MY way of thinking about the upcoming election..

Here is the way I feel. I am not trying to convince anyone 

1.  Hillary: held accountable for her previous wrongs!

2. Put "GOD" back in America !!!

3. Borders: Closed or tightly guarded!
4. Congress: On the same retirement & healthcare plans as everybody else. (plus term limitations)
5. Congress: Obey its own laws NOW!
6. Language: English only!
7. Culture: Constitution and the Bill of Rights!
8. Drug Free: Mandatory Drug Screening before & during Welfare!
9. Freebies: NONE to Non-Citizens!
10. Budget: Balance the damn thing!
11. Foreign Countries: Stop giving them our money!  Charge them for our help!  We need it here.
12. Fix the TAX CODE!
And most of all.



APRIL 10 - 12, 2015

Pearland Parks & Recreation Grounds
4141 Bailey Rd.
Pearland, TX 77584.
Pearland ISD Education Foundation, Pearland Parks Foundation,
Pearland Arts Organizations & The Houston Blues Society
The festival will be back serving even more hot, fresh crawfish at a great price, along with the best of Cajun dishes and classic festival fare, only this year in a new home. The festival has moved to the grounds adjacent the Pearland Parks & Recreation Center at 4141 Bailey Rd. With the move comes the chance to bring out more: more food - including more Cajun food, more vendors, more activities, more carnival rides, and more fun! Specialty entertainment like the popular Splash Dogs will be back and bigger than before, with new Iguana Races and more added to the armadillo races, contests, and more.
Crawfish: The festival features the best farm-raised crawfish the Gulf Coast has to offer at a great price. The crawfish is being handled by Swamp Shack Catering - world-class, professional boilers who learned the art deep in the bayous of Louisiana. They have supplied crawfish and catered events, festivals, and high profile parties along the Gulf Coast. This will insure that the signature feature of the festival - great crawfish - is served fast and hot, spiced just right, and professionally handled in high volume. Last year on Saturday we made a decision cut back on Crawfish and servers because of an 80% chance of rain “It was a mistake!” that we won’t make again
Carnival: This year will see more, bigger, and better amusement rides and games with rides to thrill the adults and the little ones, too.
The Houston Blues Society Stage: The Houston Blues Society is dedicated to the study, research and preservation of the blues culture and music unique to Houston, Texas and the Texas Gulf Coast. They will provide a stage showcasing this iconic music of overcoming struggle that has deep traditions joining Texas and Louisiana. This year they’ll bring even more and bigger acts.
The Bayou Stage - The Cajun culture evokes a love of fun, good-time music. In Texas, Zydeco from Louisiana is joined by Texas Country and Classic Rock for the soundtrack of a great time.
Specialty Entertainment: This year Iguana Races and other new specialty acts join the popular Armadillo Races, Splash Dogs, Crawfish and Funnel Cake Eating Contests. A special Crawfish Eating "heat" between Pearland's police and fire departments will allow patrons to cheer on their heroes.
Festival Vendors: The festival will feature rows of vendors with the best of arts, crafts, gifts and more from Pearland, the Greater Houston-Gulf Coast Area and around the country.
Children's Area: will provide all patrons need to keep their kids busy and having fun during the event.
Above all, this festival is all about the food- in addition to great crawfish there is a lot more to offer... Alligator * Blackened Grouper * Boudin * Louisiana Lobster * Puff Lobster Sliders * Boudin Balls * Catfish Sandwich * Cajun Seafood * Cajun Sausage * Chicken & Waffles * Crab Cakes * Jambalaya * Jambalaya Pot Stickers * Gumbo * Grilled Oysters * Shrimp Creole * Shrimp Po-Boy * Sweet Potato Beigneits * Flavored - Cracklin * Crawfish Etoufee * Fried Onion Petals * Fried Pies & Fried Sweets * Gumbo Fries *Shaved Ice * Shaved Beef Sandwich * Fajitas * Chicken Sliders * Burritos* Turkey Legs * Tacos * Sweet Roasted Corn * Spiral Potato Chips * Smoothies * Roasted Nuts* Sausage on a Stick * Pulled Pork Sandwich * Funnel Cakes * Ice Cream * and so much more...

This is a nonvenomous Texas rat snake.

Texas Windmill on the Texas Salt Grass Prairie - HWW!!!
WINDMILLS. Before the introduction of windmills to Texas, inhabitable land was confined to areas where a constant water supply was available. There was no way for vast areas to be settled without a life-giving supply of water. The coming of the windmill made it possible to pump water from beneath the ground, and soon whole new areas of the state were opened up to settlers. The first windmills in Texas were of the European style, built by Dutch and German immigrants for grinding meal and powering light industry. What Texans needed most, however, was a windmill that pumped water. Because of its bulk and need for constant attention, the European windmill was impractical for this purpose. The solution to this problem came in 1854, when Daniel Halladay (Hallady or Halliday) built the first American windmill in Ellington, Connecticut. He added to his mill a vane, or "tail," as it was called by Texas cowhands, that functioned to direct the wheel into the wind. The wheel was a circle of wood slats radiating from a horizontal shaft and set at angles to the wind, designed so that centrifugal force would slow it in high winds; thus, the machine was self-regulating and operated unattended. Its simple direct-stroke energy converter consisted of only a shaft and a small fly wheel to which the sucker rod was pinned. This compact mechanism was mounted on a four-legged wood tower that could be constructed over a well in one day. Railroad companies immediately recognized windmills as an inexpensive means of providing water for steam engines and for attracting settlers to semi-arid regions through which they planned to lay track. In 1860 the Houston Tap and Brazoria Railway purchased the right to manufacture and use James Mitchell's "Wind Wheel" on its right-of-way from Houston to Wharton. By 1873 the windmill had become an important supplier of water for railways, small towns where there were no public water systems, and small farms. Many of the very early mills were crude, inefficient, homemade contraptions. One of the popular makeshift mills was a wagon wheel with slats nailed around it to catch the wind, mounted on half an axle. The axle was fastened securely to a post erected beside the well. A sucker rod was pinned to the edge of the hub. It was stationary and worked only when the wind blew in the right direction. The windmills used later on the big ranches were the more dependable factory-made windmills. By 1900 windmills were a common sight in Texas. Inhabitable land was no longer limited to regions with a natural water supply. The windmill made the most remote areas habitable. The last major development in the windmill came in 1915. A housing that needed to be filled with oil only once a year was built around the mill's gears. This relieved the range rider of his biweekly greasing chores and somewhat diminished the windmiller's job. Because of the dependability of this improved windmill, worries over water shortages were eased for the rancher, farmer, and rural dweller. This mill was the prime supplier of water in rural Texas until 1930, when electric and gasoline pumps began to be widely used. Though Texas became the largest user of windmills in the United States, there were never more than three active manufacturers of windmills in Texas at one time. Only two Texas manufacturers, the Axtell Company in Fort Worth and the San Antonio Machine and Supply Company, produced windmills on a large scale. The last water-pumping windmill patented in the United States, however, was invented by a native Texan, W. W. Welborn, in 1951, in the small southwestern town of Carrizo Springs. The King Ranch in the late 1960s kept 262 mills running continuously and 100 complete spares in stock. The XIT Ranch in the Texas Panhandle at one time had 335 functioning windmills. Stocking spare mills is a common practice among ranchers who depend on the windmill to supply water for cattle in remote pastures. Because the windmill has been confined for the most part to remote areas, it has become a symbol of a lonely and primitive life, fitting for the pioneer Texans it first served. Aermotor Windmill has a very interesting 118 year business history. However, one simple truth stands undiminished by time or geography. Aermotor Windmill has continuously manufactured windmills since 1888 and is the only windmill manufacturer in the USA. In 1986 Aermotor was purchased by an investor group and moved to San Angelo, Texas. The name was changed to Aermotor Windmill Corporation. See: and
