Never been to Vail or aspen though
Oh so you know about Colorado? I love Colorado, but i had lived there for 18 years, since I was a baby. I wanted to try something different and decided on Texas because I have alot family in both Dallas and Houston (mostly in Houston). I went to college in Pueblo at CSU. Those were some fun times! Funny you mention that about Trinidad. We always used to joke on that but we did have some of the most gorgeous hispanic women from Trinidad that went to our school! And yes they were women

Yeah I know Colorado fairly well. Love it. It makes for a welcome change to Houston.

My friend in Pueblo keeps telling me she is moving to Texas for the Palm trees and I keep telling her that I am moving to Colorado for the snow and open air

Maybe back in the 1960's for a short period of time.

Houston has historically built taller buildings than Dallas & more of them.

what happened? I know we had a lot of scale back in the mid 80's. I think if the 80's had been better we would have been like the NY Chi town rivalry. each trying to build a taller building.

thanks for all the reps.

I really need them

how do you do it btw?
