Neil, I already found out about those new little boxes on another forum... seems to take longer, I think--- but it's ok; we don't have Dial-up, so ours is pretty fast anyway. Are you already busy working on the Next Article? or are you taking a Break??!--- I wouldn't blame you if you did! I'm sure each one takes a bit of Time to do; we all appreciate you doing it!
Lee, I used to live in McAllen, Tx, which is in the Rio Grande Valley, just like Brownsville... that same brother of mine lived there for a number of years too; we also liked to go to their beach there sometimes, as it was void of all the tourist-stuff there--- just plain 'beach', nice & quiet... They also have a great Zoo, which was built to separate the animals with very few bars or cages--- love it... we used to take our kids there quite a bit! Since it's on the tip of TX, you can go to where the River meets the Gulf; did you ever do that?? Once in college, I was in a Marine Zoology class, & we went there for 'a lab'... we had a cool professor, & we all swam across that area of the Rio Grande where the width wasn't too wide--- we were 'Wetbacks'!
