  1. You have to be really careful of all the "protein" bars that are out there. Many are good, but many of the "heathly" ones are actually LOADED with sugar. Equivalent to a snickers bar, but they hide it under organic or whole grain... I'm pretty certain that brown rice syrup is just as bad for me as rice syrup, the whole thing make me furious. Stick to whole foods as much as possible. Veggies and fruits are great and easy. Among many great ideas already mentioned, I also like to keep hummus on hand. Turns out its really easy to make with a food processor.
  2. how could you omit the omnipotent burger?
  3. Okay, I've spent over an hour looking for that thread on the Whole Foods going up on Dallas (or near there). Can someone find it? sorry for the new thread but this is driving me NUTS
  4. I've been trying to figure out the features for months, it just confuses me more...
  5. went last night and had a blast!!! but then I was "in" with a couple of tents. I would definatley say that you need to have access to a private tent for it to be fun, but was told by a friend who had a tent that girls can generally get in anywhere if they ask right I also understand there is a free band/concert saturday night. not sure who though. So Red, if you ticket just gets you in to the bbq, I'd maybe pass (7 bucks woo hoo). If its for a specific booth or a tent, get you boots and bells out and enjoy.
  6. somewhere in the depths of this site I posted some pics a couple of years ago of the 'hood north of washington east of Sawyer. Many of those houses are rubble now with another stupid townhome on them. so sad, great bones.
  7. I've been very happy with Dr. Krutsinger at River Oaks Vision on W. Gray. 713-640-2020
  8. dentist cancelled my appointment cause he didnt have power!!!!
  9. i think its the latest yippie kid hot spot. once they move on to the next bar, you should get your neighborhood bar back.
  10. my advice, let the lady choose, red vs white, and ask if she has a preference. then look at the prices, tick 2 up from the bottom and you should be good to go.
  11. haha, nope not at all. degree in fish. work in energy. but seriously, what 19 year old is prepared to make a decision for their 40 year old selves?
  12. woodland heights is lot protected in some blocks and streets, but not others. http://www.woodland-heights.org/Neighborho.../mlsmbllist.htm
  13. Merry Christmas from Hartford, CT. I thought it might be interested to see where we all spread to this holiday week. (and who still checks in to HAIF )
  14. heres a pretty good synopsis about that... http://www.hal-pc.org/~lfa/BB38.html
  15. its a whole lot cheaper than nat gas!!! and i wasn't talking build, which, frankly, i'm not positive to how it compare to a nat gas or coal or whatever plant, but it seems that it would be cheaper...
  16. its a marketing ploy. sorry. a good one though... 1 - the energy you actually get comes from whatever generator is closest to your house. we live in Houston. Wind gen is mostly in west TX. guess what, you probably never use a kW of wind generated energy. 2 - getting that energy from west texas ranches to the suburbs requires power lines. lots of them. right now, so much energy is being made in west texas, and no where for the power to go, that generators are actually having to PAY to make power in west texas (well sometimes). 3 - its wind generated energy. wind is free. why do they charge you more for power if it is free? answer, they are hedging in the exact same, coal/gas/nuc market as the rest of them. at the end of the day, supporting wind energy is great, but it isnt the cure all solution.
  17. there's always the steamboat house over here off gessner and the beltway. food isn't great but it isn't bad. its a great place for business lunches. lots of texas memoriabilia.
  18. if you are here in Houston, you are in Centerpoint. (Dallas is Oncor). Reliant is likely to be the most expensive. No service is better than the other as they are all selling the exact same thing. The service (wires) is still regulated and handled by Centerpoint. The only difference is billing, customer service and agreement terms (like cancellation fees).
  19. no, looks like 9. 7 if you buy online. http://www.galvestonhistory.com/Dickens_Tickets.asp ive never been, is it worth the trip?
  20. Totally agree. i COULD be really good, but it kind of just floats by. I'm so over Ian I can't even stand it. and what's with Jack? they started off with all this energy between him and the main chick, then bam, he's gay. ???????
  21. Check this slideshow out. crazy..... McStarbucks as state in another board....McStarbucks....
  22. I'm not good at searcing old topics, but "back in the day" there was a forum called "Haunted Houston". I seem to remember a thread about this building...
  23. we tried to go last friday night, and it was INSANE. I felt like I was in some version of CSI Miami. Right out front they had all the crazy expensive cars parked right at the door in an obvious money flauting way. There were various stages of scantily clad girls and heaving frat boys...all JAMMED at the door trying to get in. We made a pathetic half hearted attempt to get in and then left. it supposed to be really neat inside, just stay away from it Friday nights for a few weeks until the "hot" wears off.
