re: BR people, what is the metal pier on the downtown levee next to the USS Kidd?
Posted by dewster on 7/31 at 9:14 pm
The Paperclip? It's for riverboat cruise stops mostly. When the water gets really high, there's sometimes a coast guard boat there and some tugs. I think it looks cool. Needs a new paint job. ...

That's what is so impressive about this to me.....it's one of many huge projects going on in SoLa that will have a positive impact the state for decades. I thought we were doing well up here with manufacturing expansion in my state with Mitsubishi Electric, Electrolux, and VW. It's a drop in ...

I worked a lot on the Golden Pass project out in Port Arthur about 7-8 years go. They are huge facilities, and huge labor forces are needed to construct them. I think the original part of Cameron was built around that time. ...

IMO, If you are going to propose very soon, then don't bother with the rent. You are both about to invest tremendously into each other and she'll be moving in anyway. You can have her sign a lease but I wouldn't really charge her anything if this proposal is in the near future. When a young f...
