    Much Thanks to our Good Neighbors over there to the West, in Texas

    We've needed quite a bit of help (in NOLA and surrounds) getting through these last years, and you guys were there to the rescue. Props to ya'll for how well you have been getting through what Mother Nature has been dealing out lately, without anywhere near the outside help.

    I'm impressed.


    Anytime the folks over this way get to complainin' about the usual, about having a Larger Than Life next door neighbor, I want to find a way to explain to them what it Could be like. So, Glad to know ya! And no, we have not forgotten, thanks! :^)

    Boris...i'm guessing you were hurt bad by Katrina. It's very cool that you find the diamonds among the stones and focus on those.

    That should qualify you for honorary Texas citizenship.

    I sure hope you Texans know why you should salute the California flag on the same day. ;)

    (Btw, I've lived in both "Republics.")

    Thanks. I'll make a note of all good wishes.

    Here are a couple of clips of Jerry Jeff from Austin with one of my favorite guitar players, John Inmon.

    Inman has chops to burn, thanks for posting. Goes to show that Texas is a melting pot for musical styles.

    I've always loved this song...



    Remember this guy? One of his best imo.

    Very kind of you to say so. I was actually much luckier than most, since none of my immediate family has lived here in a good long while - when I needed to escape, to save my sanity, I just jumped in the car and went.

    It is amazing how Galveston found a way to get back going, without all the fanfare. I genuinely thought NOLA could do the same but I'm afraid there's some structural breakdown over here - this Saints/Bounty story breaks and everyone driving a black vehicle is real grumpy, round here today. Texas stands as a measure of where South Louisiana should be and we're falling behind, badly.

    If only Texas had a Texas size proportion of Public Lands where a cheapskate outdoorsman could stretch his legs. Other than some grasslands in the far North, and some pine woodlands in the eastern portion, land is private and you can't just go and throw a tent on the ground anywhere you get tired. I'd love to see at least a fair amount of available space for that; it would be great, and with so much space in Texas, it would be pretty easy.
