Where can I find a place to host a baby shower in Houston, TX?
I had my daughters baby shower at Demers Banquet Hall. They have a new private room which they said fits up to about 45 guests. It was really nicely decorated, and we all had a great time. Their main ballroom is also very gorgeous if you are having a large number of guests.
Who should I contact if I want to build a factory in Houston, TX?
Contact the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) regarding wastewater remediation among other emissions-related issues. Depending on what the plant will produce in waste material they will advise with regard to permits and equipment/facility requirements/specifications. If EPA permits are needed a TCEQ rep should advise although depending on the scale of your operation a state permit should be all you'll require, and Texas standards will either meet or exceed EPA mandates. It wouldn't hurt to find an EHS (Environmental Health and Safety) consultant for advice, just make sure they have current licensing and are up front about their fees. Arrange a meeting with your plant's engineering director to discuss plant operations with an EHS consultant AND TCEQ represenatives so you can insure everything will be above-board.
Your insurance carrier will recommend whether or not your assembly line equipment is UL ceritfied, local code may not necessarily require this. Factory Mutual is a major vendor and typically will require UL listing/certification among other things, arrange a meeting with your company's legal represenative and a Factory Mutual agent to discuss.
Make sure with your site selection that there are no restrictions governing the use of the property, especially if the plant will operate in an existing structure. You will need a team of engineers, lawyers, procurement/supply chain specialists, etc. working on your side to assemble your operatiions scope so that all the bases are covered. You may have to recruit the assistance of senior management in your organization to facilitate much of this, as there could be things like tax abatements, incentives, etc. that might offset some of the start-up costs involved in something like this that will inevitably create local jobs.

Are there any breeds of dogs that are banned in Los Angeles CA or Houston TX?
Neither city has a pit bull or breed ban. However, Houston is trying to decide whether to regulate/register certain breeds, or not.
Houston sends most pit bulls to a pb rescue, as they don't like to adopt them out of their SPCA. Los Angeles SPCA is full of them, and they do adopt them out.
Los Angeles has a new mandatory spay/neuter. I can link you to the details if you want.

What are some good colleges for Nursing Degree in Houston Tx?
If you're looking to just get your Associates Degree in Nursing to become an RN, then it would be much cheaper for you to go to a community college.

Everything is sold individually, not by the truckload but there are 2 Conn's clearance centers in the Houston area where you can get appliances that are returns, repos, discontinued, out of box products, etc. One of the stores is on Stella Link in Houston and the other is in Baytown.
How do i get from (houston,tx) to (katy,tx) on metro?
Try Houston Metro's web site. Pull up the map. I don't think the bus goes all the way to Katy.
Note. The map is 16 megs, so you'd better have broadband.
EDIT: I haven't heard that Katy has their own bus system.
There ARE Park & Ride buses that go to Katy. The Kingsland Park & Ride is on Kingsland between Mason and Westgreen. Check out bus schedules 221, 229, and 298 .The Grand Parkway Park & Ride is on the north side of Grand Parkway and Katy Freeway. Check out bus schedule 222. Mind you, the outbound buses don't run between roughly 8:30AM and 3:30PM. the Grand Parkway bus doesn't run between 7:30 and 3:30 outbound.
How bad is the traffic and rush hour travel in Houston, TX?
Wow, that's one heck of a haul. The previous advice of trying to get to work by 7AM is a good one. Traffic inbound on 59 from Humble is awful.
Have you considered someplace like Pearland instead? It is only about 12 miles, instead of over 25 miles.
Only chartered flights for gamblers and a small commuter airline go there. (Laughlin NV.) Sun Country Airlines only goes to a few cities and is mainly for gambling junkets.
The closest airport with major carriers is Las Vegas. Take a bus or rent a car from there.
Look up info about Laughlin NV. You might be able to get there by staying at a casino for the night. You also might be able to get free transportation from Vegas from one of the casinos.
What is the average price for a hypnosis session in Houston, TX?
Seeing how I'm a Houston hypnotherapist, I will give you my own price. $95 for the first session (considering that you don't have a coupon) and then $75 for each subsequent session (again, considering that you don't have a coupon.
Hypnotherapy session can go up to $150 for some therapists, per session, so it's always good to do your research (which you are!). Hypnotherapy programs, like CDs or mp3s, are usually less expensive then in-person sessions, and you don't have to pay for more than one session.
Hope that helps!
What are the best and safest places to live in Houston, TX?
If you are a female, you need to be alert and aware of your surroundings at all times. Trust your gut feelings. Is there a lot of crime in Houston? Well, look at the supermarkets at night and you will see security guards (some are off duty HPD) carrying guns. When you starting watching the news in Houston, you will notice that almost daily, there is a shooting (often in a part of town called the southwest). Good places to live? Depends on where you are going to school or working. Do not depend on the realtor or apt finding agency to tell you what the drive time is. Do the "commute" yourself during rush hour and find out firsthand. "Inside the 610 loop" locations will often save your drive time. But look at the neighborhood-- if you see young men loitering during the work day or ppl fixing cars in the street, NOT a good sign. Good towns to live in (near or completely surrounded by Houston): W. University Place, Bellaire, Sugarland, Pearland. Good neighborhoods: Meyerland, River Oaks.
It is not against the law to use airsoft guns but unless your guns are clear you may spook your neighbors into calling the cops. If you really want to play check out this website
I also live in the houston area and I use these websites to see when the next game will be. Most games posted there are pretty big, at least 20 to 30 people show up. They host alot of games at a paintball field in Pearland called Paintball Zone (it is on Dixie Farm Road )

where can I get moving boxes for free in houston tx?
I would be careful using free boxes! I have been burned from using free boxes that I found at a grocery store. I ended up with roaches! The boxes looked clean enough but there were cockroach eggs inside the walls of the boxes.
After a year of exterminators bills, I now spend the money and get my moving boxes online. I buy brand new boxes but there are websites that sells clean used moving boxes. It is not so expensive (the exterminator cost more) The boxes are shipped to your home for free. It is worth the piece of mind.
I worked in Houston, TX for the first 11 mons of the year and moved to LA, CA for December? How to do tax?
you will file a California part year return on form 540 PY. This is available from the Franchise Tax Board's website. [FTB is the CA taxing agency.]
you'll need to do your federal taxes first.
i do not know of any online filing site that supports this form, especially one that is free.

What are some good places in Houston, TX to learn about Hispanic culture?
AYE!! H-TOWN IS MY CITY!
Houston has a lot of hispanics, it really depends on what area you live in, in houston. I got to a black school & we even celebrate hispanic culture & history. Try "Clover Leaf" ,majority hispanic.
The best part of houston for hispanics in houston is the Galena Park ISD area (beltway 8 area). I've been there, its like 85% hispanic & very civilized area & they have nice houses. I loved it, learn a lot there.
Medical checkups and health cares normally needed for a 2-month old baby in Houston TX for a year ?
It is "suggested" that you take newborns in I think every like 3 months. But its not "required". My daughter was perfectly healthy her first year so I never took her in. First time I did was for her 1 year checkup. You do not HAVE to do shots either. That is a personal decision made by the parent. Im not giving my daughter any until she is 2 so I can monitor better any ill-effects it may cause her - ie: autism etc.
So really, it is at the discretion of the parent how often you take in a baby. Some ppl seem to forget this and think you HAVE to take them in. You don't.
Where can I buy a full range of wholesale candy in Houston,TX?
Nassau Candy Distributors. I used to work for them and highly recommend them. They supply Dylan's Candy Bar, Sweet Factory, all the big chains.
Speak to Butch Hurley at 516-433-7100 and I know you'll get a good deal. They use refrigerated carriers to get down to Texas so your candy is perfect.
Where can I get a good makeover from a professional make up artist in Houston, TX?
There are beauty consultant in every mall around town. In Dillard's, Macy's, and other department stores at the cosmetic counter.
I'm sure there are plenty of independent make-up artist too, more expensive.
My beauty consultant is located at the Channel counter at Dillard's in First Colony Mall. She works evening hours and weekends.
I know it's a little outside the city, but she is the best.
She will help you find that natural looking combination that works in you everyday lifestyle.
How do I find university recuritment agent who can help my son's college application in Houston, TX?
Universities do not have recruiting agencies. What you ask for is supposed to be the job of the counselors in his high school. The process is a bit confusing. To weed out those too stupid or unmotivated to figure it out on their own.
Your going to get alot of answers on this one. Everyone is going to say where they live is the best.
In all honesty I would go for the surrounding cities of Houston rather than Houston itself...Katy, The Woodlands, Kingwood, Sugar Land, Pearland, etc..
I grew up in SW Houston but have since moved to the Sugar Land area and I like it much better. But that's just my opinion.
what airport is closest to downtown Houston, TX and also, some hotels that are close to urban night clubs ?
Houston Hobby is closest to downtown. I generally stay at the Double Tree Hotel downtown. It is very nice and within walking distance of Baker Street (the Bourbon St. of Houston). The entire street is lined with bars and clubs (too many to list...but they are all fun!).
What laws and regulations govern hypnotherapy practice in Houston, TX ?
Unfortunately, there are none. No regulation and no direct laws, it is typical in The USA to not have either. You may bring any complaints to the Attorney General's office and they will try to handle any disputes.
go see jennifer at beautique in rice village. she is clean, fast and precise. i know so many people that go to her. she is very professional and will do a great job!
just so you know, she is very fast BUT that is what you want. it's waxing, so it's not going to be like a relaxing spa experience. the faster it's over, the better. take 3 tylenol 30 mins before your appt and you'll be fine. once you get waxed, you'll never go back to shaving.
yes it does. Houston is a very humid city. In the summers it rains or thunderstorms about once a day. It's also on the gulf coast so there are hurricanes. However, the fall and winters in Houston are absolutely beautiful and make up for the hot, humid summers. You get used to the daily storms in the summer.
I think you will like it in Houston. We have so many great places and things to do here for kids.
If you have a choice, go to Wunderlich rather than Shotwell. There are less trouble makers.
Yes, we have a large Asian community, especially Vietnamese as our weather is very similar to Vietnam's.
