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 Forefather's Day.

This holiday is observed in Plymouth, Massachusetts, on December 22. It is a commemoration of the landing of the Pilgrim Fathers in Plymouth, Massachusetts, on December 21, 1620. It was introduced in Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1769.

Missed snow day, How was it? was there a crowd? Wyatt and I were working on a Latin project of his. I providing supervision of the power tools.  It'll be a Roman style bow, as in bow and arrow, when we are done. I hope.

Ever eat something so hot it makes your nose run? Me too. I made my first pot of chili of the season last night. I've been making this same recipe for a very long time so there a very few surprises in the final product. There's always gonna be a little tweaking here and there given that no two jalapenos are alike. That goes for the onions and meat as well. Well  one of the last things that go in is the the chili powder. The stuff I have is in a round bottle It's nothing special but the mix adds a nice overall flavor. My recipe calls for three tablespoons and then add the fuel AKA cayenne in smaller doses to heat it up a bit. After three tbsps there was a tad left so I just dumped it in also. No biggie. After tapping out that last bit from the square bottle in my hand I found it curious the bottle changing shapes like that. This could lead to a terrible mixup as the brand of red Cayenne I use also comes in a square bottle. Thank goodness I didn't mix up the cayenne and the chili powd...Damn. This situation has the potential to turn to shit real fast. OK we'll let it cook and check it out in the morning. Sweet Jesus, Joseph and Mary that shit is hot. Time to add a few extras to cool this shit off. I think it ate a hole in the crock pot liner. I just hope it stopped there.  I don't see any on the counter so maybe I'll dodge that bullet. Come on Ice Cream!! If you laughed then you remember that joke. I'll let you know what happened tomorrow.
