There is some extremely important information contained in this Forum, and still occasional posts in a couple of the big threads.

In this modern world, why do we have to have more, faster, bigger, louder, all the time?

What doess it hurt if this sits and waits for that one important question or answer?

You are far wiser than I in these matters than I ole sage.... You make very excellent points... I withdraw my narrow minded comments...

"In a modern world":  Yes, I am constantly bothered by the fact that we in North America tear down our older (classier) buildings etc. to put up more "modern" (uglier) ones...  word

Well, I hope that at least you have learned your lesson.

Yet you have single-handedly resuscitated a worthy Forum.

Others need be neither green with envy, nor purple with rage.

Rather they should join in the fertile field of repartee.

And personally, I must (ca) tell you that I approve.

In appreciation, the next time you come here, or I go there, we must (ca) dine together to celebrate.

Actually, I am in concord with every word you say.

So let's keep things juicy around here, and never welch on our deals.

We shall continue to plant the seeds of information, and thence reap the harvest of our efforts.

For after all, we are not a bunch of goofs, but rather a group who shall flower, never leaving our goals to wither away on the vine.

For we have stamen power, and shall not graft insidious concepts onto our intended purposes.

I, for one, shall cultivate quality, pruning with care.

Carry on.

I work with a guy from Russia and he says the best jokes in Russian have raisins in them.  His analogy is this:  in old Russia, people used to sell/trade home made bread for other staples.  Someone found out that if they dumped a handful of raisins in the dough they could sell it as raisin bread for much more than the standard price of a loaf.

So, the jokes that contain a raisin - a twist on reality or an unexpected ending are more humorous and valued than the standard fare.

For me, the internet presents a lot of regular loaves of bread, but these forums are worth reading through all the posts for those raisins that pop up from time to time.  It's the raisins that keep me coming back.

well, this website is "raisin the bar"

http://raisinthebar.net/



book your hotel here and save:

 http://www.texasescapes.com/TexasGulfCoastTowns/RaisinTexas/ RaisinTexas.htm

here's a brief history of raisin, texas:


1889: established as a stop on the Gulf, Western Texas and Pacific Railroad from Victoria to Beeville.

1892: The town gets a post office. The railroad called the station Lucy, but the postal authorities rejected it - wanting something more distinctive. The name Raisin was chosen to honor a local rancher (J. K. Reeves) who had tried to grow grapes. Judging by the name - it wasn't a successful venture.

The nearby German settlement of Coletoville took an interest in Raisin - probably due to the depot. C. T. Friedrichs, built a gin, and a man named Kohl built a store. Frederichs was the first postmaster and Kohl the second - serving from 1901 until 1914

1914: Post office closes

1930: The American Railway Express office, closes and Southern Pacific discontinues passenger service - a result of a drop in passengers from the opening of highway 59.

The population of the Raisin-Coletoville area has remained at about fifty persons from the early 1900s to the present
