Broke and out of gas

Links, Thoughts, and Open Thread
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2008/8/20 9:00:28 (897 reads)

I'm sitting here at work, procrastinating from beginning my work day. I'm tired, broke, and just about out of gas - both literally and figuratively.

I found out Saturday about the proposed natural gas drilling in my neighborhood, so it's consumed a lot of my time and energy researching that and talking to my neighbors.

My neck hurts like hell. I think I slept on it funny Sunday night. Mamask8z tried to help me, but it needs more work, and I seem to annoy her when I ask. Fair is fair, I guess, because I haven't done much for her website, either. Funny how that works.

Got paid last Friday, but after catching up on bills and buying school clothes, I'm wiped out again. This morning I went fishing in the change jar for quarters to pay toll and maybe get a snack for lunch today.

The car's gas tank is sitting one bar above empty, and my credit card is maxed out. I made it to work today without a fuel warning, but I'll probably have to put some more in to make it home. I've got a $50 birthday check in my wallet that I can cash at lunch time. Kind of sucks to use birthday money for that, but oh well.

Work is complicated. It's hard to explain what I've been up to, because I teeter on the verge of non-understanding pretty much every day. Let me just say that whoever the accountant was that invented allocated accruals is one sadistic sumbitch.

Well, I guess I'd better get to it.

Have a great day!

Barnett Shale Gas Drilling In Lewisville - Near Central Park.

Oil and Gas
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2008/8/16 23:40:00 (12708 reads)

This article is old, and not all that accurate. For more of the latest information, see our Oil and Gas category. The neighborhood eventually formed a group called CPANA, which reached a deal with Cherokee Horn for some additional money, and some concessions for the protection of the neighborhood. The currently mentioned drill site is actually on the Southeast corner of Corporate and Valley Parkway.

This is a developing story. At this point, we want to get as much information out here as quickly as we can, so we can begin to ask the important questions - as a neighborhood, and as a city.

A neighbor came to me today and informed me that in the northeastern part of my precinct, folks had been approached by a drilling company, Cherokee Horn Energy, LP with an offer to lease the minerals under their property.

Click to view Central Park MapMy neighbor heard from one of his other neighbors that the drilling would be done "behind the wooded area" in Central Park, which is Lewisville's little urban forest area, surrounding Timber Creek.



Cities all over the Western side of DFW have seen drilling in recent years in a massive natural-gas bearing formation known as the "Barnett Shale", approximately two miles below us, and ending somewhere around I-35E to the East.

There are several problems here:

Friday Open Thread

Links, Thoughts, and Open Thread
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2008/8/15 8:57:28 (1194 reads)

Goal ThermometerIt's Friday, It's Payday, It's raining outside (finally), and it's tax-free weekend.

Tonight, Rick Noriega will be in Southern Denton County for a fundraiser.

Tomorrow morning, is a community garage sale, and the Lewisville Senior Center in Memorial Park.

There's still trouble brewing between Russia and Georgia, and our government is casting its lot with Georgia. (We love the underdog)
