    Hi from central Texas

    Recently moved here to be the city planner in a medium-sized community from NH. Lots of growth pressure in the Austin area, roads are really crowded. Enjoy your forum!

    Welcome from Chicagoland!!!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Welcome from the Hoosier State.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Welcome, from north of you, in Irving, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Keep an eye on RJ, he may want to take off with your Nebuchadnezzar of Château d'Yquem 2001 (what's that worth anyway $25,000??)

    FWIW, I'm not a fan of sweet French wines. You should keep The One on your list, too.
