   registration for the 2015 ABI Reunion in Houston is imminent (a link to online registration will follow this week), but we wanted to stress the importance of your arrival Deep in the Heart of Houston on Thursday night, May 21st, if you can swing it.

    The Houston Reunion Committee/ABI have "Texas-Big" plans unlike any other Brat reunion in the history of Brat reunions -- including an organized BRATStravaganza on Thursday evening.

    Please join us Thursday evening from 8PM to 2AM at a private party in The Black Swan - a famed nightclub/lounge owned and operated by the Omni Hotel. Simply take the elevator down to the bottom floor and enjoy drink specials, a dance floor (complete with disco ball), live DJ and karaoke -- just for Brats.

    And you globetrotters know that flying on a Thursday is more cost effective, so be sure to book your hotel room at the Omni for Thursday through Monday.

    If this news flash isn't enough to entice you to boot, scoot and boogie on down to Houston for Thursday night...stay tuned for our "Top 11" reasons to attend this reunion. Book your hotel room soon...BIG news travels fast and space is becoming limited!

    When Amber isn't at work, she spends her time trying to find places to camp and kayak since moving from NH to TX. An amateur chef, she is currently teaching herself the art of Moroccan cooking!  Yum!  Amber, her, hus

    band and her mother are raising four kids who are "hers, his, and not ours, but we'll keep them."

    As Database Director, Amber approves new membership requests and maintains existing database entries. Call on her if you have any questions or problems with updating your information in the database or accessing the directory.

    Happy 2015 -- the year of our 15th Biennial Aramco Brat Reunion in Houston this Memorial Day weekend (May 21 - 25). We think your immediate "to do" list should include finalizing your plans to attend this amazing event. If you have not already done so, we strongly encourage you to book your room(s) at the fabulous Omni Hotel NOW as there are only 60 rooms left! Everything is BIG in Texas...and this reunion is definitely going to be BIG!

    Past reunion attendees will be very familiar with the benefits of staying at the reunion hotel where much "reunion-izing" takes place into the wee hours of the morning. We can't wait to share our "Top 11 Reasons" why you should meet your fellow Brats in Houston, Texas this May. Registration will be opening soon, but you should reserve your hotel room(s) today!

    'Tis the season for parties, so who doesn't need yet another cheese ball recipe? Maybe even your momma's cheese ball recipe!

    "Food for Arabian Days and Nights," the third in our series of Aramco cookbooks, is now available for downloading. This one was published in 1980 by the Dhahran Women's Group.  The pretty illustrations were done by Rose Batato.

    We really enjoyed reading "Helpful Hints."  Emergency substitutions and instructions on how to make cake flour, whole grain flour," and "real" sour cream all speak to some of the everyday hardships that were just part of the adventure.

    If you missed the previous cookbook links, here they are again:
