When we have spring-like weather in February, I am reminded of my precious former mother-in-law, Mimi. Mimi was raised in a rambling country house near DeLeon, the real home of Dr Pepper. She was the oldest of 16 children. They knew their garden and they knew the weather. She warned every year to not be fooled by those balmy breezes in the midst of winter.

Some bad ideas never seem to go away, especially in the Texas Legislature. That is certainly the case with the voucher movement to divert taxpayer dollars to private or religious schools.

For 2015, the QX70 is offered in two models – QX70 and QX70 AWD.

In 2015, the Infiniti QX70 continues to stand out with its elegant, aerodynamic style. Its sleek body features a long hood, stretched wheelbase and short front and rear overhangs. Up front, QX70 features a bold front grille and fascia design, while a strong front-to-rear shoulder line, tight greenhouse, kicked-back roofline and integrated rear spoiler highlight its silhouette.

We’re smack dab in the middle of winter here in Southeast Texas, but that definitely doesn’t mean it’s time to hibernate. Fact is this is one of the best times of year to take advantage of the many outdoor opportunities on the menu.

Topping the list is fishing. Take your pick — white bass, crappie, catfish, speckled trout or redfish.
