Pops of Sillery: An Evening Benefitting the Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Houston

Gilbert and Sullivan - Pops of Sillery Join me and the Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Houston as we celebrate at our annual spring fundraising Gala! This year will feature a cocktail party atmosphere with pop-up performances by Alistair Donkin and featured Society performers throughout the evening. Enjoy “pops of sillery” (champagne), light bites, and the wonderful songs of Gilbert & Sullivan while bidding on the silent auction, trying your luck on the wine pull, and enjoying a parade of G&S costumes.

This evening will also honor our outgoing Society President of 33 years, Steve Robbins, as the Society thanks him for his many years of devoted service. Help us ensure that the magic of Gilbert & Sullivan is available to Houstonians for years to come by hobnobbing with people of similarly exquisite taste while raising money for a delightful cause!

Hurricane Harvey – Brays Bayou Watch

Friday night in our area of Houston was windy, but not too bad. A little rain, but not much until Saturday morning, then it tapered off by 9. Round Two just started…this is going to be the real test. This is the link to the nearest Harris County Flood Warning System station upstream from our house.The main site. Click on “Channel Status” on the left to see the stations that are nearing (yellow) or over (red) the tops of their banks.

I’m back…

Sorta.  Finally got around to migrating from the old host.  Will try to not be a stranger.

In the meantime, be excellent to one another.

Help me help those with MS

I will be participating in the MS150 bike ride from Houston to Austin this weekend to help raise money for research into multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system. Every hour, someone is newly diagnosed with MS.

I registered for the BP MS 150 because I want to do something about MS now. I’m asking you to support my efforts with a tax-deductible donation.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is dedicated to creating a world free of MS and they need our help. It’s faster and easier than ever to help: Simply click the link at the bottom of this message or, if you prefer, send your check payable to the National MS Society – P.O. Box 4125 – Houston, TX  77210-4125.  Be sure to write my name and “BP MS 150” in the memo section of your check.

Your contribution funds crucial MS research and helps families with MS lead powerful lives. I appreciate your support and promise to update you.

For more information about the National MS Society, how proceeds help and other ways you can do something about MS now, visit www.BPMS150.net
