  1. You can buy a sapling here if in stock https://legendarytrees.com/shop-trees/ I bought a seedling 15 years ago and donated it to our local Heritage Museum for Arbor Day. It was some special deal from American Forestry Association I think.
  2. Wow. I thought I was the only one who had one of those. Mine was a two door coupe in dark blue. My dad was a service mgr. for a Toyota dealer. Obviously I was much sportier than you. Mine was actually a pretty nice little car.
  3. Thanks. Should have said live national coverage.
  4. Timeline transcript between Mission Control and Columbia. https://spaceflightnow.com/shuttle/sts107/timeline/
  5. May 27th a Bell 407 working on the recovery crashed in the Angelina National Forest. Two of the crew died.
  6. Surprised a lot Texans don’t remember this. 7 astronauts killed and debris and body parts scattered all over East Texas. Sticks with me because I heard it, felt it and saw it. Of course Challenger was a take off carried live on all major networks. Also wasn’t it the first time a civilian went up? Columbia was caught live on some local D/FW stations. The recovery process for Columbia was also reported on and went on for a long time.
  7. About this time 20 years ago I was sitting in my home office checking HornFans. The house shook and the dogs started barking. I heard a muted “boom” as I walked out the front door. I looked up northeast and saw it streaking toward the southeast. In pieces. https://www.wfaa.com/article/news/local/space-shuttle-columbia-disaster-20-years-later/287-ac346e6f-3c5d-4352-9f6e-14a807f589e9
  8. Yeah it was a helluva show. Fripp was using the pseudonym “Dusty Rhodes” at the time. After two encores we were still screaming for more. The came back out and Gabriel said they hadn’t learned anymore songs and wanted to know if they could repeat something. So the did. 18 years later I saw Richard Lloyd again. This time at the Caravan of Dreams with Matthew Sweet on his “Girlfriend” tour. He was incredible and seemed to be having the time of his life.
  9. I’m trying to figure out how viewing that would actually harm a high school kid.
  10. Changing the water pump on a ‘79 Ford Fiesta in a bank Parking lot off I35 in August was a miserable experience.
  11. Bummer. Saw Television open for Peter Gabriel on his first solo tour. Row 4 at Dallas Convention Center Theatre. Seeing Robert Fripp, Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd on the same night was pretty cool.
  12. Went there pretty soon after they opened and spent the day. Looks like they have done a lot of improvements. The couple who were running it were from Dallas. Turns out we knew the lady. She was a bartender at Club Dada. Anyway it was a cool place. Had a blast driving the WRX out there.
  13. One of them is a left wing for the Allen Americans hockey team.
  14. Frisco arrests https://www.friscotexas.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=1856
  15. Highway Star-Deep Purple The Night Electricity Came to Arkansas-Black Oak Arkansas 30 days in the Hole-Humble Pie Born on the Bayou-CCR You and Me and My GT-Todd Rundgren Do You Know What I Mean-Lee Michaels Give it to Me-J. Geils I’m Your Captain-Grand Funk RR
  16. I believe the recent arrests of 23 Johns were the result of a Sept. raid at a Plano STR.
  17. Guggenheim was a big fan and long time collector of Kandinsky.
  18. And Sheriffs use it for the next election.
  19. Blatant publicity stunt. Pisses me off because there are plenty of actual trafficking operations in D/FW. Friend once had a business in NW Highway area and a place called Asian Tan went in next door. Girls would run an extension cord out the back door in the alley and cook dinner on an electric wok. Cops wouldn’t do shit. Even told him not to complain too loud because “Asian Mafia” “The operation coincided with the Department of Homeland Security’s Blue Campaign to highlight Human Trafficking Prevention Month, which is January.” “The victims of these heinous crimes are treated like commodities, used to make as much money as possible, as quickly as possible,” Tarrant County Sheriff Bill Waybourn said in a prepared statement. “Those who traffic victims are the scourge of the earth, and we will continue to target those responsible for the trafficking and those who solicit sex from them.” https://www.dallasnews.com/news/crime/2023/01/23/youth-pastor-high-school-teacher-among-those-arrested-in-sex-trafficking-bust/
  20. Best we can do. Not sure if he counts cause he went back to Idaho after the Boise State bowl game.
  21. Kandinsky is a favorite of mine. Went to The Guggenheim for their 50th anniversary. They were showing the first full-scale retrospective of his career in the United States since 1985. It was awesome.
