Sorry, Kristin, that was meant to be a joke. My wife always says my sense of humor is gonna get me in trouble one of these days... :(

I guess that's as good a way as any to discourage your parents from coming into your room... :wink:

Chili!! Man I can make a good chili, as long as you're not a chili purist. Here in Central Texas, we have a special word for chili purists. It's "Yankee". Seems like not too long ago, a bunch of them got into a big discussion about whether "real" chili could have beans in it. Of course, those who k...

Lovely poem! Here's mine: http://s62.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=1MPZUHGB4BDH41TUQQ8KKRD4V5 Recorded by Ted McElroy Run time: 0:01:23 Embarassing to admit, I've never read Yeats. I must strive to rectify this (he said, as he peered anxiously at the tottering mountain of "things to read soon...") :) Ted

LOL, Spike! I remember the energy "crunch" well. The bureaucrats at DOE dictated that all businesses turn their thermostats down to 68 degrees. What they didn't know was that office buildings in Southern coastal cities (Houston, New Orleans, Miami, etc.) aren't heated. There's enough heat generated ...

Howdy, Spike! Wow, another Austinite! By my count, that's at least four. I grew up in the Houston area and after a stretch in the Air Force attended school at UT Austin. Graduated in '74 and went back to Houston where I worked for 12 years at HL&P, first in the local area and then down in Matagorda ...

Another Austinite! Welcome, David! Grab a poem (or whatever) and start recording. If you find you like reading aloud on the Internet, there are several venues here in town where you can volunteer to do it in real life, too. Concerning the microphone "excuse"... I've had an opportunity to record usin...

I see! I wondered how everyone was creating those links. Actually, Yousendit creates the link no matter who you send it to. When you get the confirmation screen, right-click on the link and select "Copy Shortcut" (I think) and then paste it into your forum message. At least that's how I do it... :)...

I just realised that 'you N. Americans' pronounce Geoffrey with the eo sounding like the o in got (not like the e in get)! Well, I live in North America and I've never heard "Geoffrey" pronounced any way but "Jeffrey". Perhaps Chip is really an alien life form (from Cleveland, perhaps?) planted amo...

Welcome, raymondpaul! There's only one voice in the world that really sucks, and that's mine, so I'm sure yours will be great! Find a place and jump in. The weekly poetry project or the Aesop's Fables is a good place to start. Have fun! :)
