I have had three pieces of glass replaced, and can say that Howard is prompt, polite, and does excellent work: highly recommended. He has a full-service glass company, offering residential and commercial glass, windows, shower enclosures, and more.

Call the Mosheim Mansion at (830) 372-9905 to experience an example of what a truly fine home was once like, for weddings, anniversary parties, corporate events, or for a family get-together.

Baroque Art: a fantastic collection of paintings, some dating back to the Middle Ages.

The Missions of San Antonio: visit the Spanish missions in San Antonio, Texas. Most tourists visit only the Alamo, missing out on so much of San Antonio's history.

Santo Domingo: photo gallery showing the Dominican Republic the way I remember it, not the way you see in the tourist books. My family lived there for 27 years. Anyone planning a vacation should consider Santo Domingo as their next destination. As the first European city in America, its historical monuments and history offer so much more than the isolated beach resorts. Forget Punta Cana and Altos de Chavón.

Vintage Car Photo Gallery: Visit my photo gallery of vintage and antique cars. These photos were taken in Dick's Classic Car Museum and the Central Texas Museum of Automotive History. If you do not have the opportunity to visit either museum, I hope you will enjoy my photos online. This car photo gallery has over two hundred photos on seven pages!

Jupiter: some photos of Jupiter and the moon above Austin.

Cars: If you are thinking about buying a vintage car, take a look at these scans from old editions of Consumer Reports to judge the repair history of the car before you buy:    1963-68    66-71    70-73    72-77    78-83   

Slickcar: for every kind of information about taking care of your car.

Minimum Payments: use this calculator to find how many years it will take to pay off your credit card if you only make the minimum payments.

Social Stratification: Sociology students will be interested to read Dr. Cecil Headrick's thesis, explaining how the American Dream was systematically denied to the majority of Americans. Though Cecil wrote his thesis in 1941, so much of it remains true today!

Compendio Jurídico Dominicano: Estudiantes de la ley dominicana y abogados también pueden leer gratis el compendio del Dr. William C. Headrick, un abogado en Santo Domingo entre 1974 y 2002.

Genealogy: the Headrick Family tree. Originally from Scotland, William Headrick emigrated to America in 1753. His descendants settled in Greeneville, Tennessee. I am a ninth generation American and a son of the Revolution. I have ancestors from Finland (Jakobstad), Scotland (Perthshire), France (Marseille), and England (Norfolk). Records of some of my French ancestors, the Delascours, go back as far as 1420. Find your ancestors on Geneanet, and build a website about your family tree.



My "old schools:"
Sedbergh School: Their motto, "Dura Virum Nutrix," said it all. Ab anno Domini MDXXV.

University of St. Andrews: This was the place to study. St. Andrews was the oldest university in Scotland, in the Top Five, and fit for a prince. The work was overwhelming, no time for golf. I spent the best two years of my life here. Every day in St. Andrews was like living in history. This is where I became interested in watches and clocks. Very traditional atmosphere.

College of William and Mary: in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. Alma Mater of Thomas Jefferson. If you prefer work that is not overwhelming and an exceptionally quiet, traditional atmosphere in the United States, this is the place.
