re: Recommend me some Greek in Houston. - islandtiger
Not sure if I am too late, but Alexander the Great near the Galleria is really good...some of the best Greek I have had. BTW, the Holocaust Museum is worth a visit...not on par with the one in DC, but very well done....

re: Filled up for 2.20 today, prices below $2 by Christmas? - islandtiger
[quote]Thanks obama[/quote] I appreciate the sarchasm, but it is fun to highlight the stipidity of folks who were blaming Obama for high gas prices in 2012. Other than maybe conspiring with the Saudis to depress prices to punish the Russians, POTUS has little, if any, influence over gas prices....

re: employer match wording? - islandtiger
[quote]50% match on $1,250 is $625 << if you contribute the $1,250, then the employer will put in a maximum of $625.[/quote] That would be my take as well. Seeing these kinds of match levels sure makes me appreciate mine: 100% match up to 8% of gross. I contribute 12% so I can relatively painl...
