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

It's National Dog Day
Dumbest shit I read this week: “A sign advertising the bacon at a Vermont diner has been taken down after a Muslim resident complained about the sign on the Internet and sparked a massive backlash against the restaurant, Sneakers Bistro.
In June, in return for taking part in a local volunteer initiative to plant flower beds in the city’s traffic medians, the diner was awarded a sign on a lamp post that said “Yield for Sneakers Bacon.” A woman took issue with the sign, calling it insensitive to those who don’t eat pork.”
First, This business is free to put up or take down any of their signs they choose. They choose. Not a sign that was chosen for them. Some bonehead is not happy with a word on the sign so it must be removed? Are you shittin’ me? Insensitive? Let’s face it she’s a moron. The owner went on to say they took the sign down as a gesture of respect for the community. His call. What about the communities respect for his business? What’s next get all pork off the menu? Anything that isn’t Halal? (That has already happened) The Mayor of Winooski, Vt. Said “The cool part of living in a diverse community is that it’s not always comfortable,”. Or apparently as diverse as he thinks it is. That citizen just made it a tad less diverse because she got her sensitivities tested by the word bacon. What a Moron. Sometimes you just gotta call ‘em out. You don’t like my sign feel free to shop elsewhere. I wonder if she is going to stop with bacon. Hold on to your shorts Winooski…..
