So, I found out today, that thanks to my hometown – Sugar Land, Texas – it is now the most racially diverse county in the United States and even is a model America for the future.
The traffic there sucks, so does that come with the future of America?
I hope not. We need more public and faster ways of transportation. Every year when I venture back home for Christmas, there are too many cars on Highway 6 and it takes at least thirty minutes to get from my house to the mall (at night when no one is around, I can get from my house to the mall in twelve minutes).
For the most part, the article names Fort Bend – a country in which the city of Sugar Land resides about 110,000 and in my opinion, rivals that of Harris County – the most diverse county in America.
Sugar Land, Missouri City, Needville, Greatwood, Rosenberg, Richmond, Stafford and Cinco Ranch are all part of the Fort Bend County.

It’s December 3rd up here in Raiderland and here at Texas Tech, we like to throw ourselves a good ole-fashioned ceremony to welcome the month of giving, rejoicing and most importantly enjoying the time spent with family and friends.
If you’re from here, you may already know what I’m alluding to. If you’re not, well, then listen up because: Red Raiders, if you’re not in Lubbock and wish you could be here to see the amazing 55th Annual Carol of Lights Ceremony, well then I have a surprise for you.
You can now watch it live, via livestream! The live broadcast starts at 6:30 P.M. CST and will last until the tree is lit.
If this is your first time or if you’ve seen them all, come be apart of Raiderland for a night – we’ll be glad to extend the hospitality.
Tis the season 🙂
If you don’t already know, this is Shiner Holiday Cheer, “an Old World Dunkelweizen brewed with Texas peaches and roasted pecans.” I couldn’t have put it better myself. I found out about this beer in 2011, but ever since it’s release in the winter of 2010, they had problems keeping up with production and had a shortage on their hands up here in the Lubbock area. We haven’t had any problems since 2011, which is great – because now I don’t have to buy enough to drink year-round; well I would if I could.
