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

Tuesday it is.


 Mancakes was a hit. If you missed it you missed something. THe kitchen crew rocked it like nobodys business. We served just under 100 plates and that doesn't count all those who came back for seconds and even thirds. That was a new record. Here's where I give a shout out to the Farmers Market management team. THey bought breakfast for their vendors and that accounted for 30 plates all by itself. Thanks Jennifer and David. Maybe next year it will look something like this

9. ADJOURNMENT 

This from neighbor Alyson. I gotta add my two cents. I agree 110% on the plastic. I think it will be the bane of civilization. We need to do something and maybe this is it. What do y'all think?
I have seen way, way too many plastic water bottles and other beverage containers in Texas streams, creeks, bayous, bays, and gulf, including a plastic water bottle stuck in the throat of a pelican skeleton.   These wastes are actually valuable resources that can be reused, if collected and returned to various industries.  Beverage container deposits have proven to be an effective incentive to return these materials to the market place.  It's time for Texas to take advantage of this "nest egg" on the ground!

That's why I signed a petition to The Texas State House, The Texas State Senate, and Governor Rick Perry, which says:

"Establish beverage container deposits and independent free standing redemption centers, so Texans have incentives to keep Texas streams clean!"
