I stepped outside the other night after Hurricane Harvey and suddenly something flew by me. I thought it was a bat because of the five to seven inch wingspan. I followed it and found it to be a moth. After further researching, I learned it was a Black Witch Moth. They tend to be natives of Central America and Mexico, so I find it cool to see one. This is my first sighting ever.

In European folklore, moths were regarded as witches.  Not a big stretch.  Witches are creatures of the night.  Moths are creatures of the night.  Witches can transform themselves….  Moths can transform themselves (metamorphosis)…. Witches fly.  Moths fly.  Witches have long noses.  Moths have long noses.

–John Himmelman, in the book, Discovering Moth

Good luck, bad luck, whatever. I find it quite beautiful.

Hurricane Harvey is approaching and the grocery shelves all over Houston are depleting. A metroplex with five million plus people and people are looking for food. This is very common for us in Texas during hurricane season. Surprisingly Jello and dish soap were plentiful.  If a hurricane can empty the shelves, just think if truckers strike or a pro-longed war happens. Food! Do not take it for granted or waste it.

Recently I had my first trip to the Majestic Theater in San Antonio. This theater was built in 1928. It has numerous carvings and hand crafted designs throughout the theater. It is a real treasure and a great place for live shows.

Macro photos always capture detail that so many of us just pass on a daily basis. The color of the world around us is so bright and cheerful, yet many miss it. Enjoy the beauty if these flowers!

We are a city taken over for Super Bowl 2017. People are coming from all over to enjoy our lovely, red elephant, conservative state home of Republican governor Greg Abbott and many President Trump supporters. We are free of the liberal riots plaguing other American cities. We are state income tax-free, you can carry a gun, and we have plenty of work and opportunities. We have numerous fine dining establishments, excellent housing, southern hospitality, and people from all over the world who embrace America. Sometimes we disagree, but we respect each other. We see ourselves as Texans no matter where we come from and we love our country, which is Texas. Laughs! Texas America! The Great Lone Star state. Enjoy your stay and Go New England Patriots! Five for Brady.

Some of my favorite culinary creations for 2016. Mexican, American, Vegan, Indian, Mediterranean, African, Hamburgers, Russian, Italian, Greek, Dessert, I love it all!
