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

But why? Oh well, 
National Eight Track Tape Day on April 11 recognizes an era that was here and gone in a short 20 years. It is a day to remember listening to great music of the sixties and seventies on eight-track tapes.
Popular from the mid-1960s through the early 1980s, eight track tapes are a magnetic tape sound recording technology.
Eight track tape, also called Stereo 8, was created in 1964 by Bill Lear of Lear Jet Corporation along with Ampex, Ford Motor Company, General Motors, Motorola and RCA Victor Records and released in 1965.
It was in September of 1965 that Ford Motor Company introduced factory installed and dealer installed eight track tape players as an option to buyers on three of its 1966 models, the Thunderbird, Mustang and Lincoln. All of Ford’s vehicles offered this tape player upgrade option on the 1967 model. Through the 1980s optional eight track players were available in many cars and trucks.

Too bad I haven't seen a player in 20 years....

Numbers, we got numbers. A little over 7 years this blog hit the ether and for better or worse, here we are today. I tend to think for the better. Todays post is number 1,000, which has led to 436,722 pageviews from 10 different countries resulting in 6,345 comments. A side note that kind of surprised me is the primary browser in Google Chrome at 75% and the leading OS is Mac. Whooda thunk it. Thanks for dropping by, don't forget to tip your server, we'll be here all week.  

Personally I think Ol' Boy on United shoulda got up when he was told to by the Po Po. It's just too close to Resisting all that whining made him sound like a pu$$y ....
