    To help spread the word and also gain a little more interaction among members, there is now a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Houstonxshakers Please join in on "Liking" and "Sharing" it. Just as Johnny Carrabba said, "You never know who will pave the way." Building some exposure could pave the way to future speakers who may be the spark of inspiration needed to change your life. Anyone have suggestions on methods/routes of creating further interaction and intellectual discussions?
