Been busy
« on: January 17, 2010, 09:12:50 AM »
I have been busy lately and not been contributing much here. Mostly a result of the holidays, winter, the weather, and life in general.
One thing I have been working on that may not interest many here is a small forum for Brazoria County, Texas. In looking for events and happenings here locally, I have found the local papers lacking, the major papers uninterested, and the web full of websites, all of them to be visited, info gathered, then assimilated in order to see what is happening. I decided to try to make a local forum for residents and visitors to get it all in one place. It may not work, but I will give it a shot! Take a look and browse around, it is new and needs work, but here it is-

So you decided on the phbb? Looks good so far.

Your link above needs checked,  it says "url=http://http:www.papawswrench.com/forum/index.php]Brazoria County Forum"

Are you going to put in a section for outsiders trying to find out about the county?

I never had much luck with phpbb, let me know how your experience goes.

Since I just revamped an old DB from papawswrench, that is the address. I will promote it as a stand alone forum.
Looks like I messed up the link! Will fix that ASAP.
Yes, the forum will be open for articles that might entice people to visit the county. We have a lot of history here and places to visit.

Much better link.  Do you folks have feral hogs? Hows the hunting?

Any land a poor retired disabled person could afford?

Will your cpanel install Wordpress? You could do the article on WP then link comments to a thread on the forum.

Sure do have feral hogs! I know a few guys just south of me that hunt them plenty. Hunting, fishing, etc. is pretty good here according to some friends of mine. I am neither a hunter nor a fisherman.

uthscsaedu, I know Sugarland well. How long since you lived there? It is much different from the way it was when I grew up. Back then there was not much there but Imperial Sugar. It has grown exponentially in the last 30 years.
I'm gonna make a guess here, uthscsaedu - Are you at UT Health Science Center, San Antonio?

Sounds good to me I'd like to retire to a place far from the hassles of the cities and such.

It's probably been more than 20 yrs since I've really "lived" in sugarland, although I go back to Houston every few months.
