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

One site says Aldi has postponed the opening of its Kemah area store at 222 FM 518. That’s across from Wal-y-world. The GCDN says Aldi has set the opening for the 24th with a ribbon cutting on the 22nd. Pick one.
The Childrens Fishing Tournament is this Saturday! See your Islander for details.
The Citizen has this about our “Shuttle”
Named by a Texan in the “Spirit of Texas,” Space Center Houston’s shuttle replica is now called “Independence.”
Tim Judd, of Kingwood, submitted “Independence” in the first second of the online contest earlier this year.
said Richard Allen, President of Space Center Houston.
The full-sized Space Shuttle replica is at ground level until the 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, now parked at Ellington Airport, is brought to Space Center Houston and the shuttle replica put on top of it.

“Tourists watch the Old Faithful geyser in the Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming in June 2011. One tourist told a Massachusetts newspaper that National Park Service guards treated members of her tour group brusquely and told them not to "recreate" while taking pictures of bison.”
The tour guide argued to rangers that the tourists -- some of them from overseas -- weren't "recreating," just taking pictures.
"She responded and said, 'Sir, you are recreating,' and her tone became very aggressive," the newspaper quoted Vaillancourt as saying.

Wong Chow calls into work and says, I no come work today, I really sick.

When I feel sick like you do, I go to my wife and tell her to give me sex.
That make everything better and I go to work.. You try that.

Two hours later Wong Chow calls again.  I do what you say and I feel
great... I be at work soon..... You got nice house.
