  1. I have been unable to locate mountain laurel from local nurseries because they are all sold out. A neighbor has given me some surplus volunteer seedlings from her yard. Do you have any recommendations for potting and/or transplanting them?
  2. How about Sister Jean from Loyola Chicago. Devine intervention may be the way to go.
  3. You are correct, sir. Tom Penders, Kris Clack, Terrence Rencher, Rich McIver, Reggie Freeman, etc.
  4. Wiki says UT won 2 Southwest Conference Championships tournaments (1994 and 1995). UT won or shared the Big-12 regular season championships 3 times (1999, 2006, 2008) but has never won the B12 tournament.
  5. Why do many UT fans dislike Baylor basketball coach Scott Drew? He wins a lot of games, but so does Kansas coach Bill Self, and there doesn't seem to be a similar dislike for Self.
  6. Well I was totally unprepared for that. Outside tankless water heater (what a joke) froze up at 10 Sunday night. Electric power went off at 2 am Monday. iPhone battery failed at 3pm Monday. Slept with 3 pair socks + shoes, 2 long johns plus blue jeans, t-shirt, 2 sweaters and overcoat, two knit hats under every blanket I owned doubled and coats piled on top of that. That for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Power back on at 1:05 Thursday. Had to reboot my furnace to get heat going again at 2 pm. I still have water but I won't know about water pipes under house and outside until it thaws o
  7. I went outside about 5 to cover a vent that goes under the house. I won't do that again. I almost fell on the ice and my fingers got numb in about 3 minutes. Seems like it got down below 10 once when I lived in Kerrville in the 80's but I haven't seen it this cold in these parts since then. City of Austin Utilities just sent out an email asking everybody to reduce electricity use where possible. I may have to move farther south.
  8. Happy Birthday University of Texas. I cherish your design.
  9. I remember he dove into the end zone, probably figuring someone was about to tackle him and wanting to ensure the ball crossed the plane of the goal. But at the time, diving into the end zone was considered an unsportsmanlike infraction and he was penalized for it. These days I don't think it would draw a flag.
  10. I'm a little late to the 4-man or 3-man defensive line discussion but here is what I remember from when Ash replaced Orlando. Many felt that high school DL recruits preferred the 4 man line because they had more opportunities to showcase their skills and make plays rather than eat up blocks so others could make tackles. It was a recruiting strategy as well as a system preference.
  11. Win ugly or die hard, and old ugly is better than old nuthin'. Hookah Horns!! UT 10 -- 6 KSU
  12. I think Sterns was hurt a lot last year and earlier this year with a turf-toe. His numbers have not be equal to his freshman year's numbers and he has caught a lot of flack for that and for his social justice stance. I don't blame him for wanting to go somewhere else and start over. And if he can get paid for it, all the better for him.
