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 St George's Day

This is for all our family, friends and neighbors who hail from across the pond. You’ve all heard a little about St. George but did you know he is the Patron Saint of England? Do you know why? If you have a bell feel free to ring it at 6:00 this evening.
“St George was a roman soldier who refused to take part in the persecution of Christians, which led to him being tortured and executed in Palestine, making him an early martyr.
The most famous legend surrounding St George is that of him slaying a dragon, a symbol of the devil in the Middle Ages, and saving a princess who had been offered as sacrifice.
St George’s day is also the day of William Shakespeare's birth, in 1564, and death, in 1616” The Telegraph

The term frond refers to a large, divided leaf.
A "Frawn" is what you get when you cross a bull frog and deer.

And all this time I thought Frawn was a freaky yawn....

Common misconception. A freaky yawn is referred to as a yawky.

English do not call them Eggplants we call them Aubergines, it is the European influence. Also we call Zucchini "Courgettes" and Hamburgers "Beefburgers" unless there is a little Horse in it! :(
