You really miss Continental...........you are just one of many TXtransplant.   How about the long term CO employees who were forced to move to Chicago or resign.  If you are now a United employee you are just a number.The new head of United [Munoz] is attempting to install the same ideas that CO's Gordon Bethune did.We flew from Sydney to San Francisco in what was called Business first.  Is a middle seat in a row of four aft facing seats Business First?  Not quite.  The coach type seat did recline however.  If you rolled over hopefully you were not close to kissing your seat mate.A  round trip flight from Newark to Buenos Aires on an old dilapidated 757 was not much better.Hope they turn it around with this new Polaris class they have implemented. 



@calguy:

Surprisingly the airline I've been most impressed with recently is Delta.

And I can't believe I just said that. Lol

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, but the memories you have of your Grandfather are amazing!

76 yrs of marriage - I'd love to know their "secret"...

Hugs to you (and scolding vibes to the dog!).

With expected temps in the low 30s Friday morning, I will NOT have to get out in that, and instead, can stay in bed under the warm heating blanket.

Luke 1:30-31  And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.

Found dog across from Creekwood Middle School. He has no collar, but is very sweet and well behaved. I'm hoping someone knows who he belongs to.

Ok, please humor me:

First, if Carrier is going to replace w/ robots these jobs are not manufacturing jobs....they are assembly jobs.

Let's dissect with some assumption:

Core unit of the Carrier residential/light commercial condenser is a Copeland scroll compressor.  Likely, although they are "produced" in the USA the bearings, hardware and stampings are either done in Mexico or China. This is also a bought item from Emerson Climate Control...who has mfg. in Mexico.

Second, even though they may bend aluminum tube and solder copper at the Indpls. factory the source of this metal is likely again, overseas.

Lastly, the circuitry including the wiring and control boards are also from an outside source because EPA regulations on caustics such as mercury, cyanides and acids cost too much to manufacture domestically.

This is exactly why we have such a trade deficit in the USA.  Manufactured in the USA still means that 40 percent plus of the components needed for the job are imported. And this today is our trade deficit.

Until we can actually "manufacture" wholly we will remain at the mercy of import tariffs, production controls and currency volatility outside of this nation.

I have seen, and worked in machinery production for more than ten years and this is again, another example of us not employing CYA. I am also originally from that area of Indianapolis.

Carrier will be done in five years and will move anyways.  It happened in Indy in the 90's when Zenith/RCA was eventually purchased by LG (Korea) and shut down their productions and were gone.

Hometown example......Goodman Mfg., the largest family owned HVAC residential manufacturer of components (Jersey Village/Houston) is now owned by Daikin Group (Japan) and have been for the past two years.

And guess what's not made here anymore...... .......Goodman.


@TXtransplant:


Goodman is made in the USA and has always been and I just found out they are now building the largest equipment manufacturing plant in all of houston off of 290 northwest Houston. Now Daiken is another line who yeas now does own them but the goodman line will continue to be made in the USA.

There is also the revolving restaurant on top of the Sheridan (?) In the Bush Intercontinental Airport.  The view is just fair, but nice.


@Retired_Engineer: I think the Sheridan is a good place to dine.  Back in my active days, say in my dating days many maaany moons ago I had my first dinner date at the ExxonMobil Bldg Downtown (The Petroleum Club} I think it was on the 43 floor and one could see the entire city. It was at the time, then the tallest bldg and truly a rooftop type of restaurant. I don't think the youngsters in here would know about it anyways...

City,views, rooftops and food suitable for an anniversary are not  Houston.  However, nice downtown location with good food and a good city view, Robert Del Grande's The Grove, Tillman Fertitta'sVic and Anthony's or Pappa's Steakhouse.

Great food, charming service in beautiful settings with not great views outside. Marco Wiles' DaMarco or Hugo Ortega's' Hugo's.  When in hot water I take my wife to Hugo's, especially for Sunday brunch.
