Meet Paul Gomberg, The “Rockstar Realtor” .  I actually stumbled on Mr. Gomberg while doing research for another blogpost but thought he was so interesting and a tad crazy 🙂 , that I wanted to introduce you to him too!

Yale Grill and Gifts in the Historic Houston Heights Area in Houston, Texas – Step Back in Time to 1923!

My awesome sister gets all the credit for this discovery! Yale Grill and Gifts has been a Houston landmark since 1923!!!! This was back when Corn Flakes cost .10 cents for an 8 oz. package, a pound of bread was a mere .08 cents, the first issue of Time magazine was published and flapper style clothing was in vogue.  I’d guess this makes it one of, if not THE oldest diner in Houston!  Once inside you’ll notice half of the place is the diner and half an antique store.  The part that is now Lovejoys Antiques and Collectibles used to house the long gone Yale Pharmacy.

Mini Road Trip Adventures with a Giant Squirrel and Pralines???!

A while back while passing by the small town of Refugio, Texas I saw the above Texas Boot, Blue bonnets and Cactus and have to snap a quickly.  Sadly, looks like South Texas Kitchen at 201 S Alamo St, Refugio, TX 78377 has since closed but I liked the sculpture 🙂  Refugio had 2,890 residents as of the 2010 census. 

Next stop…Sinton, Texas.  Now why on earth would I veer off in that direction? Yep, to see the “Largest Squirrel in Texas”, according to a clever billboard advertisement, so off in search of I drove.  Aunt Aggie De’s Pralines at 311 W. Sinton Street, Sinton, Texas would be the destination in the small, Texas town.

BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir

Still sick so I am “recycling” this older post for those that have never seen it 🙂 … hope to have new content soon 🙂

BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Stafford, Texas is breathtaking! It’s a place of traditional Hindu worship but respectful visitors are allowed.  The exterior is made of Turkish Limestone and interior of Italian Marble.  The hand carvings are stunning as you can see in the photos below.  It’s truly a sight to behold and worth a visit!

Note:  Mandir basically means a temple or place of worship.  There is a souvenir shop and plenty of photo ops!

Advice:  Check the Visitor Guidelines before you leave please to be sure you are dressed appropriately, etc.
