re: How long will movie theaters survive? - stuckintexas
A good friend of mine is in the cinema biz. He's a fan of the quality of movies. His family has a few theaters in the DFW area. They've been struggling the past two years. Top Gun: Maverick has been the biggest hit and biggest money maker in the post-COVID era. Marvel has been nothing but flops. Som...

re: Outer Range - stuckintexas
Had the flu this week, and watched this. I thought it was entertaining but very slow at times. Did we really need to see the buffalo with the arrows wandering into everything and everyone 100 times? I would have rather had more character development of the weirdo neighbor than the forced minority/ga...

re: A good grocery store is important -- Didn't realize it until we moved back home - stuckintexas
I have three Brookeshires I drive past to get to the closest HEB. They're ridiculously expensive for such poor quality meat and produce. HEB has a significantly higher quality of both, plus their pre-made items are fresh and really good. It's so much easier to pop a couple of those in the oven w...

re: Time to make e-verify mandatory for all states - stuckintexas
A friend of mine is a roofing contractor in DFW. All he has to do is submit a SSN for any employee. At the end of the year, the Fed Govt kicks back the fake ones. So he just submits new fake ones for the same employees. He receives no fines or anything, and doesn't even have to let go of the guys gi...

[quote]And I can't justify going to Publix anymore[/quote] I thought the same thing about going to HEB. Just too expensive. Like $250/wk for a family of three. So I started going to a Brookeshire's that was closer, but it was nearly the same price for only a few days and much lower quality food. ...
