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

Conflict resoution?

I think this one needs a little tweaking. It's National Women's Health and Fitness day and National Cherries Jubilee day. Is it just me? Could be...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MELINDA!!

After the latte salute I couldn't resist this one.


A 94-year-old Prophecy is Fulfilled

H.L. Mencken (born 1880 - died 1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic and Democrat.
"As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people.  On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."
---H.L.  Mencken, the Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920

Hallelujah! Eric Holder is resigning. Watch the rats begin to jump ship, one by one. I hope our elected officials have the courage to prosecute & incarcerate the ones guilty of obstruction of justice and treason...but wait, then there would be nobody left in the Senate or Congress!

Sorry to see this blog being used for a political sounding board . . . so much for laid back island life.

Anon you must be a newbie. This blog has been a political sounding board since conception. In fact in its first year or two it was the political sounding board that brought us even closer together. If you were not here for the fireworks go back and read the posts when this got started it was a hoot.

It has been used for a political sounding board by some but I believe it's original purpose and what it hopes to achieve is to keep the people of this wonderful island informed about what is going on here - not in washington. As we know - it's founder reserves the right to voice his opinion and believes it is the right of others to voice theirs unless they spout personal attacks.

I am the one who posted the information about Holder. My intent was to inform all of the recent development as what happens in DC DOES affect us!

Further, I frankly don't care what side of the political aisle one resides, so long as that person is of good character and does not try to infringe upon the liberties afforded to me by the U.S. Constitution.

One final piece of advice; please remember the quote, "Those who do not read history are doomed to repeat it." And then read your history about Germany during the 1930's when a lunatic told the people what they wanted to hear while simultaneously forwarding his agenda through intimidation (brown shirts/SS) and control of the media (reference the Minister of Propaganda). His unchecked antics resulted in a horrible war with millions upon millions dead. The daily assault upon our liberties will ultimately result in our demise unless these power-hungry elitists are booted out of office and prosecuted if they have committed crimes.

And speaking of politics........early voting starts in a couple of weeks and the person who did a lot of harm to our community is running as an independent for judge.....Please put it on your list to vote FOR Judge Mark Henry or the other partys candidate. Mark is a good guy and was instrumental in getting that nut Judge Duprey unseated as judge and disbarred.

You can rock along in this world thinking your life is paradise, but if you or your family member happens to end up in the county court for some reason you want to be sure its not Bill Young who is your Judge, and if he is, you DONT want him to know you are from the paradise island of Clear Lake Shores. It might go badly for you.

I can understand the Bill Young for Judge signs around the county BUT NOT near CLS. We know he was fired when he was a cop. Selling insurance while on duty is not good. What qualifications are needed to run for Judge?

Does anybody know when the county/city will spray for mosquitos?

I don't know exactly when the city will spray for Mosquitos. I hope soon. Apparently this particular type of mosquito causes some to develop histrionic personality disorder. And one practice these people seem to engage in is posting over the top comments that compare our current political landscape to that of 1930s Germany. This couldn't be a rational thought process so it must be the mosquito bites. I do hope they spray soon. Our island life may include a few unpleasantries. One of them is dealing with people who are all about personal attacks and have such hatred toward those who have a different political view. On balance, this is a great blog to catch up on awkwardly threaded screws and oddly shaped shrubbery. So .... To the newbie - many share your opinion. They are just not necessarily posting here but instead, they are just kickin it with their good neighbors, maybe having a drink, basically doing things other than making personal attacks against elected officials and posters on this blog.

The City IS spraying, however, it is not very effective. The spray only kills a mosquito if it comes into contact with a mosquito. Residents need to fog their own properties and please wear repellent containing DEET.
This "outbreak" of mosquitos is among the worst on record in Galveston County, due to the recent rainfail and warm temperatures. Make sure you have no standing water on your property.

I sprayed Cutter Backyard and it helped some but the zombie mosquito's were still hanging outside my door last night- even elevated they bit me on my deck. Spraying again today. Galveston county sprayed last night.
