Happy Birthday, Lambda Center

This weekend, Lambda Center, here in Houston, celebrates its 30th year of operation. It's a big deal because hundreds of lives have been saved here, including yours truly. It's a big deal because this building is wholly supported by contributions from alcoholics and drug addicts. Today's operating costs often exceed $9000 per month. It's a big deal because there are more than 40 gay-oriented AA, Al-Anon and CMA meetings each week. And it's a big deal because it may be the finest such facility in the world. If you're in town tomorrow, please join us from 4pm -9pm.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the gifts of being present

for an extremely busy, yet peaceful week

for a really nice day, mostly spent with my better other half

I am using my second new computer this week. I only got it partially configured last night and don't yet have my old files and folders loaded. This one has sound and everything else a young woman older guy wants to have.

Have a good time at the Lambda celebration! Not only saving lives, but equipping them with Serene-O-Matic® transmissions.

I like the quotation from Betty B.

When I first got sober, I was down in Montrose at a guitar shop and went to Lambda for a 12:00 meeting. I called my sponsor that night and told her about it, I said "It was a great meeting, but all the guys seemed gay to me". My sponsor said "Keep coming back".

I would have to agree, Lambda is a very special place. Easily the nicest AA Clubhouse I have ever been to. Happy Birthday to Lambda!

Happy Anniversary LAMBDA Center. It is beautiful that recovery can be found anywhere. Some day I may need your resources if I am out that way. To me that brings much comfort.

Have a wonderful celebration. All of you help to keep it alive for others to find life!
