Houston is booming…

Jun 25 2008 Published by under Ramblings

Related o my post from last week – Houston #1. Now, Newsweek reports:

Houston’s good fortune is largely a function of the current oil boom. But this isn’t the type of gusher that led to busts in 1981 and 1986. Instead, Houston is experiencing a 21st-century boom fueled by a weak dollar and global growth. “Three things affect Houston’s economy,” says Patrick Jankowski, vice president of research at the Greater Houston Partnership: “the price of energy, the value of the dollar and the strength of the U.S. economy at large.” As Meat Loaf said, two out of three ain’t bad.

Houston, We Have No Problems

Houston #1

Jun 20 2008 Published by under Ramblings

This is making the rounds all over the ‘net so I figured I’d post it too… πŸ™‚

It’s the city of big plans and no rules, beat-the-heat tunnels and loop-the-loop highways, world-class museums and wiry cowboys, humidity that demands an ice-cold martini and the biggest damn liquor store on the planet. How could you not love Houston?

  • Car got towed – tow truck bastards #
  • Car recovered $200 later – tow truck bastards are vultures, saw EIGHT wreckers drive by in 15mins #
  • @monicayoo in montrose – it was a “permit only” parking area – and it wasn’t clearly marked, and there was no “tow away” warning either. #
