Months of partisan battles in Texas concluded late Thursday as Republican House members passed new voting restrictions, moving the legislation closer to the governor’s desk.

The vote in the Texas House on the nearly 50-page bill, SB1, was 79-37 (mostly on party lines) and follows historic efforts by Democrats to block it.

In late May, House Democrats staged a dramatic, 11th-hour walkout to stop a vote before the legislative session’s conclusion. GOP Gov. Greg Abbott then called a special session,

The Original Cliff House (1863-1894)

After the Gold Rush, San Francisco’s population exploded and the city’s downtown area got very crowded with new buildings and neighborhoods. Real estate developers, eager to make more money, saw Lands End and its unparalleled beauty as a new place to develop. They constructed the Cliff House in 1863 as a fashionable resort for the wealthy. The modest one-story wood-frame structure was skillfully situated on top of the cliff overlooking Seal Rocks, providing breathtaking panoramic views of the Pacific Coast line.

During the mid-19th century, trekking out to Lands End was expensive and took several hours by horseback. To help people travel to this faraway place, a private company constructed a brand new road called Point Lobos Avenue. Eventually, a horse-drawn stagecoach made the trip every Sunday from downtown

Volunteer – Ronald McDonald House

Why do we need Volunteers?
Our valued volunteers are essential to the continuing operation of the Ronald McDonald House.photo_volunteer

Frequent family guests know that coming back “home” to the Ronald McDonald House means seeing a volunteer’s familiar warm smile to welcome them.

We treat our house as a home. As with any home, the work is never done! While we provide an excellent facility to the families, we often experience constraints which prevent us from providing the quality personal assistance and support to the families, that only a special type of person can offer.

Volunteers are an integral part of the support team to help keep the house safe, clean, comfortable and welcoming for the families in need.

Whever You Hang Your Hat

Four walls do not a home make. Or so the saying goes. But it is tough to get by without a place to warm your bones and lay your head. And as human nature will have it, feathering our nests and beautifying our surroundings is just part of the package.

So why can the most modest of hovels take on the warm and cuddly sensation of home, and yet the grandest of mansions may feel cold and empty? The eternal quest for where we lay our heads at night has been with us since the dawn of time, so why not play with the idea of what it is that makes a home just that? Is it the bricks and mortar, the curtains and wallpaper? Or the village we live in?

By using a house-building game, like Design and Build Your House on Agame.com,
