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

It's National Wright Brothers Day.

On December 17, 1903, the first plane carrying one man flew for just 59 seconds for a short 852 feet thanks to the engineering of the Wright brothers.
1903. Noe we have color pictures of other planets. Amazing. Proud to have spent 20 years with Lockheed Martin who is a huge part of that history. 

Ready or not here come winter. If you're not from here our air conditioner has been running all day. 80 degrees f and 96% humidity. Starting sometime arounf midnight the cold front gets here and we'll wake up to something in the 40s. To listen to the local weather folks you'd think the next ice age is here. I think most of us will survive. 

Anyone read the story in the UK papers about the one republican elector who will not vote for Trump? Turns out he's a real peach. The NY Times says they fact checked their story so you can take that for whats it's worth. Short version? Just another feckless liar added to the cesspool that are determined not to give PE Trump a fair shot. Wasn't a first responder at 911 like he claimed, not a EMT for lifeflight, not a lot of shit plus not an honest person. Surprised? How come I'm not really......

Babies have more bones in their bodies than adults. As the babies grow older, some bones eventually fuse together (like in the skull), resulting in fewer bones as an adult. Thanks Amazing Fact generator.
