before and after the hurricane

McKay is a cop in the City of Pasadena which is slightly more inland directly behind Galveston, which is where Hurricane Ike hit. Here are some very good "before and after" pictures of Galveston that I found interesting.


welcome, child

I helped Madhuri prepare for her baby shower a little bit and was honored to attend.

They had a couple of Hindi rituals to bless and welcome the baby.

And had a full course meal followed by some games.


tired of having so much extra money?

I am supporting the effort to raise money for AIDS by walking in this annual fundraising event 10K. Please consider an online donation here.

Our team is named the "Techno Chickens - Hatch Support for AIDS" I am sending anyone who donates more than $100 a dozen freshly baked home-made cinnamon rolls. Email me at mona dot mccowen at gmail dot com with your address and proof of your donation for our team to receive your cinnamon rolls. (They are really good - see a prior post for pictures.)
