AN OPEN INVITATION: An open house can be a welcome mat for potential buyers Depending where you are in the real estate equation, the concept of an open house can be at once thrilling and terrifying.For the buyer, it can be the chance to get to see the inside of a home.

HAMMOND and PONCHATOULA - 06/10/10 03:07 PM
HAMMOND AND PONCATOULA When it comes time to look for a home, buyers look at several different aspects of the process. Included in the list, but not in any order, are price, size, location, design and offerings of the nearby area.

Hammond and Ponchatoula, two cities north of Lake Pontchartrain along Interstate 55, enjoy quality of life, all the amenities of the metropolis and a prime spot in the middle of the region. These two Tangipahoa Parish cities are tantalizing spots (0 comments)

God's Grace and Our Finances - 06/08/10 12:13 PM
God's Grace and Our Finances Proverbs 3:9-10 If you knew that something you desired could destroy your life, would you keep chasing after it? The Bible warns about a certain kind of pursuit that can cause one to: 1) Fall into sin. 2) Be mastered by foolish wishes. 3) Engage in activities that erode character. 4) Plunge into moral ruin. 5) Wander from faith. In spite of these dire warnings, many people are ruled by a longing to get rich. There is nothing wrong with being affluent so long as we follow God's rules for wise living.

The 2010 hurricane season is fast-approaching, and all seasonal forecast parameters are suggesting that the upcoming hurricane season will be quite active. In fact, every single parameter that made 2009 such a quiet season appears to have reversed for 2010. Let’s take a look at some of these seasonal forecast parameters to see what they are telling us about how many storms may form in 2010 and where they might track. El Niño/La Niña Sea surface temperatures (SSTs) across the Tropical Pacific can provide a major clue as to the activity of the coming season. When SSTs average (0 comments)
