Jerry Stubbs was born to sell. He started out with bread, then moved on to lawnmowers, before settling on motorcycles. His love of bikes eventually culminated in Stubbs Harley-Davidson, a venture that began in 1965 and is now the oldest dealer in the Houston area. Jerry has since passed on, but the Stubbs sales staff honors his credo of taking care of the customer. They pride themselves on making sure no one waits more than 20 seconds before being greeted by a sales member.
Overseeing the chromed-out cache of new and used Harley-Davidsons, general manager Colin Lee often helps match first-time riders with their ideal bike. Additionally, the shop’s service department assists in identifying torque, power, and riding problems, while also souping up bikes with customized add-ons such as audio systems, paint jobs, and Honus Wagner rookie cards to shove in the spokes.
Until cruise ships start bringing along a second, smaller cruise ship for everyone's cars, travelers need to stow their vehicles somewhere. 81st Dolphin Parking's secure lot sits a mere city block away from the cruise ship terminal in Galveston, protected by fencing and night security guards. A complimentary shuttle service whisks visitors and their luggage off the terminal and picks them up at the end of their trips.

Ben Chen has experienced his share of success in his nearly 30-year photography career?his work has been published in such publications as Cosmopolitan, The Los Angeles Times, and ESPN Magazine, and he has lent his expertise to some of the nation's largest corporations, including Procter & Gamble and The American Red Cross. In 2006, the photographer began to notice that more and more novices were purchasing complex DSLR cameras, and that gave him an idea. Chen decided to share his wealth of knowledge with aspiring photographers by creating the 4-Hour Newbie Photography Boot Camp, which teaches students how to shoot manually with their DSLRs and create artistic, professional-quality photos. Since then, more than 5,000 students in 20 cities throughout the country have benefitted from these classes. In 2013, he acquiesced to student demand and created Part II of the class, which goes beyond photography basics by diving into post-production techniques. Nowadays, students can take both Part I and Part II in the same day, helping them go from student to master in less time than most action-movie montages.
