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

Civic Club meeting hi-lites
I’m not sure who brought that chocolate cake but it was fantastic! I’m slobbering just typing about it.
The Club is looking for a President in the upcoming election. The other Officers have agreed to stay on.
The Scholarship Committee Chair, Amanda Booren says it’s Official the ever favorite Soup Cook-Off is scheduled for March 22nd. She is looking for a couple of volunteers to help pull it off. You can leave a note here and I’ll hook you up or contact her directly.
Glenn has an awesome idea for a Porthole marker for our Time Capsule. Didn’t know we had a time capsule? That’s because you don’t come to the meetings.
We read the updated By-Laws and agreed to make a few tweeks before the final vote next meeting.
The Club is going to move The Islander to the digital age. That’s right, we’re going electronic. Stand by for more news.

Best for last at this years 4th of July Membership Drive and Celebration we are going to have a Pie Baking contest. All Proceeds will go the Police Departments equipment fund. How freakin’ AWESOME is that?! Thanks Councilman Ianni for a great idea!

I have two openings left for ManCakes. Don’t wait till the last damned minute again.

The Mardi Gras Golf Cart Parade starts at 2PM March 1. We’ll start the lineup at the Pavilion. Get your beads early.

I’m looking for two stretch golf carts with drivers to shuttle the Yachty Gras Judges from the Club house to Deep Hole park and back Saturday, March 1, starting about 6 and ending close to 9.

According to a BBB news release, a remote computer is sending thousands of calls to random cell phone numbers. The phone only rings once and then disconnects. Some curious customers then return the missed call and will immediately be charged hefty international call-fees and additional per-minute charges. Consumers, who have been scammed, indicate the calls come from the Caribbean Islands, including Grenada, Antigua, Jamaica, and the British Virgin Islands.
Mobile phone users need to be on the lookout for this “one ring” scam that could result in unauthorized charges on your wireless bill. It is also recommended if you don’t recognize an out-of-state telephone number on your caller ID, ignore it.  If you do answer, and no one speaks, hang up and do not call back.

Bigfoot is coming to town. Seriously.
“Anyone who doubts a Texas man's claim that he shot Bigfoot near San Antonio will have a chance, two actually, to check out the carcass at close range.
Rick Dyer, who says he shot the ape-human creature in 2012, is scheduled to make two evening appearances later this month at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
At 7:30 p.m. Feb. 24, Dyer will be at the Mason Park location, 531 S. Mason Road in Katy, and at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 25, he will be at the Vintage Park site, 114 Vintage Park Blvd., in northwest Houston.”

The practice of third parties placing unauthorized charges on wireless accounts is called “cramming.”

Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money.
       How come we never hear about welfare running out of money? 
       What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't.

Your tongue is the only muscle in your body that is attached at only one end .

I understand it will be cost effective to only have the Islander in digital format. Could the last two issues devote at least a half page to announcing such? I fear we will lose readers. And I betcha there are a few folks without computers or smart phones.
