  1. Yup... some people are saying he will use the proceeds from the Puerto Rico sale to buy Hawaii. Apparently too many people in Puerto Rico speak Mexican.
  2. Yeah... they're so excited about having paid all this money to see a tiny dot on a stage. Weirdos.
  3. Its pure ignorance honestly and its negative people who take one bad experience and then extrapolate it. Its a fascinating city and, personally, the further you get way from the sestiere of San Marco, the better it gets. San Marco has amazing sights but it generally more crowded and more expensive with less value. Its a place worth exploring and getting lost (not hard)
  4. Yeah it was. Still remember... move move gooooo leave!?
  5. Hmmm... saw the latest rain forecast from the NWS... looks like it shifted
  6. This is the way... we go for 3 weeks. To say we have limited plans is an understatement. Save for a boat tour one day and a quick overnight near some friends in another town, our calendar is largely open. We do have plans related to a major sporting event... more on that later.
  7. It wasn't about sea level. Rita was a beast... "After entering the Gulf of Mexico, Rita rapidly intensified over the very warm waters of the loop current and within an environment of very weak vertical wind shear. Rita reached a peak intensity of category 5 with sustained winds of 180 mph (155 knots) and a minimum pressure of 895 millibars (26.43 inches) at 10 PM CDT September 21st. This low pressure makes Rita the strongest hurricane every recorded in the Gulf of Mexico, and 4th strongest in the Atlantic Basin. https://www.weather.gov/lch/rita_main It was heading towards Houston until about 20 hours before landfall and then it took that right turn into LA and hit as a Cat 3. We stayed home... I remember what a cluster it was but Rita was a massive hurricane.
  8. Awesome. Thank you. If anything peppers and basil stays. Shade cloth will keep things reasonable until we return
  9. I need some advice. I'm going to be out of town for an extended period of time during the heat of Central Texas summer. I have tomatoes and pepper plants and I'm thinking of just cutting back the tomato plants and then putting up shade cloth above the plants to protect them and peppers while I'm gone. I'll have some kind of sprinkler set up as a drip setup, but I'm thinking it's just easier to cut everything back. If the tomatoes survive they survive. Other option is to tear out the tomatoes because we're going into the hottest part of the summer. I'll still put up the shade cloth to protect the peppers and herbs and the drip system. Thoughts?
  10. WTF... the rumors of my demise are greatly exaggerated. Uh, I'm jetlagged... from California? Oh well... ChatGPT (Verse 1) Down in Austin town, where the stars shine bright, There's a legend folks talk about late into the night. With a twinkle in his eye and a hat on his head, Leslie took the stage, and the streets became his bed. (Chorus) Oh, Leslie, with your skirts so fine, You danced through the streets like a bottle of wine. You ran for Mayor with a heart so true, Though you didn't win, you left us all in awe of you. (Verse 2) He wore dresses and wigs, didn't care what they said, In a world of norms, he painted his own spread. With a feather boa 'round his neck, he'd strut his stuff, And in the city of weird, he couldn't get enough. (Chorus) Oh, Leslie, with your skirts so fine, You danced through the streets like a bottle of wine. You ran for Mayor with a heart so true, Though you didn't win, you left us all in awe of you. (Bridge) They say politics is serious, but Leslie knew better, He brought joy and laughter with every feather. He may not have won, but he sure did inspire, To be yourself, to dream big, and never tire. (Verse 3) Now Leslie's gone, but his spirit lives on, In every drag queen and king, in every break of dawn. So here's to Leslie, the Mayor of our hearts, In a city where weirdness is where the truest art starts. (Chorus) Oh, Leslie, with your skirts so fine, You danced through the streets like a bottle of wine. You ran for Mayor with a heart so true, Though you didn't win, you left us all in awe of you. (Tag) Oh Leslie, oh Leslie, you'll always be, The spark in our souls, wild and free.
  11. The demise of Leslie's death are greatly exaggerated
