  1. Ditto, I always look at new buildings with a "wonder how that will look in 10 or 20 years." I mean, most of that midtown development is going to look just awful in just a few years I think. Some of those materials don't do well in our climate...yuk! Hardi-plank is a great product though and does just fine.
  2. I came out because I had a tiny rainbow flag sticker on the license plate of my car back in 1995....my Dad saw it and said "Do you support these people??" and had this awful look on his face, kind of like this and I was speechless. Shortly after, my Mom called to have "the talk." I was 18 and no longer living at home, but she of course wanted to know what the hell was going on. I must say that at first it was horrible and very sad the way my parents reacted. I went in the Navy shortly after and receieved 10 page TYPED letters from my Dad about how I was going to hell, etc... They thought it was a phase, but turns out the bible throwing days were a phase. I have been with my partner for close to 10 years now. They love her dearly and are no longer hateful or homophobic since 1999. Happy times. Moral of the story, be true yourself (but hold the PDA please, if we wanted to see that we would watch Skinimax after 11pm). If my parents can come around anyone can.
  3. I am a lesbian and needless to say I have MANY gay and lesbian friends. I have offered to have a child for my best friend who is a gay man (if and when he is ever ready). He would only have to cover the medical bills...which is considerable, but I would not charge him and his partner a fee of my own. This is an option that some gay men do have with their lesbian friends, especially those with lesbian friends under 40. I have known this guy for almost 20 years though. I would not do it for just any person.
  4. This is a very cool thread. I absolutely love all the pics AND I love how you can come on here with "long shots" for questions and get answers. It is something to see the Hotel Cotton. How times change.
  5. I can't find anything on Google. There must have been a few old large homes out there. I work with a guy that has told me before this thread that his family used to own a very large old custom house built way back when, that was on several acres of land. The man that built it left it to my co-worker's grandmother because she helped take care of him when he was sick. There was some freaky haunted stuff at this particular place too. It was torn down as well. The location of the home was further east, I-10/Dell Dale.
  6. Church's Chicken! HA! LOL!!!!! I was born and raised in Pasadena. I happen to like the new logo, but the one with the chemical plant background has a sentimental value to me.
  7. ABSOLUTELY! That is why I have always had to live in the suburbs and actually prefer it. Houston's suburbs offer affordable, new housing. Of course this is all hardi-plank, no stucco, stone or brick and you have to have a DD when you go bar hoping, but that is not an issue for me. This is a first time buyer type neighborhood, if anyone is interested please let me know.
  8. Woah! Interesting stuff! Keep this thread alive! I am getting on google!!!!!!

  10. Very, very cool post!! I am super excited about visiting this place. Yay!!!!! Thanks! Thank you for the pics Terrbo !!
  11. I know!!! Gosh, what is wrong with these people! If they tear down the landmarks, I vow to not ever do business or frequent any part of the new development. I can't even believe we have to discuss these issues, it should not BE an issue. Ok...I am off the soapbox now
  12. Ummm hum...and chile con queso is totally gringo... Like you say, the flour tortillas are almost no where to be found in Mexico. They cater to us gringas y gringos here. I love Mexican Food/Tex-Mex, whatever. Love it!!
  13. Thank you for this post. I love all the info and the pics. Great job!
  14. Great topic! I love this stuff. My friends moved over near Rice Military (West End) and bought one of those mcmansions and there are still old concerete street markers over there. The construction crews don't usually have much care and concern about them though. I hope the city can find it in their heart (budget) to maintain and protect more of our heritage.
  15. Pancho's started in the 60's. My mother in law said she started taking her son to the Almeda Mall area location when he was a baby in the early 70s... The guy is 38 now and the same lady still works there as a waitress. I used to go to the Pasadena Plaza location a lot as a kid. I loved that place! I know it is not REAL mexican food, but I usually go once every year or so. Raise the flag!
  16. June 22, 2007, 8:02AM Plan offered to save 2 city icons Panel suggests listing endangered River Oaks and Alabama sites as landmarks By MIKE SNYDER Copyright 2007 Houston Chronicle http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/4911051.html I am a fool for thinking that Weingarten will take this into consideration, but I can still hope so. It would just be disgusting and sick if they tore down these landmarks or OSW, etc...
  17. I just moved back to the southeast side from Tomball. In 2006, TXDOT and HCTRA had meetings in Tomball with citizens on various dates about the obvious expansion of SH 249, as well as making parts of it a toll road. http://www.txdot.gov/news/candidate_toll_projects.pdf http://www.txdot.gov/news/candidate_toll_projects.pdf
  18. The x-wife still lives in the area, according to research I did last year. I was able to pinpoint her because of the marriage records on HCTX. She remarried after O'Bryan and was under that name (which I do not recall now). The neighborhood behind Parktown is where she lives...between Red Bluff and Pasadena Blvd. If I was her I think I would have moved further away...that is just so creepy.
  19. Thank you so much! Apparently the old place is for lease. The interior picture you have makes me want to see the rest of it! I hope that it stays original.
  20. Thanks for the pic. Is that an old childs toy in the ground in the yard?? How retro.
