I'll bet these kids have been celebrating all weekend. Talk about Friday Night Lights! I love the non-social distancing at the end. https://twitter.com/Texan_Live?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1317299596910092288%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3%2Ccontainerclick_1&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.outkick.com%2Fhouston-high-school-game-ends-on-beautiful-51-yard-hail-mary%2F

Now I might change my mind about masks. Hormel Foods, known for its Black Label Bacon, announced the launch of "Breathable Bacon," what it calls "a revolutionary face mask featuring the latest in pork-scented technology." https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/food/2020/10/14/hormel-black-label-bacon-face-masks-giveaway/3653043001/

As to this Wuflu BS. I went down to the corner store for a few items the other night. The new guy behind the counter got on me for not wearing a mask.(I have not worn a mask since this whole thing started)I just told him it was BS and to ring up my purchases. I then insisted he come from behind the counter and wipe down the electronic pen I had to use to sign my credit card purchase. Boy you should have seen his face. I am generally a mild-mannered guy but this little Napoleon got my dander up.

I have a question for someone if you know TX law. We are settling my brother's estate.(no will) We have an attorney that set up my dad's trust and did a great job when he passed away. Now we are told that we have to have a court appointed lawyer to go through probate, and he will contact us. When we have a family lawyer why do we need another one. Haven't been able to contact our lawyer about this. My sister is executor in this case. I was executor of my dad's estate. Is this just a revenue generator for lawyer's?

I have no fireplace. After all I live in Houston. But, my tax assessment says that I do. I've been trying to get that changed for a few years. Now my folks place in Austin had a 6ft by 5ft fireplace that even had a swinging hook so that you could hang a cook pot in it. My dad had to order extra long cords of wood for it.

Caro Great ad. That's my Congressman!! One of the reasons he beat the opposition in the primaries in 2018 is his great sense of humor.

Saw at Insty Ahoy, me hearties! As many of you know, September 19 is International Talk Like A Pirate Day, an annual phenomenon that’s taken the world by storm, having been observed by every continent, the International Space Station, and even the Oval Office since it first made headlines back in 2002. So let’s hoist the Jolly Roger, break out the rum, and take a look back at the holiday’s timber-shivering history.

I have a question about Amazon. I bought something through a company on the Amazon site. The company is located in PA, but they are charging me sales tax. I realize that Amazon has brick and mortar sites in TX but this is an out of state company. Why should I pay taxes on this? it didn't use to work this way.

Ran across this recently Policeman - By. Paul Harvey Paul Harvey (1918-2009) was a radio broadcaster for the ABC Radio Networks. He gave the "Policeman" speech on talk radio nearly 40 years ago and it is known as one of his best speeches....Mr. Harvey's father inspired this speech....He was a police officer who was shot and killed while doing what police officers do every day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQ1YsyZMaaU

I love this: Shetland Islands could expose SNP for the one-trick con artists they are WELL no-one saw that one coming. Little Shetland, beautiful, windswept, glorious little Shetland, has just launched a political broadside against Nicola Sturgeon which could genuinely sound the death knell of the Scottish Nationalist Party. https://www.express.co.uk/comment/expresscomment/1334240/Nicola-Sturgeon-latest-news-SNP-news-Shetland-Islands-independence-Scottish-referendum
