  1. An article below, from the Economist last year about gentrification myths. I remember Montrose when you couldn't walk around at night for fear of being robbed, when burglaries and car thefts and gunfire were common. And folks thought nothing of parking vehicles on their front lawn. The link seems to work. I don't have an online subscription. https://www.economist.com/united-states/2018/06/21/in-praise-of-gentrification
  2. Aliana is building an over-55 "luxury" development in Richmond. It advertises as welcoming Indian Americans. It does state that all nationalities and cultures are welcome. This looks like a "Federal Seven" violation based on national origin, like saying "close to kosher deli" or "Norwegian-Americans welcome." Someone explain to me otherwise. www.tajresidences.com https://blog.chron.com/storystudio/2018/05/aliana-welcomes-new-55-plus-luxury-community-for-indian-americans/
  3. OT, but why are they showing a Starbucks on Yale between the Mac and the CVS? Is this the old Jason's deli corner?
  4. I've seen shiplap at the Historic Houston warehouse for sale, if anyone has a need. http://www.historichouston.org/salvage-warehouse.html
  5. The zone of interest at the back, if anyone is interested. Taken around 2012.
  6. Nancy Sarnoff (H Chronicle) podcast interviews here, with Bill Baldwin of the antis, and Scott McClelland of HEB.... http://loopedin.libsyn.com/
  7. Trulia has a crime heatmap. No big surprises. http://www.trulia.com/local/77002/tiles:1|points:1_crime
  8. Brr that is cold. The dew point is occurring in the subfloor. You could try adding fiberglass batts under the floor and move the dew point away from the wood. Or seal off the crawl space and condition it. The minisplit if running most of the time should dehumidify the room properly. If short-cycling, its way oversized and doesn't run long enough to take the moisture out (in the room). Or add heat strips under the subfloor, or install one of those New England circulating warm water floors. Internet reviews don't usually address gulf coast moisture problems properly.
  9. The crawl space is not "moisture free," it may be "dry" but is at ambient exterior conditions. Sounds like the new air is too big. The dehumidifier can't address the newly chilled subfloor and condensation there. Try a box fan in the doorway to move more of the cold air to the rest of the house. What temp are you running in the room?
  10. Blue Dogs, be aware that your answer to my post about the Cafe Express robbery has vanished, along with the original post. I guess I had ventured in a Forbidden Zone, bringing up a negative actuality in the toniest part of town.
  11. Maybe they can create a safe space at that location for those injured by the frankly racist name of the store. http://dailycaller.com/2014/04/26/its-official-at-dartmouth-the-word-fiesta-is-racist-and-white-people-cant-use-it/
  12. Iron Tiger has it right. Wendy Davis for Davis High. Ronald Reagan. Sheila Jackson-Lee for Lee High. Larry Johnston (NHL great). Save on letterhead and new signs.
  13. LEDs are at 4000K which is supposed to emulate moonlight. Fair enough. Its aesthetic, after decades of organgey lights, I'm getting used to it. Its the intensity that is a bother, depending on your setback, other lighting, etc. In the industry literature, they even mention that brighter lights result in heavier shadowing. I would prefer the moonlight towers like in Austin, but alas, low, minimal-shadow lighting is a thing of the past.
  14. New LED streetlights are way too bright, and have cold harsh light. The new ones on my street give the place the look and feel of a Wal-Mart parking lot at 2 am. Before city council. (I am not the person in the KUHF piece). http://www.houstonpublicmedia.org/articles/news/2016/02/08/136878/city-waiting-for-more-information-on-alternative-led-street-lights-as-some-call-for-change/
