Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

This is on the front page of todays Chronicle "The fraternity of men who've held the title of President of the United States is full of legendary speakers including Obama, Kennedy and Lincoln." Your question for the day is what in the hell qualifies Mr. Obama as a "legendary" orator? Hell even i can read  tele-promter... 

As late as the 1800s, some American women received thimbles as symbols of their engagements.
