From The Publisher

Dearest EXPLORE Reader, Oftentimes, life can be a series of mundane events, punctuated by an intense bright moment that you remember for the rest of your life. Some are good, some are bad, but all teach you a lesson. In the 8th grade, I played football for the Boerne Pups. I tried out for quarterback,…

Summer’s Last Hoorah!

It’s August and summer is drawing to a close. However, it’s not over just yet. True you probably won’t be able to make a quick trip to the Grand Canyon or Disney World but there are some pretty great things to do much closer to home. Definitely not day trips, these are places to go…

Troubadour

…Maybe it’s summer that’s making me think of snow and how happy I am that I don’t have to deal with it. I’ll take Texas heat, over a northern winter any year… As best as I can remember we were halfway through a February tour of the mid-west, playing an opening slot for our friends…

Snatched from a life of drudgery and hard work, dropped in breechclout or beaded dress into the life of a wild native child in a village…

PISSED

James 1:19-20 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. Yeah, that’s super, but right now I’m bona fide pissed off. I’ve been stomping around the house all evening, and I still haven’t…

Chappellet Vineyards

It’s that time of the year for summer vacations, and as we wind down to the end of the summer, all of us desperately try to squeeze those last days left into some productive local road trips. Today these seem pretty painless with dual zone AC, Bluetooth, DVD players, and all the other 21st century…

BOERNE LAKE I’ve ranted about this before, but I find it ridiculous that the City has set up that ridiculous little security hut out at the Lake where folks have to pay a silly little fee to go swimming. What irritates me more is that Boerne citizens have to prove their residency here in town…
