  1. My wife and I recently visited the Air Terminal, and it was a great trip. I've got about 90 pictures up here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mrbill/sets/72157602033598909/ Some samples attached.
  2. Look west! We moved to Houston just a little over a year ago (from Austin) and found a neighborhood (Tanglewilde) that's perfect for us.

  5. No idea if its still available, but I just emailed you.
  6. Tanglewilde. I'm near Westheimer/Gessner (77063).
  7. My wife and I recently relocated to Houston from Austin, and love it. We were lucky enough to find exactly what we were looking for in a home - a nice "fifties house" (built in 1958) that was updated enough for our needs. While going through the house after purchase, I came across a medallion screwed to the wall of the garage, and painted over. I got it off the wall and scrubbed it clean, giving the pictures you see. After a bit of research, I found the following: To keep demand high, the electrical industry launched the Live Better Electrically, or LBE, campaign in March 1956. It was supported nationwide by 300 electric utilities and 180 electrical manufacturers. The campaign got then-actor Ronald Reagan, the popular host of
