  1. Denise, Thanks for all your info. I had heard about hugs but didn't know, or forgot, they had a greenhouse.
  2. Thanks for the recommendations. I did know about Appealing Gardens and that is on my list. I try to get at least 3 recommendations. I do have some wildflowers (rock rose, winecup, and verbena which is my favorite). Actually, I dug up the latter from the land around me 30 years ago before they developed the land. I also had two different trees but one died due to all the rain several years back and the other might have had the same problem. I also have an area for wildflowers but then my yaupon holly grew and shaded the area a little too much. I'm not planning to have an area that is really sunny for wildflowers; wish I could get rid of all my grass and have native plants. I also have some native plants in the shade. Some native plants came from the Heard Museum sale many years ago or from organic nurseries plus Puckette's most recently.
  3. Can you provide names of some landscape designers?
  4. Actually, I got a big laugh from those two happenings on the same day. Just goes to show "don't believe everything you hear". Every time he opens his mouth, one cannot believe what he says; he's the one making 'fake news' in many cases. The experts call him a narcissist for a good reason. I'm wondering what really happened with China during G20 and whether any good changes will come about for so many of our farmers and companies, including the small companies. At least the big corporations got their tax cuts and they may not complain about the high tariffs since they can pass any costs along to the people.
  5. Scientist mostly say just light refraction, but I agree with rtinallentx. Whose to say? And, it does bring a smile to most people.
  6. Adding because couldn't find how to save after editting. Anyway, I don't want to do a self-install for coaxial cable.
  7. When house was built, never had coaxial cable installed so only connection with land line. Spectrum installation for internet requires connection via this. They probably would install coaxial cable (haven't asked) but wondering best way to get it done.
  8. I agree with the other guy, use this url https://www.dmv.org/tx-texas/teen-drivers.php This provides most of the info you need, including documents you will need to just get a learner's permit. Many years ago my Dad would take us driving on backroads. I mean roads that you may see 0-2 cars on for 20+ miles with the road having hills and curves and not driving through any towns; don't know if that is possible these days around Texas unless you go out west. We would also practice in big parking lots with no vehicles around. Of course, we also had to take a course both inside and outside (boy, did I scare my trainer one time and he probably wanted several drinks) and learn the driver's manual.
  9. Page 8 at bottom, middle column, says differently. Up to 3 cubic yards (about the size of three washing machines placed side-by-side) of tree and brush trimmings. Branches must be no longer than 6 feet in length. From 1st column: Requests for pickup must be received by noon on the day before your assigned collection. Call CWD at 972.392.9300 (option 2) to schedule.
  10. No more Mexican, burger, chicken, or pizza joints. Wish we had a Culver's (great cod and walleye when in season) since closest is in McKinney on Eldorado, or maybe nice Italian restaurant.
  11. My favorite place went out of business several years ago and now my newest favorite place went out of business. Haven't found a good pizza place and am really picky. I had also planned to order another one. Ouch! At least I've already marked off several pizza joints and only have a few available that I haven't tried. Don't bother even suggesting some because they probably won't meet my tastes.
  12. You would think the police would at least try to find the person staying there and see what type of help the person might need. Of course, if the person isn't bothering the children, they're hands might be tied. I would check with several of the above and see what they recommend; I know Samaritan Inn has a place for people (single or family) to stay but they also go through counseling and training to find a job and there is a limit to the time the people stay. Some groups feel that trying to get vagrants to move elsewhere is harrassing the poor and that would not look good--you're d... if you do and d... if you don't.
  13. Al, thanks for the link about the history. It's a shame they won't preserve it.
  14. It would be interesting to see each specific area in which scored and the score for each area by restaurant. Did it specify the location for each restaurant because there are several Scotty P's, Mooyah Burger, and Long John Silvers. I've also seen where one restaurant in one location got good reviews and the other location got bad reviews. I've also seen junk food places score better reviews than some really nice restaurant.
