Impromptu July 4th Float Stars in Cancelled Freedom Over Texas Festivities

by Dan Singer

Mayor Turner had already cancelled all Freedom Over Texas events yesterday — save for the fireworks — by the time the HOUSTON sign planted in Eleanor Tinsley Park got caught up in the flow of things and began drifting downstream, away from the Bud Light Beer Garden that it originally fronted. Despite the disorder, the letters managed to stay afloat during their time on the water, captured by Chronicle photographer Yi-Chin Lee. They ended up making landfall in the middle of the lawn: That grassy area was mostly submerged during prime time yesterday: Putting these amenities at odd angles as well: The “Houston” letter signs are floating away [Yi-Chin Lee] Photos: Yi-Chin Lee … Read More

Menopausal Years

by Holly

Menopausal Years coverMenopausal Years: The Wise Woman Way: Alternative Approaches for Women 30-90
Weed
1992

There is a 2002 edition of this book called “New Menopausal Years. You can weed that one too.

I’m 44 years old, so I’ll be making my way into this section of the library very soon. If this is what I find when I go looking for information, I will be very disappointed.

The table of contents reads like a horror show. It’s not reassuring at all! The section on depression reads “Step 0: Do Nothing. Welcome to the Dark.” The advice goes on with more steps that are a bit more reasonable, to be fair, but the author already lost me! The book is definitely very holistically-oriented, with a push to try herbal and other natural remedies in place of drugs. That’s just fine for a public library collection, but it still needs to be kept up to date. I graduated high school the year this was published and now I’m the target market 26 years later.

Everyone Ordered Out of Memorial Club Apartments’ Remaining Half, New Apartments Set To Rise in Its Place

by Dan Singer

Residents of the Memorial Club apartments at 955 Westcott St. now have 5 months left to beat it from the complex in order to make way for a new residential building that’s set to rise in its place. According to a letter that landlord Greystar sent out on June 11, the deadline to vacate is December 31. Up until then, the company “is engaging a relocation specialist” to assist tenants with their moves. The photo at top shows the apartment’s yard sign, with an arrow (since covered up) pointing across Westcott to where its leasing office once sat within the demolished eastern portion of the complex. Greystar tore that section down in 2014, about a year after buying both halves of the complex and announcing a 2-phase redevelopment plan for the land, to include 550 units spread across a pair of buildings. 297 of them are already housed across the street in the 6-story Elan Memorial Park building — pictured below — that the developer put up in 2016: Previously on Swamplot: Crews Have Begun Clubbing the Memorial Club Apartments by the Washington Roundabout; New Apartments Facing Washington Ave Roundabout Will Have Retail on the Ground Floor and Maybe a Trader Joe’s; A Trader Joe’s Coming to Washington Ave.?

JWST Delays

Since delays should get less likely closer to the launch, most astronomers in 2018 believed the expansion of the schedule was slowing, but by early 2020 new measurements indicated that it was actually accelerating.

Hotdog Redux

by Mary Kelly

new hamburger and hot dog cookbook

The New Hamburger & Hot Dog Cookbook
Roate
1975

Don’t settle for old hamburger and hot dog recipes. It’s time to upgrade to NEW and Improved. Note the awesome 1970s era cover. I was able to name the year of publication with just one glance. Evidently our author is the expert on all forms of hot dog cuisine. We featured an earlier hot dog cookbook on our site. Complete with not one, not two, but FOUR Hotdog Loaf recipes.

This book is evidently a culmination of her hotdog recipes with some lovely hamburger recipes as well. This cookbook isn’t illustrated, probably because half of these recipes probably should be exposed to human eyes. However, for those of you eager to expand your hotdog loaf recipe file, note her newest entry: JELLIED HOT DOG LOAF.

You’re Welcome.

England Beat New Zealand In Denver

by Curtis
By Elie Mpovie

For the first time in fourteen years, a Tier One rugby league international match was played on American soil, instead in Philadelphia like in 2004, the city of Denver hosted New Zealand and England at Broncos Stadium at Mile High. With the attendance of 19,320, this test match set an American record for a rugby league match, previously set in 2008. 

The match started with a bang as the Kiwis of New Zealand would lead 12-0 early with tries by Esan Marsters and Dallin Watene-Zelezniak. By the half-hour mark, England would score two tries as well coming from Ryan Hall and Elliot Whitehead. Gareth Widdop would miss the conversion, giving the Kiwis a 12-10 lead at the break. 

Altitude played a big part against New Zealand as England scored two fantastic tries from Whitehead and Jake Connor and two penalty goals coming from Widdop, all within a twelve minute span, as the game opened up to a 26-12 advantage. 

Take the jump to read more.
The Three Lions weren’t done there, Tom Makinson would score on international debut to extend to the England to twenty points with a try and New Zealand tried stopping the bleeding with a try of their own from Watene-Zelezniak. 32-18 to England at this point. John Bateman of England would wrap the test match and the Rugby League International Challenge trophy with a try on full-time, granting England a commanding 36-18 win. 

England 36 

Tries: Whitehead (2), Connor, Makinson, Bateman 
Penalties: Widdop (2/2) 
Conversion: Widdop (4/6) 

New Zealand 18 

Tries: Watene-Zelezniak (2), Marsters 
Conversions: Issako (3/3)

MLR Standings & Analysis: The Final Edition

by Curtis

Year one of the Major League Rugby regular season is in the books. There were some playoff spots up for grabs over the weekend. San Diego made sure they took third place by giving Glendale their first loss of the season. Utah made sure they made the playoffs with a win over Houston. Austin, NOLA, and Houston finished at the bottom of the standings.

If we match up the final standings with pre-season expectations it's obvious that Glendale and Seattle pretty much fulfilled expectations. It's also obvious that Houston was a big disappointment. GIven their long pre-season schedule and the fanfare surrounding the team they under-performed during the regular season. NOLA was also a slight disappointment. They had a lot of former Ohio Aviators players and it was thought that they might do better. A team that exceeded expectations was Utah. We've always said that with more time together they would do well but we didn't think they'd make the playoffs in year one.

You could come to the conclusion that all of the playoff teams were able to draw from a wide base of players (San Diego = Southern California, Seattle = British Columbia) while the three Red River teams might have diluted their own talent pools.

Take the jump to read more.
With their loss over the weekend Glendale failed to have a perfect record for the regular season. They, along with Seattle and San Diego, finished with winning records. The other four teams all finished with losing records. Glendale, Seattle, and San Diego also had a positive point differential.
