  1. I like the Free Brooks app alright. The inital app is a couple of dollars and then you have access to over a thousand titles unlimited for free. Most are pre-1930. A lot of classic stuff. The one thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't provide book summaries. While browsing the books, you only get the author and title, so you have to go online for further info on the book which is really inconvenient. I like the mystery genre and I downloaded a book, was well into it and then realized it was going to be about some stolen jewels which doesn't intrigue me at all, so I didn't care to finish it. I don't like the lack of summaries at all.

  2. I have a pygmy date palm that got burned in the Dec. freeze, but I think they have a hardiness of 20 degrees so it should be fine. I also planted a queen palm over the summer and it still looks ok. I think they also have a hardiness of about 20. They're both planted next to a fence, if that matters. Now my papaya, that should do dandy.

    I'm ready for this artic front. I'm ready for it to come, do its thing and hopefully get out. I just want it to be over with. I'd so love to see next week's forecast and it be nothing but days above 65 and sunny. I'd go outside and roll around on the ground, cat poop and all. It's funny because merely months anything below 70 I considered freezing. Now 60 looks downright toasty.

  3. A change in scenery isnt so bad. I've enjoyed these colder days.(for lack of a better word) Not what we usually expect in a Houston winter. And, hey, it could be worse, we could be Dallas!!ohmy.gif

    Not this change of scenery. I don't enjoy looking outside and seeing the deadness. I get depressed. Anywhere I go I have to stay indoors because I can't tolerate the cold. In order to be comfortable I almost have to be hot. I like the heat. Where's the relief? I can't take this much longer.

  4. I have a relatively new iPod touch (which is basically iPhone w/o the phone) and I was a bit disappointed because there's no HAIF app. Sure, I suppose I could type thehaif.com into Safari, but where's the fun in that? There needs to be an app for the iPhone that basically is a free app that takes you to the HAIF but optimized for HAIF performance (I find the mobile version of HAIF to limiting in a few ways). What say you?

    I do that too, but this site is so hard to navigate that way that I don't even bother. I still like the old forum better.
  5. Thanks for all the information. Sounds great! I still can't help to be skeptical, but the details are appreciated. :)

    All right everyone,

    Pangea (signature attraction - a family thrill ride - a submarine-type voyage into watery depths uncovered during the construction of the park - w/ sea monsters attacking, etc.)

    That sounds scary. I was always afraid of the "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" ride at Disney World.

  6. That's more like it. :)

    I second that. People always talk about how the heat drains them. It's the cold that does it to me. This cold zaps my energy completely.

    I'll agree the snow was pretty, but after couple of hours the novelty had completely worn off. I could never imagine living in this for months on end.

  7. I know I have stopped posting so much on HAIF for a couple of reasons...

    4. Not as interested in topics discussed (see reason 3). I used to read almost all the threads.

    6. More apathetic

    Me too. More so #6. A lot of things are proposed and nothing comes of it. I understand some of it is because of the times, but I'm getting to where I don't care anymore. I'm losing interest.

  8. If anyone remembers Cynthia Hunt from channel 2 news and later from the Chris Baker radio show, she's a contestant tonight on some reality show on SoapNet called "Holidate" in which two women switch cities and dating scenes with each other. I'd never heard of it until yesterday and it looks like garbage, but here's the promo if you're interested:

  9. Some of these:


    ...in yogurt. YUM! ... but DO NOT eat the grape-nuts by themselves. "You'll knock your teeth out." Said one of my fellow LA AFB USAF commissary Compton-area grocery baggers in 1990... who had no teeth. I will never forget that.

    I used to eat Grape Nuts dry because I hate milk and you do have to be careful, but they're good dry. Except I haven't eaten them in years. Once I got sick and threw up Grape Nuts. The sight of it turned me off to them. The Grape Nuts didn't make me sick, they just happened to be what came up.

  10. Sweet Potato fries (homemade). I will either salt and pepper them, or sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg on them if I feel like something sweeter.

    I love making sweet potato chips in the oven. Slice them really thin, spread onto a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray, drizzle with a little olive oil, sprinkle on a little sea salt and ground pepper. Bake until crispy. They're so good.

  11. I'm still skeptical about the thing as I am with anything lately. I'm not excited about it, just a tad hopefull. When/if they break ground and when I see some progress and they don't decide to scale it down, then I'll be excited. The renderings look almost too good to be true. The only thing I don't really care for is the snowy portion. I hate snow whether it's real or artificial. Especially outdoor fake snow. There's a water park at Disney with fake outdoor snow as part of the landscape/theme. I've never been, but I don't like it just from what I've seen.
