  1. Nice photo. I wonder where it was found or who took the time to scan it?
  2. The Story Sloane's gallery has moved to its new location at 1570 South Dairy Ashford, suite 113.... COME CHECK US OUT AND GET A FREE B X W POSTER OF VINTAGE HOUSTON AS OUR HOLIDAY GIFT... Open december 21st.... look for our Eyes of Texas story on KPRC channel 2 at 7pm... features the historic Houston collection.... Look for my co host apperance on Great Day Houston December 31st at 9 am with Debra Duncan.... Happy Holidays! Story III
  3. What a great idea, only we would have to drill into the old Pierce Junction oil pool below the dome to pay for it all. I still remember the first time I walked into that wonderful building. I felt so proud to live in a city that had such a fantastic place to go and see neat events, of all kinds, in the ac no less... It would indeed be a Texas sized museum, with or without the Texas Cyclone THey had a big one down in Galveston also... Story III
  4. Annise has it posted on her website so check it out, it loads fast. don't get me wrong I like the woman and believe she has done good things for the city,,, its just my opinion when someone says an institution like a museum should not be funded in tough times then they imply that its not worth having at all... I did not think that the city even spent enough public funds on museums to even merit mention in a campain commercial much less compare to the funding of sports stadiums... story III
  5. Ha you are funny,, Yes Houston is only seventeen decades old, pretty new by world standards, if the preservation spirit in this town can not save a couple old movie theatres then the dome is indeed doomed....
  6. Her Public Safety commercial is a deliberate statement of non support for museum funding. Non funding means non support public or private... What would even motivate her to mention it anyway. Statements like that affect funding from all sectors of society. I just wanted one of the candidates to acknowledge that the concept of a History museum was a good idea. Not that their administration would fund it. It will take cooperation from all segments of society to accomplish the goal. I also have one of those Good Brick awards and was on the mayors task force for the preservation of Houston's histo
  7. Begging, come now, are you upset with that font comment... After all I backed it down to a 12... Evidently you do not read what I write. I do not expect the city of Houston to pay for this museum. That would be an unrealistic goal! I do expect our elected officials to support the concept because I feel it is what our community needs. The bulk of the money will have to come from the private sector. I do not think anybody will have to BEG for money once enough of a grass root effort is put together. That takes time and planning. This is a public forum. I am just trying to see what percentag
  8. Boy, when the size of the font used overshadows the content of the post I have to believe that some folks have to much time on their hands... Well my eyes are getting older so tiny fonts are not my bag, I wonder how many comments I will get about the font size now.. LOL
  9. EVERY POLITICIAN USES PUBLIC SAFETY AS A SUCKER PUNCH ISSUE TO GARNISH VOTES AND ANNISE PARKER IS NOT DIFFERENT. MUSEUMS NOT ONLY ENRICH OUR COMMUNITY BUT ALSO DRAW PEOPLE TO OUR COMMUNITY. ITS A SHAME THAT SHE HAS NO VISION OF THE ECONOMIC BENEFIT TO OUR CITY THAT A MUSEUM FOR HOUSTON'S HISTORY AND CULTURE COULD BRING. TIME TO LOOK AT OTHER CANDIDATES FOR MAYOR I THINK.
  10. It was one of the better burgers around the Memorial City Mall area early on. I loved the food there... Making me hungry now ...
  11. Well Annise Parker has made it official, In tough times NO FUNDING FOR MUSEUMS! So I think I can be safe in saying her priorities are not positive regarding the formation of a Museum for Houston's history and culture... Yet another pundit working towards the continuing fragmentation of our society........
  12. I have two more signings set up for my new book: Barnes and Noble book signing October 15th at 7pm, 12850 Memorial drive, Houston, Tx 77024 October 17th 1 - 4 pm The 1940 Air terminal Museum at Hobby airport book signing Hope to see everybody there....Story III
  13. Now this Peden Building and complex on San Jacinto street would make a nice home for a museum...

  15. That drink I thought was kinda funky but downed many of them at the Memorial city Mall when it was hot growing up in memorial hollow... That mall was an island of cool in the heat...
