Ranch Needed!!!

by Morson

Anyone interested in having 2 australians stay with them over the new year period for a week or 2. We are wanting to experience the cowboy way of life, by working on a ranch and getting our hands dirty.

my email is peterson_84@hotmail.com
please email me if interested and we can work something out.

thanks

Re: Ranch Needed!!!

by bocmaxima

Sorry to burst your bubble, but you have to pay to do this, and it's very expensive. The fact is that there are more people wanting to "experience" ranch life than actually have the experience necessary to really do it and, thus, there's a thriving industry of "dude" ranches, where people can play cowboy for a few days. Note that "dude" essentially means "city guy".
I would think that you would have better luck with this in Australia than here.
Houston isn't necessarily the best place to look for this. Texas is a very diverse state and Houston, particularly the eastern part, looks more like Louisiana than what you may have seen in movies. Therefore, it's not as ranch-oriented as the rest of the state.
If you really are interested in this, just Google "texas dude ranch" and I'm sure that you'll find plenty.

Exactly...I've lived in Houston and Dallas for 25 years and have yet to see a dude ranch that you can stay at for free. Sorry...Texas is portrayed so differently in movies! Houston has plenty of entertainment but it's about as ranch-style as LA or NYC.

Something you might try is to contact the Texas Job service and see if you could get on as a hired hand for a couple of weeks. www.twc.state.tx.us

Would they have to get a work visa for that?

Re: Ranch Needed!!!

by counsel14

A work visa (green card) is essential to work in the US if you're a foreign national. it is a six month waiting period right now for new work visas. As to the ranch working question, sorry but there are no ranches that will hire on for a week or two for foreign nationals without a green card, and with one, they tend to request a six month commitment nowadays. There are dude ranches available for a very large fee whereby you can play cowboy. Most are in the big bend area.

im not actually looking for a place to work for money, i was thinking of a trade deal... my services for accomodation. I was hoping to experience actual country life not so much the hollywood movies perception. if anyone knows a friend of a friend etc that has a ranch or farm or whatever you call it and would be happy to take us on id love to hear from them.

Travel Tips for Houston

Being and Nothingness in Houston

by yooperprof

The Rothko Chapel is the one building that is indispensible in Houston. Its blankness, its modesty, its calm all make it the most un-Texan building in Texas. The Chapel is the gift of philanthropists John and Dominique Menil, and is located in the Montrose neighborhood. It was designed by Philip Johnson to be a non-denomination interfaith chapel. Inside are seven unforgettable chromatic "panels" by contemporary American painter Mark Rothko. The Chapel is a place for spiritual reflection and quietude, in the midst of one of America's most money and status-driven cities.

Astronauts hangouts in the Clear Lake area

by XenoHumph

The Johnson Space Center, where NASA astronauts train, is located in the Clear Lake area. There is consequently the highest concentration in America of astronauts in this little SW corner of Houston. So, if you are interested in seeing an astronaut, for whatever it could bring you to see one sipping on a beer, there are 3 places where they like to hang out.
Frenchie's Italian Kitchen: a popular Italian restaurant (see my restaurant tips). Lots of dedicated picts of astronauts and crew on the walls.
The Outpost Tavern: a bar I have never been to, so no opinion on what they serve! Traditionaly, astronaut crews have a party there before going up in space.
Both places are located at the corner of NASA Road One and El Camino Real.
Finally, lots of people working at NASA, including astronauts, go to a pub I like very much, Boondoggles (see my Restaurant tips) .

Fantastic Margarittas

by MJA78 about The Don'Key

A word of caution: This place looks like a dump especially on the exterior. Not a chain or a touristy type of place. However they have been in business for a long time.

With that aside. This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. They have the STRONGEST margaritas I have ever had in a restaurant. The salsa Verde (a creamy blend of green tomatoes, avocado, cilantro and sour cream with a little heat) that comes complimentary with chips is fantastic. All items are reasonably priced and the portions are more than adequate. Try the Queso Cozumel. A mix of melted queso, pico de gallo and grilled shrimp rolled in 4 flour tortillas prepared in front of you along side of your table.

Gourmet food but too noisy

by XenoHumph about Gravitas

This restaurant has gourmet food AND big portions. Our meal was excellent and the service is very good. The kitchen is open to the main room so you can see the cooks which is fun. So it pains me to have to put some negativity in this review. But, it was so noisy that i couldn't hear myself speak and you have to shout to try to have a conversation. The noise simply comes from everyone's conversation as I guess the walls and ceiling/floor are very reflective. They need to put in some carpets!! I also went a Saturday night, and the restaurant was full. Maybe a week night would have been more quiet. Cigarette smoke from the bar drifted in the main room which was annoying as well.
Reservation recommended. The first courses are huge and I was already full after my risotto (delicious). The mussels and fries I had as entrée were excellent and my friends had steak, chicken and lamb and all loved it. We had great wines. The wine list is extensive and includes a high-end list where bottles cost more than $100.

Water Wall - Great at night!

by MarvintheMartian

The Williams Wall of Water is located in the Galleria area of Uptown. In fact just locate the Williams Tower - the largest skyscaper in the Galleria area with the pyramid pointy top and you'll find the Wall of Water adjacent with a large lawn in front.

It's an impressive structure - I'm not quite sure why it's here - but it is impressive nevertheless!
