I love Texas. I have lived in the Texas towns of Dumas, Amarillo, Longview, Huntsville, Seabrook, Magnolia, Houston and presently Bellaire, which is a small town completely surrounded by Houston. I have friends and family from Paris to McAllen, and I hope to make the hill country my final home years from now. Texas is a big state with terrain as varied as the people who call it home.

10 Texas facts:
  • Texas comes from the Hasinai Indian word tejas meaning friends or allies.
  • Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio are three of the top ten most populous cities in the United States.
  • Austin is considered the live music capital of the world.
  • El Paso is closer to Needles, California than it is to Dallas.
  • The King Ranch in Texas is bigger than the state of Rhode Island.
  • More land is farmed in Texas than in any other state.
  • The state's cattle population is estimated to be near 16 million.
  • More wool comes from the state of Texas than any other state in the United States.
  • The armadillo is the official state mammal.
  • Texas has the best Mexican food in the world. (O.K. That may be an opinion...)
