Skol Vikings.

The result of tonight’s Vikings game against the Cheeseheads will dictate my mood for Monday.

Skol Vikings!

Pearland, Texas, fan page for final week of October

October 24th, 2010 by David Ruth

Pearland, Texas, logoIf you’re reading this post, you likely found it via the Pearland, Texas Facebook page that I admin. I started this blog because I needed a place to house longer items for the Pearland page that I could link to.

I’m also going to use this page for professional fun, personal mind dumps and, of course, community news. Please RSS or bookmark me, if you find it remotely interesting.

Now, back to Pearland:

Monday, we’ll have Manic Mondays, when any Pearland, Texas business can post an ad. Nonprofits may always post notes as long as it doesn’t promote a commercial business.

Monday-Friday, we’ll continue the daily ad for Paws & Friends. Comment on their ad each day to increase your chances to win Friday’s noontime drawing for 10 free days of doggie daycare and a pet grooming!

Wednesday, well, that day just is horrible. New theme: Whiner Wednesday. Whine all you want.

I’m still accepting photos of your wonderful pet for the Pets of Pearland photo gallery. Simply post your photo and your pet’s name, and I’ll move it over to the gallery.

That’s it for now. Have a great week Pearland.
