  1. buying outright vs contract cellphone

    I work for AT&T's subsidiary called Cricket Wireless. There are plenty of inexpensive unlocked phones on the market. Feature-wise many are like taking a step back in time but there are some cheap phones that have very good features. One such phone is the LG X Charge. Phone costs just over $130 and has a great camera and a huge battery.
  2. Tillman wants the NHL in Houston

    KC does not have the population.
  3. Tillman wants the NHL in Houston

    27 million people in Texas, 6 million in the Houston area. The fourth largest city in the US. Booming economy and huge television market both here in Texas and into Mexico. And someone with money who has been very successful in business, especially the entertainment industry.
  4. Tillman wants the NHL in Houston

    Not funny. I live here in the Houston metro. I have friends that lost everything, and won't be back into their homes for months to come. We had to repair our roof and replace the sheet rock and insulation at our house. The scale of the damage is insane. The thousands of people that are now homeless is tremendous.
  5. Multibillionaire with cash to spend. Good news is the Toyota Center is already NHL ready. I would probably become a season ticket holder.
  6. Canucks starting goalie- Nilsson VS Markstrom?!

    People should stop complaining about our goalies letting in soft ones... Cloutier is our goalie coach. Need I say more?
  7. Our health care SUCKS!!! Failed my wife...

    So you went to the ER for a non life threatening issue and are surprised by having to wait, and when RICE and anti-inflammatories are prescribed. Pretty much a standard treatment; there is triage for a reason. Even with small stress fractures, a follow-up to your GP is recommended. Going to the ER cost the healthcare system $5,000.
  8. Favourite NHL Team (not named Vancouver Canucks)

    I have seen more Canucks games in Dallas than anywhere else and I also worked for the Calgary Flames. But I will always be a Canuck.
  9. Canucks fans worldwide show your support

    Big whoop to all ya'll back home from H-town. Too bad some people might not understand the Texas lingo.
  10. That was tough to watch but there are some positives.
  11. OMG Hurricane?

    This possible trajectory into the Gulf has all of us paying attention. But here on the Houston front, even today, the flooding has gone up in new places and down in others. At least all we had was a leak in the roof and some sheetrock that will need to be replaced. Take into account that it is nearly 33C outside and quite humid, mould grows fast.
  12. Snakes

    Just watch Lone Star Law and the Naked and Afraid episodes from Louisiana and Texas to see the diversity of wildlife down here. We have rattlesnakes in the sand dunes here in Galveston. I am from Nanaimo and married a Louisiana gal many years ago. There is nothing like a 12-foot alligator going under your boat to get your attention, or coming across a timber rattler or coral snake on your hike. The one that really gets you are the bull and hammerhead sharks that are feet from shore. At least the most threatening thing back home was a cougar or a Canadian goose.
  13. OMG Hurricane?

    Well, I love living down here in H-Town. I have not seen any price gouging. Sure, there may be anecdotal examples but the phrase, "Don't mess with Texas" means something. The state takes this issue very seriously. Fines, jail time and loss of business licenses are not worth it. But, the one issue, when it comes to hotels, there is a posted rack rate that they are allowed to charge. It might not seem fair to pay $359 a night for a 2-star LaQuinta, and it may seem outrageous, but that is legal.

    It is an amazing thing he is doing. The people here already loved him. We all will be endeared to him for the rest of our lives. Same for Mattress Mack who turned all of his furniture stores into shelters for people.
