape architect Herbert L. Skogland. Outstanding features of the Tudor revival style house include a gabled and hipped roofscape, decorative half-timbering, a bay window, an elaborate chimney, and an entry portico with decorative brickwork. Holcombe, who served eleven nonconsecutive terms as mayor of Houston between 1921 and 1957, continued to live here until his death.
