  1. Plano is not considered to be in East Texas.  It's a burb on the north side of Dallas and that section of the state is referred to as "North Texas".  The building he refers to is 150,000 sq ft which the size of the average Costco and they will need minimal parking compared to a Costco so total amount of land required is about 5 or 6 acres, meaning it could be located almost anywhere.  The power grid in Texas is not as strained some other states but there are times that certain businesses and schools are required to cut back or close due to the grid being maxed out, generally in the summer heat.  Even with the high tech, this facility will consume an enormous amount of electricity which in Texas is around 50% generated by fossil fuels so this place will be a major polluter due to energy consumption.  Even China has put the brakes on manufacturing fairy dust due to it's waste of natural resources and burden on the environment.  I hope this project implodes on a colossal scale in the very near future with losses running around 68 million bucks, leaving them with a couple of million to get out of the country and try again in some other country.

  2. Pollyanna was released by the Classics in the fall of 1966.  It reached #85 on the Cashbox 100 charts.  Due to another group already using the name "Classics", this group changed their name to Dennis Yost and The Classics IV right after this release.  Amazing similarity to recordings by The Four Seasons.  Also note the song was written and produced by Grammy winner Joe South before he became famous.



  3. Well, it was on this date (his birthday) 11 years ago that Tiremonkey2000 dropped the line above about going on a 4 day vacation and he never logged in again.  He must have had a killer vacation.... I hope he didn't die from it.

  4. My favorite Donna Summer track.  The vid is live clips but the audio is the original studio 45rpm single.  For best results, play the vinyl on a high end system at near max volume.  You may want to learn sign language beforehand because if you play it right, you will need the sign language afterwards.
