Just Got to Houston Today

I got to Houston this morning and spent a couple of hours looking around I figured that I would stop and have a look at the old Astrodome, which is probably not going to be here when I get back here next year. I guess that they sold the naming rights to reliant energy and it is called Reliant Park or the Reliant Astrodome. It is not as big as the newer Reliant Stadium where the Houston Texans play. Of course you do not want to get these people into a conversation about that football team right now. They fired their head coach about the time I hit town and everyone was pretty riled up about the way that they had lost twice to the Jacksonville jaguars, including the game that was on last night on Thursday Night Football.

I guess they looked pretty bad, but I was on the road at the time, pulling out of St Louis last night about the time that game kicked off I guess.

How to Keep Ourselves Safe

I don’t like to take chances. I grew up in a city that was less than friendly to the people that lived there. A day or night didn’t go by that I wasn’t exposed to the sound of gun shots outside my window or the shouts of people fighting or even hearing of a neighbor being robbed. Even our home was robbed twice back to back resulting in the loss of nearly every single electronic device in the house. It was a terrible place to grow up. After moving I looked for the best home security in Fort Worth – I wasn’t going to allow myself to be a victim again.

It’s a terrible way to live. The constant fear, I mean. Living night after night with one eye open and your body tense with the readiness to respond at the slightest noise.
