  1. It was explained to me by a Panamaña that the roadway would not be opened until the inspectors were 100% satisfied and even a minor crack/crevice would hold up the approval. This was what delayed the area is Las Lomas for a couple of months.

  3. Our family is spread throughout Texas, and specifically our youngest daughter, our siblings and cousins live along the Gulf Coast directly impacted by Harvey. They are all physically safe although we have had several friends/acquaintances who have lost homes, cars, etc.. My cousin began having water in her home today with the continued rise of major rivers. Rockport took the direct hit at landfall and is about 70% destroyed. From Wharton County eastward into Louisiana...much remains underwater today and that water is becoming increasingly contaminated. The city of Beaumont lost its water treatment plant and there is no clean drinking water. The cleanup is beginning but will take a very long time. Last report was approaching 50 deaths. Texans are a resilient bunch and will recover. It has been heartwarming to watch the reporting of neighbor helping neighbor. And by neighbors I mean those across the street, those from Austin/San Antonio/Dallas and elsewhere across Texas, and those from Louisiana, Oklahoma, Kentucky, and other states. We have two nephews involved in the rescue and recovery efforts...one with the American Red Cross who came in from Arizona, and one in law enforcement who came from Lubbock. Our kids spent the day helping a family member salvage what they could from her flooded apartment. To hear the comments of reporters from New York and California who came to help the local stations brought tears to my eyes more than once. We watched ABC13's coverage almost nonstop for a week. One reporter from Los Angeles said that he was used to covering natural disasters like earthquakes and fires, but he had never witnessed the brotherly love he had seen while in Houston. So to answer the question about whether it is really as bad as being reported, the answer is it is much worse on a natural disaster level than you can even comprehend. But the sense of spirit, love, support, resilience, faith, grace (and so many other words I cannot come up with without crying again), are also much more than is being reported by the national news media. Hopefully the US and the world will see and let go of some of the hatred and anger so prevalent in these unsettling times in which we live. #TexasStrong

  12. We are looking for a source for several yards of good topsoil to be delivered. Any leads?
  13. Embrey and his team did a fabulous job on my kitchen, indoor and now outdoor. He will be back here Monday if you want me to pass on your info. His cell service is sometimes iffy, but he does respond to whatsapp and even calls fairly quickly during working hours. Try texting him if you don't have whatsapp.
  14. There are two Peneco stores. Main store is downtown next to Nat Mendez Jewelers and one block before Hotel Cuidad de David. The other is just over the overpass, first right, two blocks, turn left, down on the right. I like Peneco but also like to shop at Selecta for excellent fabrics at very good prices. Selecta is just over the overpass on the left, first store past Beverly Hills Plaza. If you're looking for some basic work, I may be able to help. My "workshop" will be open again soon now that the jazz fest is done.
