For each new morning with its light, for rest and shelter of the night, for health and food, for love and friends, for everything Thy goodness sends. – By Ralph Waldo Emerson

The grocery story is busting at the seams, the noise is beyond OSHA acceptable limits. The shopping carts are double parked in the aisles and people are bending down on the floor trying to reach the last something at the very back of the shelf…

Its Thanksgiving shopping! The shopping lists are paper long & paperless as well. They all read sugar flour, eggs, pecans, onions etc. etc.
You would never guess that just a couple of months ago, it was water, cleaning supplies, water, cleaning supplies, and no gas…

A week ago history recording the worst mass shooting in Texas history, which left 26 people dead, 20 wounded.

News read: Another Border Patrol shot. Records show that Big Bend accounted for about 1 percent of the more than 61,000 apprehensions its agents made along the Southwest borderfrom October 2016 to May.

Harvey devastated a swath of Texas stretching from the Houston area into Louisiana in 2017.

Another Texas top news story: the obvious difference between 2013 and 2016 was that the oil and gas industry was doing a whole lot better in the year before summer 2013 than it was in the summer before 2016. And oil and gas is a significant factor in Texas’ economy.
