WHAT'S YOUR PICK THIS WEEKEND?
Greetings and welcome to GISH PICKS: A GUIDE TO CULTURAL ACTIVITIES FOR FAMILIES, a free weekly e-newsletter/blog I created as a service to the Houston community in 2003 in which I cull from the loads of activities in our city and pick three weekend events (“PICKS”) to recommend to parents, caregivers, and educators all over Houston. I’m a mom and am always looking for cultural – yet FUN! – events for my family and I am so happy to share them with YOU. My business grows by word of mouth so please enjoy the events and please share this blog. And be sure to tell the organizations you visit that you heard about them from me. And if you’re in Facebooklandia, please sidle over there and like our GISH PICKS Facebook page and share it with your friends and family and elsewhere on social media, too.

Are you still needing summer camp help? Doncha worry -- many camps still have openings as you can see in our latest curated guide to camps, here. If you want a list of over 200 camps to choose from, click here to access THE SUMMER BOOK® ONLINE: A GUIDE TO HOUSTON DAY CAMPS AND CLASSES FOR KIDS AND TEENS, a guide I’ve been producing since 2003. Or you can remember my new web page: www.daycampshouston.com – pass it on and tell your friends. I’ll also be highlighting CAMP PICKS on my Facebook page so be sure to check in there for ideas. My guide is the largest and most accurate online searchable database in Houston and you’re gonna love it when looking for camps! And, best of all, you can surf it from anywhere.
I just came back from an AMAZING, two-week road trip for my IGNITE YOUR LIFE! art project and was thrilled to be able to share my journey via my Facebook page. If you’d like to see how much fun we had igniting lives, please check out that page, LIKE it, and then click “See first” on the “Like” drop-down button. I will be doing much more with this project soon so you can stay informed not only via our Facebook page but also via my IYL email list, which you can sign up for on the main project page. I’d love to have you along for the ride!
This week’s VIDEO PICK is one of those “just because” ones. It’s the middle of the summer and I am dreaming of Hawaii so I wanted to share musician Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwoʻole's beautiful rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” – enjoy!
