Just came here to rant, didn't think it was worthy of starting a new thread.
I was on broadway this morning driving to work, stopped at a red light (1st in line), light turns green. I sneeze, shift into 1st gear and HHHHHOOOOOOONNNNNNNKKKKKK!!!!!!!! The school bus behind me is honking several times telling me to get going.

Now I wasn't falling asleep at the wheel for +5 seconds, I just sneezed. I was shocked. I'm not a parent, but I certainly hope that kids weren't on that bus learning how to drive from some ill tempered bus driver. Really? Set an example.

Happy Texas Independence Day, everybody! Taking the little kids to check out one of the original copies of the Texas Declaration of Independence at the Alamo and the newly re-opened Casa Navarro. Homeschool preschool's going back to the 1800's today, y'all.

I don't know about that anymore. Article in National Geographic pretty much said genetics rules the nest and parents have little to no impact on how a kid turns out. Geez....all that work for nothing

Possibly, but you could say that those with alcoholic parents were born with an "alcohol gene". Does that mean they can go ahead and drink to their heart's content? No, we still have a choice and a way to live our lives.

Another cool place for history is that museum next to the Witte. I can never seem to remember the name of it. TX Frontier Museum????I usually go there then the Witte. Then go eat at WD Deli or Good Time Charlie's.
