That was from Earl Long, brother to Huey Long who established the Louisiana family political dynasty with such gems as Share The Wealth, and Everyman A King (in the great depression).
Happy Huey P. Long day!

resellerratings.com, from a smarthome.com purchase. They mean well, I guess. Amazon does the same thing and they get similar food for the grist mill occasionally.

The Death Star architect finally explains his "design flaw" is not really a flaw. I am thankful I don't have these types of issues.

Worked from home today, but still managed to squeeze in 100mi on two trips: Lunch and the #DallasMakerspace.  I would have been 100% electric if I invested in a L2 charger at the house.. or had the new Volt with an extra 15mi per full charge (and I had two of those today).

NO DATA IN MY AREA.  Egads man!  Like dangling a candied kipper in front of Dr. Zoidberg.
Our recommendation is based on your bill, electricity rates in your area, and the sunlight your roof receives. Based on Google's database of aerial imagery and maps, Project Sunroof knows how much space on your roof can fit solar panels and where is best to install them.

One of the things I love about historic McKinney is the small-town feel, and this store exemplifies it! Family owned and run, they can actually answer darn near any question you can throw at them. Prices are the same as Home Depot but you can get real support here. I wondered how a small business can still be going after the big "discounters" moved in. Turns out when you are more convenient, and have better service you keep customers. Long live the Grooms!

Excellent pizza, delivered free. Did I mention the pizza is really good?! I like the thinner, crispy crust anyway so it was perfecto! My wife prefers the thick doughy kind of crust but ate her entire medium with no complaints. Actually this beach area seems to have lots of great pizza joints, who knew?

Dishes a Notch above other Pho! Broth is amazing, and the "Japanese" fried rice, which comes with sliced kernels and tossed with tobiko was chef quality fare. Also the spring rolls with delicate flavors nearly filled us up. Go go go!

Not sure what to expect going in? Well, clear your mind and just enjoy the traditional treatment. ie: Shut up and relax. I had the swedish massage too, which is worth it in my opinion. You are already loose from the heat so it just makes sense and for a loosey goosey butt. The historic experience is NOT a modern, pamper experience - but it is a real trip to see a 100 year bath house and "walk" in peoples naked footsteps, equally naked. Recommended!

Saw there was only 1 terrible review and had to balance it a bit. We had a great time at the go-karts, this track is SO much better than the other place in town. No comparison! Go for the Karts, but not much else. But there was only a hand full of video games, the miniature golf course is tiny and the indoor bumper were out-of-order. The air hockey table was a redeeming feature while waiting between the 6 minute go-cart races.

Had a great time! Don't expect a full-on museum, but it is about the biggest publicly viewable toy collection I know of. The guided walking tour is about 5 rooms, but does keep your attention; along with the lighting and sound effects. Plus you can pose for pics with Troopers, Vader, Yoda, Carbonite Solo... The staff are geeks and really knew their Star Wars trivia. Recommended!
