This weekend is the 26th annual Hummer Festival held in Rockport, TX.  Everyone loves these cute little birds that come in a variety of colors.  They can keep you entertained for hours watching them fight over the hummingbird feeder or gracefully flying from one flower to the next. I spend hours ...
Do you like meatloaf?  Most people do, I think.  I do not make it very often as the recipe will feed quite a few people, so I make it when I have company.  Which was the case tonight and we feasted.  It was very good.  A great comfort food when you are not counting calories and you really want th...
Today is a great day to do your shopping for "Back to School".  It is a tax free weekend in Texas.  You can buy all sorts of things without paying the usual 8.25 percent tax and that will mean big savings for lots of people.   Clothes, shoes, school supplies and a long list of other things will b...
First, it was Active Rain being bought out by Trulia.  Now, it is Zillow buying Trulia.  It has been announced that 3.5 billion in stock is the price of this company and the ink will soon be dry.

I've seen oceans with powerful waves and currents.  The fish and wildlife in the oceans is also impressive to me.  I ...
I normally never say anything bad about an area but I am choosing not to hold my tongue about this. I had heard the fireworks display in Rockport was pretty great, so this year we decided to check it out.  It is true, there were lots of fireworks. What else I saw made me never want to go there a...
Maybe it is because they waste so much that they have the least. I am talking specifically about wasting money on electricity.  We all want to be comfortable.  With central heat and air conditioning, it is not hard but paying the electric bill can be. There are many things you can do to save mone...
Today I was thinking about the value of a penny.  Ben Frankliin once said something like, "A penny saved is a penny earned."  I learned that long ago and have thought about it many times.  I make a practice of picking up every penny I see on the ground.  I always say this is my good luck charm.  ...
Happy Father's Day to all the Fathers.   Happy Father's Day to my Dad that passed away a long time ago. He was a great Daddy to me.  He had a great smile and an easy going personality.  He never met a stranger and everyone loved seeing him and visiting with him.  He was a good listener and a good...
