'Society for the Prevention and Relief of Cancer'. started 1911 to 2015 still no CURE???? Where is all that money gone?
.Washington (CNN) In a rare joint action with attorneys general for each of the 50 states, the Federal Trade Commission says four cancer charities run by extended members of the same family conned donors out of $187 million from 2008 through 2012 and spent almost nothing to help actual cancer patients. Cancer Ball's are pure Bull ____

In 1946 a V-2 missile launched from the White Sands Missile Range took the first photo's of earth from space.. What's wrong here?
If cancer is cured, the drug company's lose money? $$$$

called (Jetero Ranch) They were: J. S.Abercrombie, Edgar W. Brown, Jr., George Brown, Herman Brown, J. F. ( Pat) Corley, Roy H. Cullen, J. Brown Cutbirth, W. H. Francis, Jr.,W. J.Goldston, ... many business men buying acres for the new Jetro airport. I knew Pat. Then the plan was to get the city to want an airport, and sell it to the city making double the $$$. The town was like a frontier . How did Geo, Bush get his name on it? $$$ payback? They said the old Hobby air port had to be shut down. We had a club on top of the old Airline Hotel, The Ogerria brothers owned it.all the airport Pilots stayed there. Braniff, Pan Am, Delta. Those were fun days. we Had great entertainers Henny youngman, Julie Christie, John Gary Tenor, lots of name acts. I remember Lenard Bernstein conducting the Houston Symphony. They had a 50th Anniversary, very exciting time in Houston. Joe Gaiconnie's Pizza on Kirby Dr?
JFK came in a convertible, Jackie was gorgeous.
I remember Lynn Saks, and the Lamar Hotel, Mamma had a hat shop. next to the Lamar. Looks like the hotel is not at Main and Lamar today. POOR HOUSTON , they have nothing left of their great history. The Rice hotel and coffee shop it's gone too. I saw James Cagney.and talked to him. In the drug store soda fountain.
We owned the Show Biz After hours club, at Maine and Holcombe Blvd. Another secret, Mayor Holcombe bought land and had a highway put in to get there, Taxes $, we paid for his highway.? Who doesn't remember Brown and Root, we took them to court, they tore up the street in front of Club. They were in Court with everyone. The owner of the Shamrock Hotel across the street, came in and he was a bigot, he pissed on our door as he left because there were Blacks sitting with Whites. His name was Glenn McCarthy (wild Cat oil) I was sitting with Arnett Cobb, a great Sax player who was Black. As we know just because you have money doesn't mean you have Class. Hovis started a show business career doing fashion shows at Neiman Marcus., He also played at the Show Biz for my Husband. Then as most our talent took off for Hollywood. His career included work as a drummer, singer, stand-up comedian, writer, producer of game shows and stage actor. TV Hogan's Hero's.
Larry in Hogan's Heroe's
Remember Paul Berlin KNUZ, he was a good friend. I met Peggy Lee one of the best voices and Mel Torme.

Everyone came in after 12pm and the big shows at the Shamrock,

My Daughter had so many Autographs. Remember the song,
"Baubles, Bangles and Beads", made famous by the KirbyStone Four?
Well they came in the Show Biz and saw Kenny
and they took him to Vegas. He Later joined some
singing group. I think he has had 5 wives and 4-5 kids.
Johnny Dunn, Dunn Insurance, think he was one of the businessmen
in the Jetro airport group.. He started Life flight, a very great man.
He had a son who had been in a bad plane crash.
Oh then there was Jones, that owned the Houston Chronicle,
and the Houston Oil club in the Rice Hotel.
Houston still had those iron posts with a horses head and a ring in
the mouth to tie up your horse.
They were down by the Viaductson the way to Stewart's Drive inn.
Stewart's had curly fries in 1954.
The other end of Main street had
Bill Williams Chicken house. With a big Indian on the roof.
Henke and Pillot's shucks I have some of that stock. Henke opened
with very little capital,
he opened a grocery store across from Market Square.
When he hired a young bookkeeper, Camille Pillot. He made him a partner.
The firm of Henke & Pillot was born.
Does anyone know if the stock is still good?
