I'm supporting the economy, what can I say?

BTW, Krystals really sucked and I don't know if I'll be back anytime soon. A lot of the buns were wet from the steam or something and they didn't taste good. Dogs loved them, though.

That was my problem with Krystals, the buns were all soggy. Yuck.

This is a long read: Housing Push for Hispanics Spawns Wave of Foreclosures - WSJ.com
but it sure does show who the problem was. Funny how they try to deflect the blame and sad that so many people actually believe them.

Having read enough of your posts, I'm going to hazard a guess you don't mean the ethnic group in the title of the article was the source of the problem. May I suggest you define the "who" in your post more precisely for the benefit of those who might be inclined to hazard the opposite guess and notify the moderators?

FWIW, no one has notified the moderators... but my crystal ball tells me it could happen.

oh no, the ethnic group was taken advantage of by one of their own. I personally find those people the most despicable of all; them and the ones that take advantage of older people. They always build a relationship of trust and then destroy the other person without a care. I just don't understand heartless people.
That's why I would never vote along ethnic lines. I'm always for the best person, no matter what sex they are and what they look like.

I have been reading this thread and true to it's nature it is all over the place. Mostly movies and restaurants. Actually that is a good reason for it to be here. I am San Antonio born and bred but I have traveled around america, mostly on business. A lot of new stuff is coming into San Antonio and I think this thread could be a place to go to keep up with this kind of thing. I think it should be more than a chat line, but not much more. I like input on new restaurants--maybe there is a thread for that but I don't know of one. Maybe we should call this thread "San Antonio new and expanding" or something!!

Something else. I got the new digital converter box so I can convert to digital TV in Feburary. Only problem is that it requires AC power to run and my old TV's are battery operated for use in power outages and bad weather. What can I do this spring when the bad weather hits to keep in touch other than radio?

Where can I get a converter box for $40? I got the coupons but I don't want to spend more than $40 (so they're free).
