Actual inscription on the Historical marker

OTT HOTEL
Built to capitalize on oil boom prosperity, The OTT Hotel became a
Liberty landmark. The regional economy in the early 20th century
focused on trade, timber and agriculture. The discovery of large oil
fields. Including Batson (15miles NE) and south Liberty (4 miles S.)
brought great activity to Liberty as the nearest rail connection, and
many new buildings went up, including restaurants, general stores and
this railroad hotel.
Louisiana native John Joshua Ott (1867-1939) and his wife Sallie
Wiggins Ott (1874-1963) of San Jacinto county hired contractor Elza
Burch to build the hotel. Completed in late 1928 adjacent to the Texas &
New Orleans railroad tracks and very near the depot. The Ott Hotel was
well positioned to sever train passengers and was known as a
Drummer Hotel. Named for the traveling salesmen of the day. Its
location was also ideally suited for automobile tourists on the Old
Spanish Trail (later State Highway 3 and U.S. Highway 90). As well as
those with business in the nearby liberty county courthouse.
The hotel’s original design included 50 rooms in an L-shaped building
footprint, with community baths in the middle of the long halls. Dining
room and parlor space were later converted into additional rooms. A
sign painted on the bricks on the side along the railroad attracted new
arrivals. This two-story brick building features paired windows and has
a prominent four-bay front porch with tapered wood columns, A
low-pitch roof and brick detailing. Craftsman-style exposed rafter tails
outline the porch and the entire building. Several managers operated
the hotel, and the property remained in the Ott family until 2002  when
Mr. & Mrs. Mc Cain purchased the hotel.

Bad boy Charlie Sheen does it again
 

The big apple home of the New York Knicks and the Statue of Liberty among other things but this is where Charlie Sheen left his mark for the nth time. Trashing his hotel suite at the Plaza Hotel Sheen was apparently mad having discovered that his wallet was missing. At the very least he had Denise Richards and his two daughters witnessing the action. After the commotion that Sheen started, hotel security called the police to handle situation. Arriving at the scene they saw a naked Sheen on his room drunk and described as being emotionally disturbed. As if this was not enough Sheen was reportedly with a prostitute at the time of the thrashing. The prostitute who was found in the hotel room closet hiding and was afraid for her life as she recounts how Sheen was in a fit of rage. After everything was put in order the police gave Sheen two options either he goes in jail or find treatment in which Sheen chose the latter. You could be surprise at how Sheens antics doesn’t even affect his career as he is still earning a hefty 2 million per episode on the hit TV series Two and a Half Men.

T.I.’s wife involved in possession of ecstasy
 

Even though the rapper was cleared of drug possession after he was arrested along with his wife last month, T.I.’s problems won’t go away. His wife Tameka Cottle will be charged by the Los Angeles District Attorney with possession of ecstasy. It was in September when police pulled over the couple and smelled residues of marijuana in the car which they also found small amounts of ecstasy. The charges could very well land Cottle in jail for one year. Drug charges were dropped for T.I. because he’d be returning back to jail on violating probation for the same incident. He was on probation after spending 10 months in jail for possession of federal weapons. This led to another decision by a judge in Georgia to disregard the probation after a failed drug test and his subsequent arrest. The trip back to jail would cost him 11 months behind bars. T.I. or Clifford Joseph Harris Jr. in real life was born in Atlanta, Georgia with other monikers such as T.I.P and Rubberband Man. He usually counts Diddy, Jay-Z, Young Buck, Young Jeezy and B.G.as his closest friends in the business.  His most notable achievement was with his second single Whatever You Like soaring from number 71 to number 1 in a week’s time on the Billboard Hot 100.

Can you sync Outlook Calendars with Google Calendar?
 

Today I have been researching ways to sync Outlook Calendars with Google Calendars.

Apparently they way Google Sync works is that you can only sync the default calendar from Outlook.

There are a few options:

http://www.syncmycal.com/

http://www.goosync.com/

http://oggsync.com/index.php/documentation-for-outlook-add-in/

It’s a third party tool that allows bi-directional syncing and multi Google calendars. Didn’t tried it though…

The download link: http://oggsync.com/desktop/OggSyncDesktop4208.exe

http://www.downloadsquad.com/2009/04/22/sync-outlook-and-multiple-google-calendars-with-remote-calendars/

http://www.downloadsquad.com/2009/04/22/sync-outlook-and-multiple-google-calendars-with-remote-calendars/

What is Sunbird?

At this point we are going to try Windows Live, only the email component, to sync the calendar. It is supposed to allow syncing of different calendars, and the non-standard calendar.

If this doesn’t work we may have to resort to using Google Calendars.

Anna Nicole Smith moving forward
 

The playboy model who was apparently killed by a drug overdose in 2007 was with help that led to her death. Her ex boyfriend by the name of Howard K. Stern and a psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevic was found guilty of conspiring and giving the model the drugs for three years following Smiths death. The whole verdict was centered around the reason that the two conspirators help maintain the dependency of Smith to drugs to keep her intact with her inner circle and made her think she was in control. This when in fact it was clear that Smith was trying to stay clean at a rehab center. It includes the two coming up with numerous prescriptions under false names and directly furnishing the drugs. When you look at it makes sense as it was reported that Anna Nicole Smith was in drug induced state because of the 1, 500 pills she had consumed in a span of 1 month and this was compounded even more upon the death of her son Daniel. All of this was given much deliberation because of the testimony of star witness Larry Birkhead the father of Smiths daughter Dannielynn. This was also strengthened by a video showing Smith at the American Music Awards appeared on drugs.

LeAnne Rimes cover magazine mistake
 

It is not every day that you hear an editor-in-chief of a famous magazine saying out the statement “I’m sorry” in front of its ardent subscribers. But for Valerie Latona of Shape Magazine it meant saving a lot of supporters for blurting out 2 words. It all started when LeAnne Rimes graced the Shape Magazine October issue which in turn illicited some complaints from some die hard readers that Rimes was not a suitable cover model for the said magazine because of her cheating incident with then husband Dean Sheremet which Rimes admitted openly having an affair with a married man by the name of Eddie Cibrian. While Latona acknowledged the readers reaction she explained that the whole cover was not there to glorify husband stealers but it was centered on how Rimes got strength from working out amidst her personal crisis. It was a gracious action from Latona and frankly it was a collective brainstorming effort of the whole organization to feature Rimes that gave away a natural response from the public which I think doesn’t need the apology of Latona in the first place. The whole concept of Shape Magazine is centered on health and fitness not on illicit love affairs.
