A visit to San Antonio's stunning Majestic Theatre is a visual treat.  The website describes it this way:  "The Majestic remains one of the finest atmospheric theatres ever built. Inspired by Spanish Mission, Baroque, and Mediterranean architectural traditions, theatre patrons are transported to a fantasy villa. Walls become towers with windows of colorful glass. A rare white peacock perches on a balcony railing as doves are caught in mid-flight. Grape vines creep along the walls and luscious foliage flourishes. The vaulted "sky" comes to life as stars twinkle while drifting clouds pass by overhead. Balconies, tile roofs, arches, and columns, railings, elaborate ornamentation, statues, and a bell tower all aid in the transformation of the theatre into a mystical village."The Theatre wa...

Whether you live in San Antonio or are just visiting, this is one place (besides the Alamo) you should put on your "must see" list. San Fernando Cathedral was founded on March 9, 1731 by a group of 15 families who emigrated from the Canary Islands at the request, or invitation, of King Phillip V of Spain. They came soon after the founding of the missions.  The mission chapels were being used to educate the Indian population.  San Fernando was constructed as the parish home of the Canary Islanders since their homes were located near this spot. The cornerstone was laid in 1738 and the building was not open for worship until 1749. The first communion class was confirmed by the Bishop of Guadalajara in 1758. From the beginning the church has been the geographical center of San Antonio.  The...

The acidic properties of plain white vinegar make it a perfect green substitute for household cleaning products containing chemicals.  Here are a few ideas for using vinegar for cleaning your home. Bathroom grout can be whitened by applying vinegar full strength, letting it stand, and then scrubbing with a toothbrush or other small brush dipped in vinegar.  Soap scum can be removed using two-thirds vinegar and one-third water.  For hard water stains on fixtures, tiles, shower doors and porcelain use full strength undiluted vinegar.  Hard water can be problematic in the San Antonio area if you don't have a water softener. In the kitchen full strength vinegar can cut grease and clean the coffee maker. To disinfect wood cutting boards, use one- third water to two-thirds vinegar. Appliances...
