  • Simon Says: Here’s The Best Advice After ‘Harvey’ You Can’t Second Guess!

    Where do you start? Every word, adjective and expression has been used by someone else already so I won’t go there. I do know this: Houston is great city. It’s a part of me, and I have no doubt the “H” in H-Town won’t be connected to ‘Harvey’ one day. Nope, the ‘H” will stand for “Hero” because no one can second guess the character of everyone running things. But when it comes to second guessing, Harvey HAS brought out […]

  • Simon Says:  Getting bad press? Call the troops!  

    There’s no doubt President Trump has had a bad few weeks. Although, as they say in tennis, it’s on him with all of those “unforced errors.” But did you see that speech recently about how he is considering changes to the troop levels in Afghanistan?
