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

ike peas in an esophagus?

It's National Olive Day AND Heimlich Maneuver Day. Perfect!
2004 is in the tube and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Pretty sure it's not a train. This time. 
The year started off with ManCakes and moved straight to the Sandbars Mardi Gras Parade. Great way to kick start a year eh? There was a tax hike to pay for street maintenance and Neal Pleasant replaced a bunch of Nav Aids in the bayou. Thanks Neal! Pete Carrothers led another waterfront cleanup and had lots of help and a small, pedestrian bridge idea was floated for the canals at Lazy Bend. It was for the Chilrens. There was zero interest. The 2nd annual Caroling Carters had a blast and the third IWGS was a hit. The City finally put together a master drainage plan with the help of Mike Bass and Council put together our "Green Space" ordinance. The Police got a new police boat and City Hall made the move across the street to their current home. A much needed move. The Next time you are n the Club House envision City Hall being in the room where the Civic Club office is and the whole damned police department in the other end. Tight much? Marcy D opened up out first Island Coffee shop. It was above where Aspens is now. There is an interesting recipe about a Pina Colada cake that bears investigation and it just wouldn't do if there was not another conversation brought up about filling in the Flounder Pond. The Corps has posted a number and is asking for all concerned citizens opinions. Whodda thunk it. 

All you LSU fans, Looks like it's your turn in the barrel. 
"The petition’s author claims the mascot is “incredibly insulting” for African Americans because they have to “attend a school that honors Confederate militantism.”
The student gave another reason why the tiger mascot ought to be changed: “It’s also cruel to cage a wild animal for the amusement of privileged white people. They’ve never been in a cage!”
Sounds like it's time for a grownup to point out to these morons they don't have to attend LSU?
Well at least they are not alone. The snowflakes at Evergreen in Washington State are having a nervous breakdown because the white people won't leave campus like they demanded. WTF?
