The Ghosts of Railroads Past

Welcome to Houston Past and Present, an ongoing post that looks at Houston’s landmarks in the past and what they have become today.  In some cases, unfortunately, the landmark is gone and a new modern structure has taken its place.
Houston, America’s fourth largest city is unique when looking at other major U.S. cities.  We have grown more rapidly than most, to be sure.  Additionally, we as a city sadly tear down our landmarks and replace them with modern structures to facilitate our growth.
Many Houstonians have lived here a short time …

Over the last week there have been many tributes to our veterans and the service they have done for our country.  I have had the opportunity to see helicopters land at a high school football game, escorting veterans in our community out on to the field to be honored.  I have seen elementary school hallways lined with pictures and tributes to family members, young and old, some still here and some that have moved on to a better place, that have served our country.  Our country has always, and will …

One of the most exciting things about custom art framing, is learning about new cultures and history.  Recently we had the amazing opportunity to frame a Ketubah for a local Jewish couple.  A Ketubah was not something I had ever heard of before, so I was excited to do a little research on it before we started picking out the right frame.  Ketubah, a sacred document in the Jewish religion, means “to write” from the Hebrew root word, Katav.  Stated quite simply it means to write out what is …

Art & Picture Framing: How to Choose Art for the Home

With the holiday season upon us it is a good time to think about decorating the house with new art and décor. Family and guests that may be visiting throughout the season will certainly be impressed, and you will derive years of pleasure from a well done, creative update.
The first thing to remember is, be yourself. Acquire art pieces that express the values and favorite styles of you and your family.  Trying to display what you think other people will like is going to express nothing, and that will …

Houston Astros New Ownership

As a longtime Astro/Colt 45/Buff fan, I am glad to see the purchase of the Astros finally take place.  We have endured the team’s  worst season in its existence, and there is no bright future immediately in sight.  Drayton McClane, the now previous owner, had clearly allowed the Astros to decay into a team that lost over 100 games this year.
Before we blame him too much, however, consider what he has brought us over the years.  We regularly made trips to the playoffs and one trip to the World Series.
