RAINBOW'S END RV PARK, Livingston, TX 77351 
Feb. 11-17, 2012
Our week here at Escapees is over. Last year we were "stuck" here for 1.5 months!!! We had to wait for a part for our RV. This year, we planned ahead and the part arrived while we were here.  
We renewed our vehicle registrations, inspected both, and had our Equa-flex suspension equalizer replaced. Scott had noticed there was a crack in one.  It never seemed to get larger, but Scott was not comfortable continuing with it cracked. There are many RV's that don't even have this. The Equi-flex helps the RV keep a smooth ride, so things don't bounce around too much inside.

Onward Southwest! We'll be playing tourist in San Antonio.There are also quite a few DDD restaurants that  we may want to try out also.
COCA COLA made in Mexico: While in Jefferson, TX, we visited the "General Store". They had Coke that is made in Mexico. So what is the big deal?  Coke in the US is made with corn syrup. Coke made in Mexico is made with real sugar. Did we taste the difference? I felt it wasn't as "sickening" sweet as US Coke. But according to the Consumer Reports comparison, the testers felt the Mexican Cola was sweeter. If you pick up Kosher Coke, that is made with sugar.
The Mexican Coke is in a glass bottle & has a metal pop top (like a beer bottle), rather than a plastic screw top.

Gold Tone Reusable Keurig type brew cup:
Our rating 1 out of 5
Don't waste your money. We picked this up at the local supermarket. $8.00 ($12.00 on Amazon), so worth a try. The coffee drips through the filter too fast and makes a very weak/watery disgusting cup of "coffee".

Barksters dog treat crisps:
Our rating 5 out of 5. What others say
We are always looking for wheat free dog treats for Devin. He gets the itchies if he eats wheat. These treats are wonderful! All good ingredients, air puffed,so only 12 calories per piece. Devin has actually climbed on Scott's easy chair to try to get these treats out of the overhead cabinet!
These are available at Tractor Supply.
I have FINALLY finished all my hardback and paperback books. Of course, I could pick some up at the next RV Park, but for now, I have hundreds of books waiting to be read on my Kindle.

There are too many audio books to bother working my way through this. I will use Diane Yannick's review. She wrote is just as I felt...
"This book started with such promise. Pasquale was a great character and I would have enjoyed following his story. The Italian setting was lush and Dee Moray's story was interesting until it got crushed by all the random characters and story lines."
I did not bother finishing.
