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

South pole?

Was reading an article about Titan. One of Saturns moons. They identified a “storm” near it’s south pole. How do they identify it as south?

Allan,

I thought you were a big astonomy buff. I'm surprised you do not know the answer to your own question regarding Titan. The south pole resides on the side of Titan that is closest to Uranus.

Your buddy,

Bryan

From Yahoo today
Before it was Internet junk mail, Spam was (and is) an often-mocked canned meat product created in the late 1930s. Made of inexpensive cuts of pork and blended with spices and nitrates (a preservative), it's cooked in its own can, which pressurizes it and allows the meat mixture to reach a temperature that renders it sterile-so it can sit for an eternity on a store shelf.
Sorry to see all the rain today seems it is either feast or famine.

Unfortunatly there has been an arrest of a man on the island for indecency with a child. It saddens me to see this and I hope the charges are unfounded. It reminds me that while we all love to see our children with the freedom that comes from living here (I want that to continue so badly for my grandson)we also need to remind them that even here strangers and even those semi familiar cannot be fully trusted and we need to teach them to not let themselves be put in situations where they could be compromised. See GLV County Daily News - Clear Lake Shores.
