Interesting Things that Few Know About or Have Ever Seen

TexasMissB.com is the combination of a nickname and my home state.

There is always something few have heard about or seen at any name brand department store like
Walmart, Target, Kmart, etc.

Not everything will be about Texas, but since it is my home state, this webpage is how I wanted to start.
Among the interesting items I list here, I will sometimes include my own Made by a Texan Handcrafted Items.
I use the internet to spread the word about TMB.
This page will change often as new interesting things are found. Older listed items simply will move to a different webpage, they will not disappear.

Texas is the 2nd largest USA state and has 254 counties. The largest parking lot in the world is at the Texas Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Texas still owns all of its public lands, so the federal government must ask for the state's permission before creating a park or cutting a stand of timber. Texas retains the right to fly its Lone Star flag at the same height as the national flag.
