A new site/page for a business venture has come out for the ATX by Desmond. Desmond is a middle school student who started his service in March on the weekends. Figuring he'll expand days during summer break. He wanted to make some $$ to save up for a car when he's old enough to drive. He decided to start his own (Franklin's) BBQ line waiting service. He will get up early and do the 5ish hour wait in line for Franklin's BBQ for a fee. When he gets close to the front, you take over for him. 5% of each fee he makes goes to the Austin Dog Rescue, because that's where he got his dog. HOW AWESOMELY BRILLIANT IS DESMOND!
Check out his page/site 'BBQ FAST PASS". He has gotten a lot of emails so he nicely asked to be patient w/ him. He's trying to get to everyone! DESMOND ROCKS!
Happy Friday Eve! For some it's Happy because you woke up in your bed, started your coffee maker to have coffee in your favorite mug, took a shower and got ready in your bathroom w/ a change of clean clothes to get into. This was not the case for many in the Central Texas area today and many days coming thanks to the storms/flooding. In the San Marcos/ Wimberley area alone there are over 1,400 homes w/ significant damage and at least 60 homes that floated off their foundations. Over 1,000 people are displaced and have no home to go to right now, or have one they have to do some MAJOR CLEANING & FIXING UP.
If your Friday eve started in your home, then do something nice to help those who don't have that right now, so they can get closer to that type of Happy. You take it forgranted until you don't have it. You 'll feel good you helped.

Relief, Recovery and Cleaning up is on today and many, many more a head for many in the Central Texas area. When you click the photo below you'll see a video that shows Ted & I had this much water outside of our back patio yesterday in around 2 hours. We had a small window leak in our bedroom, but we were lucky and thankful no big damage. We have been there before in NO/ Katrina Hurricane Flood. Losing everything then, we understand how many feel in Central Texas after this Memorial Day Weekend of crazy wet/ tornadic weather and flooding. It was crazy how much rain came down in a short amount of time. Areas in downtown ATX ended up flooding with water in some businesses chest high. There are many ways to help. It can make you feel good helping out others who really need it. Good Karma too! http://www.mix947.com/How-to-Help-/21555442#.VWSykc9VhHx
See the before & after 2 hours of the much longer storm front in ATX yesterday/ Memorial Day!
