Not summer in Katy - was beautiful this morning, but about 10 mins ago it suddenly came over really grey and incredibly windy - my garden spade just blew across the yard into the pool! That'll teach me to clean up after me, like I'm always telling the kids.....

I'd call it Repeat Land because as you drive along HWY6 every few hundred yards you see the same sub-divisions, the same stores and the same restaurants...it just repaets over and over.

There was only the Sugar Mill and a few houses in that area when we first got here in the '80's....Fort Bend County was basically rural now it's just part of Houston. I guess the same will happen to Brazoria County from Pearland down Hwy 288.....hopefully not before we can retire and move away

Big thunderstorm last night up here. Terrible wind all day. I'm talking about the weather.

I picked a few good curry spots out down there. How about fish and chips?

I have been in baker st pub in sugar land. Can anyone recommend elsewhere?

No, no decent fish and chips....I keep thinking about opening a chippy cos there's so many brits around I'm sure it would be a little gold mine....only thing is I can't make proper batter, which could be a bit of a problem....

I went here 2 years ago and although the food was passable, I didn't like the service or the prices.

There are better indians closer to town near Greenway area (Westheimer/Richmond).

I passed thru Houston a while back - an extended stay spanning the rodeo. Have to say, it gets a bad press, and while I don't think I'd go as far as to say I love it, I always have a darn good time when I'm there...Up in Vegas now, and while it is always fun to come here, if I want to have fun, I'd choose H over LV - more down to earth, less obvious wallet extraction............
