Memorial Day 2018

Daniel MabryBarbeques…Friends and family…Children out of school and playing in the street…Time relaxing by the pool…Cool evening breezes…making s’mores on an open fire pit… Memorial Day unofficially marks the start of summer vacation for many households; however, this day is meant to memorialize the military men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice defending our nation. Previous to 1971, Memorial Day was known as Decoration Day following the Civil War to honor the fallen.

What’s Love Got to do with It?

Richard PratherThe 2018 year brings another Valentine’s Day (V-Day), to your doorstep. This year’s V-Day happens to fall on a Wednesday, hump-day no less. Now it’s not lost on me that this day can either bring you happiness or sadness! Trust me, I know both sides of this coin all too well. Nevertheless, you are most likely thinking about your V-Day plans and those long stem red roses. Or maybe, you don’t have a date on V-Day. No matter, you love the outdoors and you’ve have already made camping plans on the beach in Galveston and the weather looks great. As the clock counts down, you can’t wait to get out of the city. You check the day and time but alas, it’s still the beginning of the week. You start thinking back to high school in hopes that someone would pull the fire alarm.

It’s Spring Time!!!

Thelisa LavergneI love the spring time ! However, if you are a Houston resident I am not sure that spring has not already sprung. Did we skip the winter season entirely? Our winter consisted of a few days that were 40 degrees and winter showers – not much of a winter! Normally, when I think of spring, I think of spring cleaning the house, getting rid of clothes that I have not worn in three months or longer, putting away fall and winter clothing (not much to worry about there), donating books that I promise myself I am going to read and never get around to it, tackling those stored boxes in the attic and the list goes on and on.

Shadowing Punxsutawney

FriedaGroundhog Day is recognized each year on February 2. It was originally adopted in the United States in 1887 by the editor of Philadelphia’s Punxsutawney Sprit, Clymer H. Freas. He decided to promote a groundhog as the town’s official meteorologist because as the story goes, when a groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil emerges from his den on a cloudy day and does not see his shadow, spring will come early! However, if it’s sunny outside and he does see his shadow, he retreats back into his den because the bitter cold of winter will persist for yet another six weeks.

This Thanksgiving, Reward Yourself by Rewarding Others

Diego TrevinoPeople often associate stuffing their faces with Thanksgiving as they do bees with making honey. But just as bees pollinate the planet, people also give back on this particular day. Every Thanksgiving before, I destroy multiple family members’ kitchens and gain a couple of inches on my waist size I wake up early and dedicate my time to 2016 TX Energy Houston Turkey Trot which benefits half a million people in the Houston area. In the past few years of doing this, I’ve noticed that the Thanksgiving spread tastes a lot better. Houston has a lot of opportunities to help others this Thanksgiving. Within these opportunities, there are many ways to spruce up your resume or develop contacts. Continue reading ‘This Thanksgiving, Reward Yourself by Rewarding Others’
