  1. Because he didn't give out sensitive,secret info to Al Qaidea. If he did then it would most likely be a death sentence.
  2. It's time to start a new biz. Letting the companies that you work for control how much you earn and destiny is not good.
  3. Is there a way or what i can do to create an LLC for my biz w/o spending hundreds of $$? Do i need to get the DBA first? Need some info and advice. Thanks.
  4. With the current real estate market, it is going to be a long time before Telfair starts really selling. Already way over priced, it will get worse for the builders.
  5. Get the book "Grow and Think Rich" by Napolean Hill. I think i still have it as a PDF file. I can send to you if u want.
  6. I'm going to remember him more for helping the indigent and also getting rid of "slime in the ice machine!!"
  7. Hello, What companies do you recommend for auto and home insurance in the Houston area? I am paying like $1,300 annually for home insurance on a $187k house. I am with Allstate right now. It seems pretty high. Thanks.
  8. Why don't you start your own place similar to Hooters? It seems like they have been surviving w/o any competition. Why not open a restaurant similar to theirs? Hey, you probably won't need $500k to start one on your own.
  9. What about alignments? Which place do u recommend?
  10. Mine are also hairline cracks, but i was afraid that it would get bigger, thus wanting to fix it now. No leaks right now, but not a bad idea with liquid nail.
  11. Yes, my house is only 2.5 yrs old. Brought it brand new from First Texas Homes. It is a one-year limited warranty, so expired already. I think most builders only have one year. Ok, which business. I'll see if they can fix the cracks rather than getting a brand new one. Right now, i don't think i can afford a brand new one right now. Thanks.
  12. It is built into the bathroom counter top. Kinda like one big unit. That would cost alot of money. It is made of white marble. Fake white marble i should say. It is pretty common in houses nowdays as far as what i've seen. It looks like this pic. http://www.nhmarble.com/
  13. that will mount and balance tires? Preferably a mom n' pop shop. I have two new tires that i want installed. Thanks.
  14. My house is only 2.5 yrs old and the bathroom sink is already cracking near and around the drain. How do you go about repairing this? I have a feeling it will get worse over time, thus i want to fix it now as best as possible. Thanks.
  15. Was Peter Brown an owner of an architectural firm called "Civic Design" back in the late 90's? His name is familiar.
  16. Sorry about your experience with Tricon homes. They seem very nice looking.
  17. It seems to me that during the past 5-7 yrs, the quality of homes being built is most likely not as good as homes built like 10-15 yrs ago. They are cranking them out nowdays. However, it also depends on the builder. With that being said, i can't recommend my builder(First Texas Homes) because of poor quality and workmanship. I bought a new home from them just over 2.5 yrs ago and now the bathroom sink has cracks near the drain. I was told that the drain was probably tightened too much causing the sink to crack by the builder or whoever their contractor was. Also, the carpets in my living room, hallway,and den are wavy now. I was also told by many that the carpets were most likely not stretched properly when being laid. The walls scratch so easily leaving marks. The previous house that i lived in which was already 7 yrs old at the time didn't have any problems until after i lived in it for 12 years. The sink started to crack around then.I never had any carpet problems especially being wavy or bumpy. I have learned my lesson that you get what you pay for when it comes to selecting a builder.
