Yesterday, we put on a practice drill on the Light Rail line that simulated a terrorist attack. It is not a good idea for me to put any details in print, and published on the internet. However; it included the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Federal Transit Administration(FTA), Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and local first responders. All went well. The idea was to identify any deficiencies, and we did. I don't like to have to work on Sundays, but this was important. I have been in the business a long time, and looking forward to moving to my land in Colorado. July 7, 2010 will complete 39 years in transit. Did I say, “I’m not working out”?
I have been learning a lot about self sustainability from all my friends in west Texas and other places around the country. I have not started to build my home on my land, but have made some plan changes from what I’ve learned. Welcome Frann, and thanks for the comments and smile.


  1. Thanks Lou! I am sure with all your building talent and planning you will do fine. Colorado is beautiful but it has snow! I do not like snow as I am a recovering Yankee...I have been in Texas since 1979 and everytime I leave I can not wait to get back.

  2. Frann, Don't risk falling off the wagon. I hope to be able to aford to spend the winters away from the snow. Perhaps west Texas, Tarlengua area. I love the desert. I'm looking at land. I could build a "Tiny House" for the cold months.
