I guess its kinda like buying a house next to an airport then complaining about the airplane noise!  I'm not 55 yet but I can see it up ahead and I gotta tell ya I still like the thump, thump, thumpin music... 



Agree.  I would think anyone wanting to locate there would have to enjoy that type of surroundings and if so, at that age would probably  already have somewhat reduced hearing ability anyway.  Some people wouldn't mind living near an airport (including me) as they enjoy watching and hearing planes take off and land.  I guess it's even possible some might not even mind living across from a house of ill repute so as they age they could reminisce. :closedeyes:

#89005 Saddleback Leather to open downtown

Interesting article about a company that's moving from internet to opening their first sticks and bricks here on Main street....




Looks like some nice leather bags, although a little large and heavy.

I never understood Neiman's policy of not accepting any credit cards but their own.  I realize the charge back fee but at their mark up I wouldn't think that would cost them that much and would cut into their sales.

It seems the crime rate has risen sharply on the West side of the city over the past several years and this could also hinder retail rental space at Ridgmar.

Mi Charrito's is still open - ate there last week.  Good food but margs are weak as nearly all places except Joe T's so I allways take a couple of airline bottles of tequila with a little amaretto mixed in to add to keep them topped off :swg:

Texas Chile has been around for about 60 years.  They are in Ft. Worth and make the "block" chile you can buy at Walmarts etc. and is very good chile. All I add is a little cayenne pepper.     http://texaschili.com/home

I think charter rates are more like $800 to $1200/ hr. I wouldn't want this one - look, the engine just stopped! ohmy.gif
