Raise your glass at 3:00 (Central Time, of course, as God intended) to toast the health and wealth of the only state in the nation which used to be its own country...the mighty Republic of Texas! Included in that toast will be reverent honor to the memory of those brave delegates who gathered at Washington-on-the-Brazos and risked their own lives to declare their liberty.

Happy Birthday, Texas! We don't have words for how much we love you. And for my parents, who just bought ANOTHER Honda Goldwing, this is for you:
Imagine how much more riding you could do down here where the weather is beautiful and the roads go on forever...
