Im talking the greater houston area, incl. Katy, Sugarland, Cypress. etc.
They were dirt cheap (relatively speaking) when I left there 7 years ago, but now I'm being told that they're in the middle of a "boom" and prices are rising drastically...even in the suburbs.
Is that true? What's g...

| O-T Lounge|| What color socks do you wear with brown casual/dressy shoes? - PenguinNinja on 5/3/13 at 3:31 pm|
If you're wearing the shoes with jeans in a relatively casual atmosphere (i.e. going out, but just in jeans and a button down or short-sleeved polo).
I struggle b/w dark brown, khaki, or navy.
ALSO, when the shoes are more towards the casual end of the spectrum, is white ever acceptable?

You'd think they're all communists after reading some of the reactions to Thatcher's death. It's almost universal over there.

I just watched the Friday Night Lights series, and Shazam'd a song from the finale and discovered this band/album:
The Low Anthem - Oh My God Charlie Darwin

Good stuff. Very much mood music, but relaxing IMO, with a few upbeat songs mixed in.

Think I'm gonna have to do this. I've been having buildup problems recently (I think due to moving to a different climate). Went to the doc and got prescribed some drops to dissolve the wax, but after using them for a few nights, it's just getting worse. I feel like my ears are full of liquid tha...

Seems that historically (including, but going back to waaaay before the 20th century) the Jews have been hated on a lot more than most other religions per capita. They're a relatively small ethnic group, but they've been at the center of a ton of deep-seated hate and wars going back to the BC era. ...
