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

National Eat beans day

Beans (legumes) are one of the longest cultivated plants dating back to the early seventh millennium BCE.
Today,  just as throughout the Old and New World history, beans are an important source of protein.  A very healthy choice for any meal or snack, they are also an excellent source of fiber (including soluble fiber), are low in fat and are high in complex carbohydrates, folate and iron.  Soluble fiber can help lower blood cholesterol.
  • There are approximately 40,000 bean varieties in the world.
  • Only a fraction of these varieties are mass-produced for regular consumption.
  • Beans are a heliotropic plant – this means that the leaves tilt to face the sun during the day and go into a folded “sleep” position at night.
You can't make this stuff up.

Civic Club Meeting tonight 7:00 for the potluck dinner and 7:30 for the meeting.

I get emails......

Do you think this is why we are over $17 Trillion in debt?

I have not read of a single dollar reduction in foreign aid as a result of sequestering. All items cut were for the express purpose of hurting the American taxpayer/working

 people the most!

Well?
DEMOCRATS and Republicans

We read all the jokes and forward the good ones
but I just wonder who will pass this one on.
How about you sending it on, and back to me,
if you have enough 'chutzpah' to do so.

I do

And I wonder just how many I will get back?
Someone please tell me what's wrong with
All the people that run this country!!!!!!

Both Democrats and Republicans

They Say,"We're broke"

And can't help our own

Veterans,

Seniors,

Orphans,

Etc.,?????


But, over the last several years THEY
have provided direct cash aid to.....


Hamas - $351 M,

Libya $1.45 Billion,

Egypt - $397 M,

Mexico - $622 M,

Russia - $380 M,

Haiti - $1.4 Billion,

Jordan - $463 M,

Kenya - $816 M,

Sudan - $870 M,

Nigeria - $456 M,

Uganda - $451 M,

Congo - $359 M,

Ethiopia - $981 M,

Pakistan - $2 Billion,

South Africa - $566 M,

Senegal - $698 M,

Mozambique - $404 M,

Zambia - $331 M,

Kazakhstan - $304 M,

Iraq - $1.08 Billion,

Tanzania - $554 M,

A total of 14,933,000,000
that is 14.933 BILLION
...with literally Billions of Dollars

and they still hate us!!!!
(NOTE HOW MANY AFRICAN NATIONS!)

But on the other hand,

OUR MILITARY IS BEING CUT, OUR SOLDIERS AND HAVING THEIR BENEFIT CUT AND THE GOVERNMENT HAS GONE BACK ON ITS
PROMISE OF FREE MEDICAL CARE AND DENYING DISABLITY TO THOSE PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY TORN APART FOR NO GOOD REASON IN POLITICAL WARS!

Our retired seniors,
Living on a 'fixed income, have their
taxes raised to send to these countries and also are having medical benefits cut.

Our own citizens receive NO aid unless they are the ones who refuse to work and have babies for welfare payments!

Nor do they get any breaks, while our government
And religious organizations will pour
Hundreds of Billions Of $$$$$$'s
and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries and the illegals and leeches within our borders!



AMERICA: A country where we have

Our brave warriors, damaged for life, waiting in year long + for their due, the elderly going without needed medication
and the Mentally ill without treatment, and for all of
us, our safety is at risk because
prisoners are being
released
back onto the streets
due to "lack of funds -- etc.

YET..........

They will have a 'Benefit' Show

For the people of Haiti , on 12 TVStations;
Ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents
clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.

Now Just Imagine if

Our own *GOVERNMENT*

Gave 'US' the same support they give to foreign countries.

From the Office
If you have standing water on your property, please come by City Hall and obtain "tossit tablets" to be put in standing water.  These tablets are larvacide which will prevent mosquitos from hatching.  We will distribute them to Clear Lake Shores residents at no charge (limit of five per resident) while supplies last. If your property has a tendency to have standing water after a rainfall, please deposit these tablets into the standing water.  Each tablet will treat an area with a water surface of up to one hundred square feet.  Please do not use them unless you have standing water.  When handling these tablets, please use gloves or some type of barrier between the tablet and bare skin.  Mosquitos can be disease spreading insects.  Their bite can be very irritating and occasionally can produce illness, especially in the very young and older populations and others with compromised immune systems.  The most common illness is West Nile virus but other viral diseases may occur also, sometimes without apparent symptoms.
