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. ...

I think that's what we have. It's a little softer than I'd like but it's still very comfortable. My in-laws bought it for us, and knowing their furniture and buying preferences, it's probably top of the line or close to it.
We have a posture-pedic (or something like that) in the room a...

The comment in the story from the plant manager claiming that they've lost employees because of commute times is as much an indictment on the availability of good, desirable housing and public schools on the west side as it is traffic on the east side.
I'm sure the study will claim that the exp...

Motorcycle cop did well. That car was going to get hijacked if he wasn't there.
Had the perp not driven that SUV into the ravine and turned the corner on that two track, he might have been able to get back up hill to that paved street. I guess he didn't see the corner. ...

That agent is probably getting fired for that. The tweet was bad, but the news stories about not letting the family board until the tweet was removed it are much so much worse.
They aren't totally clear if the kids had priority boarding (I'm guessing they did not)....so it leads readers to beli...

As a whole, probably left of center....but not entirely. Some of the Jewish people I know are pretty vocal conservatives. I work with one who got into trouble with his HOA for having a political sign in his front yard (Romney-Ryan).
Despite Obama's rhetoric, this country as a whole backs Isreal...

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.
