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. Please enjoy!
Summer is over for many of you so I hope the kids’ first few days back in school are going well AND that you are doing the happy dance if you’re getting a much-needed break. For the rest of us, there are still several days left with kids and fun…so read below for ideas on how to fill the time. And I’ve decided to tip my virtual hat to all the moms and dads out there with two rap songs my friends shared on Facebook -- enjoy "Daddy Skills" and a classic "Mamas Rap" with Carol Burnett and Julie Edwards! We parents deserve to be acknowledged and what better way than through rap???
Tonight I’ll be the speaker at this month’s meeting of I KNOW SOMEBODY HOUSTON, a network of women that provide solutions to needs via monthly meetings. My topic is “Do What You Love, then MARKET IT!” and the meeting will be at the Central Library downtown starting at 6pm. I’ll talk for about 20 minutes and then there will be time for socializing and networking and resourcing for needs of the women in the group. I hope to see you there!
As you may know, I love to support cultural activities – this newsletter is an example of that. I also love Houston, so back in March, I created a Facebook page, Houston Gems, to celebrate unique people, places, and things about Houston. Stop by and check out the Gems and feel free to add some of your own! And recently I decided that I was tired of negativity on Facebook, so I created a public “event” called “Enjoy Life (every day).” It’s kind of a crazy idea – taking a concept (enjoying life) and turning it into an event – but it’s really caught on. Many people are not only “going to Enjoy Life” but they’re also sharing on the page HOW they enjoy life! It’s so much fun – I hope you’ll join us. And, remember, it’s not really an event – it’s a mantra!
Have a great week and GO.FIND.FUN.
