Torchy’s Taco’s runs with a motto of “Damn Good.” Well, I finally got around to trying them out. Their motto lives up to it’s name. I had a great experience with service and the quality of food. If you love a BIG fat taco like me, then you got to try em’! Oh, and the chorizo queso is legit. Pass the chips!

I am a native Houstonian of 48 years. I have never seen damage like what I have witnessed on the Texas Coast and in Houston, Texas from a Hurricane. I had some scary moments taking these photos. Our schools are closed for a week, our airports are closed, traffic is two-way on one way freeways, many people are in desperate and life-threatening situations, and we have 20 more inches forecast. This will cause damage for months to come on a financial level. These photos were taken in some of the highest sea level points in Houston. May God protect everyone and bring us all together! It is times like this that we realize we are all human.

Indian food is absolutely delicious! With Indian food you can quickly learn you do not need meat to have an awesome meal. Thali in India means “Platter.” Maharaja Bhog offers “THE BEST” Thali experience in Houston. The food is full of flavor, fresh, and the service is exceptional. Check them out! maharajabhog.com

The Blue Nile Ethiopian Restaurant in Houston located at 9400 Richmond offers amazing food, service, and authenticity. If you are in a hurry go somewhere else. They cook food from scratch. Excellent food! That takes time. Check it out! http://www.bluenilerestaurant.com/

I recently visited Bayou Bend the magnificent estate of Ms. Ima Hogg, the daughter of James S. Hogg, first native-born governor of Texas. It is a beautiful 14 acres, historical, and a great place to take photos. Here are a few from my trip.

I see a flock of interesting birds in my feeder. At first, from a distance, I thought them to be migratory sparrows, but the camera revealed something amazing. A Nutmeg Mannikin or Scaly-Breasted Munia. According to Audubon Society they are non-native to the United States. They may be migrating over as new permanent residents or breeding in the wild as pet escapees. Whatever the case, I have new birds eating seed. I caught photos of both the male and female. Exciting yes? Enjoy the photos!
