IslandDrumz

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

April is.....


National Grilled Cheese Month! I find that a lot more interesting than Congress spending my money on what a private employee at a private company does on his own time. Why Roger Clemens? Why not just go down to the local park, select a pickup game and start passing out specimen cups. What a screaming waste. It’s a BALLGAME played by MILLIONAIRES who think they are UNDERPAID by the BILLIOAIRE owners. Everyone who cares raise your hand.

 
I stopped by the IHOP on NASA Parkway for a takeout breakfast the other day. Did you know they offer a 20% discount if you show them a NASA badge? A couple of gents in front of me brought that to my attention and I know there a lot of folks out there sporting one. Just a heads up.
 

 


This from the fire department:

On April 18, 2012, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of STOK Island and STOK Quattro gas grills. The regulator on the grill can leak propane gas, which can ignite, posing fire and burn hazard to consumers. The STOK Island has a round grill base and two burners. "STOK" is written on the grill cover and a label on the bottom of the grill stand. The STOK Quattro gas grill is a rectangular, four-burner grill. "STOK" is printed on the grill's lid. To identify whether a specific Island or Quattro grill is included in this recall, you will need to look at the grill's regulator. The recalled grills have regulators on them with the model number "AZF" on the front and a date code between 1046 and 1143 on the back of the regulator. Sold at: Home Depot stores nationwide and in Canada and Direct Tools Factory Outlet stores nationwide from March 2011 through February 2012 for between $79 and $350.
