Well, what is a mayhaw? If you’re not a wildlife buff, you wouldn’t have a lamb’s idea what a mayhaw is, technically speaking. They taste putrid, but darn it, those little things make for some good jelly. And I ain’t kidding about it.

I came across this particular jelly when a neighbor brought some back from her trip across Texas. Said it was good ‘pikin’ since these bottles don’t come often. Most of the folks don’t have an idea how to make jelly, much more mayhaw jelly. Well, what in tarnation is a mayhaw?

The Moody Gardens

'font-style:italic;' class='tvbyline'>by Ian Kleine

The Moody Gardens can be found in Galveston, Texas and is hard to miss if you’re looking well enough. It is owned by the city of Galveston but funded, supported and operated by the Moody Foundation. The agreement must really be that complicated for this to happen.

The gardens are divided into three features, all of them pyramids. The first one being the Aquarium, a pyramid that hosts aquatic life, whether freshwater or not. The second, the Rain forest pyramid contains tropical plants and animals, some coming from the other side of the world. The third attraction, the Discovery pyramid, acts like a museum that hosts branches of science and its wonders. Currently, there’s a fourth attraction, the Palm beach, where a sandy lagoon could be seen, most children preferring this over the first three.

Scrapple Time

'font-style:italic;' class='tvbyline'>by Ian Kleine

What is a scrapple, you say? Scrapples are one of the food faves around the state of Delaware. They’re made from pigs, well for the exception that it doesn’t contain almost any pork since scrapples consist of almost all body parts of the pig.

It may sound highly-unappealing but this has become one of the more popular treats around the region. Most legends would say that scrapple started in Pennsylvania, while others would argue that it came with the settlers from Germany (the region of Lower Rhine) who decided to finally live in Philadelphia.

Good chance, you’d be asking for the Sunken Gardens if you’re looking for this place, since that is what others call this Japanese Garden in San Antonio, Texas. The reason for the term is because the gardens are located inside an abandoned limestone quarry. If you can’t find the place, ask for “Chinese Tea Garden Gate”. It’s what they had in the registrations.

The Japanese gardens had a long turbulent history. Starting first as a quarry, it had been developed into a garden under the direction of the city. Several companies had bloomed under the park with the workers also benefiting. The theme of being Japanese was added later on when the basic outlays were introduced. The funds from different donors came, where the extensive outlays were introduced.

Our most recent success story from Jill

When my step mother gave me my first supply of green tea I kind of laughed at her. I said to her, how is tea going to help me lose weight? Very politely she told me to shut up and just follow the instructions, and that is what I did…

Texas Barbeque

'font-style:italic;' class='tvbyline'>by Ian Kleine

The very word ‘barbeque’ commands great respect and effect that it leaves most stomachs growling, and mouths watering when their thoughts fly off to a sight of hot, steamy, juicy, and sauce-laden, meaty goodness…broiled perfectly in slow-charcoal heat and browned to perfection. Texas has extensive knowledge with barbeques, after all, the Lone Star state is known for its love of anything meat.

Barbeque has a big differencefrom grilling or broiling. It is the unique way of cooking over fire by indirect heat (either coal or wood). Because it is indirectly cooked, the flavor and aroma tends to develop and contributes to the overall taste of the meat.

Cherry Blossoms in Georgia

'font-style:italic;' class='tvbyline'>by Ian Kleine

The city of Macon is dubbed the Cherry Blossom Capital of the World with good reason. The streets are filled with the numerous blossoms, all from the trees in the sidewalk. The place reminds you of a modern Japanese-American themed city, as the usual-Japanese flowers float amongst modern American buildings and asphalt-lined streets.

The area is bustling and filled with Yoshino cherry trees, and every Spring, they fill the air and the ground with their pale pink petals. It is a very extravagant display of color, which leaves their audience speechless and breathless for the first time.

The city of Houston is the fourth largest city in the United States, located in Texas.

As a large city, it is quite easy to find good things to buy, good food to eat, and good places to visit. Texans would claim Houston is a good city, and the number of tourist spots in the area would keep anyone entertained for as long as their visit would allow them to.

For the naturally curious, their is the Houston Museum of Natural Science, an altar for the different branches of science. The museum has a butterfly center, a planetarium with stars and the usual revolving satellites, models of dinosaurs and much more.
