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

TGIF AND

It's National Scotch Day!! I love this country...

Here we are and July is nearly over. In my book it's been a great summer so far.

Well we got a third and in my mind final offer from a movie licensing company. They want $250 as a flat fee. Yes, per movie. period. It's still up to the club to vote on but the way I see it one of our concerned neighbors has killed Movie Night as we know it. Thanks. You know I don't mean that right?

Hanna's Reef is playing in the park this Saturday night and they are playing for tips. One neighbor raised a lot of very valid questions over the event. If no one is sponsoring this concert does that mean any band can set up and play any time they want? Is that a good idea? I have visions of a hip hop wanna be band at 10 am on a Sunday. It's not pretty. Looks like a job for City Council.

Neighbor Beryl Dulson is going in to the hospital. Keep her and Wayne in your prayers.

Today is the last day for early voting. Election day is Tuesday. Git-er-done!

From neighbor Paul Garner, Taken by the bridge....





From Neighbor Steve. Thanks SP! The Curiosity Mars Rover, a rover approximately the size of a Volkswagen, will land on Mars on 05 August 2012 about 8:30 pm CDST. Signals from the complex Lander System take 14 minutes to get from Mars back to NASA on Earth. From the start of entry into the Martian Atmosphere to final touchdown of the Curiosity Rover takes 7 minutes, so the Mission Control folks talk about the “Seven Minutes of Terror” they will have to wait through to know if the Rover is dead or alive.

The video “Seven Minutes of Terror” is very good, and can be seen at:

Cross your fingers for us on 5 August.

Can anyone give us the status on the lawsuits against Bernie and Barbra? Lots of folks are asking me what is going on but I have no idea.
