We don't think it is the "right" way...just the best way......I would think Southern CA has some good points though.:D

the type of music, but also the texas attitude, i guess. . . "let it be on earth as it is in texas" isn't exactly an endearing slogan to me. connotates braggartism and all those chest-puffing stereotypes about everything being bigger in texas. at least that's my view; i must admit that i've not been to texas in a very long time.


The funny thing about Texas is that it only takes a few days of driving around to pick up that particular attitude...

The sheer vastness of the land and the spirit of the people goes hand in hand with the territory... The near fact is, most everything is bigger in Texas...

The thing is it is not an attitude that we feel we are better then anyone it is more of a self pride.

Little known fact that the Texas State Capital is the only Capital building allowed to be larger then the U.S. Capital.

I hear you Chris...There never, ever was any chest beating by any one, of any age in Texas... I felt more like I was on a very talented sports team and every one is trying their best...all contributing to the effort in the everyday walk of life...

Since there is no real snow or deep freeze winter in Texas, there is great potential for consistent productivity...continu​ous activity year round... and with air conditioning practically everywhere, work is always a pleasure...

In Texas, we competed against ourselves, to improve our skills, and be more productive... I have left very good memories in Texas... Some day I might consider continuing my retirement there...

Put it a lot better then I could, but that's about what I meant ;)

We have the only state flag that is allowed to fly at the same height as the ol glory, also a little known fact.
