Healthy, Socialized & Up-To-Date on Vaccines
At Puppy Land LLC, we offer several types of purebred puppies to go to furr ever homes. Most of our puppies are Registered, Vaccinated and Dewormed, with a Health Contract as well.
Shih-Tzu's, French Bulldogs, Pugs, Miniature Schnauzers, Pomeranians, and Yorkies are regular breeds we carry.
ABOUT SOME THE BREEDS
Bred solely to be companions, Shih Tzus are affectionate, hypoallergenic, happy, outgoing house dogs who love ... Shih Tzus are beautiful, but they are also friendly, lively, and devoted companions.
Shih Tzu weighing between 9 to 16 pounds, and standing between 8 and 11 inches, are surprisingly solid for dogs their size. The coat, which comes in many colors, is worth the time you will put into it—few dogs are as beautiful as a well-groomed Shih Tzu.
Being cute is a way of life for this lively charmer. The Shih Tzu is known to be especially affectionate with children. As small dogs bred to spend most of their day inside royal palaces, they make great pets if you live in an apartment or lack a big backyard. Some dogs live to dig holes and chase cats, but a Shih Tzu’s idea of fun is sitting in your lap acting adorable as you try to watch TV.
Pugs are playful dogs, ready and able for games, but they are also lovers and must be close to their humans. Pugs love to be the center of attention and are heartsick if ignored. Pugs are square and thickset, usually weighing no more than 20 pounds. Their heads are large and round, with large, round eyes.
Miniature Schnauzers were bred down from their larger cousins, Standard Schnauzers. The bushy beard and eyebrows give Minis a charming, human-like expression. The hard, wiry coat comes in three color patterns: salt and pepper, black and silver, and solid black. Created to be all-around farm dogs and ratters, they are tough, muscular, and fearless without being aggressive.
The Miniature Schnauzer is a bright, friendly, trainable companion, small enough to adapt to apartment life but tireless enough to patrol acres of farmland. They get along well with other animals and kids. Minis are sturdy little guys and enjoy the vigorous play. Home and family oriented, they make great watchdogs.
Pomeranians are generally perky, friendly little dogs. They do not seem to realize they are small in stature and will occasionally tackle large dogs or at least verbally threaten them!
These are active little dogs that do need daily exercise, even if it is just a walk around the block. They are quite intelligent and do well in obedience competitions despite a small independent streak. As they age, they are more amenable to being truly lap dogs.
Pomeranians are often good alert and alarm dogs and can be prone to excessive barking. They tend to be good with children, but children need to be cautioned that these are small dogs and not as sturdy as the larger breeds.
The Yorkshire Terrier is one of the smallest dog breeds of terrier type, and of any dog breed. The breed developed during the 19th century in Yorkshire, England. Ideally, its maximum size is 7 to 10 pounds.
The French Bulldog is a breed of domestic dog, bred to be a companion dog. The breed is the result of a cross between Toy Bulldogs imported from England and local ratters in Paris, France, in the 1800s. They are stocky, compact dogs with a friendly, mild-mannered temperament.

For centuries, parents understanding the connection between play and development have made alphabet blocks standard equipment of the well-stocked toy box. Alphabet blocks appeared as early as 1693, when philosopher John Locke pointed out that “dice and play-things, with the letters on them to teach children the alphabet by playing” would make learning to read a more enjoyable experience. A century and a quarter later, Friedrich Wilhelm August Froebel, a museum curator who pioneered kindergarten, introduced geometric solids carved from wood. Known as Froebel’s “gifts,” they soon led to alphabet blocks. In 19th century America, these toys found their way into most schools, marketed as tools to help children recognize shapes of letters before learning to read. Nowadays, virtually all American preschools and many home playrooms store alphabet blocks. Traditionally, homemade blocks prevailed. Currently, Uncle Goose Toys and Old Fashioned Blocks produce and manufacture this vividly colored toy. Parents may understand that these blocks carry educational value, but children like them because their colors delight the eye, their pictures provoke stories, and their numbers, patterns, and symbols look nice piled up.
Factoyd: Architect Frank Lloyd Wright credited his interest in buildings to the alphabet blocks his mother gave him as a child
We've all been there. It's closing in on 7 p.m. on a Tuesday, and the last thing you want to do after a long day at work is cook up a meal that requires any effort. And sure, if it was just you at home, maybe you could get away with something quick and easy like a sandwich or a salad, but with a full house and other hungry people to feed, you need a solution. As it turns out, people have been turning to Hamburger Helper in the same situation for decades, whipping up a meal in just 1-2-3.
But it does make you wonder — what even is Hamburger Helper? What's the story behind this pantry staple, and where did it come from? Whether you're looking for a non-perishable food item to stock up on, or you're just running to the store for a quick dinner idea, this might just be the answer. But you may want to know more before grabbing for that familiar red and white box. To learn a bit more, we took a deeper dive. This is the untold truth of Hamburger Helper.
Hamburger Helper was introduced during a beef crisis
When there's a food shortage, consumers tend to grasp at straws, searching high and low for a solution to their problem. And that's exactly what Hamburger Helper was when it got its start — a solution. According to General Mills, America's weakened beef economy in the 1970s led to the launch of Hamburger Helper as a promise to stretch people's dollar (and their beef) further.
A meat crisis in 1972, caused by a change in the population of anchovies, drove up the cost of beef even more. As it turns out, farmers were relying on the anchovies as animal feed, and as less were in the supply chain, feed prices increased, causing beef prices to skyrocket.
With the rise in beef prices, even more American families were introduced to their new best friend — Hamburger Helper — which helped them to use just one pound of beef, paired with the box mix, to put dinner on the table for their family.
The Untold Truth Of Hamburger Helper
Hamburger Helper was the solution to a problem in the 1970s. And for most families, they found it to be a delicious solution. When Hamburger Helper was introduced, with five flavor options consisting of Beef Noodle, Potato Stroganoff, Hash, Rice Oriental, and Chili Tomato, it was kind of a no-brainer for people to utilize the pantry staple at the time.
Betty Crocker had introduced similar boxed meals in 1967, but those boxed dinners required the hamburger to be browned in one pan, while the noodles needed to be cooked in the other. Hamburger Helper allowed home cooks to prepare dinner with ease, throwing it all in one pan, and it instantly caught on. According to General Mills, 27 percent of households within the U.S. added Hamburger Helper to their pantries within its first year on the market, turning it into the regular stocking-up staple we know today.
As with most new products, fame and fortune don't last for long without some ingenuity. After decades on the market, it's not surprising that Hamburger Helper began to see a decline in sales — especially with all of the boxed food competition that's emerged since its inception. But General Mills wasn't letting go that easy. The company took an entire year to plan the pantry staple's makeover, relaunching the brand in 2013 after 42 years.
First thing's first, the name was changed from its 1970 original 'Hamburger Helper' to just 'Helper.' According to Yahoo! Finance, the name change came as the company was featuring other versions of the product, including options for chicken and tuna, along with the beef staple (thanks to a decline in the popularity of beef).
The packaging was completely revamped, designing it with the bold red and white color palette recognizable today. General Mills CEO, Ken Powell told StarTribune at the time, that Hamburger Helper wasn't doing enough to really refresh the products over the years prior to the relaunch, so it was time for a bold move.
As the brand leaders behind Hamburger Helper began to look at ways to save its fading appeal, changing their target demographic was part of the strategy in 2013. Long gone were the days of female homemakers and working moms being the only targeted buyer.
According to Yahoo! Finance, General Mills found that more young men were buying the product, so they decided to capitalize on that trend. "A lot of marketing efforts are just beginning," company spokesman Mike Siemienas told Yahoo! Finance in 2013 in regards to a social media campaign directed at men aged 18 to 30. Prior to the campaign, Hamburger Helper didn't have a Facebook page, so the company launched it in December 2012 to prep for its new rebranding program. The goal was to introduce singles and young parents in their 20s to the meal solution, providing a full meal with just one pound of ground beef and a box of Helper.
Hamburger Helper contains a ridiculous amount of sodium
As quick and easy of a meal solution that Hamburger Helper is, it does make you wonder what exactly is in that box. When a consumer utilizes a box of Hamburger Helper, they're combining the provided boxed ingredients with hamburger meat, milk, water, and sometimes butter. Sounds pretty simple, right? But when you dive into what the ingredients provided in the box actually are, you may end up consuming close to your daily recommended amount of sodium.
According to Livestrong, the mixes contain between 580 to 810 milligrams of sodium per serving, and that number increases once the meal is prepared with the corresponding ingredients, bringing you up to as much as 990 milligrams per serving. And if you're eating Hamburger Helper in small quantities, this may be okay, but chances are you're only splitting the box in a few ways, causing that sodium count to go up even higher.
According to the American Heart Association, adults should consume close to 1500 milligrams of sodium per day. So how close is that one heaping serving bringing you to that daily recommendation?
There are so many flavor options
Hamburger Helper has certainly come a long way since making its national debut in 1971 with its five original flavors. For one, it's not just all about the hamburger now. According to the product website, there are 24 options of Hamburger Helper, with flavors including everything from Philly Cheesesteak to Four Cheese Lasagna and Cheesy Enchilada. Of course, hamburger isn't the only meat option, either. The brand boasts five varieties of Tuna Helper, pairing the mixture with canned tuna, along with three varieties of Chicken Helper to pair with boneless chicken breasts.
But even with all of those flavors, of course, there are some that prevail. According to a vote on Ranker, the Cheeseburger Macaroni flavor of Hamburger Helper is an all-time favorite, with Stroganoff falling in second place. The HoustonPress, however, put Cheeseburger Macaroni in fifth place, with Stroganoff placing first.
One fan took to Reddit to share their love for Cheesy Enchilada and Double Cheeseburger Macaroni, saying they're "hands down the best." But for many, it may all just depend on personal preference, the flavors you're used to eating around the family dinner table, or the ones you were raised on that give you a bit of nostalgia.
You can keep Hamburger Helper on-hand for a long time
Hamburger Helper can sure come in handy for a lot of things. It was useful for families during a beef crisis to continue putting hearty dinners on the table. And, it's useful for singles in their 20s looking for something quick and easy to whip up. But perhaps most importantly, it's an ideal standby to have on-hand in your pantry when you need to grab something quick and easy for a meal.
And luckily, that little red and white box can last in a pantry for quite some time. The ingredients list for the majority of Hamburger Helper products include enriched elbow macaroni, corn starch, salt, wheat flour, sugar, modified whey, along with multiple seasonings and flavors. Included in that list is also citric acid and sodium phosphate, both of which act as a preservative, extending a product's shelf life. And while packages do offer a best by date (that's usually pretty far out), chances are, it'll be safe in your pantry for quite some time.
A box of Hamburger Helper was listed for $8,100
In comparison to most meals, the price of Hamburger Helper is pretty low. And really, that's kind of the point. You're certainly not going to break the bank buying this packaged staple to help feed your family or yourself. But one man decided to list a box he had for way more than the market cost.
Timmy Solar decided to post his box of "Antique Hamburger Helper" for $8,100 on Facebook Marketplace. And while Salisbury is a popular flavor, there was no way Solar actually believed he'd get that much cash for the dish.
"It's not really an antique," Solar told KTEM News. "I found it in a cupboard in an apartment I moved into. I posted it as a joke..." And while the box that was only three years past its pantry prime received plenty of comments and laughs, it definitely didn't sell for that much. In fact, Solar threw it away not long after the posting.
The majority of Hamburger Helper mixes call for the same ingredients. To whip up this pantry staple, you'll need ground beef, hot water, butter, and milk. And luckily, each box comes with its own individual flavorings, adding a bit of pep to the meal. But luckily, there are even more ways to spice it up.
Hamburger Helper offers helpful tips on its website and packaging suggesting add-ins for each flavor, like cooked bacon, shredded cheese, and fresh tomatoes for its Cheeseburger Macaroni, or chopped green chiles and salsa for its Southwest Pasta. But those aren't the only clever ideas for mixing it up.
One Chowhound thread received a flood of ingenious ideas, suggesting home cooks add things like pepperoni, Italian spices, and mozzarella or mushrooms and onions to the mix. Adding additional ingredients, throwing in a few veggies, or even baking the dish topped with cheese can really take this boxed staple to a new level.
The Hamburger Helper mascot dropped a mixtape
Staple foods that have been around for years certainly make themselves recognizable through their mascots. You know that when you see Tony the Tiger, you think of Frosted Flakes. Or, see the Pillsbury Dough Boy and think cookies, croissants, and biscuits. Hamburger Helper's mascot, Lefty, introduced in 1977 does the same trick. But that cute little red-nosed, white-gloved hand apparently has some hidden talents.
Lefty dropped a mixtape in 2016 as a creative marketing technique for the brand — as well as a very elaborate April Fool's Day joke.
It all started from a 2014 Tweet meant as a joke, dropping hints about a mixtape, and the response was astounding, with over 10 thousand retweets. And with the help of a student team from McNally Smith College of Music in St. Paul, Minnesota, along with video production students from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), the mixtape was launched, showcasing five original songs created by established artists, along with the clever students from McNally Smith and MCAD. Lefty starred in two music videos, even garnering the attention of Billboard, stating that Lefty was the hottest new rapper on the scene at the time.

he French filmmaker Albert Lamorisse designed a board game with simple rules but complex interactions, La Conquête du Monde (The Conquest of the World) in 1957. Purchasing the rights, Parker Brothers published it with a few small changes as Risk in 1959. It became the first popular game involving strategy, diplomacy, conflict, and conquest.
Risk players control armies of tokens on a world map board in attempts to capture adjoining territories from other players, battling by rolls of the dice. The winning player defeats and eliminates opponents and occupies all 42 territories on the board—and thus all six continents. There are various strategies for winning the game, special two-player rules, and today, optional rules to change the play. A Risk player employs strategy, or decision-making, that will affect the game’s progress and outcome. Part of the game’s appeal is that, unlike most war games, more than two players may compete.
Risk is the first such strategy game for multiple players, mass produced and enjoyed by generations. The game is considered a progenitor of many war games that followed it, such as Avalon Hill’s Axis and Allies and, by extension, strategy games called Eurogames such as The Settlers of Catan. Risk now encompasses multiple variants related to historical periods or battles, science fiction and fantasy, as well as video game examples. Its influence is touted by game collectors and experts, but on a personal level, many serious gamers state that their interest in these games began when they first played Risk.

Texas City ISD
DID YOU KNOW?
A small percentage of school districts in the state still give a local Homestead Exemption to taxpayers and Texas City ISD is one of them.
Most school districts have done away with the exemption to generate more local revenue. However, Texas City ISD has maintained the exemption, which is a benefit to taxpayers.
Because of this, homesteads in Texas City ISD are not taxed at the full appraised value. Homesteads are taxed by the school district based on the appraised value minus the state homestead exemption, which is $40,000, and minus the local homestead exemption which is $5,000 or 20% of the appraised value, whichever is greater.
Example: A home with an appraised value of $200,000 less the $40,000 state homestead exemption and the local homestead exemption of $40,000 is taxed on $120,000 (appraised value less state and local homestead exemptions).
This is a great benefit to Texas City ISD taxpayers.

Shared from THE CASTLE – CHRISTENSEN / MEIR / HARRIS / PIGNATARO
Deep in the heart of our small town of Santa Fe, Texas lies a castle. A stately castle that conjures up thoughts of kings & queens, dungeons & dragons, Knights of the Round Table, Romeo & Juliet, alligators & draw bridges, etc. One is only limited by their imagination. The castle has been owned by several throughout the years, and has remained a curiosity to all that do not know its history.
Mr. John Christensen was a Danish immigrant that came to the United States with barely more than, “two nickels to rub”. He came to this country in 1891, friendless, speaking only a foreign tongue, and with assets totaling sixteen dollars ($16.00). He went to work on the Galveston docks and saved his money. He bought a bicycle shop in 1899, and eventually became owner of the first Ford automobile dealership, John Christensen & Co., on Galveston Island. He also owned a sporting goods house. His hobby was farming on his 70-acre tract of land in Alta Loma, Texas. He had a brooder house, hog house, poultry house, grocery storage house, what he called an owners cottage, implement shed, store room, and lake Christensen. Christensen became a widower in 1912, and then married Nieska Vogel in 1930. He also retired from his business in 1930, and spent most of the remaining years of his life farming. It was said that he invited farmers from around the county to his Alta Loma farm for a demonstration of the first Ford tractor. Upon Christensen’s death in December of 1934, he left his farm to Nieska. It was believed that soon after his death, she had the castle built.
One of the many legends was that Mrs. Christensen built the Castle to give to the Catholic Church as a retirement home for the nuns. When she found that the church did not want the castle, she made it her home. It was written that Mrs. Christensen had a hotel that she owned at 15th street and Seawall Boulevard, and that she had it torn down to use the bricks in the building of the castle.
Another one of the many legends was that a wealthy Texan had the castle dismantled and imported from Europe and had it reassembled at its’ present location as a home for his mistress.
Even another legend is that an eccentric woman built the house to live out a childhood fantasy.
Mr. & Mrs. Frank Meir purchased the castle in 1954. Mr. Meir is said to have worked for an oil company in South America and the family was seldom at the home.
Mr. & Mrs. H. Dane Harris purchased the castle in 1966, and only kept it a short time.
Mr. & Mrs. Franco Pignataro purchased the castle in 1970. At one point they had converted the 26-room mansion into several apartments. He installed a fence and iron gates to discourage photographers and curiosity seekers. He installed a pool and a concrete gazebo in the front. The double front doors don stained glass windows, and the inside foyer is adorned with an elaborate stairway of highly polished wood. Chandeliers adorn the ceilings. They imported most of their furniture from Sicily. It was said that they planned to make it like an Italian villa in their homeland. I have heard that upon Mr. Pignataro's death the daughters now live in the mansion.
Franco was born April 3, 1929 in Catania, Sicily where he served as a Carabiniere (Royal Police) for 7 years before coming to America and settling in Santa Fe in 1954. Franco and Domenica operated Grasso's Egg Farm for 13 years in Santa Fe on Highway 6. In 1971, they opened Franco's Real Italian Restaurant on NASA Road 1 (it is great food, by the way) which is still in operation as Franca's Real Italian Restaurant. In 1978 they opened a second restaurant in Santa Fe, followed by a third on Telephone Road in Houston and a fourth was opened in 1979 in Galveston. Mrs. Pignataro was the woman behind the man. My memory of her was that she was a very faithful and religious woman.
The castle has had many legends associated with it over the years, and has held the curiosity of passing motorists traveling along Highway 6. Remember, you are only limited by your imagination. The true story of the castle may never be known, but that just adds to the fascination, curiosity and intrigue of the stately Castle in our hometown of Santa Fe, Texas.
