  1. The current LHB director has been playing it way too uptempo lately anyway. Play a recording from the great LHB days under the direction of Vincent R. DiNino during the DKR era. That should also help the current era snowflakes with their social distancing. Win-win.
  2. IIRC, they no longer show anything under $25 on the website, but if you file a claim, they'll also add in anything else they have record of, allegedly.
  3. Longhorn Band is getting woke. Drum Major refuses to conduct "The Eyes." Many LHB members will also refuse to play the song. Also, no on field performances by the LHB due to "social distancing." Sounds like a real shit show is shaping up for this fall. https://uttsm.wpengine.com/?page_id=160&fbclid=IwAR3THjS-4oWdDUax2mBSCCS7B0WSsedLaU_KhA9TAOemoHU1lnO9n1J3r_k#6
  4. I've just gotta ask. What kind of a man eats broccoli with brisket?
  5. l did something similar for a friend who has big problems with gluten. Pulled aside some of the ingredients from the big gumbo I was making and made a small batch without roux. Then added a slurry of corn starch and water at the end to thicken it up. I wouldn't have eaten it, but she was pleased to have it.
  6. Can't remember if I'd previously posted this here or on TOS. Still a great cover.
  7. Perhaps there is something happening? Dreaming of a Downtown Austin H-E-B https://austin.towers.net/dreaming-of-a-downtown-austin-h-e-b/?agent=caitlyn@towers.net
  8. UT official: No parties, on or off campus, are allowed for fall semester Good luck with that policy. https://www.statesman.com/news/20200731/ut-official-no-parties-on-or-off-campus-are-allowed-for-fall-semester?fbclid=IwAR04WDsb_sI8sVZC_GgS0FaOS-8O2oFOoHuip-vlHnJQgD2ggT5LL9pQK9I
  9. Savage, thick crust whole wheat, anchovies and japs (no racist), FTW.
  10. Just did my "Real ID" in-person license renewal at the Pflugerville DPS license center today. It was a piece of cake. Due to the Covid stuff, they just make you read a physical chart on the wall using both eyes-- no testing of one eye vs. the other. I passed the vision test without wearing the one contact that I usually only wear at night. I was able to remove the prior vision restriction from my new license. Can't say enough about how smooth the new online appointment process worked. I had an 8 am appointment, they let me in at 7:45 am and my license was issued at 8:06 am. I'd already filled out and printed the license application available online, so that seemed to speed up the process. Wholly unlike a typical gubmint operation. Kudos to them.
  11. My apologies, I didn't make it clear enough for you. The carpetbaggers took over local governments and effectively stole land during reconstruction.
  12. White guy here. Earlier generations of my family were never wealthy enough to own slaves. They did receive some original land grants as early settlers in the times leading up to the establishment of the Republic of Texas. Many acres of that land were lost to the reconstruction era property tax land grab schemes. My late great grandmother (born in 1892) told stories (one generation removed, obviously) of reconstruction era carpet baggers harassing land owners, threatening foreclosures, indiscriminately assessing valuations and taxes and generally letting them know that they needed to sign over their deeds to them if they knew what was good for them. History is way more complicated than what you see on TV or on the internet.
