The best school spirit video ever


This amazing show of student solidarity was made by the student body of the Cypress Ranch High School in Cypress, TX. A motivated student named Kaitlyn K. wrote and performed the song. I'm so proud of Kaitlyn and her classmates and hope that what they did inspires more high schoolers across the country.

Please share this with everyone you know. We need more love and acceptance like this, so that kids who are picked on have a chance. One bystander can make a difference in the life of a bullied kid

279 Artisan Trail show pics

It was a beautiful and cool weekend filled with classic cars, amazing artwork and fun. I got to see the new schoolhouse that was moved to Ben Wheeler from Emory. They did an amazing job refurbishing that place! Unfortunately I forgot to take pics of it, but I did get to take full advantage of the upstart car show going on at the same time as the artisan show. I didn't get many pictures but here are the ones I did get!

17th annual El Corazon Exhibit at the Bath House

It was a warmer than usual January evening at the Bath House Cultural Center.  I was excited as this was is my first gallery showing in Dallas. There were tons of people and an enormous buzz to the place. Elbow to elbow, we made our way through the show and found some really amazing art.  There was an a student area for school age kids. I loved it because they even had their explanations of their art written out.

WE had a blast, met some really cool people and enjoyed a really great show. I hope I get to do it again next year!

Rockport-Fulton, Texas Fishing, a fun place to go…


I wrote a story for the county Line Magazine about this great little area called Rockport-Fulton. They are two towns that share their pride and history. Read about it or better yet, make a trip down there and take a trip with Captain Slick, like Chad and I did. I'll post the story soon. We had the best time.
Visit Captain Appel's websiteand see what great time can be had!
(I created the website for him too.)
