Anyone Can Be A Ham!

I've written several posts here about my hobby of amateur radio (aka "ham" radio). It's a hobby for anybody interested in communications (emergency and otherwise), electronics, technology, of just having fun!

Take, for example, a third-grader from Lumberton, TX (near Beaumont), who recently obtained her ham license!

Here in South Texas, the concept of the siesta is not unfamiliar. Most of us know how brief, refreshing "power nap" (if one has the ability to take one) can give you that little "re-charge" of our internal batteries to get through the remainder of a tough work day.

Now, researchers at California State University Berkeley have proof that napping is not only good for you, it's natural for human beings to want to take siestas!

Patriotism Is Alive And Well In Texas

This is yet another reason I am proud to now call Texas my home! In Cypress, TX (near Houston), during the pledge of allegiance and moment of silence that opened Friday’s school day at Cy-Fair High School. Groundskeeper Clayton Allen Jr. set aside his equipment to honor the moment and a teacher took a picture of him doing it. That picture--and the story behind it--are quickly going viral!

Sailor Dad Surprises Cheerleader Daughter

I have to admit, I have a soft spot in my heart for videos of service men and women returning home from deployments into the waiting arms of their families. The long periods of separation are so difficult for all involved, which makes their homecoming celebrations something we--as a grateful nation--can share in their joy. Check out this video of one recent homecoming, where a dad who had been at sea for an extended period surprised his teenaged cheerleader daughter!
