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

The Great American Smoke Out

Is today! The last Thursday before Thanksgiving. 
Evolving from a series of small-scale initiatives, the first Great American Smokeout was held on November 16, 1977, in San Francisco’s Union Square.
  • 1970 – Randolph, Massachusetts – Arthur P. Mullaney suggested people give up cigarettes for a day donating the money to a local high school.
  • 1974 – Monticello, Minnesota – Lynn R. Smith of the Monticello Times promoted a “Don’t Smoke Day”.
  • 1976 – November 18, The California Division of the American Cancer Society successfully prompted nearly one million smokers to quit for the day.
How many used to smoke? Still smoking? How long ago did you quit? It's been 20 years for me. Hardest thing I've ever done in my life and glad of it.

Who's ready for a cold front? You better be cuz ready or not...

Okies Bar and Grill is shaping right up. 

Ever think about getting your car or truck detailed? Well it doesn't get any easier than this and they're locals! PS. Please post a review here for the rest of your neighbors to see.  Thanks.
