Coldspring Chamber hosted a ribbon cutting at Bullet Grill House in Point Blank on August 14.This was a big surprise because this new Bar and Grill is big and beautifully decorated. After the ribbon cutting I ordered from the large menu and really pigged out on the Brisket on Sourdough Bun. It came with pickles and my side choice, Loaded Potato Salad. It was great! I talked to Barb Moran, who with her husband Chris, owns the business. They opened on June 14th and word must have spread quickly because the place was quite full at 5.30 PM. Later I found out that Wednesday is 'Western Night' and also Bingo night. Winners get a free beer or food order. It looked like fun.

       Barb said that they have different activities most nights. Monday it's 'Team Trivia Night'. Tuesday is 'Tex Mex night' when the food is devoted to a Mexican menu. Saturday is 'Spin The Wheel' when every hour the wheel is spun to decide what the 'special' will be for the next hour. Sunday? Brunch is served from 11 AM- 3PM. Food is breakfast style with biscuits and gravy, and Mimosas are $1 each!  The Bullet Grill House has a web site ( and can be found on Facebook and Instagram. If you want to call them for information or to order food, call 936-377-5357. It is really a great place to visit and a sign that our area is attracting some excellent eating places!

       San Jacinto County Master Gardeners are planning a new certification class in October. If you are interested in becoming a certified Master Gardener, call Tina Andersen at 832 607-9222.

        First, let me tell you of a new phone scam which I received this morning. A very professional female voice told me she was 'The Social Security Office' and my social security number had been fraudulently used in 'south Texas'. She directed me to talk to a representative by 'pressing #1.' Knowing the Social Security would not be calling me and they would have used my name if they had, I pressed #1 and another woman asked me for my name and #SSN. So I said "If you called me to tell me of fraud, you will already know it," at which point the scammer hung up quickly! So, please watch out for this latest effort to get our important information. This one sounded very professional and both women had American accents.
