Hill Country Rally for Kids

Hill Country Rally for Kids is an organization that holds many fundraising events throughout the year to support 501(c)3 organizations in the Dripping Springs and Hill Country area. The organizations they support provide services and assistance to children in need. On Saturday, September 23rd, they held a car show in downtown Dripping Springs. They had Mercer Street blocked off at Ranch Rd 12 all the way to 290. Cars were lined up on both sides of the street and even extended down some of the side streets. They had a really nice variety of 60’s and 70’s muscle cars,...

Medical Brigade 2017

This was my third time down on Honduras Good Works Medical Brigade. I really enjoy the friendships and camaraderie that develops on these trips. Over the last couple years we have been recruiting more Hondurans to participate. This year we had 28 Hondurans along with 65 Americans on the team. While most of the Hondurans were translators we did manage to get 5 Honduran doctors and 4 Honduran dentists to participate. On the final evening of the clinics we have a closing service where we offer people a chance to speak about what being on the team has meant...

What I found most interesting was this from Wikipedia, “Capitalism according to Marxist theory can no longer sustain the living standards of the population due to its need to compensate...

Hell No, Donald

My take on the Brexit is that people that have gotten screwed over by deregulation, tax cuts, and globalization are angry. So if you’re angry you have to find someone to blame (other than yourself) and the Brits decided to blame the EU and refugees. Forget accepting any blame for being gullible enough to vote conservatives that sold them down the river. So not really a good sign for Trump. People here are angry too but luckily the choice between good and bad is a little more obvious, I hope. Public education in the USA has taken a...

Las Vegas Baby!

I decided to travel to Las Vegas with Nancy this time. It was the middle of December and we didn’t have anything else to do. Actually we invited ourselves along with John and Carol. They had already planned this trip when we visited them in Houston so Nancy just invited us. For once the time change didn’t leave me with killer headaches. It probably helped that I slept in until about 9 or 10 each day. I took these pictures on one of the local tours called “Big Bus”. My first tour guide was fun and very knowledgeable. We...
