Church Festival/Monday Forecast/Mayor David Wallace/Hee Haw

There is an area of disturbed weather in the western Caribbean. It is showing signs of getting organized. It is close to land...but maybe we will get a Paloma yet. I like that name, don't you?

What a great day for being outdoors. The St. Laurence fall festival had perfect weather. Everyone was having a good time!!! The only down side of all this dry, peaceful weather is that we are at risk for high levels of ozone to develop. And, you should know that today we had some unhealthy levels of ozone which formed. An Ozone Watch is in effect for Monday...this means conditions are favorable for high levels of ozone to develop.

For Houston, Monday and Tuesday will be pleasant with lows in the 50s and 60s and highs in the 80s. Some showers are possible Wednesday as a low pressure area cuts off over the central plains. Looks like it will hang around a couple days which means we will cool off and should get a couple rounds of showers before it exits to the northeast by the weekend.

Conditions will be cool for the northwest, northern plains, and northeast. Look for some showers in the northwest.

Since we were at a church festival, I thought we could learn the word for church--iglesia, pronounced ee-glay-SEE-ah. I love to go to festivals at our iglesia.

Speaking of that, Sarah was back to her usual energetic self. That's her at right dancing on the stage. And check out the kid behind her--he was a dancing machine doing a combination of hip-hop, break-dancing and gymnastics. Sarah had to steer clear of those flying feet.

Your kids will be dancing and learning with our award winning Spanish DVD is available through,,,,,,, and Volume 1 of the Frank and Paco series is a Dr. Toy Top 10 Educational Product for 2008.

It's easy to forget that many people are still recovering and will be recovering from Ike for some time. Our church is adopting 33 families from Galveston who are staying at a hotel in Rosenberg. If you have clothes or time to donate to help them, contact

Former Sugar Land mayor David Wallace is having a book signing Monday evening from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Sugar Land Marriott Town Square. David will be signing his book Titled "One Nation Under Blog". Congratulations David!

Helping Sarah with a science project today, I learned about the thorax vs. the abdomen of an insect. You see the thorax is the part between the head and the end of the insect. It is where the legs and wings are attached. We have to make an insect which has the head of one type of insect, the thorax of another, and the absdomen of yet another. The abdomen is the end part. Now, don't you feel enlightened?

I was reminiscing with Sarah about watching shows like ShaNaNa and HeeHaw with my dad. So I will close with a link I found to a 9 minute beginning segment of a HeeHaw show. No matter what you say, that show was funny and entertaining. And once you get that theme song in your head, it's hard to get it out. Enjoy!!!

Have a great week everyone!!!
