  1. Have you always had the charge for the regional water authority? Does that have something to do with the switch from ground to surface water?
  2. Will all of you darned kids PLEASE get off of my interlawn!!! Seriously though, I have a hard time getting too nostalgic about these things mainly because there are very few on that list that I would want to do with my daughter that I feel like I can't. I guess catching fireflies as I don't really see them anymore...
  3. I'm in MUD 364 managed by the same company. I believe the effect you are seeing on your bill is due to the tiered system of the water rates. Once your water usage reaches a certain level, you are charged a higher rate for each gallon you use. So you probably used more due to the drought, and this was exponentially reflected in your bill as the rate increased along with the increased usage.
  4. I don't know about the new location, but the one off 1960 and 290 (is Wortham the cross street?) is the best bar in NW Houston that I have been to, and maybe the best suburban bar in general. The live music, numerous TVs, great service, and good clientele put it over the top. Also, in the summer evenings the shaded deck is really surprisingly nice. Some nights that I have been it has been quite crowded, but I think that even kind of adds to the atmosphere, kind of gives a urban pub vibe. Having Texadelphia right next to it for a late night snack doesn't suck either. Any time I have friends visiting I take them here, and have not been disappointed, so I would recommend trying the new locale if it is closer to you.
  5. You guys are definitely in the easier bracket, especially now that CSU Fullerton is out. They kind of put all the pitching in the other bracket with UT, ASU, and UNC. UT is gonna have a tough time with ASU today and has to play better than they did against Southern Miss. I think the winner of tonight's game will face LSU in the title game, not sure who wins two out of three there, might depend on how the pitching sets up for either ASU or UT...
  6. Sign from Hempstead Highway says warehouse and office space...
  7. No doubt, the last one did it....one of the coolest cities in the US and some great pictures Chamo...
  8. Well, I think the building in first picture (far left) is in Caracas Venezuela, along with the gothic cathedral in the second set, so I think Chamo is the winner....waiting for confirmation....
  9. I'm gonna say Lima... Second guess Bogota....
  10. IF there was an organized effort by the residents of the Cypress, Klein, and Champions areas outside 1960 to incorporate I think that would be a great thing. The deal with the Woodlands has certainly set a precedent, but that is going to take a lot of work and organization from local residents and I am not sure the will is there, but I sure wish it were. I realize there is a big difference from 750,000 to 450,000 or whatever the real number is, but either way that would be considered a large city, and would be ranked what, 6th or 7th in the state???
  11. ABC 13 (aka the scare mongers) showed our area received around 11 inches in 24 hrs. That is a ton of rain. No one in Coles or Longwood flooded to my knowledge, but Jarvis was impassable between Barker-Cypress and Telge.
  12. It was definitely one of the worst tournaments in recent memory. I can think of only a few memorable shots off the top of my head, Siena's point guard hitting the three against OSU, Reynolds' shot against Pitt... There was really only one great night where I really felt the madness, when Siena-OSU and Wisc-FSU were in OT at the same time.
  13. In a 10 person bracket pool with no money on the line on an anonymous internet forum? I think I will manage to sleep tonight... In my other pool I got beat by a guy who is a t-shirt Duke and OU fan, now that one stings a little...
  14. Haven't heard about the new place, but sure do miss Sam's Roadhouse...used to really enjoy going there for crawfish, horseshoes, and college bball.
  15. I would say dominating for a ten year period ten years ago pales in comparison to what USC has done, but that is a conversation for another thread...though a college baseball thread would get even less interest than this one...
  16. Nova got away with it because they only played three games there this year. I have heard the magic number of games is like ten, but not sure. Of course they knew it was a tournament host this year and that is why they only played three. And a little off topic, but is LSU really a dominant college baseball program? I mean maybe 10-20 years ago when they won all the 5 in their history...I would say USC has it for baseball as well with Texas a fairly distant second, though we have had more recent success.
  17. Well, it looks like I have locked up last place...oh well, tough year for my bracket but it was fun while it lasted. I think I will be pulling for Villanova to win it all from here on out, I like the way Reynolds plays. I also like Izzo and Michigan State, so here's to a good FF and can't wait to see the regional back in H-town in 2010.
  18. Memphis-Mizzou might be a great warm up too... Oh, and I will add the obligatory "Texas got robbed" And before anyone says anything I know we had too many turnovers and missed too many free-throws (we have no one to blame but ourselves), but those calls at the end of the game (especially the foul under the basket on Damian James called by the BACK JUDGE were bull....to put it mildly.
  19. Miss St. and Clemson really burned me yesterday, as I had them each winning two games...Lots of BBall left though, it is a marathon, not a sprint. The first two rounds usually don't bother me too much, except that the last few years my wife has picked brackets (she knows nothing about BBall) and kicks my ass. Last year she nailed the championship game and would have won it all if Collins didn't hit the three for KU, she even predicted the final score if that three doesn't drop...Now all I hear about is how much better she is a Bracketology than I am...and it's kinda true.
  20. I personally love to watch the game and eat crawfish, and Sam's Boat is pretty good for that but outside your area unless there is one in Pearland... Edit: Turns out there is...Link
  21. I have yet to find a good "go to" sports bar inside the loop either, especially with decent food. Maybe try the typical buffalo wild wings in Midtown or Rice Village. You could also try front porch in Midtown, since it is really nice outside this week. Oh, and I forgot Two-Rows in Rice Village as well. But of these three I would only call BW3's a real "sports bar".
  22. Done. I also signed up for the ESPN league...some tough choices to make in this tournament. I feel like many of the 2-6 teams are overrated, but couldn't pick too many upsets. Also, I feel like Louisville and NC are very beatable, but couldn't get them out as early as I thought I would, if that makes sense. Should be a lot of fun!!!
  23. Well...Penn St. didn't get in, but tell me how you feel about Zona???
  24. If you are referring to my post and that is all you took from it, maybe you should read it again...And yes, uninsured illegal immigrants are a huge burden on our healthcare system and in our emergency rooms, especially here in Texas. I will agree that the obscene profits of the pharmaceutical industry stand out, and the whole doctor-rep relationship is a little suspect, but I think that could be solved with reform, rather than overhauling the entire system.
