Update on Flo

Again, I’ve been away a bit as my mom required major surgery which occurred earlier this week. She came out of it well and is slowly getting back on track. She will require some physical and occupational therapy, but, like I always say, she’s the toughest woman I know. For all of you who sent your well-wishes THANK YOU. Many of you know my Momma from Democratic events–she is the life of the party. One of her dreams while in ICU was about hosting a dinner for Hillary and her husband. Maybe we can make it come true.

Mayor Parker…

…knocked it out of the park today from all the tweets about the State of Houston address. The main message:  She is not done making Houston better. What I found most exciting was the announcement of Tweet My Jobs Houston, an online and mobile jobs platform which will publicize available jobs from local companies around Houston. There are other sites many of us have used in the past, but having a centralized platform that is quite “local” will go a long way for folks seeking the best jobs at any level, as well as for companies trying to recruit the best people. I’ll be writing more about it next week.

“Houston is the biggest economic success story in America, but the best can always get better,” said Mayor Parker.  “This free and user-friendly online tool is the new way to find a job and hire in Houston.  Job seekers will have instant and direct access to thousands of jobs via Facebook, Twitter, email or their mobile phone.  Starting today, you can walk down the street and view on your smart phone all the jobs available in your immediate proximity.  Likewise, this will greatly simplify the hiring process, providing any employer, regardless of size, with the same fast and free access to the best and brightest recruits available.  This is truly a game-changer for Houston.”

Music Break ~ George Jones – Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes

And as Alan Jackson once sang, “Don’t rock the jukebox, I want to hear some Jones.”
