There are letterboxes along that route. I hope building the wall does not lead to the destruction of any boxes.

They're building a wall? You must be getting your news somewhere other than I do. That's not the rumor I heard. ;o)

I totally get you on this! I've lost a lot of "friends" over the past few years because of their inability to be reliable. We'd schedule just a simple lunch for a few weeks out and then I'd be on my way there, sometimes driving for a solid chunk of time, for them to text me and be like "oh, my mom says I can't go." Is that so? You're 23 and your mother says you can go out for pizza at 11:30 on a tuesday? Then an hour later they're posting on snapchat that they're out bowling or something with another friend.

I think it's part of the new "millennial culture" where nothing is urgent and reliability and expectations are jokes...

I really really like the idea of a "venting event". I don't want to promise anything but I will make every effort to go no matter where it is and will ONLY rsvp yes if I know I can make it :)

Apparently, they approved a portion back in March, and are set to bulldoze soon.

From the Sierra Club FB page:
"We now know that they're going to start building Trump's border wall in the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge of South Texas in just a couple of weeks. They will bulldoze a 150-foot swath of forest and cover it with gravel and then build an 18- to 30-foot concrete wall with steel posts on top.

The funds for this border wall were provided in the March 2018 Omnibus spending bill which allocated $1.6 billion for border walls and passed with bipartisan support.

This wall will permanently damage and possibly lead to the closure of Bentsen State Park and the National Butterfly Center, which are important economic drivers in the Rio Grande Valley. And it will end forever our dreams of a restored wildlife corridor along the river.

Please contact your Members of Congress today and everyday using the Congressional switchboard (202) 224-3121 and the office of Governor Greg Abbott at (512) 463-2000. Please share this information, too, since so many people are under the mistaken impression that Trump's wall has not yet been funded."

I have not verified the information yet, but hope they did.

I apologize for bumping this for cloying kitten stuff (😻) but I had to share. After reading Una Marlee Sue’s comment to ECP, she has adopted it as her new catch phrase. Every time she spots Logan she coos, “He’s sooooo handsome!” in a song-song voice.

Sometimes.... but sometimes, I think he's just lazy. He'll say he's "busy," and I'm sure he is, but how long does it take to fix the colors of a theme?! Really?

I'd give him 12 months or so, but after that, well... maybe his boss should have a talk with him.

Sure...... But isn't selecting the Wassa theme highly questionable at best??? It''s listed under "W" for a reason. It's not only the end of the alphabet, it's truly the bottom of the barrel!!! There should really be a disclaimer attached to that theme as it can cause irreparable eye damage too! ;o)

Why no Wassa theme today?
Because I've got CLASS, that's why!

No, really... I'm sitting in a classroom, getting "trained", so I don't have access to the AQ servers.
Dang.

But fortunately, he can still read the AQ messages boards a lot more efficiently on his smartphone now because of the update a few days ago. So now he can post about why he's not causing more trouble than he is. *nodding*

Ahh.... I get it now.... I didn't realize my development machine still pointed to my I ♥ AQ graphic and I uploaded that to the server. Then you tried to change it back on the live server--and did!--so when I looked, I never saw a change, but you're stuck with the older CSS page.

Of course, if you updated the file in source control, I'd have discovered the changed file and could have merged it in on my system. ;o)
